“my spiritual travel business has doubled…”
“Investing in mentorship and courses is essential in any business, and since doing Tim’s online course, my spiritual travel business has doubled and my website is waaaaaay better!”
Sharee James, Founder Ashima Journeys
“after a 45% “tour sales” increase last year, I expected to be happy…”
Tim, I was glad you used our testimonial. The truth is powerful and the truth is after a 45% increase last year, I expected to be happy with just maintaining that level of sales this season. We are already at a 20% increase over last year this time so… it’s better than expected!
I am absolutely certain that the improvements we have made on our website have helped with this growth. We do offer a great service and the word of mouth advertising has been great but, I never would have thought “word of mouth” or testimonials on the website would garner so much notice and have so much weight in a persons decision to call. I might have even been worried when my competitor called in a panic earlier this year because their booking were down by 50% but, we already had our calendar filling up!
Thank YOU so very much for your mentorship and don’t give up on what you do because you do it so well and there’s people like me who NEED your help. Feel free to use anything I say in a testimonial. I want others to know… these small steps to improvement DO yield big results if they stay the course, or in this case… purchase the Tourism Marketing Course!”
Doreen and Bob Toller, Alaskan Tour Guides & Tollers Timbers B&B

“I don’t know what I do without you!”

“Your book is certainly coming in useful.”
I was frustrated because I couldn’t get my brochure cover uploaded to the printer – it kept timing out. But then I read your book, and realized the cover needs serious changes. So it was a good thing I didn’t have it uploaded and being printed already! Now I’ve got another chance to fix it up based on some of your suggestions.”

“I admire how he does things and his enthusiasm. Thank you, Tim”
At present I’m working on a rather big tourism project. I serched all over the world for a professional tourism marketeer to work with me and was recommended Tourism Tim. He immediately accepted my invitation to cooperate. As a professional marketing and PR-advisor I thought I knew something about marketing, but that’s nothing compared to Tourism Tim’s knowledge of this industry. I admire how he does things and his enthusiasm. Thank you, Tim!
