4 Things to Do Before Switching Your Host Agency

Just like changing jobs, switching host agencies can be very stressful. You may be ready for something more, but taking the leap into something unknown can scare even the most seasoned professional. To avoid making a rash choice – or getting stuck in decision paralysis – do these four things before switching your host agency.

Why

In the words of Simon Sinek, “start with why.” Brainstorm the top three reasons why you want to change host agencies. Consider what is missing from your current host agency that has you ready to switch. Whatever the reasons may be, put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to make a list that will guide you through the process.

What

Once you have determined why you need to switch host agencies, determine specifically what you need from your next agency. (See what Brownell offers here!) Whether it is marketing support to reach new audiences, accounting reports to keep track of your business, air assistance to offer to your clients, educational travel opportunities, or something in between, know what your priorities are in a host.

Do Your Research

Now it’s time to research. Look at potential host agency’s websites and even talk to some of your top supplier partners about the different agencies on your shortlist. They can often provide helpful feedback from a different point of view. Keep your list of reasons why you want to change and what your key requirements are top of mind during your research so you can focus on the host agencies that fit your needs.

Interview

Once you’ve narrowed it down to a few host agencies, take time to interview each one. Be honest about what you need in a host agency in order to reach your long-term goals and provide the best experience for you clients. The interview process is just as important to you as it is to the potential host agency.

Once you have established why you want to change, what you will need, and have done your research, you can confidently decide which host agency will be the best fit for you.
