You deserve a website that takes you from overlooked to fully booked

WELCOME

WEBSITE IN A WEEKEND

You deserve a website that takes you from overlooked to fully booked

SPRING 2024

  • Arrive on Day 1 empty-handed.
  • Leave on Day 2 with a breathtaking website.
  • 100% of participants have been able to do this – so can you!
  • If you are not proud of your website and it’s not converting strangers into email subscribers, and email subscribers into paying clients – it is failing you.

So how is your current website really doing?

A good website will convert a visitor into either an email subscriber or an appointment, phone call, or email. 

Anything less than that… your website has failed you.

How many of these statements ring true for you? 

Is your website…

01

Embarrassing?

This is usually a result of DIY gone wrong. No matter how hard you try, even buying a template and a course, DIY websites will always look DIY. 

In the same way, you want people to use you for your expertise, you should use an expert for your website. 

With our help, you’ll never feel embarrassed to send someone to your website again. 

You’ll feel proud, excited, and confident about the experience they will have.

02

Not your niche?

This is common for travel advisors who are given websites to customize from their host agency. Because it wasn’t built for your travel business it is generic.

It has generic travel images, generic copy (words), and generic pages. It shouldn’t be that way. 

Your website should only show the destinations and experiences of the type of travel you want to sell. 

It shouldn’t send your visitors away from your website. It should convert them to appointments and email subscribers.

03

Out of your control?

If your site is controlled by someone else, if it has ads on it, if your email list is marketed on “your behalf”, you don’t have your hands on the wheel of your own business. 

As a business owner, you need to control the narrative of your business which means having the capacity to change 100% of your website 24/7. 

If you change host agencies or become an independent travel advisor, take your website with you and you won’t start from scratch.

Lisa Traynor on why she signed up and what her experience was like...

I chose to do TMM Website in a Weekend because I wanted a website I could be proud of, one that reflected me as a Travel Advisor, one that would inspire potential clients and one that would represent my brand to the best of its ability.

I knew my DIY website was not it. I was not proud of it; therefore I did not promote it. And that made no sense!

I knew my website was my “store-front” and needed to be the best it could be. But I needed serious help to get it there.

Once I clicked the “Register Now” button I felt this huge sense of relief – help was on the way!

I started to get nervous, but reminded myself that my DIY attempt could not get any worse so this weekend could only improve the situation.

And once I started receiving the emails from Sandra on things we needed to do before the workshop I was nothing but excited!

They were so helpful and really made the pre-workshop planning process easy and much less intimidating.

I was very uncertain about my ability to write effective copy. I did not know how to pick inspiring pictures, how to lay out the framework.

I am not a web designer. That is why I needed help.

I felt very supported and encouraged throughout the weekend.

Having the Travel Marketing & Media ® team in a private chat room to fix any issues in real time was fantastic.

Having our questions answered as we moved through the process was very helpful. It made the entire process make more sense.

Building the website in real time, going step by step not only built my site, but gave me the knowledge I needed to be able to run and work in my site. That is huge!

 

I can make changes, I understand how it works and I don’t have to be intimated anymore.

I am so proud of it! I love it! It was SO worth it!


There were so many highlights. But seeing my website come together and be a representation of my brand is the cherry on top of the ice cream on top of the cake! It now really is something I am proud of. It clearly defines my niche. It speaks to those I want to work with.

 

I am so glad I made this investment and would recommend it to anyone.

IF YOU FEEL ANY OF THAT PAIN, IT’S TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE.

You can’t have a stable and profitable travel business without a consistent stream of new clients.

Most travel advisors (around 99% of the ones that we know) hate their websites.

They are either embarrassed by it or say that it doesn’t reflect the type of travel that they want to sell.

They want a website that reflects the type of travel they want to sell and one that attracts the type of clients they want to work with – their ideal client.

When people visit your website they are looking for three things

YOUR TRAVEL BUSINESS DESERVES BETTER (SO DO YOU)

Stop being overlooked and start being fully booked

JUST IMAGINE GOING FROM

TO THRIVING BY HAVING THIS

By the end of this weekend program, you will have…

BENEFIT #1

A perfectly clear core message (elevator pitch) that you can tell the world with confidence.

BENEFIT #2

A stunning visual brand board that you can share with new team members as you onboard or outsource, ensuring that new content and assets are created with consistency.

BENEFIT #3

An entire website of copy (content) written with our high converting framework based on the Storybrand method and adjusted to travel consumers.

BENEFIT #4

The confidence to use our writing framework when you sit down to write social posts, emails, or marketing materials moving forward. The tactics and skills you will learn will serve you for many years to come.

BENEFIT #5

A beautifully laid out website that is ready to connect as soon as you are. It will have images (provided by us, chosen by you) and copy that is in direct alignment with your sales goals.

