Create a Facebook Group / Business Page
People love to search social media, looking for what they need. Creating a Facebook, Google, or Yelp business page is also a great tool to make you stand out as a professional in the eyes of your customers.
Customers also love to work with people who have reviews and ratings that show experience. Unless you get your first sales, it may take time for you to get reviews. Something you can do in a short time is to write posts and content about your travel recommendations. This will help visitors see you as an expert and professional who knows the travel industry.
You have to show future customers confidence; that choosing you is the right choice.Resources How to setup a facebook business page: https://youtu.be/3MxK6wZurUs
Create a Business Website
Another great resource to promote yourself as a takeabed travel agent is to create a business website. There are dozens of sites today that allow you to make a website without coding skills. Sites like squarespace.com, wordpress.com, wix.com are very friendly and do it yourself options that will help you stand out.
Creating a business website will allow people to reach you and discover you when looking for travel agents online. It doesn’t have to be fancy; the goal is to explain and show customers that you are the right professional to help them book their hotels.
As a note this isn’t required, even those who don’t have sites can still do well as a takeabed travel agent.
Once you create a Facebook, Google, Yelp business page, or even a website, you can begin promoting yourself with advertising. You don’t need a large budget to find travelers. It can be done for as little as $4-10 a day.
As much as you can earn as a takeabed travel agent, that is well worth it.
We are also in the process of putting together videos for you to learn how to advertise. In the meantime, these are great resources we’ve found to help show you how to advertise on social media and Google.
Business owners and top executives often travel for business. This is an excellent source of potential customers as you can reach these people directly by doing some research.
Great tools to find business owners and top executives are LinkedIn and Facebook. The upselling point with direct outreach for business owners and top executives is that you can save them a lot of time and money by doing the work for them. This type of customer is typically really busy, and you can make this part of a business simple.
Attend Local Events and Network
Another great way to meet new people and potential customers are to attend local events to Network. This will allow you to promote your business outside of your circle and start finding customers who can also share your services by word of mouth.
If you’re not an extrovert and don’t like attending large group gathers. We recommend joining Facebook groups or smaller meetup groups on meetup.com.
Promote on 3rd Party Sites
Today there are many sites available for you to promote your services as a business. You can put yourself out there as a takeabed travel agent on many of these sites and let possible travelers find you.
Making yourself visible and available to travelers will be the best thing you can do you for business. “If your business isn’t online, it doesn’t exist” – Gary Vee.
