KHM Travel Group Adds New Tier to Top Agent Program
What does it take to become a top-producing travel agent? In one word, experience.
Experience comes from online and live training, working through real-life challenges, and learning from the expertise of others. A little bit of encouragement doesn’t hurt, either!
Any smart -- and motivated -- business owner knows that to grow their business, they must set obtainable business goals. KHM Travel Group launched their Pinnacle Elite program in July 2012 to help their independent travel agents reach that $100,000 travel revenue threshold.
The Ins-and-Outs of Basecamp
Earlier this year KHM Travel initiated a new program, called Basecamp, for agents who have reached $50,000 in annual travel revenue. They’ve invested their time and energy into training and marketing their business, and they just need a little extra nudge to hit the next level.
"The response to Basecamp has been amazing so far. The innovative tools we’ve provided our agents are helping them grow their businesses and get excited about reaching new goals"
- Marie Smith, National Training Director
Benefits for Basecamp members include exclusive booking incentives, training webinars, a members-only monthly newsletter with selling tips and supplier information, and $25 KHM Cash to be used towards any of the host agency’s live training events. In addition, they are recognized in KHM Travel Group’s Travel Agent Portal.
“The response to Basecamp has been amazing so far. The innovative tools we’ve provided our agents are helping them grow their businesses and get excited about reaching new goals,” said KHM Travel Group’s National Training Director Marie Smith.
Real-Life New Agent Success Story
With the extra mentoring and training opportunities provided by Basecamp, even new agents can see their business take off. Take Stacey Ray, of North Carolina, who has only been an agent since November 2014.
She attended one of KHM Travel Group’s New Agent Boot Camp training sessions a few weeks after joining, and from there, it was full speed ahead.
In June 2015, she had made enough travel sales to join Basecamp. She is on track to reach the Pinnacle Elite level by the end of July.
“I am really looking forward to learning from other high-achieving agents and hopefully, to share with them some of my successes,” said Stacey about her hopes for joining KHM Travel’s top-performing tier.
More about KHM Travel Group
KHM Travel Group is looking forward to welcoming more of their home-based travel agents to Basecamp, which is really just a temporary home before they make the final ascent to Pinnacle.
Currently there are 167 agents in Basecamp, with more being added every month. With the experience they’ve gained on the path to reaching their goals, they’ll be able to help guide the next wave of new KHM Travel Agents to the top!
