388 - How to Market With Video

Podcast Number 388
SHOW NOTES
Give your clients a taste of what they will experience on their next vacation with videos. There is hardly a better sales tool than a video with you, the travel agent, at a destination and talking about all the interesting things to do at that destination. A video such as this gives you instant credibility showing your clients that you have been there and experienced the things they want to experience. The only thing you need to produce a video is a smart phone, a Facebook account and/or a YouTube account.

Catherine Heeg from Customized Management Solutions joins our show to give you some insight on how easy it is to market your travel business with video. So listen in and learn how to create and promote your videos.

385 - The Northern Lights on Silk

Podcast Number 385
SHOW NOTES
 Travel agents wish to give their clients unforgettable memories and experiences they share with family and friends. Lorene had the opportunity to try this out during her trip to Alaska with the NACTA conference and she just loved it so we thought we would bring it to you. The experience we share with you in this show is something your clients will rave about. What we are talking about is a relaxing break from what often is a full schedule of sightseeing. Your clients will gather with a small group at a log cabin that offers a spectacular view where they will enjoy some fine food while they produce a piece of art they take home with them. This is the Alaska Paint a Scarf experience. Your clients are guided by expert scarf painters as they use their own imagination to create beautiful scenes on pieces of silk. Your clients leave with a beautiful memento to show family and friends and years down the road when the client looks at the scarf the memories of a wonderful trip will transport them to the log cabin with the spectacular view.
