One of the biggest questions we get asked at The Travel Franchise is, how will I find customers? It’s a natural fear for everyone who joins. So, to help you see just how simple it can be, we have compiled our top 5 ways of finding customers (although when you join we give you over 100 different ideas).
- Friends and Family
- Business Networking
- Social Media e.g. Facebook
- Wedding Shows
- Partners in Travel
Each one of these 5 activities has the potential to generate all of the customers you need to be successful in this business. They are also the activities used by our top income earners within The Travel Franchise.
Don’t worry if you don’t know how you would use one of these five simple marketing ideas to make money, that’s what we teach you during your training with us.
Here are the top five ways to find customer in a little more detail:
Friends and Family
Think right now about how many of your friends, family or people you know go on holiday. That’s the best place to start your business. You already know enough people to keep you busy. It doesn’t matter if they live locally or far away, there are no territories in The Travel Franchise.
If you don’t know many people, business networking is a great way to build your contacts and find fantastic and loyal customers. Organisations such as BNI or 4Networking will be running events near you or your local chamber of trade. We teach lots of options and how to make this work when you attend training.
Facebook is now a massive part of our lives, as is LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter. During training, we cover a range of techniques to help you create a ‘social media strategy‘ to grow your business. This looks at the basics of how to get customers using Facebook, through to how to use social media to compliment other marketing activities.
With the average price of a UK wedding now over £32,000 it’s no wonder that one in six couples now gets married overseas. You can help couples and wedding parties plan their dream overseas weddings or arrange their perfect honeymoon. You can also offer our free honeymoon gift list service which is very popular. We teach you how to use Wedding Shows to generate a very profitable customer base.
Partners in Travel
Unique to The Travel Franchise, our Partners in Travel programme allows you to leverage the power of other peoples contacts or customer base to grow your business. It makes your business easier because you don’t have to go looking for customers, they come to you. We teach you how to find new Travel Partners. We manage the programme so all you have to do is help find the perfect holidays for the customers.
