We get this question more than any other. Building your database is a very important part of your Cruise Planners® business. At STAR University training, you’ll learn about the need for community involvement, our free direct mail program, free weekly email campaigns, and an entire day learning how to market and advertise your business. Your best source is to start with friends, family, and business contacts and ask them for their business and referrals.
As a Cruise Planners® Travel Advisor, you will be able to provide customers with personal service by planning their perfect vacation, so it starts with you and your contacts. Cruise Planners has many programs that help you with what is known as acquisition marketing. Between your free franchisee website as well as direct mail, social media, email newsletters and campaigns, print-on-demand postcards, and more, no one provides more resources to help you find customers than Cruise Planners!
From day 1 with Cruise Planners, you are able to use templates to share the news that you are a new franchise owner and now working as a travel professional with a customer-friendly mobile app, and access to the best tools in the industry. Also, many travel advisors find that sharing their own travel memories and vacations on social media help remind their potential clients that they are travel advisors who have a love for travel and drive engagement. Our Business Development team will work with you to customize your goals and building your customer database can be one of the first goals you set. Then, our lead nurturing email drip campaigns will help entice your database to close a sale.
There are many ways you can find clients - let's face it, everyone travels, you just need to get them to buy their travel from you.
