Becoming a TripAtlas PRO via TripAtlas.com affords travel professionals the ability to market themselves online by enhancing their company's profile through an " Online Storefront" on TripAtlas.com, the company says. Travel professionals can sign up for a free trial at www.TripAtlasPro.com, which allows them to respond to up to five consumer travel leads.
These interactive "Online Storefronts" are equipped with a variety of components including the ability to directly embed a company's website within the page, 10 descriptive keyword tags, a detailed overview of the company, contact information, photos, featured travel packages, staff bios, as well as the opportunity to promote themselves on the "featured company" section of the website which is visible on most of the 90 million pages within TripAtlas.com.
"Online Storefronts have received outstanding reviews from our agents and agencies," said Steven Kaufman, president and co-developer of TripAtlas.com. "And with our website's 60 percent increase in consumer travel leads since summer, there is no better time to start marketing your business by becoming a TripAtlas PRO."
Once agents have seen the proven value, they can continue to use TripAtlas PRO without further commitment on a pay-per-lead basis (20 consumer leads for $19.90; 50 leads for $44.90), or they can purchase a TripAtlas PRO Enhanced Membership for only $35 per month or $395 per year (a $25 savings over month by month fee), according to TripAtlas.
The membership fee includes access to 150 consumer travel leads per year (additional leads available for less than $0.99 each), the ability to post an unlimited number of travel packages online, an enhanced Online Storefront page, access to travel trends, customer relationship management and more, TripAtlas says.
Unlike other travel sites, TripAtlas.com does not take a commission or interfere with the business between consumers and agents. Online advertising on the site is also available with rate plans available upon request.
