                     There is money in Groups!

This will be a ongoing topic that we'll cover.  Small groups or large, there is money to be made on groups.  A lot of agents are trying to solely focus on groups.  Why?  The profit margin is tremendous!  One or 2 groups can make your yearly salary!   My most profitable group was a private school trip to Russia, which netted me over $20,000.  Pursuing groups is working smarter, not harder.


So how do you start?  One of the most popular pursuits is doing joint ventures.  A joint venture is looking for a business that has a product or service that can align with a travel product, which in turn helps them with client loyalty, new client attainment, client retention and adds to their bottom line.


The first example we'll discuss are Yoga instructors.  Yoga instructors are serious about their craft, as are a lot of their long term students.  A lot of them are looking for something that will not only set them apart from their competition but that will increase their profits.  We can help with that.

We can arrange retreats or tours for them to market to their clients.   


Retreats:   These can be simple or complex.  The client could have a 2-10 day retreat at a resort or a private home, either domestically or internationally.   Their retreat can be a mix of meditation & yoga sessions, vegan cooking classes, classes & private sessions.   The instructor could set this up to continue one or more components, once home.  This would glean the instructor with money from the retreat & additional residual income.
