When Doreen sent me the e-mail that she and her husband’s tour sales were up 25% in 2012, I got really excited.
Why did I get so excited? Because Doreen’s tour business had already grown 45% in 2011.
And I knew they had done this in spite of stiff competition, a down economy, did not have a big marketing budget and only hired their first office staff last year…Plus her 2013 bookings… were already way ahead of last year’s record pace.
So what was this worth to Doreen & Bob’s small independent tour business and bed and breakfast? Over $200,000 in increased revenues!
I’m super-proud of Doreen and Bob because… they have been slowly applying my advice. And now their sales and profits are way up. And they spend more time booking tours and less time “marketing and selling”.
And things are so good, they just got back from their own Hawaiian vacation. Something too few tourism operators do…
So that’s why I knew I had to interview Doreen and get her to share some of her best tourism business and marketing secrets with you today.