BENEFIT #6

Clarity on how to move forward with editing your site when you need to. You’ll know how to add new content such as blogs/articles, podcast episodes or videos, pages for group travel or make simple edits.

Ready for your new website?

When it’s broken, replace it

It makes zero sense to have a website that doesn’t work. Not only is it counterproductive. It actually does your business harm. It’s like having a bad storefront, only it’s open 24/7 for the whole world to find. 

If you aren’t currently getting enough bookings, not having a high converting website is your first problem.

If you are getting enough bookings, but are getting the wrong type of clients, your website is also hurting you. 

Every travel advisor should have a website that reflects their niche and attracts the type of traveler that they want to work with. Isn’t that a basic business right? Yet our industry doesn’t set you up that way. It’s time you took control of your business.

INTRODUCING WEBSITE IN A WEEKEND…

In just one weekend you can have a new website for your travel business.

In just one weekend Sandra and her team will walk you step by step through the process of creating a breathtaking travel website. 

By the end of the weekend you will have completed the following tasks with our expert support and guidance:

WHAT IF YOU HAVE A WEBSITE FROM YOUR
HOST AGENCY OR FRANCHISE?

We hear this often. Firstly, know that you’re not alone. 

We love that host agencies and franchises set up travel advisors with websites because otherwise most of you would have nothing at all.

But here’s the problem… the website you are given likely has one or more of the following challenges:

  1. You may have supplier ads all over your site that click through to them or advertise promotions (giving your website visitors the impression that you are price competitive)

     

  2. While your website doesn’t reflect that, you may have declared a niche like family, romance, river cruising, food, ocean cruising, etc. If your website doesn’t reflect your niche, it definitely won’t resonate with your ideal client when they visit it.

     

  3. It’s possible that if you are focused on building your email list, your host agency or franchise is also marketing to that same list. Some agencies have been known to distribute your leads to the highest selling advisors. This means that your subscriber list isn’t really yours and as a business owner it is actually one of your most important marketing assets. 

     

  4. You are probably very limited in the type of changes that you can make to your website. Can you change the branding? Can you add new pages? Can you change the layout? Can you embed opt-in forms? Can you remove any advertising? As a business owner, it is critical that you control your business’s narrative, which means that you need to have your hands on the wheel at all times.

Kim shares her experience on why she signed up and the fears that she had going into the event

I chose Website in a Weekend because I was ready to graduate from a DIY website with images that were too large and copy that was too wordy and didn’t communicate my value or fully explain my services in an effective way.

 

Going into the weekend, I was excited and open to learning but also a little apprehensive that I would be writing code and not being able to get through the material in one weekend.

 

I was confident that with direction and editing, I would come away with well-written copy that communicated what I wanted to potential clients.

 

Throughout the experience, I felt supported and encouraged.

 

There was some level of business coaching as part of the weekend that helped me decide to finally start charging planning fees with the launch of my new website.

 

I have always been excited and proud of my business and the services I provide.

 

After Website in a Weekend, I feel like my website now matches that pride and confidence and portrays it to the world in a well thought out and beautiful format!

 

The highlight of the experience was opening the template of my new website for the very first time and being blown away by the gorgeous layout that I know would have taken me months of you tube videos to even attempt to put together half as well on my own.

website in a weekend

WHAT WILL MY WEBSITE LOOK LIKE?

The layout we begin with was designed by Sandra McLemore. It is a hybrid of Donald Miller’s StoryBrand framework (Sandra traveled to Nashville to study in person with him) and Sandra’s 2 decades of travel industry experience. While you start out with the same foundation as other travel advisors, the end result is uniquely yours.

  • It will have your visual brand – colors, font pairing and logo
  • It will have your copy (words)
  • It will have images that reflect your niche (the type of travel that you want to sell) so that it resonates with the type of people you want to book (your ideal client).

Want to see what the layout will look like? Here’s a preview of the new 2023 FALL Design

SUPPORT & GUIDANCE

Our team of writers and designers will be on standby during the breakout sessions to provide support and answer any questions. The maximum number of travel advisors in your breakout pod will be 11 which means unlike our HUGE training events, you’re going to get a lot of attention.

 

We specifically build websites on the Wix platform due to its ease of use. If you’re a visual learner you’ll love their online knowledge base and YouTube tutorials for additional support.

 

Because you will be so hands-on building your website, we have no doubt that you’ll be able edit and manage your site, or hire someone to do that.

WHEN IS IT AND WHAT IF I CAN’T MAKE IT?

