Providing even more tactical advice to its travel agency members on how to stabilize and build their business during tough economic times, Results! Travel has announced a series of webinars. The webinars— with online elements as well as live speakers— will focus on key elements of the Results! Travel 10-Point Business Plan. The plan was previously unveiled to members at their national meeting in October. Topics will include employee compensation, effective self-promotion in the media, and additional ways to boost the bottom line by supporting key supplier partners.
“Each of the topics chosen for these Webinars directly relates to the 10 ‘business preparedness’ points we have been emphasizing to our members over the past month,” said John Risner, general manager of Results! Travel. "Since our message resonated well with members during our National Meeting last month, our Webinar series will serve as an effective way for our staff and outside speakers to continue driving home important key individual points from the plan.”
The current Webinar schedule is as follows:
November 11: Employee Productivity, Compensation & Expectations
Renowned travel industry consultant Dr. Robert Joselyn will present a 90-minute web-based seminar on this highly requested topic, further encouraging members to actively review their business model.
November 12: How Public Relations Can Help Build Your Business
This 45-minute webinar— presented by the Results! Travel Public Relations Department— will take an in-depth look at the PR tools available for Results! members and how to use them, as well as provide tips on working with the media. This learning experience directly relates to the marketing portion of the 10-Point Business Preparedness Plan.
November 19: Making More Money from Your Cruise Sales
This webinar emphasizes the importance of utilizing key supplier partners to promote relationships and profitability. Participants will learn how to take advantage of an already-existing Results!
