This agency is an offshoot from Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs, which offers marketing training to Gifted travel network agents. It was founded by Meredith Hill who was a former owner of the agency.
Hill stated that GTN’s launch is a natural extension to the work Hill has done at Gifte. Success happens when we focus our business on our talented travel professionals and give them the cutting edge marketing tools they need to reach clients in today’s changing market.
Independent agents can join Gifted travel network under one of three “teams.”Laura Del Rosso
The JV Team is the first, and it targets agents who have returned to travel after a break, are looking to rebrand their business, or are brand new to the industry. The JV Program includes mentoring and training programs. It will be launched in 2014.
Varsity is the second level, which is for agents who are experienced and can choose from three commission structures.
Gifted travel network recommends the Elite Team as the highest level for agents who have at least $300,000. GTN invites Elite members to join the Executive Marketing Committee. This committee meets regularly to discuss marketing strategies and to assist with agency operations.
GTN’s Elite Team already includes several veteran agents, such as Jennifer Round and Ann Forehand from Slaydon’s Travel, Lori Hardegree at Destinations Travel, Carolyn Waffle, Certified Gifted travel network, Lindsay Larabee Heabel, Jet to Paradise Travel, and Lisa Fletcher, Signature Escapes.
Members of Varsity or Elite Team pay an annual $249 fee, or opt for a monthly fee of $24.99. Varsity and Elite members can choose from three different commission split options. Additional monthly fees could apply.
JV Team members pay $2,997 one-time for the first 12 month. This includes extensive marketing training that began in 2014.
