This Travel Business Success Radio podcast features two highly professional tour operator stakeholders and is a sure way to get you started on the right track to tourism business growth.   Let’s Get to Know Our Guests  Josh Oakes – The Sunshine Tribe Josh Oakes  Josh Oakes with his wife started their tour operator business company back in 2002 with no experience, knowledge and no help. They struggled to navigate the industry waters for a couple of years and were taking in as little as $20,000 in revenue yearly. However, they didn’t let the small numbers influence their work ethic. Instead, they kept improving their strategies, lived their lives to the fullest and hired a consultant to learn as much as they could about the industry they were in. Seven years later, their business was raking in about $2million yearly before they decided to sell it off in 2017 for 7 figures. Josh is seasoned, experienced, highly intelligent and a force to reckon with in the travel business industry.   Kelsey Tonner Kelsey Tonner – Be a Better Guide Academy Kelsey is a highly experienced and talented tour guide who is passionate about creating a network of tour operators to come together, liaise and help each other grow.

One of the most common ones being the failure or inability to overcome fear. Young operators tend to spend a lot of time worrying about whether they will be successful or not and this affects their output. Also, a lack of networks and connections is a huge challenge that new tour operators face. This is because they tend to be a tad clueless as to the running and workings of the industry and this can reflect as poor tourism business & marketing management.  The lack of diversity and different revenue streams also puts a major strain on the tour business in this baby stage. This is due to the fact that owners in this situation find themselves taking so much from the business without plans to replenish these resources. This definitely stunts their tourism business growth success.  Get Direct Insight on the Major Challenges that Mature Tour Operator Businesses Usually Face (15:30-22:40)  Tour business owners definitely go through certain challenges when their business becomes more mature. This could be due to a higher demand for great tourism business management procedures. Maintaining the quality of your tour and experience is a major challenge for tour businesses in this stage as they are dealing with more people and on a larger scale. There is also a need for business owners to always have great back up plans as regarding staff and service quality. Also, taking time to clearly map out the responsibilities of each employee and ensuring they fully understand their various job descriptions will definitely help deal with some of the setbacks you might experience in this stage of your tour operator business. These challenges have to be well overcome for your tourism growth strategies to be effective at all.   Learn About Seven Specific Steps/Factors That Are Critical to Tourism Business Growth (23:30-46:00)  Factors ranging from vision, customer service, quality, etc., to a great knowledge of your audience and customer base are great steps to master to build a concrete tourism business growth.
