Here you will find the most absolute and practical ways of discovering the most profitable travel business niche ideas that will ensure GUARANTEED SUCCESS.
Alright, so when anyone thinks about the idea of becoming a new travel agent, they start thinking that they have to know everything about flights, cruises, world geography, industry terminology, etc.
But the answer is …No! you don’t have to know everything!
The real question is what you are going to specialize in?
The possibility is that you will be an average travel agent in your life if you try to achieve everything at once.
Even today, there you can see a lot of all-rounder travel agents, but now is the time to focus on specialization for greater popularity and higher profits.
Ok Ok enough. So what’s a travel niche?
“Finding a narrow area of focus for your travel business”. It can be romance travel, solo travel, cruising, or anything related to the travel industry.
Your niche should be your bread and butter and consistently making you profits. You can certainly move on to some other add-ons but only when you are dominating that expertise.
Focus on the minute details about your niche and know everything that falls in that category.
So what’s the catch?
You have to be very passionate about what you choose. You must have some prior knowledge and understanding about what you are going to do.
For example, you have been on a tiger safari in Jim Corbett, and you made some contacts with the suppliers, vendors, and guides there.
You might be able to sustain that business because you know everything about it.
Now you can think of various journeys that still get you excited.
And that could be one way of finding your niche.
Now the questions are, could that be something you can sell? Do you have a clientele for that? How much confidence do you feel selling it?
Obviously, these examples are very extreme, but we guess you get an idea about what a niche is all about.
There are certain products that you can become a niche in like family tours, LGBTQ tours, adventure tours to name a few.
There are destinations that you can become a niche in like Kashmir, Leh Ladakh, Kerala.
And there are a lot of other products in the travel industry which you can focus on.
So take a deep breath, think about what it is that you want to do in this industry, and decide if specializing is right for you.
Think about your clientele, who they are? Define them and get yourself in front of them as a specialist and expert.
So when trying to determine your niche, ask yourself some questions:
- Which travel experience is your favorite and has been most impactful in your life?
- What are you most interested in selling?
- Do your current clients align with your niche?
- Is it narrow enough to be a niche?
The specialty will make you win the trust of your prospects.
So before going all in, just be sure and ask yourself these very IMPORTANT questions:
How passionate are you about a particular travel product or service?
Do you really care enough about that travel product or service?
Do you have enough knowledge about your niche?
What skills do you have?
Who is in your network?
Who are your business connections?
So make sure you completely understand it, you’re knowledgeable about it, and you’re passionate about it.
Target the right clientele.
Understand your clientele needs.
And BE PATIENT.
It will surely take longer than you think. So plan accordingly.
Have a great entrepreneurial journey ahead. Cheers!
