Linkedin Post - Monetize your existing traffic and brand loyalty

September 12th 2016

Comencia provide customized Travel Sites to enable individuals, organizations or Business to book hotels and earn commission. We provide our service free of charge as well as paying the site owner a rebate on each hotel booking. Our model is to leverage existing brands and loyal customer bases to create travel bookings. When broken down, the hotel business follows an unusual model – each company is selling the exact same product. Obtaining traffic and maximizing its conversion is the key to success. Large travel organizations have invested heavily making buying traffic through search engines no longer a realistic option. The hotels themselves are aware of the value of their brands and are exercising control over bidding on chains and hotel names to generate direct business. Rather than trying to generate traffic to Comencia as a brand, our model is to identify existing traffic on sites with loyal customer bases as opportunities for cross selling travel. Our self-signup and interactive configuration interface allows partners to create and deploy a branded travel site in minutes. Unlike other providers we offer a true white label service ensuring that our partners monetize their loyal customer base without losing customers to the technology provider.

All this while being able to share, like, and post comments. Enter tournaments, interact with other players and chat with fans. Watch live streaming from right within the app when made available by the director. If you can’t be there in person, it’s the next best thing!

Available now on both the Apple iPhone through the iTunes store, as well on Android via the Google Play store, it is a free download.

Now Event Directors can use the app to send messages to event participants. Receive notifications in case a game time changes and other important information from the director.
