Take Customer Relationships To The Next Level With GolfTEC Travel!
The world of business is a funny thing. It’s often said – and we’ve written on the subject as well – that to create a truly genuine, loyal customer, a brand has to create a relationship that enhances shared values and a common understanding of its higher purpose.
So, when it comes to the world of golf and the amazing passion people share surrounding the game – outside of creating personalized, participation-driving experiences in the experiential marketing realm that maintain a connection long after the event – what better way to create this type of customer than taking an incredible golf trip together?
This month we’re revisiting the three main experiences GolfTEC Events’ division of GolfTEC Travel facilitates – Compete, Watch and Experience trips – and why our inspiring golf excursions also serve as an ideal breeding ground to foster relationship-building with customers.
A Natural Connection
Think about it: Your client, Bob, loves golf. You love golf. You know Bob on a business level and perhaps casually through varied social interactions or a round of golf here and there, but could you picture how attending the Masters or experiencing Pebble Beach – enjoying once-in-a-lifetime experiences together – would take that business relationship to the next level?
This is what we do with GolfTEC Travel: Offer incredible, bucket-list golf trips that leave lasting memories for years to come, all the while staying true to the foundation of GolfTEC as an added element – proven instruction that has made us the world’s leader in helping people play better golf. The culmination of these ingredients together results in an atmosphere that’s the perfect facilitator to help foster relationship-building at its finest.
GolfTEC Travel trips are, well, in a word: INCREDIBLE.
We take the platform of an already-memorable golf experience – whether that’s a competitively-driven event, destination trip to the world’s greatest golf pilgrimages, or must-attend sporting event like the Masters (or non-golf events like the Kentucky Derby and Indy 500) – and raise the bar to allow guests full immersion into the experience to showcase its best elements, period. In other words, we handle the details from A to Z, so all you have to focus on is enjoyment and taking it all in.
For example, with our Pebble Beach, Scotland, and Masters experiences, we do all of the pre-planning and booking arrangements as far as hotel, where and when to play, the best places to eat, transportation, local attractions – and the list goes on – so that from the time you land until the time you depart, you are assured each detail of your trip has been given intricate attention, so that the only thing you have to “worry” about is your 10-footer for birdie on No. 18, or what holes to camp out on watching the world’s best players compete.
Oh, and how this relates to that client of yours, Bob?
Ancient Bonding Secret
An old proverb says, “…if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others.”
We think this reigns true in the world of business, and we certainly agree in the case of relationship-building with GolfTEC Travel trips.
No matter the type of GolfTEC Travel trip, it’s all about the experience and spending time with like-minded individuals. Our job is to set the scene without worry or complication, and our clients’ job is to fully enjoy the experience and focus on enhancing those bonds through positive, lifelong memories.
Here are just a few testimonies to illustrate how memorable GolfTEC Travel experiences are:
Just a quick note to tell you the trip was great. We had so much fun and took over 800 pictures. I will send some pics soon. – Mark
Just a brief note to empress my thanks and appreciation for the courtesies you extended to our group and me personally during our Scotland Golfing extravaganza. You guys were there for us every time and every arrangement exceeded my expectations. While the golf was memorable, the trip was more relaxing knowing that everything was taken care and that I didn’t have to worry about a thing, other than show up on time. – Tony
Had a great trip, golf was such a great experience; accommodations travel etc. everything was well done! – Nat
Thanks for letting me know the clubs have arrived. The Old Course was great. We had an awesome time even though neither of us played that well. I played better each day, with my best round being 83 at Kingsbarns. That is an amazing course for the views. Overall a great trip. Thanks for helping me get it set up. – Bob
So, now that we know just how GolfTEC Travel can enhance shared values and a common understanding of the brand’s higher purpose – the cornerstone of creating genuine, loyal customers – just one question remains: Are you ready to take that relationship with Bob to the next level?
