TPI is continuing its efforts to provide business support for members with the launch of its Navigating Out of a Crisis e-Book that offers practical suggestions and steps for advisors to follow.
With the immediate crisis of dealing with an onslaught of cancellations and working tirelessly to bring clients home now cooled, advisors should now use this time to better their business and put strategies in place to ensure they stay relevant. In fact, TPI’s CEO, Zeina Gedeon advises that: “Selling travel today is very different than it was pre-pandemic, and as we move out of the pause, it will continue to be different. TPI is confident that the Travel Advisors role will be more critical to the travelling public than ever before.”
Gedeon continues: “We know that when restrictions start to lift, the floodgates will open and now is the time for you to start planning for the comeback. Our guide is designed with Travel Advisors in mind, outlining ways that you can put plans in place now to help you build back stronger than ever by following three simple activities.”
Those activities include:
- Connecting with your clients to stay top of mind
- Knowing your value and charging for your time
- Gaining Clarity and Focus for your business
Said Gedeon: “As a company, we too are following this framework; TPI has continued to connect with our network with weekly calls, regional meetings and training. Our Virtual Consumer Event series has been well received by our Advisors and their clients, we are seeing record-breaking registration numbers and seeing bookings as a direct result, and of course, our Re•Ignite Sessions with Sandra McLemore are a fantastic free resource we have provided exclusively to our Advisors to enhance their knowledge on ways to connect with their clients and reignite their business.”
TPI’s CEO explained that: “Over the last 10 months, we have taken the time to upgrade, enhance and update our back office, database, and training programs. All the changes we have made are to ensure when travel rebounds, our advisors are well equipped with the tools to be successful and optimize the opportunities ahead.”
And Gedeon concludes: “TPI has seen a positive increase in our recovery trends, starting in November and peaking in December, with levels slowly returning to December and significant growth in 2022 booking vs 2019”
