Get More Bookings WITHOUT More Followers (Hot Lead Hack)

 

  • Are you struggling with reaching your OWN audience on social media, let alone finding a NEW audience to connect with?
  • Are you wondering how you will EVER grow your business if you don't find new people?
  • Do you wish you could get new bookings WITHOUT getting new followers?

THIS VIDEO IS FOR YOU!

Get More Bookings Without More Followers

Recently, Instagram has revamped their algorithm (yet again) and it's throwing many business owners into a tizzy...but should it?

Yes, it's getting hard to get our message out there. That's just the name of the game in the future, I think - especially on these FREE platforms.

But, social media is STILL a great way to grow your business for sure - even WITHOUT reaching a broader audience in most cases.

Just think about it...

If you only had 50 followers on social media, wouldn't you be STOKED if all 50 called you to help them book their next trip?

Of COURSE you would! 

Sooo....why are we always trying to get new followers, then?...

How Travel Agents Get Bookings From Consumer Events

Have you ever attend a consumer event to look for leads & clients for your travel business?

Did you feel overwhelmed with all the possibilities and ways to prepare for the show like I was?

You know, I remember doing my first bridal show and I was like, "oh my gosh, what do I do?"

We've seen people handing out little chotchkies, giving out postcards, drawing for  prizes, signing  people up for their email newsletters and so on... and it CAN be really overwhelming to sort out what COULD be done vs what MUST be done.

I got so confused that it almost stopped me from participating in ANY events altogether!

But I knew that NOT participating would be automatic "failure". So I didn't give up.

And after researching, preparing for and participating in many, many consumer event opportunities, I'm MUCH more confident about how to choose appropriate events, how to plan for them and how to get the best return from my investment.

Why People Leave Your Video & How To Keep Them Watching

Why People Stop Watching Your Video - And How To Get Them To STAY!

So, I KNOW it's happened to you before if you've been doing video, right?

After months or even years of digging your heels in and being fearful, you've finally realized a few things:

Get Them To OPEN Your Emails - 3 Tips!

Are you TIRED of spending so much time and effort into crafting the perfect email only to finally hit the "send" button and... NO ONE OPENS IT??

Nurturing is such an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to getting those sales.

And if we can't nurture them, how will our business grow?

I felt the SAME way until I learned to tweak these 3 things!

Write these down and start getting people to open your emails TODAY!

1. Use the recipient's NAME in the subject line

People LOVE it when you use their name - both written AND spoken- so use it whenever possible!

Now, I have to admit that I can't do that in most of my funnels because I made the mistake of NOT asking for their first names when they opted into my email funnels.

BUT, according to a study done by Marketing Dive , email open rates increased by 7% when the subject line was personalized with the recipient's name

And who wouldn't LOVE a 7% higher open rate!!

How To Tactfully Turn Down Unwanted Travel Business

How to Tactfully Turn Down Unwanted Travel Business

- Do you wish that EVERY trip you booked for people would be one you'd LOVE to work on, but you're not sure how to turn those other trips down?

- Do you worry that people will expect you to take on trips that seem impossible to research and will give you LESS profit than you're used to?

- Are you afraid that turning down business will eventually lead to the loss of the traveler forever & ever?

If that sounds like you, you're in the right place!

I recently turned down another trip to Asia.

I gotta be honest. I'm not the least bit interested in traveling there, researching it OR making just 10% commission. I've done it before and put SO much more time and effort into the $25000 booking and STILL made less than most of the trips I book in my niche in less than half the time.

So, I honestly didn't have a problem turning it down...

Want to know the 3 "magic ways" to be "PC" and polite when turning down unwanted...
