Company Structure & Compensation
We are a purely commission based company and have no employees, only independent contractors. What sets us apart from other Disney Destination and Universal Orlando Agencies is we work as a team. We train together, meet and travel together as often as we can and we share the burden of the work that is required to make the magic happen. Who is our team?
Carol Beth Scott - Founder/Owner/CEO
Carol Beth is in charge of Marketing, Promotions and vendor relations. Her goal is to help you find ways to build your sales and believe in yourself.
David Scott - Owner/CFO
David handles all commissions, including chasing yours down if need be. He also handles payroll and processes and does the money end of all our dealings with any vendors or promotional outlets.
Charlene Hanyzewski - COO
Charlene is 3D's Daily Operations manager. She handles the application and all major processes on a daily basis. She is the first point of contact for every applicant from application to contract offer & also oversees certification training. She also oversees all group trips and is 3D's agent advocate.
Brady McCain - Our Webmaster
Brady of Go Mylo Web Design cares for the website and email. You will pay him $150.00 directly when you are offered a contract then another $50 upon completion of your 10th booking.
What do the webmaster fees include?
Your initial payment of $150.00 includes creating a new email address, adding you to the agent menu system, adding you to the "Contact" page, adding you to the Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Line, and Authorization forms, and creating a tracking code to help you retain your clients.
Your second payment of $50.00 includes creating your agent page, formatting / enhancing your agent headshot, creating a 'Reviews' page, creating a 'Reviews' module for your agent page, and creating a 'Credentials' module for your agent page.
What is the minimum level of commitment required?
There are two things you're considering as you think about becoming a part of our team. There is your minimum commitment, which is keeping up with correspondence, following through in care for any clients you have and continuing education. A minimum commitment without clientele is going to be 5 to 10 hours a week. Once you have clients the good news is they keep you educated and your Continuing Education becomes something that happens naturally, instead of something you have to go chase down.
Then there is the maximum commitment, which is for the few who want to make a living at this and become a top agent, able to experience future opportunities and break into new brackets of sales. These are the people who will be looking at every training as an opportunity, ever marketing plan as something to be tackled until they have so many generations of clientele they need to scale back their own promotions, lest they get in over their head.
Most of you will fall somewhere in between and the genius of the 3D structure is that everyone can fit into the plan. I would encourage you; however, if the minimum requirement of trainings and communications are more than you can imagine yourself doing, then it's probably best to wait until another season in your life. The agents who stepped forward and out on a limb are being amply rewarded. Ultimately, the choice is up to you.
Why 3D Travel instead of another agency?
Carol-Beth personally founded 3D Travel in 2005 after our family experienced a tragedy and laughed again together for the first time during a trip to Walt Disney World. Since then, our agency has grown organically when we could support the growth, and only then! Our first agents - Amy Pruitt, Kim Deviese, Charlene Hanyzewski & Denise Stufflebeam, along with our webmaster Brady McCain and CFO David Scott, all came aboard at the same time the end of 2007. They're still here! They've helped create and shepherd this company into what it is today. We aren't a team. We're a family. As we've expanded how much we sell, we've used that additional income to create a company that we truly believe is the best out there. We have technological tools available to make your job simple. When Brady sets a new agent up, he provides you with a tracking code that allows you to send any of the thousands of pages on our website and blog, including complimentary quote forms. These codes will have each visitor automatically tracked as YOUR client. Also, we love our agents who sell enough to keep us building this beautiful company, and we provide an annual retreat each year for those agents. In 2016, our top 2 went on a concierge cruise aboard the Disney Dream. In 2017 we're sending the next tiers of agents on a (surprise!) trip in the fall. We also have mentoring and leadership programs to work towards. We KNOW that money isn't what motivates most of us. I knew I wouldn't want to work somewhere where all I had to look forward to was more cash in my account. Not that there is anything wrong with that (it's nice!) but I need more to stay happy. At 3D Travel, we make sure everyone receives more than just commission - so very much more!
I don’t really understand what this job “looks” like. Can you help me understand it better?
To understand, let's look at a booking from beginning to end. 1st, you get a lead (sometimes through us, but usually generated yourself) Then, You send a quote with our standardized quote forms, having used the applicable website or calling in via the recommended travel agent phone line. The consistent process for 3D is Tell/Do/Tell. You always tell the client you're going to do something (in the case of the quote there is an autoresponder saying it will be a maximum of 24 hours - we encourage 2 hours or less - as your first "Tell") then you Do it for the client, then you Tell them you did it. The 2nd Tell also includes sending David Scott the details of your bookings along the way - but only after a deposit has been made on the booking.
After the quote, you follow up and hopefully you will get into discourse with your client about their choices. You may have to do additional quotes as well, to find exactly what they need. Once you help them find the best choices, they apply a deposit through our secure credit card authorization form. You apply the payment. You Tell/Do/Tell the payment and you send David the agency copies. Of course you follow all the security processes you’ve been trained on to keep their information safe and secure. All of their information is dumped from our system weekly.
After that, you begin planning their trip with them - we keep up with park hours, events, dining, refurbishments, ports of call, excursions, etc. We have standardized forms for each step of the process, which you will be fully trained to use.
One of the last emails/forms you send is for final payment. You will follow the same process you did for the deposit.Final papers are also standardized. Commission penalties apply if you don't get your records in on time or fail to care for your client.
Of course, you follow up afterwards with your client.
