Explore opens agent Facebook group
by Laura Gelder
As part of its enhanced commitment to working with travel agents, adventure tour operator Explore has launched a dedicated Facebook group for agents and a launch competition – to win a place on a fam trip to Sri Lanka.
Agents that join the closed ‘Explore Agents’ group will be the first to hear about the tour operator’s latest incentives and fam trips. They will also get access to the latest news on product launches, campaigns and special offers.
The platform is also designed as a place for agents to engage with Explore’s sales team, access educational content and provide direct feedback.
To encourage agents to sign up, Explore is offering agents the opportunity to win a place on a seven night Highlight of Sri Lanka fam trip in August 2019. Every agent that joins the group before April 30 will be entered into a draw. Agents can increase their chances of winning by adding other agents to the group too.
Ben Ittensohn, Head of Global Sales at Explore, sais: “We recognise the essential role that travel agents play in our business so we are looking for new and innovative ways to support and engage with them. Our new Facebook group will make it easier for agents to find out all the latest information, keep up to date with our sales and campaigns and help us strengthen relationships along the way.”
