Is anyone on here a travel agent working from home that i could ask some questions to please? Ive been given an opportunity to do this but would like to talk to someone whos doing it / has done it . Thanks in advance Vicky
Thanks so much for your reply I enquired with travel councellors some.time ago but my experience isn't current enough for most agents however a high street agent who are taking on home workers are willing to give me a chance on my experience.from years ago !!!!
This role I have to find my own clients they don't generate leads for me I was just wondering realistically how difficult this was and what the best ways to advertise are ? I'm thinking Facebook Twitter leaflets through doors posters in public areas etc
How Many hours a week do you need to work to earn a reasonable living ?
Is it feesable for me to try and work with a 3 year old around ? ( she will be in. Nursery 3 hours a day )
Do you work all evenings / weekends ?
Do you set working hours and sit at your desk waiting for phone to ring or potter about the.house and answer it when it rings then.go to computer ?
Also this company you use.your home phone number do you get calls.off.people all times.of day / night and.Do you always answer ?
Probably too many questions lol but just some things I've been thinking of any answers will be great !
ive figured out now really you need a business phone line set up so its proffesional and no unsociable hours calls and no risk of kids answering phone.................just working out of its worth doing it all now ?
Most of mum's calls are "unsociable hours" as people who have the money to book expensive holidays tend to work all hours. You could get a mobile fairly cheaply to take calls, the main cost is likely to be brochures and stationery, data and printer ink.
