GIFTE’s New Digital Marketing Workshops Position Agents for Success Online
The Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs (GIFTE) is excited to offer new digital marketing workshops exclusively for GIFTE members. The workshops will demystify cutting-edge online marketing techniques for travel professionals so that they can flourish in the online travel space.
“To be successful in today’s travel marketplace, you have to have an online visibility strategy,” said GIFTE CEO Meredith Hill. “I’ve always taught GIFTE members that experts make more money—now, we’re offering them even more tools to position themselves as experts online. Establishing yourself as a travel expert online is critical for getting travel sales today.”
Leading the workshops will be GIFTE’s new Online Marketing Expert, Carmen Perez. Since starting her travel business over four years ago, Perez has successfully launched her own lifestyle digital magazine, Effortless Living Online. “We’re thrilled that we’re able to tap into Carmen’s deep well of online marketing knowledge. Her digital marketing workshops will build off of the marketing strategies that GIFTE teaches in our signature product, the ‘Make Money Selling Travel Blueprint,’—and since Carmen has been through the Blueprint herself, I’m confident that she’ll further the strategies presented there in incredibly effective ways,” said Hill.
The workshops will focus on how to execute online strategies through content marketing, list building, and increasing engagement through social media and beyond. “I’m so excited to teach travel professionals how to use social media platforms to position their content, so that they can build and engage a strong following of clients who want and value their services,” said Perez. “And I’m proud to partner with GIFTE because we share a strong moral and ethical compass to be of service to the travel industry as a whole. My greater mission is to help the travel entrepreneur create a business that his or her life loves, not the other way around.”
