Travel / Hospitality

Ready-to-go Solutions for Your Agents and Agencies

The travel and hospitality industry has weathered significant changes, during the global pandemic and over the past decades. This is why most consumers rely on expert travel agents for guidance on what to look for and what to avoid. When it comes to cruising, resorts and excursions, agents represent a big portion of trips sold throughout the world, because they have the knowledge and experience to guide the customer, and they can usually find the best deals. Agents would rather help clients and sell more for the brands than navigate and execute their own marketing. SproutLoud’s Distributed Marketing platform makes it easy to automate co-branded messaging and marketing, so that your agents can quickly access and enroll in automated marketing programs to get all the itineraries and locations you’re promoting in front of customers on a regular basis.

SproutLoud offers self-service and fully automated programs, with set-it-and-forget-it options, so agents get more timely, relevant, brand-compliant messaging out to current and prospective travel customers.

Agents Going Rogue

Is it easier for agents to run their own campaigns? For many agents, dealing with complex brand guidelines means taking time away from customers. SproutLoud’s Distributed Marketing software solution makes marketing as simple as point-and-click, with rules-based automation that makes it faster and more cost-effective to get even more campaigns to market.

Agents Not Participating in Campaigns

SproutLoud delivers solutions with measurable results. Our programs historically see more than 70% agent engagement in the programs we run on behalf of travel and hospitality companies. SproutLoud takes a data-driven approach, showing agents how they are doing in local markets. We provide digital scorecards, custom marketing plans and a Marketing Concierge™ to do the heavy lifting for them.

Lack of Analytics

With SproutLoud’s Distributed Marketing software, all local campaign execution occurs in a controlled, measurable environment. This allows brands to invest in what works and improve efficiency in marketing spend.

No Connection between National and Local Campaigns

It’s crucial to connect national campaigns to local advertising with CTAs specific to local agents. SproutLoud uses rules-based automation, so only current ads are available to agents, and messages are clear at the local level.

Too Many Customization Requests from End Users

Travel and Hospitality companies that use manual processes to customize advertising for local agents typically face serious challenges with brand compliance. SproutLoud creates dynamic templates that are pre-set with brand-compliant options, which agents can easily use to customize local ads. No need for email requests, ad agencies, nor lengthy approval processes.

Scaling marketing at the local level, brand-compliant customization and amazing customer service are 3 reasons Cruise Planners chose SproutLoud.
