Technology, training and lead-generation are key factors in attracting new agencies
Toronto (August 20, 2019) – Today, TL Network Canada announced that it continues to grow by increasing its Canadian membership with the addition of 14 new member agencies year to date in 2019. Christine James, TL Network’s Vice President who oversees the organization’s operations in Canada, attributes the steady increase to a very targeted approach to membership growth, along with innovative training enhancements and award-winning tools, which are important to attracting new members and driving high quality leads. TL Network is the largest seller of luxury travel, cruises, river cruises and tours in North America.
“We are continuously providing our member agencies with industry-leading technology offerings and newly enhanced products, which helps them to grow their bottom line and stand out from the competition,” said James. “During the first half of 2019 alone, we’ve experienced a 72 percent year-over-year increase in leads generated through our one-of-a-kind online lead generation tool, Agent Profiler, which is located at CanadianTravelAgents.ca.”
James continued, “On the education front, we continue to raise the bar by offering on-demand lessons, webinars, and workshops throughout the year both virtually and in person to help advance our members with a wide variety of learning options.”

Asmeetaa More, Owner of Choice Travel in Edmonton, AB, recently joined TL Network Canada because her agency recognized the need to align themselves with a large agency organization and benefit from its extensive list of preferred suppliers. “The TL Network team has been incredible to associate with. The value-added benefits, including advanced technology tools like CruisePro, are very user friendly, and being able to access multiple marketing programs offers higher profitability for our agency. We highly recommend being a part of this agency organization and look forward to a mutually beneficial affiliation with TL Network and Sue Urie in Western Canada.”

Additionally, the TL Network portal has everything our agency is looking for — value prices for our customers and good commissions for our agents.
