Brownell-Advantage-2The Brownell Advantage: Why Our Hosting Program Stands Above the Rest

Finding the perfect host agency may seem like a daunting task, but the decision is easy! The Brownell Hosting and Mentoring Programs offer incredible support that give you the freedom to do exactly what you want to do: sell travel. Home to many industry leaders recognized by Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure, our programs’ many resources allow advisors to rise to the top. Below are the Top 5 favorite aspects of our program:

1. Vendor Relationships

Brownell is a member of Virtuoso, a network of the world’s finest travel agencies. Virtuoso allows advisors to offer their clients exclusive amenities, offers, and experiences that you can’t get anywhere else. In addition to Virtuoso, Brownell is a preferred partner and top producer of many hotels and travel providers. Ritz Carlton STARS, Four Seasons Preferred Partners, Mandarin Oriental Fan Club, Dorchester Diamond Club, A&K 100 club, Silversea Silver Society, and Seabourn Pinnacle Society are just a few of the partnerships that further allow advisors to offer their clients the best of the best.

2. Accounting Help

Our travel advisors joined the Brownell family to sell travel, not to be an accountant. The support team takes care of your settlement statements and sends advisors a rundown of weekly sales. There’s no long list to sift through to find sales; we’ve got it covered!

3. Travel Tribe

At Brownell, we are a community. Though our advisors are spread across the country, we keep them connected with one another though Travel Tribe, a private online forum. 24/7 advisors can be in touch with the entire sales team and managers through this incredible resource.

4. Marketing Services

There’s no need to hire an expensive marketing firm to get your information out there. Brownell has its own marketing team that can help you. They create a microsite on the Brownell website, send newsletters and offers to your clients, help with social media, design ads and press releases for you and more!

5. Brownell Academy

Every year the entire Brownell family comes together for a weekend of learning, sharing, and fun! Our independent associates especially look forward to this weekend because it is a great opportunity for them to spend some one-on-one time with their inside and independent advisor peers, the Brownell executives, support staffs, and key supplier colleagues. The meeting ends with an Awards and Recognition Dinner that recognizes team and individual accomplishments.

We work tirelessly to give advisors all the support and resources they need to be the best in the industry. “It’s easy to overlook the importance of [these resources], but as someone who was a one person show for another small business, I realize just how difficult it is to do these tasks myself and how indispensable [the support staff] is!” said one of our independent advisors.
