2. Make it personal

What was your first travel experience? Your favorite memory from a tour? Something that changed your perspective while on a trip? Your stories are powerful, so share them with others. These tales from your adventures can help generate word of mouth about your upcoming trip. Remember that a prospective group member may be new to world travel, so hearing about your journey may be just the thing to kick-start their own.

3. Make it real

There are so many ways you can bring a destination to life for your travelers. If you’ll be visiting Spain, host a tapas dinner to give them a taste of what the trip will be like. Share a list of your favorite books and movies related to the place you’ll be visiting. However you choose to highlight your destination, tap into the senses to help potential travelers dream about the experience that’s in their future.
