Follow these promotion tips to get your trip confirmed.
So you've launched your trip and collected some bookings, that's a great start! Now you need to keep promoting to get it over the finish line to "confirmed." A confirmed trip means it has received the bookings for the minimum number of Travelers required for it to operate. It's vital that you continue to promote your trip in order to get it confirmed, without enough bookings the trip will be cancelled and no one wants that!
1. Engage your audience.
Utilize Instagram stories' interactive features such as polls, Q&A, etc.
Host an Instagram Live to answer questions on the spot and have real-time dialogue with your audience.
Pro Tip from TrovaTrip Host @onegirlwandering, post a Q&A asking why people are nervous to book, then look at their responses and DM them directly to help address those fears. Better yet, share your response on story so others can learn too!
Ex: They don't have the funds to cover the trip. "Hey there! I saw that you were concerned about the cost of the trip. Did you know that you only need 25% down to book and I'm offering early bird spots at a discount? Plus, you can even apply to set up payment plans with TrovaTrip's partner, Affirm!

Highlight the most bucket-list-worthy activities on the itinerary. Talk about any workshops you're hosting and what your Travelers will get out of them.
Post the trip price.
Highly effective: If you're offering an early bird discount, call out how many spots are left and how much your audience can save by booking now.
Share the trip dates.
P.S. Don't forget to update your bio (or LinkTree) with a link to your trip page. This is a different link than the survey link you started with, so be sure to keep it updated and promote it.
