PositiveSpace has teamed up with Oneglobe Network to create the
PositiveSpace E-marketing Center, which offers online marketing tools to help
travel agencies generate more customer bookings. The PositiveSpace E-marketing
Center can be found at: http://www.morebookings.com/positivespace

“After a year of commission cuts, reduced travel budgets and other
challenges to travel agency businesses, creating greater customer activity is
central to business strategy for 2003,” said Greg Merkley, president of
PositiveSpace.  “The PositiveSpace E-marketing Center delivers the tools and
services agencies need to execute that strategy.”
Member agencies can select from numerous programs, including email
marketing, directory listing services, search engine marketing as well as more
sophisticated offerings such as `out of frame` advertising and `live agent`
services. Tools and services are priced exclusively for members and do not
require additional technology investments nor specialized tech skills.

“PositiveSpace`s mission is to keep travel agents informed so they can
sell and service their clients more effectively,” added Merkley.  “e-Travel
Advisories increases customer loyalty and minimizes agency liability by
informing agents and their clients about international destinations.”
“We are pleased to be associated with PositiveSpace, the most popular
travel industry news service in North America reaching more than 20,000
members,” stated President of e-Travel Technologies Inc., Don Churchill.
“Clearly, in this post 9/11 era, travel intelligence has become a key factor
in restoring traveler confidence. As a value added service our Travel
Advisories have an established history of contributing to the success of
retail travel agencies.”
