NEST Offers Webinars to Build Sales

The Network of Entrepreneurs Selling Travel (NEST) has scheduled nine webinars for June in as it continues to help its preferred suppliers bond with its home-based agents. The webinars will help members cope with the current economy and focus agents’ attention on sales and marketing strategies.

The one-hour webinars are offered over a secure server, and home-based agents participate from their computers. Suppliers present their product features and benefits, and provide sales and marketing tactics that are designed to support the agents in cultivating current clients, finding new customers and boosting revenues.

“In a soft economy like the one we’re in now, it’s more important than ever for agents to stay motivated,” said Kathryn Mazza-Burney, president of NEST. “Participants on these calls brainstorm with their peers and our suppliers about strategies for bringing in new and repeat business. We applaud our preferred suppliers for proactively reaching out to the dynamic home-based channel that NEST represents.”

Virtual trainings scheduled for next month are: June 3 (GOGO Worldwide Vacations), June 10 (Celebrity/Azamara Cruises), June 11 (Access America), June 12 (Carnival Cruise Lines), June 17 (Thrifty/Dollar), June 18 (Trafalgar Tours), June 19 (Norwegian Cruise Line), June 24 (STAR Service Online), and June 26 (Collette Vacations).
