Selling Trips To Parents And Students

You have a great idea for a trip. You just KNOW the kids are going to flock to sign up for this epic adventure which will seamlessly tie together your curriculum and probably put you in the running for teacher of the year. Confidently, you post the sign-up sheet and wait for the signatures to pour in. Three days later, you are still waiting for that first lucky student to put pen to paper. What’s going on?!?

Expert Teacher

As a teacher, you have unique skills and talents. Teachers affect change and influence lives in a way that most people cannot. You’re able to juggle students, parents, administration and community while handling mountains of paperwork and instruction. You recognize teachable moments when they pop up (thus the reason for your trip!) and neatly incorporate them into your instruction. That said, selling student trips to parents and students is probably not in your wheelhouse.

Expert Salesperson?

Being an expert teacher does not necessarily qualify you as an expert in student travel promotion. Regardless of the inherent awesomeness of your trip, it can be a challenge to convince students and parents to sign up. You have to generate a little buzz, create a great marketing campaign, address parent concerns and manage the financial aspects of the experience. In short, it requires a LOT of work!
