The Home-Based Agents Connection: It’s Personal
Are you working from home, creating a successful home-based travel agency? Do you have clients and businesses already in the works but are lacking access and opportunity to connect with suppliers? After 30 years in the home-based travel business, we know this is not easy. How do you make those important contacts with travel vendors when they are not convenient to meet and your only option is over the phone, if you can even get a person on the other end of the line? You crave the one-on-one contact that can make you stand out in the crowd. Seminars, trade shows, and vendor fairs may come to your area sporadically and perhaps inconveniently but they do not offer the quality interaction you are looking for to best serve your clients.
While working as a home-based agent, it is extremely important to stay abreast of the newest and most relative products your clients may want to purchase.
Unfortunately, taking training courses on the supplier websites gives you information about their products but does not allow for questions or information unique to your specific business needs. How do you get a rep to give you the time necessary to learn about their product, how to sell their product, and learn how to use their booking engines? Those of us in the industry also know, it is not “If a problem arises,” but “when a problem arises.” And we also know a personal relationship with a rep goes a long way in these situations.
At Incentive Connection Travel, we understand the importance of our agents having a connection with suppliers and know that having access to reps is invaluable to their success. We give you the tools necessary to get immediate contact with any rep you need. We understand as a home-based agent, you deserve the attention of travel vendors. We offer weekly meetings with different suppliers where you have the opportunity to participate in vendor presentations and interact with them posing your own questions and concerns. We also offer our agents in-person special events, whereas a group you have the ability to interact with supplier representatives, and your fellow agents. It is a win-win for everyone.
