Stop reading this and setup a slack team for your agency right now. Command every agent to install it on their desktop and phone. It’s the gateway to keep everyone in the loop and instantly send messages to the whole team or to an individual agent.
Install a little piece of code on your site, and now you can easily chat with visitors to your website through Slack.
Use Portent’s idea generator for titles to help you make up better titles for blogs, testimonials, products and other content.
A good tool to store links about destinations. Whenever you have a new customer, you can simply lookup links and send them a quick email that will just make you look good. A better option will be to prepare quick web pages with links to each destination, then just send a single link to that page. Update: Evernote has created a new tool that makes organizing your goals and ideas easily into vision boards. It's called Milanote and we recommend it.
Milanote is a tool for organizing creative projects into beautiful visual boards. By design, it feels a lot like working on the wall in a creative studio - visual, tactile and sometimes a bit messy - Milanote is a great fit for designers who work in teams remotely.
On a budget? Use TinyLetter to send free email newsletters to up to 5,000 people at once. Perfect for those once a weeks personal looking blasts that you just have to send out.
We recommend this if you need to setup a travel agency blog. Easy to use. Free (even for custom domains) and you can make the design anything you like.
Buffer makes it easy to post to all the social media platforms with a few clicks. Schedule stuff and have it post at just the right time. Easy to use, and a nice free tier.
Have fun with these tools and when you’re ready to graduate to a large suite for travel agencies call us.
