About TIMA

this is how we decided to make the jump and start this up!

We believe so strongly in the power of good marketing, that we’re dedicating our careers to helping travel businesses everywhere gain access to the education, tools, and guidance they need to take the next step in their businesses. Whether you’re just starting out or stepping out on your own for the first time after a long career making money for someone else – we are here to help you every step of the way. 

Our Startup Story

TIMA began as a crazy idea, like most things do. We had always toyed with the idea of starting a marketing association, combined with a marketing agency, while still working at our day jobs. We loved our jobs, but working in the intersection of travel sellers, travel suppliers, technology, and marketing exposed us to some serious market needs that were only getting louder. We couldn’t stop thinking about the different ways we could make marketing a lot easier for everyone trying to grow and change in what can be a very confusing digital marketing world.

So, one day, it just felt like the right time to make that terrifying leap into entrepreneur town. Both of us (Kulin and Maggie) have families. Kids to put through orthodontics, school, and everything else that comes with being a working mom. It’s never easy – but nothing worthwhile is. Which is one of the many reasons we’re so proud to be a woman-owned business. So we hope you join us on our journey to make travel business owners’ lives just a little easier and a lot more fun!

 

Our Vision for TIMA

We are really looking to accomplish three very simple things with TIMA. And here they are:

Provide meaningful education, resources, and support to anyone within the travel industry space who is frustrated by not having the marketing know-how, budget, or manpower to make their vision a reality. And make it happen for them.

Harness the powerful connection between travel sellers, travel content creators, and travel brands to provide the public with a better experience when it comes to planning travel. Each bring a unique set of skills to the table that can make travel better for everyone.

Set the industry standard for best practices in travel marketing by capturing new data, sharing new insights, and leveling the playing field for anyone who wants their brand to have an impact and be competitive in our industry. 

We are fully prepared to mess up in front of everyone, make mistakes that we hope others can and will learn from, and test out things that no one else will. So if you’re expecting perfection, you’re not going to get it. But you will get progress.
