Once you’ve exceeded $500,000 to $750,000 in annual gross sales, you’ll notice that some things stay the same in your business – but, other things begin to change.
You may reach the limit of how many clients you can handle yourself day to day. You’ll juggle an ever-growing list of “to dos” for those clients. You may be on the verge of hiring help (an office part-timer or a virtual assistant). You’ll take a hard look at your commission levels (especially with preferred suppliers) and the pros and cons of your current consortium or host agency. You’ll decide if it’s time to specialize exclusively in romance travel or continue selling everything to everybody.
That’s why DWHSA is launching its very first “special interest group” (SIG) – set up specifically for high-volume travel advisors and agency owners like you!
If you produce at least $1,000,000 (USD or CAD) in annual sales, you’ll qualify for this SIG – whether you close those sales totally on your own as an individual agent or you’re the owner or primary manager of an agency that exceeds that level.
We did a “test” for this SIG in recent months with a group of 25 volunteering members – and, now, we’re ready to roll this out to all qualifying DWHSA members. (There is NO charge to be a part of the group.)
In the beginning, the SIG will operate via monthly networking calls, giving you access to other high-producing members like you to talk about issues you’re facing and ask questions for advice from your fellow SIG members.
If you sell more than $1,000,000 in travel annually yourself, or if you’re the owner or primary manager of an agency that exceeds this sales level, please complete the form below to apply for the SIG. Please contact us if you have questions (615.730.9977 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks for your help!
