We send out highly targeted emails to our continually growing loyal customer base year round. Our campaign performance continually beats industry standards year over year. We do this by segmenting travelers by destination, interest, website activity and past bookings. Then we craft content specific to each segment and deliver it when they want it. We never sell or distribute our customer’s information, however, we DO include our partner’s experiences in our communications.
Don’t have the time to manage the phone? We can provide you with a unique phone number that directs travelers to our team of reservationists that will answer the phone on your behalf. Stop answering the same questions over and over again, get more time back to build your business and let us handle the rest. Pay nothing hourly and nothing upfront. The cost of our staff is included in the commission they generate.
Can you guess who Travelers are most likely to trust and listen to? Yep – other Travelers. TripShock identifies travelers and asks them to tell their story. These stories include pictures of their family and friends and a overview of their experiences. These stories are from verified travelers and let other travelers know what they can expect. TripShock verifies the stories, creates a piece of content around them with a link to the activity the traveler reviewed and publishes them on our sites to help promote your business!
