Steve Crowhurst founder of SMP Training offers TAs training by Skype
To Crowhurst, Skype is a fantastic sales tool and he includes how to use it in his workshops and webinars - it is also listed as Idea #216 in his book 273 No-Fluff, No-Theory Marketing Ideas for Travel Agents.
The program Crowhurst is offering allows a travel agent to Skype with Steve for one hour per session after emailing Steve with the topic to be discussed and preferred date and time. Once confirmed, the travel agent Skypes Steve and the coaching session begins as Crowhurst works with the travel agent, face-to-face as they discuss ideas to increase sales. By sharing desktops Crowhurst can demonstrate software, deliver a webinar, a presentation and share documents, too. The Facebook offer ends May 31st and the hourly rate will be $35 + taxes.
Crowhurst also offers a management level version of Skype With Steve and the management session lasts 90 minutes and costs $75/session.
In recent years Crowhurst has conducted in-agency training by Skype and has also been beamed to the big screen to appear at conferences, meetings and training sessions. More information can be found here: http://www.sellingtravel.net/skype-with-steve.html
