passport to socialsocial media for travel advisors
Passport to Social
Throughout the past months I have pivoted in my social strategies from sharing how to bring the world in your home, to traveling myself to show how travel is reopening, to posting about how hotels were evolving & where you can travel now, to looking into the future for when we are able to travel the world again. And you know what? It worked. I have actually grown my client base during COVID as well as had fellow travel advisors (you!) asking to buy templates, for advice, and more. Which is where the idea of Passport to Social was born back in July…
If you are looking for something completely automated that you never have to think of that runs in the background, this service is not for you. My approach to social media fuses the tangible information, promotions & inspiration your clients & potential clients are looking for with beautiful aesthetics and personal touches.
There’s a reason the job of a Travel Agent has evolved into the role and lifestyle of a Travel Advisor. We don’t run our businesses on a transactional basis, and I wholeheartedly believe our social media accounts should reflect this as well. With that being said, the entire idea behind this service is to make your life immensely easier when it comes to social media. We’ve all been there (hey, me too) – constantly asking yourself questions like: what do I post? How do I engage my clients? How do I attract NEW clients?
I’m also not here to pretend that you are going to grow to over 20k followers overnight, because to be honest it took me 5 years to grow the following I have. However what this membership does include are proven strategies and content that have attracted new (qualified!) clients through social media, even during COVID.
Your full-time job is a Luxury Travel Advisor, not a Social Media Manager, although putting together social media content can often be so daunting it feels like a full-time job. Passport to Social is here to help!
This service is geared towards but NOT limited to Virtuoso advisors. Please scroll down to the Q&A to find out more information.

a few facts about chelsea
I was able to build a successful travel advising business, primarily through social media. And one thing to note on this too is that these clients were not all completely random followers. Some of these clients were acquaintances or friends of clients who started following me and after seeing what I can offer my clients, decided to use a Travel Advisor for the first (and never looked back!)
