Who would have ever guessed that Disney destinations worldwide would have their doors closed for weeks and months on end? Not this girl, I'll tell you that. I'm devastated. My entire business surrounds and was built on my love for Disney. But just because I'm down, I am most definitely not out.
If you aren't familiar with me, the largest focus of my business centers on agent education. From mentoring those who wish to enter the field of professional Disney travel planning inside the Agent Prep Program to teaching business development and marketing techniques while providing done-for-you social content monthly inside the Plussing It Membership site, coaching is my passion.
While this covid-19 pandemic is a really hard pill to swallow for travel agents, it does not have to mean the end of our small businesses. Now is NOT the time to throw in the towel. In fact, now, more than ever before is when agents need to show up for their social audience and guests to keep the excitement and magic alive!
The Walt Disney Travel Company is providing some fun social content to hold everyone over, but it's not enough to keep your guests interested in YOU. In order to ensure your audience stays engaged, you have to work for it.
I put together this FREE pdf download: Six Ways to Grow Your Disney Travel Business Through Covid-19 Closures for anyone struggling on how to navigate Disney travel marketing, growth and sales during this uncertain time. It pulls from lessons I teach inside my programs and serves as an overview of some tried and true methods of audience and sales growth that I personally use.
Best of luck to you in your business and I hope this helps even just a little bit in motivating you to keep going!
