Travel Edge launches social media challenge for agents

Travel Edge Network has launched a social media campaign and contest to recruit new advisors and showcase the many benefits of a career as a travel professional.

The Big Ticket will award travel advisors with the opportunity to jumpstart their career in travel, starting with a fully hosted professional development trip. Winners will also act as brand ambassadors, demonstrating the value of being a member of a program designed for new-to-business advisors and more tenured travel professionals.

Venture is an entry-level program aimed at attracting the newest travel advisors who are looking to join a community of elite travel professionals.

Venture+ offers a more robust training program that is supported by innovative tools. Mentoring opportunities and enhanced training courses in sales, customer service, marketing, and specialist certifications are also available.

Exciting prizes

The prizes include the opportunity to participate on one of Travel Edge Network’s Knowledge Trips – hosted trips for travel advisors to provide firsthand experience about the network’s partners and trending and emerging destinations.

Most importantly, all participants will be offered the chance to join Travel Edge Network and gain access to the training, technology, resources, and mentorship needed to launch or elevate their career in travel.

“There is no better time than now to consider a career as a travel advisor,” said Nadiya Makarenko, senior vice-president of Travel Edge Network.  “Through this campaign, we want to both identify and inspire those who are passionate about travel to consider a career path as an independent advisor and to provide them with the tools, resources and training to get started and be successful in a career that offers unlimited growth potential, independence and flexibility to accommodate varied lifestyles.”

How to enter

To enter, participants need to upload a 60-second video sharing a travel memory and reasons why they would want to be a Travel Edge advisor.

This contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec). Entries are limited to one per person and must be submitted by Jan. 26, 2024. Two winners will be announced in early February.
