I received a phone call yesterday from one of the two District Managers. He said he has been on a lot of these trips, to a lot of great places (i.e. Pebble Beach) and this by far was the best trip he and his wife have ever been on. He said they were blown away by the restaurants, the gifts, the planning that went into everything.
Money's a Payment.
Travel's a Reward!
Exhaustive research taken from eight-year-olds to eighty-year-olds proves it: people like vacations. They especially like big trips where they’re treated like VIPs.
In truth, actual research from places like the SITE foundation, among others, shows that incentives, especially travel, are great motivators. Meeting sales quotas, winning clients, and rewarding key players are all easy to do with an experience-rich sports trip. Even people who think they don’t like sports find they have a new interest once they experience an Esoteric Sports trip.
Checks Aren't Postcard-Worthy
People actually appreciate travel over a mere check. Think about it. What sounds better in Mark Goodsen’s voice on The Price Is Right? “You get $4000.” or “You’ve just won an all-expense-paid trip to the Kentucky Derby!” Money’s great, but people jump up and down for travel.
Incentive travel is fun, memorable, and unique. More importantly, it works.
