The ARDA 2010 Convention and Exposition is fast approaching (going from March 14-18th) and we’re getting excited to show off our product to everyone in the timeshare industry. With a great lineup of speakers and presenters at ARDA, the Whitecap team will be hoping to contribute as well. We’ll be around the conference floor talking about our efficient and affordable timeshare tour generation solution.
We currently are running a 30 day free trial and want to give any resort the opportunity to generate some tours for their mini-vac program, no risk and no hassles. First we’ll set up your resort’s package promotion page on Vacation-Offer.com: including the package price, dates, info, terms and conditions, pictures, amenities and more. Then we’ll do what we do best, marketing, to drive qualified tours to that page so that they can get in contact with your booking specialists. We’re confident that after the 30 day free trial it will be worth your while to continue with the service. If you don’t want to, there’s no loss to you.
Whether or not you’re going to Vegas for ARDA 2010, be sure to contact us if you’re interested in participating in the trial. We’d be glad to set up a meeting to let you know how we can help your resort sell timeshares.

If you are a fan of the travel channel or any destination related TV programming, you should check out RCI TV. RCI TV is a new online video service that was just launched by RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange. The company’s new web TV platform allows anybody interested in owning timeshare to check out videos of many of RCI’s resort partner destinations around the world.
These videos aren’t your standard old-school timeshare marketing materials. RCI’s cutting-edge timeshare video network allows viewers to select from various categories of resort videos, including beach, casino, city and spa. When a viewer has selected a desired video they can then view a wide screen, high quality and informative video that details a resort’s various amenities, rooms, as well as local hot spots.
RCI TV even has it’s own travel host – “Dan, The RCI Guy,” who can help guide visitors through the many benefits of vacation ownership. This online TV network is a great move by RCI to reach out to a younger generation of web-savvy potential timeshare owners. This generation works and plays online, and is more than familiar with online video viewing through sites like YouTube and Hulu. RCI TV is a great addition to the world on online video and is sure to only get better as RCI add more resort destinations to their content roster.
