safaris are on the bucket list of most people

While we know a safari is on the bucket list of most people, it is also true that traveling to Africa alone can be daunting for many.

Over the years, our team at Africa Answers has partnered with savvy agents to create small group itineraries that have been wildly successful... and extremely lucrative for the agent.

And the best thing is, you don't need 30 people to make a group; in Africa the small group is the way to go!

Join your Africa Answers Coach Jeff Adam, as he as he shares things you should consider when putting together a small group and shows how to plan a memorable itinerary that your clients will remember forever.

5 Ways to Turn Lookers into Bookers

5 Ways to Turn Lookers into Bookers

by Catherine Heeg

Keeping in touch with your clients is key to transforming them from lookers to bookers. Here are some cool

ideas to stay top of mind using social marketing.

 

Skype now offers an easier way to connect.  With their new plug-in you can add a Skype call link into an email, social post or even a calendar invite.  Clients will simply click the link and the call automatically puts them in touch with you. The caller does NOT need a Skype account.

Your Facebook Inbox now gives you the chance to create an appointment with your connections.

E-Blast providers offer a variety of social and traditional marketing services.  Do you know all the options with your own provider?

Do your e-blasts get the open rate and CTR you’d like?  Writing stronger email subject lines and blog titles just got easier with Headline Analyzer.  Simply type in your text and the analyzer provides a relevance score.  It’s easier to drive traffic, increase shares and open rates.

Graphics grab attention on your social posts!  Lacking creative inspiration? Here’s some free graphics that are yours to grab.  Go ahead and download them now.

We’re all looking for faster, better, stronger ways to grow our businesses and expect to be able to carry all the tools in our pocket.  Forget the glue and scissors and transform your marketing efforts with a few clicks, a bit of creativity and a splash of copywriting.

Don’t miss these other tips to captivate your social fans.

Too busy to market? Check out these social marketing tactics you can do while the coffee is brewing.
