May – What Should You Be Doing This Month?

May is a great time to send an email out to your customers regarding holiday travel.  Fares around the holidays tend to go down at this time of year and they don’t yet have blackout dates so ideal times can be booked.  Ask your customers if they would like you to watch fares for them for their holiday destinations and then take the opportunity to hold hotel space, AirBnb’s, book a car, etc.

This is typically a slower time of the year for both leisure and corporate sales and that gives you time to focus on your social marketing plan for the rest of the year.  There are many technologies (like HootSuite) that allow you to create and schedule social media posts in one session. Use this time to create your social messaging (use some of the TIMA Social Media bundles!) and boost your social presence for a month or until the end of the year!

Trend updates – do you know what current travelers are looking for? What are the most popular destinations? Go do some research to learn about a new location or brand. Try and incorporate it into your Fall marketing plans. Consider reaching out to a new supplier and coordinating to do an evening event featuring a sailing or tour date with that destination in mind.

Let’s talk e-newsletters – do you have one?  One of the best ways to communicate with your customer, keep your brand front of mind, and inspire them to travel more, is through e-newsletters. Be sure to have the right combination of information, inspiration, and initiation. Tell them about a new place, give them why they should go, and then provide an offer to inspire them call you.

It’s Time To Start Your 2021 Budget!

Yes, we know it seems a million miles away – but now is the time to start thinking about, and documenting your marketing campaign ideas, and reaching out to suppliers to get their financial support. Keep in mind, most suppliers will be closing their budgets for next year in the next 60-90 days, which doesn’t leave a a lot of time to finalize your plans and get them in front of the brands you’re seeking support from. Here are some ideas and resources to get you started!

How About a Guide?

We made you this handy-dandy budget worksheet, with actual working formulas to help you estimate your marketing budget for the year. Just click the image to download it.

Know Your Numbers

Do you have a plan to reach out to everyone who participated in a group last year? How do you acknowledge existing customers? Ask a lot of questions so you can make them aware of everything you’re working on!

Contact Suppliers

Ask your current clients and prospects where they want to go – give them several options you know you can deliver. Questions like, are you interested in cruises? International travel? Are you celebrating an event soon? You’ll have ready-made demand!

Practice Your Ask

What major events are going on this year? Who got married? Who celebrated a birthday? Whose kids are graduating? Are there any big festivals, concerts, or hotel/resort grand openings worthy of shaping a group around? New cruise ships?

Caribbean Honeymoons

Love is in the air!

Your client’s honeymoon should be perfect! Booking a honeymoon in the Caribbean makes that possible.

The Caribbean offers everything from adventure and excitement to romance, luxury and relaxation.

Luxury River Cruising

Drift away on your next getaway!

River Cruises are less crowded, more intimate, and you get the opportunity to see things that ocean cruises can’t access! Typically, a river cruise ship only holds about 200 passengers making the experience much more unique and personalized.

Western Caribbean

The Western Caribbean is made up of Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Costa Maya, Cozumel, Belize and Honduras. The Western Caribbean is an easy getaway from the majority of major airports, and the air fares tend to be reasonable. This makes the area an easy spot for quick trips, group travel, destination weddings, and cruising.
