Tampa Bay Area On Line 'FAM Tours' is a virtual marketing program designed to acquaint event planning and travel consumers to learn more about local area hotels, convention centers, restaurants, vendors, attractions, and other city services.
"Finally a virtual networking, marketing and search concept that makes sense," says Linda Elland, President of A2Z Meetings and Events. "We have many unique wedding, meeting and travel vendors in the central Florida area, WebEventPlanner.com Virtual Trade Show
and 'FAM Tours' program system allows us all to network and market each others' services and products in a simple to use online networking and marketing tool. Each exhibitor can promote their business, but more importantly promote themselves as industry professionals. I also like the fact that exhibitors on based on qualification, not purchase, providing opportunity to everyone and not just businesses with large budgets. I think this format is great; word of mouth is still a powerful sales tool! I am very excited to be apart of WebEventPlanner.com and would recommend others meeting planning, wedding planning and travel industry vendor businesses across the U.S. get involved."
Educating and Building Rapport with Local Event Planning and Travel Consumers! Virtual 'FAM Tours' promote community and industry businesses, but more importantly they promote community and industry business professionals. "Who better to organize a virtual 'Fam Tour' concept than a community industry professional--
At WebEventPlanner.com, we thought of a search engine as this big messy 'FAM Tour and trade show, and we thought it would be helpful to make it make more sense by turning a messy show into a successful, free 24/7 on line event. "Today's virtual marketing and advertising options offers little personal attention or customer service," says Louis Godin, "WebEventPlanner.com adds that little personal touch of "Sales 101" (customer service, rapport, and education) to all its virtual programs. Search engines provide no rapport building techniques and do not offer a qualified list of industry businesses that may be beneficial in our search. Many times search engines provide us with the companies with top advertising dollars or with information that is unorganized and outdated. We have to dig and dig to extract an array of access links and information we are looking for."
'FAM Tours' and Virtual trade shows allow the event planning and travel consumer to browse vendors and attend show events in the comfort of their own home or office providing additional options and convenience when in the planning and buying process. Industries such as travel, wedding planning and meeting planning consumers do not always know what they are looking for. They often want various options.
