Why We Don't Include A Website
A common question we receive at Gateway Travel: "Is a website included in my package"? The answer is no. To really understand WHY we don't offer a website you have to understand our MAIN purpose here at Gateway Travel - It is to grow your dreams into reality, not our dreams, YOUR dreams!
A lot of Host Agencies out there charge an enormous $500+ startup fee that brings with it a cookie cutter website. This cookie cutter site is branded and themed at the preference of the Host Agency leaving no individuality or voice for the Travel Agent- We didn't want this for our agents at Gateway Travel.
As you know, at Gateway Travel, we do not charge any startup fees and there are no hidden cost. We believe ALL extra money should be put directly into building your business, not lining our pockets.
One of the areas this extra money can go is to building a website that reflects your personality, your passions, and specific services your clients can expect.
FACEBOOK BUSINESS PAGE
A great option to get started while keeping cost low and growing your brand awareness would be to launch a Facebook Business Page. This is a great way to stay in touch with your client base by posting relevant content and giving you the ability to invite friends and family to your page, message clients, and interact with your community.
If you are looking to "up your game" and launch a legitimate website with your own customizable URL, we can not recommend WIX enough. This is an easy to use website building platform allowing you to drag and drop, create contact forms, and even maintain a blog with subscribers. The possibilities are endless with WIX and prices can be as low as $11 per month.
We do offer a pre-built website option through our partner Travel Leaders - You can read all about it and see samples here - The startup cost for a pre-built website like this can be more hefty but it does provide an immediate, professional, and functional site which many agents do prefer.
Serving our agents is our NUMBER ONE priority - We don't sell travel but strictly focus on providing the best service possible to each and every one of our agents.
Remember, Gateway Travel has NO HIDDEN FEES and NO START UP COST.
