TL Network says it it continues to experience growth and success with award-winning tools for travel agency members.
"Strides in technology, training and marketing programs are providing strong impetus for advancement during very challenging times," the company said in a release this week.
The award-winning lead generation tool Agent Profiler enables consumers to find the perfect travel advisor for their needs by selecting from a full range of travel specialties, destinations and other search options.
More than 635 TL Network Canada affiliate members are currently displaying an advisor profile, with more members being added weekly.
The capabilities of this exclusive technology allow advisors to create blog posts and multiple profiles, based on their areas of specialties, add images to a photo gallery and invite clients to add ratings and reviews of their services.
“I am extremely proud of the energy, drive and accomplishments of our team over the past year in providing support to our travel advisors on the programs and technology TL Network provides,” said Christine James, vice-president Canada, TL Network. “Even during the pandemic, we continued to drive more consumer leads to our members, along with providing the tools and technology they need to make their jobs easier. We look forward to even bigger and better things to come in the last half of 2021.”
TL Network’s Agent Profiler experienced growth in leads channeled to participating travel advisors, resulting in tremendous success for advisors who have been taking advantage of the enhanced features built into the online program.
By highlighting specialties and certifications, along with consumer ratings and reviews, advisors are receiving significantly more success when they make use of the marketing tools.
Since January 2020, Agent Profiler has delivered over 5,550 leads to advisors who have published profiles on www.CanadianTravelAgents.ca.
TL Network Canada is offering its members free upgrades to Agent Profiler Plus through December 31, 2021, which enables advisors to publish multiple profiles that are proven to deliver five times more leads.
Kyle Oram, CEO of KVI Travel in Victoria, BC is very proud of one of his agents, Kim Turcot Leeming, who took the time to put together a detailed profile as a French Polynesia specialist on Agent Profiler.
This listing resulted in a lead that developed into a $45,000 Kensington Tours Polynesia booking.
Oram is now encouraging all his agents to highlight their specialties and get their profiles listed.
“Travellers are far more interested in connecting with a travel expert based on that agent’s knowledge and experience with a particular destination,” said Oram. “It’s a win-win for the entire KVI team.”
Lola Vassilliadis, owner/manager of Cruise Holidays in Oakville and Lawrence Park stated that she is a huge fan of Agent Profiler.
“One of our agents received a lead for a 117-day Cunard World Cruise for 2022. She recently closed the lead and generated a booking worth just under $220,000. Another agent received a high-quality lead for a 100-guest destination wedding. This would never have happened without the ease of Agent Profiler’s proprietary tool which helps guide consumers who seek a personal connection with the most trusted, qualified travel advisors,” said Vassilliadis.
