CCVADVANTAGE ANNOUNCES NEW MARKETING PROGRAM FOR INDEPENDENT AGENTS

PRINCETON, NJ (October 8, 2010)CCVAdvantage agents have a new weapon in their marketing arsenal for 2011, as the independent agent division of Crown Cruise Vacations announces a matching marketing fund for qualifying agents this week.

With the matching marketing fund, independent travel agents affiliated with the CCVAdvantage program will get the opportunity to grow their marketing budget with matching funds equaling up to 3% of gross revenue from the previous year. Qualified agents can earn thousands of free marketing dollars each year to help extend their reach to prospective customers.

This program is aimed at experienced agents who have established businesses but are looking to take sales to the next level and is designed to supplement the personalized marketing support that all agents currently receive. Agents must meet production targets in order to qualify for the matching marketing funds.

“Over the past year, the CCVAdvantage program has taken steps to give agents the tools necessary to grow their businesses with an enhanced marketing support program,” said Roger Poulard, program director. “With this enhancement, we are proud to help our most experienced agents grow to the next level.”

According to Poulard, this is just one of a series of initiatives designed to help agents make the phone ring in 2011. “We are committed to helping our agents succeed and this program is just the first of many enhancements that CCVAdvantage will be announcing over the next few months,”

The CCVAdvantage program has primarily focused on helping independent agents grow their business, and offer a competitive product to its prospects and clients. CCVAdvantage agents also benefit from a partnership with TripAtlas.com, providing all new agents access to live leads. Agents also have access to special inventory and amenity advantages thanks to Crown Cruise Vacations’ membership within the Ensemble Travel Group. As a result, the independent agent program has grown its user base 50% within the last 12 months.

“Our independent agent program is vital to the growth of our agency,” said Crown Cruise Vacations President Ross Spalding. “We are proud to offer new programs to continue to keep our agents growing and successful.”
