FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - November 17, 2016) - Avoya Travel®, one of the world's most innovative marketing and travel technology companies, has announced its highly successful New-To-Travel program for entrepreneurs that want to own and operate an independent travel agency in the Avoya Network. Now, even without previous experience selling travel, entrepreneurs with a passion for travel and a desire to be their own boss can have the opportunity through Avoya's proven program to live a lifestyle of success as an Independent Agency in the Avoya Network.
Already known as the leading travel host network with the most professional and successful Independent Agency members, it was critical that Avoya's New-To-Travel program further the company's long-standing reputation for Integrity and Professionalism™, while at the same time, help people who love travel start their own business and provide amazing service to their customers.
Working closely with online travel schools and universities Avoya has developed a very successful scholarship program for its New-To-Travel affiliation option and paired it with the award-winning professional education offered by Avoya University™. The successful combination has resulted in New-To-Travel entrepreneurs joining the Avoya Network in record numbers and reaching top sales through the optional Avoya patented Live Leads™ program -- new clients offered exclusively electronically and by telephone.
Avoya recently launched its new B2B brand marketing campaign -- Let's Reimagine Vacation Planning Together™ -- on the company's new www.JoinAvoya.com to promote the growing recognition by consumers and suppliers that professional travel agents supported by networks like Avoya are an increasingly valuable and necessary component to planning and booking vacations and cruises.
With support from the new campaign, interest and leads from potential Independent Agencies are up almost four times since the launch of the New-To-Travel program, and more new-to-travel and experienced agents are finding the opportunities to own and operate their own travel agency than ever before.
"Avoya Travel's New-To-Travel program for entrepreneurs has had a huge and positive impact on the Network's growth and its ability to provide world-class service to more customers than ever before," said Brad Anderson, President of Avoya Travel. "We're proud to provide the patented technology, marketing, education, Live Leads, and support that enable Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network to plan and book extraordinary vacations and cruises to reach their goals of living lifestyles of success."
Many Independent Agencies in this new Avoya program are quickly reaching sales levels that previously would have taken years of experience to attain.
After having very successful careers in insurance and financial planning, Jack Duncan's Sail & Sign Vacations, LLC became an Independent Agency in the Avoya Network. Duncan explains, "With the support of Avoya's scholarship program I graduated from an online travel school and soon after joined the Avoya Network and entered the optional Avoya University. With my drive and sales strength, and Avoya's Live Leads program, I was able to produce over $100,000 within my first month. I'm determined to be a top producer, and now thanks to the support of Avoya Travel my Independent Agency is on track to hit $1 million within my first eight months."
Another success story, Ann Kent, owner of Sea Ya Travel Inc. explains, "My Independent Agency sold over $400,000 in my first three months with the Avoya Network. I used to sell real estate, but I always dreamed of owning my own successful travel company. This January alone I booked more than $300,000, and sold over $1.7 million in my first year in travel! With Avoya Travel's support, technology, and their amazing Live Leads program my dreams have been realized."
Rachel Mooney spent seven years in insurance before opening her travel agency with the Avoya Network in 2016. "I am passionate about travel and providing value to customers, so when I was ready for a new and fun challenge I found Avoya Travel. Their desire for my business to grow is refreshing, and they provide world class learning opportunities for me. In just six months I've sold $700,000, and the credit goes to my affiliation with Avoya Travel," said Mooney, owner of Changing Your Latitude Travel, LLC.
