Why Is It So Effective?

The Right Audience

OTC is designed for travel agents and travel partners. Unlike the online consumer, travel partners are focused on marketing and selling your products. They remain a vital link in the travel distribution chain. OTC creates an audience of travel agents, and a powerful advertising medium within the agent desktop business workspace.

The Right Time

OTC ensures your brand and product(s) are delivered and visible at the finger tips of travel agents and travel partners when it matters most. Your advertisements and offers are presented to your travel partners in the context of their daily business activities - the marketing and selling of travel.

The Right Location

Everybody knows the three rules of selling are...location, location, location. OTC is the ultimate advertising location and context medium. It delivers your brand and product(s) to users who want your product(s) with unparalleled effectiveness. Our advertising programs enable placement of relevant tasks and functional content, thus, providing a valuable opportunity to deliver timely and relevant messagse that will bring both immediate action potential, as well as long term product message and brand value reinforcement.

Provides Long Term Value and Builds Travel Partner Goodwill

You’ll get more for your investment by sponsoring OTC. Not only are you present in the most effective and innovative advertising medium available in travel, you are building long lasting brand value by providing your travel partners with business tools that they value. Unlike a fleeting story or article, you have equipped your travel partners with technology that will help them market and sell your product(s) better. It’s a win-win!

More Value for Less Money

OTC advertising is more effective than either traditional print or online web marketing. OTC advertisements have long and lasting impression times, are present all day long and are context relevant. The average advertisement view time in a print publication is less than 60 seconds per publication period. In the case of online advertisements, user frequency is unpredictable and fleeting, and in many instances has little or no context relevance. OTC offers it all – durable ad presence, long impression exposure time, and total context relevance. What’s the proof? Common sense. Users are online all day long conducting business inside OTC.

 

How to Participate / Program Opportunities

Co-Branded Sponsorships

Up to only three (3) application sponsorships are available. They include run of site (ROS) ad presence and print media co-branding. Only one sponsor per industry segment will be permitted.
