You may be asking if I join what will happen next? That’s why we’ve put together the milestones below once you’ve decided to join as a Travel Consultant.
- Step 1: Book in a call with Paul Harrison, our Co-Founder
The call with Paul is your chance to ask any questions & discuss which franchise package might be best for you, based on your budget and goals. Once you’ve made the decision to join, you’ll receive an initial agreement form from Paul via email.
- Step 2: Document signed and deposit paid
Once the deposit is paid you’ll receive a welcome call from our training team within 24 hours (weekends may vary).
Juliet is the lady you’ll be speaking with, she’ll be there to explain the next steps and book in your initial training date. Please note that dates fill up fast.
- Step 3: Pre-training guidance
You’ll be encouraged to build an ‘everyone you know’ list. As well as set up your travel business, from an admin and legal side of things… essentially the boring but very necessary bits. This includes: Getting business insurance and registering for VAT.
Many franchisees arrive at the live-online training with enquiries ready to work on! Having enquiries to work on as soon as training is over can be a real confidence booster and will be something to get your teeth into straight away. 😀
Hear how Ben Casey, one of our franchisees, got enquiries before his training week even started here.
- Step 4: Live, online training
In this training, you’ll work towards getting certified as a personal travel consultant. You’ll need a laptop, an internet connection (and a smile), that’s it!
- Step 5: Your travel website goes live!
Seeing your name and face on a professional travel website is a real highlight, you can start to direct customers, friends and family to it. You can share it on social media too.
Your website will come with the latest company news, travel podcasts, inspiring blog articles, 12 reasons to book with you, and much more…
- Step 6: Marketing material
Although you don’t need any marketing material to get started, you have access in case you want it. This includes hoodies, laptop covers, business cards, merchandise, event banners, and much more.
- Step 7: You’ll be invited to join a private Facebook group
We’ll give you access to x2 Facebook groups where you’ll get daily updates, advice, inspiration, and be able to connect with a community of like-minded people who all started their travel business like you.
The first group will be run by Ben Rood your partnership manager. As your business grows and you reach new pin levels (based on a number of holiday sales) you’ll work with different partnership managers who’ll progress you even further.
- Step 8: Attend online briefings and ongoing training
You’ll be able to join regular company briefings and webinars, these cover a wide range of topics as the travel industry is fast-paced and ever-changing. These updates are key are you’ll need to be a step ahead of your customers, keeping them informed and positioning yourself as an authority in the market.
- Step 9: Start to grow your network & get attention online
Start sharing the travel podcast episodes on your website or holiday offers (which our marketing team creates for you). There will always be something for you to share each week to help get you noticed and bring in more customers…
- Whether it’s the latest travel podcast
- A new product launch
- A new booking initiative
- Or the latest company news in travel
