Picking a Niche as a Travel Agent? Watch This First!

One of the great things about the travel business is that there are nearly infinite choices of areas to specialize in.  Passionate about Paris?  Expert in 🐪 Egypt?  Deep into Disney?  Crazy about 🚢 cruises?  Then there’s a place for you in the travel business.  

When you pick an area of travel to specialize in, that’s called your niche.  And picking a niche as a travel agent can be very important to the success of your business.  Because, while there’s nothing stopping you from covering all the bases and booking all manner of travel, you may find that it’s hard for your business to gain a foothold that way.  

Think about it this way:  have you ever been to a travel agent and said, “I’d like to take a trip, but I don’t have anywhere in particular in mind.”   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  

No, the vast majority of travellers know exactly where they want to go, and they want to find a travel agent with the expertise to make their trip to that place the best it can possibly be.  

So, how do you go about picking a niche as a travel agent, especially if you’re not (yet) a world class expert in that area of travel?  Before you hang up a shingle that says, “Ask Me About Alaska,” watch this first!  

It’s my new 📽️ video, “Picking a Niche as a Travel Agent? Watch This First!” and it’s loaded with tips and advice on the hows and whys of picking a niche for your travel business.  Check it out!  

I hope you’ll take to heart the insights from the video as you make a place for yourself as a travel agent.  There’s room for you in the travel business.  If you can turn your passion into expertise, it won’t be long before the clients are beating down your door to work with you.
