Services that will help your travel business include:
CREATE INCREDIBLE QUIZZES TO BUILD YOUR EMAIL LIST
If creating an email list of your ideal clients is your priority, look no further. Quizzes are the perfect list building tool as they are engaging and fun for your audience and also full of intel for you.
If you are a member of Travel Marketing Revolution, Module 2 will provide you with a wonderful worksheet that you can use as a baseline to create your quiz.
You can either create it yourself with little tech skills or pass it onto our Virtual Assistant partner, Task Birdie (mentioned below).
LEGAL MADE SIMPLE
You can make easy and fast legal documents by simply selecting the state that your business is registered in (the US only) and then answering a series of questions.
There are literally hundreds of contracts for your personal and business use including but not limited to:
Independent Contractor (IC) Agreement
Release of Liability
Website Terms & Conditions
AN EFFICIENT & EFFECTIVE TOOL TO BUILD AND NURTURE YOUR EMAIL LIST
With email list building being the #1 marketing priority for travel agents around the world, it is essential to have technology that leads you to your goals without leaving you confused and frustrated.
ConvertKit is a powerful email service provider that provides automation capabilities without the high price tag.
From creating evergreen sequences, tagging and segmenting, sending out broadcasts, and a variety of brand-friendly opt-in templates, there simply isn't any better.
Delivery rates to your audience inboxes are high, ensuring maximum open-rates for well written and strategic emails.
MAKE A MOCKUP IN SECONDS!
It's the largest library of mockups on the internet.

No more DIY looking graphics.
Here are a few things you can do in your travel business with mockups:
Graphics for your lead magnets

EVERY LEGAL CONTRACT YOU COULD EVER NEED FOR YOUR BUSINESS AND CUSTOMIZED TO THE LAW IN YOUR STATE
What time works for you?
I'm busy, Tuesday.
How about Wednesday?
I can do between 10am - 11am and 3:15pm and 4:00pm.
Which time zone?
NEVER do the appointment scheduling dance again! Setup an availability calendar where your clients, suppliers, and vendors can make appointments based around both of your availabilities. You can even schedule reminder emails to reduce missed meetings. Plus you can embed the calendar right there on your website allowing you to wake up to new meetings!
FOR QUICK AND SIMPLE DESIGN JOBS
While there is definitely a time and place to hire a design agency (like us) to create big assets like websites, business cards, logos, and pull-up banners, there are jobs here and there that you can do yourself using Canva's templates:
Facebook covers to match your business focus
Social media stories icons
Social media text posts
A PODCAST HOSTING PLATFORM
Ready to get your message out there? Consider hosting your podcast with Libsyn.

A SMART WAY TO LOVE ON YOUR CLIENTS!

It's free to set up and will really build that Know, Like and Trust factor quickly.