Website in a Weekend will be held October 27 & 28. It will not be recorded as it is a LIVE interactive workshop event with hands on sessions and real time coaching. It just doesn’t work as a replay. If you cannot attend this weekend you can join the waitlist for our next one later in the year. Prices are subject to change, and a date has not been set. You will be required to pay the workshop price increase.

Let our team know if you are unable to join on October 27 & 28. If we have enough interest we may be able to run a second one this Fall.

FAQ

$1947 for our early bird rate. This goes up on Sep 30 (don’t confuse that with our Super Early Bird bonus benefits that end on Sep 20).

This is an absolute steal because not only are you getting your website up and connecting in record time, you’re getting two days of coaching and mentorship from Sandra and her team that will serve you for many years to come in your travel business.You will be able to add pages to your website and confidently write copy and choose images.

WIX will. When your site is done you will connect the domain (www.yourwebsite.com) to your host. WIX hosts all of the websites itself which makes it really easy. Unlike WordPress websites, you don’t have to do weekly or monthly maintenance/updates. WIX takes care of it for you.

Yes. The hosting is a monthly fee that you will pay directly to WIX when you connect your site. It’s around $13/month. There is also an option to pay annually. You should already have your domain. If you do not, we recommend buying it from Google Domains. It will cost you $12/year. There will be no other costs to run your website. You will need to invest in marketing your business.

Yes. If you need a 3 month or 6 month payment plan, we offer those.

Sign up closes two weeks prior to the session. We no longer accept late sign ups however we can accommodate you by putting you on the list for the following year.

While you start out with the same foundation as other travel advisors, the end result is uniquely yours. Once your visual branding (colors, logo, font pairings), images, and copy (content) are added, you’re looking at a different website. 

 

The navigation and layout stays the same, but if you look closely at airline, hotel, bank or department store websites, they are all the same. 

 

Why? Because the layouts work. They are what consumers expect and need to see in order to convert visitors into paying clients.

Yes, you will be sent a few videos to watch and a small number of non-technical tasks to do before the event. They should take you no more than 2-3 hours total time.

85% of previous attendees have not needed any further help but if you find yourself wanting to work with our design team, you can purchase either a one or two hour package of time. This will give you 1:1 live changes with a designer so not only will your problem be fixed, but you’ll also see the designer do it in real time so that you can see how it’s done.

The only reason you would get stuck on Day 1 is if you choose to not make a decision or start overthinking your business. Sandra will guide you through the process and you can always circle back and change your copy (content) later on. As long as you keep moving forward you won’t get stuck. On Day 2, as we start to lay out the copy and images on the website, we move slowly. You shouldn’t get stuck but if for any reason you do, there will be group breakout sessions with a designer as well as your 1:1 support pass that you can use later that week. WIX support is extremely helpful and supportive and usually problems can be fixed within a few minutes.

You do not need to have website building or any coding experience however you do need to be comfortable with basic computer skills. If you can currently navigate programs such as Google Drive, Canva, Travefy, Windows, Microsoft Office, you will be fine. If you struggle with those, this might not be for you.

WIX. It is 100% fact that no search engine has preference for any platform over the other. When it comes to choosing a platform you need one that matches your skill set. While WordPress has the capability to get fancy with plugins and themes, it also has an incredible learning curve that takes months/years. You can become comfortable with WIX in a matter of minutes. WIX also has a support department and WordPress does not. Support is important once your site goes live.

Because you play such a big role in the creation of the site you will confidently be able to edit it yourself. If for some reason you choose not to, feel free to have an assistant do it for you. We strongly recommend that they do not change the layout at all and only add new content for you.

We suggest adding content to your website weekly, either a new podcast episode, blog/article or video that shows off your expertise and authority.

You’ll need to promote your website to drive traffic to it. The biggest mistake that all website owners make is that they don’t promote their business. They create a website and make a few posts to social media thinking that’s all they need to do. You need a high converting marketing funnel. If you don’t know how to do that, don’t worry. We can teach you how. It won’t be in this course but it’s what we specialize in at TMM. We suggest investing in our online signature course Travel Marketing Revolution and also joining our membership. And of course don’t forget to check out our podcast.

No, we simply won’t have the time to teach the background, the strategy, and to create one. Instead, we will create a space for your visitors to opt-in to your email list, set up your opt-in form, and create your welcome email. Then, when you have your lead magnet ready, you’ll simply replace the wording on the opt-in form and welcome letter – they will already be set up for you.

No. Recording of the event is prohibited and there will not be a replay. This is a live event where like-minded business owners will work together on their individual businesses. For the privacy of each attendee, the event will not be recorded for distribution. TMM may record the event for team training and improvement purposes only. But don’t worry, we will provide you with plenty of direction, support, and coaching to get everything done. You won’t need a recording!

If your website is not converting visitors to email subscribers or appointments and phone calls.... it is failing you.
