  • Hi Dear Travel Agents.
    Join us for a Free Webinar on Wednesday, August 25.
    Time: 2:00 PM CDT

    Select Italy started its webinar series in January 2010 and is now conducting two distinct sets of twice-monthly webinars just for Travel Agents. The first is a General Introduction to our award-winning website and Service Portfolio; the second, the InFocus webinar, highlights the continuous stream of exciting, new services that we bring to the marketplace, along with the exclusive Travel Agent-only features that we offer for FREE. The objective of this two-pronged communications effort is to ensure that an increasing number of Travel Agents are aware of the resources they have right at their fingertips and to teach them how to best use these resources in three simple steps.

    1. Become familiar with the product
    Discover the full extent of Select Italy's product portfolio with our General Introduction webinar series (or listen to previous sessions that are available online 24/7). Furthermore, boost your expertise with our InFocus webinars dedicated to the steady stream of new products and services that we offer you and your clients.
    2. Become familiar with the commission and mark-up admin interface
    The powerful Travel Agent interface on our website is "designed to please" and ensures that you have full control over "what, when and how" you sell. Use this handy interface to calibrate commissions and mark-ups, and to refine your control over your revenue stream.
    3. Become familiar with our Travel Agent-only resources
    To honor the special relationship we have with our fellow Travel Agents, we make available the following Travel Agent-only resources:
    * Il Postino, Select Italy's monthly newsletter just for travel agents – 6 intriguing articles of news about Italy, sales ideas and ready-to-use information.
    * "Tips for Travelers" ("T4T" for short), our unique database of travel recommendations that allows you to create, save and print off special sets of customized travel recommendations.

    Both of these FREE resources are produced for you, and you only, to help you gain even more authority and prestige in front of your customers.

    1, 2, 3: acquire additional knowledge with these FREE and EASY-TO-FOLLOW webinars to boost your sales and revenue!
