Our goal for the Epperly Travel Mentorship Program is not only to start or elevate your travel career, it’s to provide you with the kind of support and tools to find continued success, year after year.
Why be a travel advisor?
BE YOUR OWN BOSS
CHOOSE YOUR WORK ENVIRONMENT
WRITE YOUR OWN PAYCHECK
Though we do provide you with the training, materials, and resources necessary to be successful under our name, we want you to exercise a level of independence in terms of developing the system that works best for you. We are a resource when you have questions and a home base for your career path.
When managing your day-to-day book of business, you are free to work from your couch with coffee in hand, in an office space, or even across the globe (because you have to test out the products!) – whatever you choose. We recognize the value of doing what inspires you in a place that inspires you, and we encourage you to do what makes you happiest.
One of the biggest misconceptions about the travel industry is that you cannot make money while being an agent – we know for a fact that this is not the case! As a sales based position, you truly get back what you put in, and the mentorship we provide helps you see how to scale your business from the ground up. If you are prepared to hustle, you can earn an excellent income as a full time travel consultant!
What can you expect from the Mentorship Program?
We Meet You Where You’re at to Get You Where You Want to Go
ORIENTATION + MARKETING CALLS
The Epperly Travel Mentorship Program includes access to the EntreTravel training framework to establish your industry foundation. With 12 modules total, this teaches you how to run your book of business like a business.
We make it easy to get to know the Epperly culture, technology and preferred suppliers during our orientation. Additionally, we offer a one-on-one marketing call that’s all about strengthening and putting your marketing plan into action.
Our leadership team will oversee 3 bookings with you from start to finish. During this time, you are also invited to participate in the Epperly Travel Google Group help board and monthly Zoom team & supplier calls.
We Care About the Culture
At Epperly Travel, our team’s goal is to always provide an approachable, boutique feel. Our agents cheer one another on to celebrate our wins together. This is not a competition, it’s a community. This is Team Epp!
ACCESS TO THE LEADERSHIP TEAM
We run an open door policy in our office. Not only will someone from the team be available to you during office hours, we are also an open ear for feedback and ideas.
DOING OUR PART
We are dedicated to giving back to the community and doing so with our team in mind. Qualified team members are invited to provide their charity of choice to receive a portion of the company’s annual proceeds – oftentimes, we even have the opportunity to invite your clients into this program! This contribution is made on our agency’s behalf on an agency level – never impacting your bottom line.
YOU'RE PART OF IT ALL
You’ll receive access to our exclusive Epperly familiarization trips, innovative virtual and in-person supplier meetings (typically take place in Atlanta), our monthly virtual meetings an open office hours, Google Groups to communicate with the team regularly, and our Google Drive with tons of supplier information, informative videos and more.
We Provide You with the Tools You Need to Succeed
THE STRONGEST PARTNER RELATIONSHIPS
We Want to Help You Grow Long After Graduation
The mentorship, education and community you receive lasts long after your graduation. You’ll always have access to the Internal Team for questions and assistance and, should you be interested in scaling your travel business to build out your own team of IC’s or assistants, you’ll have the mentorship of those who have done it before you to ensure you take the right next steps. Additionally, Epperly advisors can expect:
LEAD GENERATION PROGRAM
For agents who are looking to grow their business, we offer you the opportunity to opt into the Lead Generation Program, where you’ll be in rotation to receive pre-qualified leads.
If you need an introduction or someone to give you advice in the middle of an emergency, this is where we shine post-graduation. We leverage our relationships on behalf of our agents to make sure you and your clients are always taken care of.
