There are several key points to consider when choosing a travel franchise.
This is the “Key” to the success of your Online Travel Business. Without being visible on Page One of Google and without a structured Social Media campaign your business will struggle.
Make sure that your franchisor has the skills and resources to ensure that your customers can find you.
Beware of being offered freebies like a “Free LapTops” or luxury weekend conferences. Nothing is ever free. You are paying for it in your fee.
Money is better spent on support, training and marketing.
Having a “stand-alone” website with it’s own unique URL is critical for Social Media marketing and search engine optimisation.
You MUST avoid having a website that is just part of a much larger, communal website with a URL extension.
Your clients must be able to enjoy the same experience as they would with any of the major online holiday companies. Having the best technology for search and booking travel is essential.
A fast, responsive system that draws “live” data from the widest range of travel providers along with images and descriptions with a smooth, simple to follow booking system is fundamental.
As with any new business you will require on-going business mentoring, regular training workshops and telephone and Skype support as all as a comprehensive induction training course.
Your travel franchise should have a track record of product and service development to guarantee that your business will keep pace with the fast moving technology in the travel business.
Without continual innovation and investment your business will quickly fall behind.
