MailPound Agents' Choice Official Blog

Hello friends!


Well, we just had our first full week of voting!  It is honestly so exciting to see how many of you have already cast your vote.  I actually have the “Who’s Leading” web page bookmarked on my phone.  My curiosity of who’s in the lead is getting the best of me. : -)


This is the first day of our MAC Awards blog.  Here you will be able read all about this exciting summer event, contribute your thoughts and experiences and of course ask questions.  I would like to share with you some information on the MAC Awards.  But first, let me share with you how this all got started… Back in 1999, MailPound was created to assist with the flow of faxes that came through the agency fax machines every morning.  Our mission was and still is to connect you, the travel professional, with the suppliers.  Over the past 10 years, MailPound has evolved to include marketing tools designed to increase your sales with minimal effort.  From customized eBrochures to personalized eFlyers to educational webinars, agents have utilized the free marketing tools to help grow their business.  One feature on MailPound that many of you have contributed to is the MailPound Forum. The forum is a place to ask questions, share experiences and most importantly a place where we can learn from each other.  My goal with this blog is very similar. 


Since this is our first year hosting the Virtual Travel Awards I wanted to take a moment to share with your our vision.  We have 3 major goals in mind with the MailPound Agents’ Choice Awards.  First, we want to hear from you!  Who are your favorites?  Who would you recommend to your clients, friends & family?  Second…Let’s benefit from each other’s experiences.  This will be the ultimate networking event combined with education that can impact your business. What better opportunity to learn from the best?  This summer we will be showcasing many suppliers.  Some you are very familiar with… some you may just be learning about.  In both cases we have top suppliers providing us with the “Insider Tips” that can help you sell their products.  Imagine sitting down with the top Cruise Lines as they share with you “Insider Tips” based on years of experience and knowledge of the ships.  This type of invaluable information can help increase your sales this year.  Our third goal and my personal favorite is to HAVE FUN!  Who says work can’t be fun?  We have fantastic prize sponsors offering you everything from gift cards to incredible trips.  All for participating in the Summer Event of the Year!


Don’t sit back and let summer pass you by.  I invite you to dive in and join us for the first Annual MailPound Agents’ Choice Awards!
