3 Revenue-Boosting Strategies For Your Travel Business

Apr 8, 2021 | Abundance

It sure can be fun to be a travel agent.  You spend your time focusing on exciting places to go and things to do.  You get to be your own boss, set your own hours, and even do your job from a beach chair in the 🏖️ sand or poolside.  And the best part is that you are doing something you love and making other people very happy while you’re at it.  😃    

So where’s the money?  😕  

Seriously, we all talk about how great this profession is and how it’s so much fun that we would do it even if we weren’t getting paid.  And that’s a nice sentiment, but come on now.  We’ve got 💸 bills to pay and mouths to feed, and happy feelings and sandy chairs aren’t legal tender.  

Fortunately, we do get paid for our valuable services.  But sometimes commissions don't make for the kind of paychecks we would all like to be bringing home.  And relying on commissions can be a big ask, especially when times are as tough as they were throughout 2020.  Finding a source for immediate, recurring, independent revenue is a very real challenge for a lot of travel agents.  

There’s got to be a way to 📈 boost your revenue without working 20 extra hours a week, ruthlessly hunting down every possible lead and sale, or, heaven forbid, going to work for some corporation.  🏢 

And guess what?  There is a way!  More than one way, as a matter of fact.  

Following on from my decades in the travel industry, I’ve developed three revenue-boosting strategies for your travel business that you can implement to get the most out of the work you are already putting in.  

In my latest 📽️ video, “3 Revenue-Boosting Strategies For Your Travel Business,” I’ll tell you how to create more cash flow in your travel business.  You won’t want to miss these avenues for making money that you haven’t explored yet!  

Just because you add “travel agent” to your Facebook profile doesn’t mean you are going to stumble into a 🤑 lucrative jet-setting career selling travel packages.  You need to be able to plan and strategize how to get additional revenue from unlikely sources. If you can follow these revenue-boosting strategies and put in the work, your travel business can be everything you want it to be.

And if you’re ready to really boost your travel business revenue  in 2021, then now is the time to join the Careers on Vacation Mastermind!  It’s the ultimate tool for travel professionals and travel agency owners.
