Come startup nel settore turistico abbiamo seguito il corso Pilot proposto ad un prezzo irrisorio che ci ha dato tantissimi spunti su business model, marketing e comunicazione, tutto in ambiente amichevole ma professionale. Il punto forte sono le persone della community che lavorano e crescono tutte assieme. L'AD Nicola ha una perfetta vision su questo e riesce a comunicarla con energia e passione.

Con il team di Apical e i programmi di formazione che offrono ho imparato nuove skills e soprattutto ho preso consapevolezza di tutti quei settori che compongono il lavoro della mia agenzia. Grazie a questa consapevolezza ho deciso di affidare loro la parte marketing e non vedo l'ora di iniziare il lavoro di squadra. Grazie Apical!

Consiglio Apical a chi è del settore travel già da anni e ovviamente a chi è nuovo, ha in mente un'idea e vuole metterla in pratica! Il percorso Pilot ti permette in tempi brevi di imparare nuovi strumenti digitali, di conoscere creators con cui collaborare e di aver sempre qualcuno al tuo fianco!

Apical ha ideato uno straordinario percorso di accelerazione dei progetti travel, chiamato "Pilot". Non oso immaginare quante volte sarei andato a sbattere contro un muro se non avessi seguito questo percorso per elaborare i miei prodotti! Lo consiglio caldamente a tutti i Creators.

The right time is always now! 😉 Many people approach things with enormous care and precision preferring to plan every detail before launching. On the surface, this behavior is perfect, but it hides 2 problems that paradoxically benefit the jumper.

1. Planning allows us to predict only what we already know, in reality the vast majority of the problems and decisions to be faced are invisible at the beginning of a project and only become apparent when we take the first steps.. So as counterintuitive as it may be, those who leave at random plan better than those who wait, accumulate fewer delays, predict the future better–curious

2. Until an idea/project/proposal remains locked in my head or at best in my team’s head… it is pure fantasy

There’s only one thing that can allow me to really understand what I’m doing, in marketing it’s calledreflex analysis, and it’s a fundamental step–essential step–that needs to be anticipated as much as possible.

Both. More and more companies are relying on our programs to train their teams. The Pilot has an advantage over any training course: it is practical and empowering. A company that, for example, is thinking of launching a new product, opening a new market, and learning how to communicate and sell in digital can enroll the people on its team to do so. People will participate in the program by bringing their own project, and together we will help them grow. The result will be great both for the company’s goals and for the maturation of the people involved who will feel part of the project and responsible for the results

1 hour, maximum 1.5 hours per day is more than enough time to follow the program at its best. The Pilot is structured to allow even those with other jobs to be able to follow everything smoothly. We hold our weekly meetings at 6:30 p.m. and offer assistance at any time of the day. Clearly those who can devote more time will benefit more, but we want to make sure that everyone, even those who have to manage a thousand things, can be successful with us

Yes, the Pilot Program is very often chosen by those who are going through the drudgery of a project without the support of a team. Those who tackle the program solo find it very useful to be able to share their journey with other projects and to use the Apical method as a guide so as not to get lost. Clearly, a team will be easier to accomplish tasks, but we want to make sure that even those on their own* can cope with everything to the best of their ability. The Pilot is also a very convenient way to find people to collaborate with and build a team over time

Yes, no problem. You can participate in the program and you can also sell online through us. We will use Withholding Taxes to transfer your income to you, up to the annual ceiling

The Pilot lasts 6 months in all during which you have all our services guaranteed: Passport, Apical.Cloud, Technical/Administrative Direction, Community and Events. At the end you can decide to continue on your own* or stay with us and continue to use the same services in exchange for a subscription of €100/month.
