Travel Agent and Tourism Marketing
Over recent years travel agencies have been exposed to a multitude of changes in the travel industry which include the introduction of low cost airlines, e-ticketing services, constant airline schedule changes and the rise of the internet which has given power to the average consumer to research and book their own travel.
But will the internet provide a point of contact in times of crisis? Do you receive personalised service from a travel? And how do consumers know if they really are getting the best deal?
By having a dedicated travel consultant or agency means that your customer needs are anticipated every step of the way. Whether it be your seat preference, your meal request or reward program numbers. But do like Webjet and Airbnb, it’s very difficult for consumers to understand the actual costs versus benefits between using a travel agent and booking online.
Bright Owl Marketing understand the need to position a travel agent effectively in the ever-changing market and has helped many Fully Branded, Associate and Affiliate networks of Helloworld, and also experienced travel consultants working for the TravelManagers group
We know that in order to be successful then a travel agent needs to have good product differentiation and strong positioning. When you focus on providing a clear point of difference and educating your clients, you’re taking steps to ensure strong brand equity and the promise you make to your customers.
Bright Owl Marketing will help you to stand out from the crowd by focus on the right niche market segments in order to promote your products and brand over and above your competitors. And by establishing a key point of difference as part of an effective brand and communication strategy will also help you connect in a way that turns the consumer benefit into a compelling call-to-action.
