Increasing sales in a travel agency are never been easy until the era of social media marketing. Every business wants to sell more but they often forgot their income highly depend on the level marketing strategies and quality of services they provide.
In today`s world, most travel companies are crushing it with social media alone while others depend on Newspaper, the passer by and another traditional form of marketing to make just a few sales.
I have taken the time to analyze which social media network works best for travel agencies and has the biggest influence on travelers. Am here to give you my Top 5 social media network I think is best for Dubai travel agencies and tourism companies in UAE.
Facebook has over 1.5 Billion active users, which means virtually everyone is on this platform.
Over 95% of UAE residents are on Social media and mainly Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter.
This makes it a powerful tool to reach the most audience in this region.
Facebook gives you the access to create a mini website known as “Fan Page” that allows you to post contents and connect with people who show interest in your products or services.
The key feature of this platform is the ability to engage with your audience, which makes it one of the most powerful marketing tools for you to succeed as a travel agent.
On this social network, you can post captivating content, chat, post killer travel photographs, video of trips, offers and respond to feedback from your customers.

Twitter is a loud social media with over 500 million users. It is great for posting short stories or news know as “tweets.” It is commonly used for microblogging and if users show interest in your content they show the expression by Retweeting the post.

Instagram is similar and next to Facebook with over 700 Million active users.
I see Instagram as another social media network for travel agencies to share some trip videos, travel offers, tourism pictures.
