We Need Good Local Travel Agents!
There is good news for travel agents according to the Los Angeles Times. While the large online travel websites like Orbitz and Travelocity continue to dominate with about 70% of the travel booking business in the United States, local "brick and mortar" travel agencies are reporting booming business.
As Americans take advantage of a strengthening economy, they seek more intricate and exotic vacations which require the expertise of seasoned travel agents.
Travel agents say revenues, bookings and the total number of clients are up in the first half of 2014 compared with the same period last year, according to a survey by the American Society of Travel Agents, which represents nearly 6,000 travel agents across the country. Why the rise? As Americans take advantage of a strengthening economy, they seek more intricate and exotic vacations. Planning these travel experiences requires a level of experience and expertise best provided by seasoned travel agents. My travel agency website design helps travel professionals to market their experience and skills to eager travel consumers online.
Destination weddings & honeymoons are vital niche travel markets best handled by an experienced local travel agent. Also, exotic travel destinations and ecotourism often require the seasoned guidance of travel agents for the best advice and planning.
Savvy Travel Marketing Puts Women First
According to Ad Age, forty-three percent of business travelers are women, and women make more than 75% of all travel decisions (for their families, their businesses and themselves). A truly effective travel website touches emotions and stirs a sense of wanderlust and romance. You need to stir the emotions of more female consumers to generate new business! They are your biggest market and need to be wooed by your website design! This is a something commonly overlooked in online travel marketing. We put women consumers first in our travel website design.
