Travel Business Management

Travel Joy is a CRM (Client Relationship Management) program with tons of great features. Communicate with clients, create proposals and itineraries, and invoice and collect payments all in one easy-to-use system. Plus, get 50% off your first three months when you use the link.

Create and edit PDFs, create fillable forms, and collect signatures on contracts and client agreements with Adobe Acrobat. Perfect for combining client itineraries and attachments into one easy-to-navigate PDF.

If you don't use an itinerary software like Travefy or Umapped, you can create beautiful proposals and itineraries using Canva. I use them for my highest budget trip proposals for that "wow" factor.

Email / Websites

Easily create and manage your email list and create simple landing pages with ConvertKit. Basic subscriptions are free, and you can increase your plan as your email list grows. An email service provider like ConvertKit is essential if you want to grow your travel agency.

Build custom websites using pre-made templates and a drag and drop editor with Wix.

Social Media

Whether you're creating beautiful infographics, simple Instagram posts, or videos and reels, Canva's library of beautiful images, easy-to-customize templates, and videos will be your new best friend.

Schedule your social media, create custom saved hashtag lists, and access link in bio setup to make managing your social media easy with Later. Simple scheduling solutions for Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Pinterest and LinkedIn.

Photo / Video

Take your photos and videos from ordinary to extraordinary with Lightroom. Easy, one-click editing with presets, or edit every element of your photo if that's what you prefer. The only photo-editing software (and app) that I recommend.

Download free photos and videos from Canva that you can use on your website, social media, or anyplace else you need beautiful visuals. A free subscription is available, but the paid plan is 100% worth the investment.

There are times when free stock photos simply won't do. Whether they're overused or you just can't find exactly what you're looking for, sometimes a paid stock photo is worth every cent. That's when I turn to Adobe Stock.
