An ideal side-hustle, Little Emperors gives well-connected individuals the tools, tech and training to make money from luxury hotel bookings. Olivia Palamountain reports
Little Emperors is launching an Independent Travel Consultant (ITC) programme called MyLER, which will enable savvy travel lovers to utilise their own network to build a travel business. (Every booking earns them commission.)
Part of the private members’ luxury hotel app wider mission to reimagine and modernise the role of the travel agent, Little Emperors has developed a technology that enables their ITCs/MyLERs to access their knowledge and travel perks more easily and efficiently than any other ITC programme.
Little Emperors says that the MyLER program is ideal for those with a passion for travel looking for the perfect “side hustle”.Successful users include a hairdresser with high-net-worth clients, a travel journalist and a stay-at-home mum who makes most of her bookings in the playground while picking up her kids from school.
Almost all of the historic difficulties and administrative burdens of being an ITC have been removed by the innovative technology the LE team have created and input to their app.
A MyLER would receive a personal login providing access to both the Little Emperors’ app and web booking system, meaning that whether they are at their desk or on the go, MyLERs can search hotel availability and book on behalf of their clients within seconds.
Through this, MyLERs can remain secure in the knowledge that they are delivering the best value and benefits to their network whilst also growing their own travel business on the go.
Rebecca Masri, CEO and Founder of Little Emperors says: “Our program is the first of its kind, allowing our MyLERs to create and build their own network with our full support. Our concept of ITCs has been built on the idea that our MyLERs can use this as a side hustle, so we have ensured that it is as accessible and manageable for those from all walks of life.”
A key point of differentiation for the Little Emperors MyLER program is that whilst there is extensive training, the requirements are a lot more accessible than many other programs.
The focus is on how to best use the system to book and pay on behalf of a client, how to market yourself as a MyLER and the various conferences, trips and virtual training tools available to familiarise with the partner hotels – all of which is provided by the Little Emperors team in the MyLER onboarding programme.
LE also offers the opportunity for the MyLERs to immerse in the travel industry through the attendance at events and conferences to ensure they’re ahead of the trends.
