Growing Your Honeymoon Sales!

Want to Grow Your Honeymoon Sales!

Want to turn your first-time bookers into lifelong clients who repeat with you and refer you to everyone they know?

Check out our "Building Lifelong Relationships With Your Romance Travel Clients" webinar video! Go to this page to watch the video and download a PDF copy of the slides - you'll get some great ideas for growing your business in 2018 and beyond!

On Thurs., March 22 (1 pm ET/10 am PT), you're welcome to join us for a great webinar on "Building Your Honeymoon Sales!"

We'll share best practices from DWHSA's 900+ members on identifying honeymoon couples, promoting yourself as a honeymoon expert, and closing more HM bookings for 2018 and beyond.

We'll actually show real-world examples shared by DWHSA members on how to do this! There's NO charge for non-members. Click here to register (or, later, go to our "open webinars" page for the video and handout links).

We have space left at the Romance Travel University, DWHSA's annual conference in May! Take a look at our speaker lineup.

We're very proud that almost every speaker at this event is a successful romance travel specialist - not suppliers giving "commercials" about their resorts and packages, but real-live agents who'll share what really works for them. (We're even adding 4 more agent speakers to the lineup later this week.) Here's a link to the full schedule. The discounted registration rate is USD$199, and you can lock in lower room rates at the host hotel if you book by April 8!

On Mon., April 9, we're launching a new training series that'll be open to ALL U.S. and Canadian agents (not just DWHSA members). And, the best part? There's no charge!

We hear every week from agents eager to jump into romance travel - but, they're not sure where to start! So, we've created a new program called "So, You Want to Sell Romance Travel? The DWHSA Seven-Step Plan."

Each week starting April 9, we'll post a new video (with handouts) that you can watch at your convenience - no need to show up at a certain webinar date and time. And, we'll have a temporary Facebook group just for agents taking part in this series, so you can post questions you really want to ask about getting into the romance travel niche. Again, there's NO charge for this class!

We'll have a sign-up link soon (but, if you can't wait, you're welcome to contact us at to let us know you want to participate).

Thanks - and, have a great week! Please reach out to us if you have questions ( or 615.730.9977) ...

P.S. This summer, many DWHSA members will take the Gay Wedding Institute's certification course as a group - and, you're welcome to join us at a big discount!

Plus, we're also planning a webinar series with three brand-new classes taught by Alan Berg, the world's most respected wedding/romance business trainer. Watch your email for more details!

CBS News, Travel Agents are Thriving

hbta 10A recent profile by CBS News, assisted by the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA), showcases the evolution of agents and how many are thriving despite increased competition in the Internet age.

While more and more agents are opting to trade in their office for the living room sofa—a recent ASTA study found roughly half of agents are home-based—many are maximizing on their knowledge and one-upping online travel agencies by opting to specialize.

By creating a niche, agents can put their passion and experience to work and improve their chances of reaching those travelers in search of a specific experience. While it may not be for everyone, it's certainly more likely to resonate.

As the CBS News profile points out, most travelers planning on their own view up to nine different websites before booking. No matter the niche, agents can save clients cash, internet overload plus craft a trip that checks all of their boxes.
