Most established travel agencies that are pressed for time have to choose between marketing and selling. This is a "no-brainer"; selling tends to take precedent as this translate to immediate revenue. In other words real money.
Newsflash selling is short-term; marketing is long-term. Consistent Marketing is what keeps the pipeline with a steady stream of customers to sell to. Little or no marketing will eventually lead to little or no selling in the long-term.
