We align you with the travel agencies and brands who are seeking professional, polished content expertise to help power their marketing strategies.
The intermediary travel sales process can be a complex one – but we have innovated some pretty great ways to track and measure your contributions, so you can start building new revenue streams.

Training & Education
TIMA conducts several intensive webinars per month, following a set editorial calendar. You can register for everything you like through the end of the year if you want! Probably a good idea since attendance is capped and sessions will likely fill very quickly. We’ll also be doing several workshops created for you to follow along with and create something incredible during the session.
Our options look like this:
- TIMA Talk Bi-Monthly Webinar Series | These sessions cover a variety of industry hot topics. These sessions are not intended as sales pitches – rather discussions about current industry trends, defining new approaches, and sharing success and failures. They’re informative and inspirational in nature.
- TIMA Monthly Marketing Workshop Series | These workshops are conducted live and you’ll watch and follow along onscreen as we show you exactly how to use certain marketing tools. The goal is to have you walk away from the session having created something impressive, from a landing page to a brochure or even a webinar of your own.
- TIMA Supplier Seminar Series | These sponsored sessions are led by the industry’s top suppliers. Topics, content, and messages are carefully screened by TIMA to avoid commercials. These are opportunities to take a deep dive into the marketing resources a supplier is offering to help you create more compelling sales content. They’re quite unique!
In addition to our educational webinars and trainings, you’ll have access to lots of premium members-only content from travel industry glossaries and information on all of the industry’s events to a seasonal sales and marketing calendar you can use to carefully plan your marketing efforts around peak sales seasons. You’ll love it!
Support & Service
Your membership comes with an initial brand consultation to talk about your marketing goals and ensure that you’ve got a plan that will take your agency exactly where you want it to go. You can choose Skype, Email, Telephone, or even an in-person consult, depending on where you are located.
Once you’ve got your plan underway, we’ll be here to ensure you’re able to adapt, adjust, and see results. We’re always a chat or an email away and are here to help you grow.
If you’re ready, we also have in-house marketing and design service providers who can design anything you need, from a custom logo to a fully functional website designed to help you monetize and actually sell the travel you talk about.
