Can you give new life to old Marketing Materials?

New Management looking to capture their excitement in 2-Page Sales Document

Can you make it hip and exciting for advertising agencies?

TravelGuidesFree.com works with over 110 tourism boards to distribute travel brochures to people who are planning trips to various destinations. Our core offering is that we provide leads to Tourism Boards at the rate of $.99 per lead. For consumers, we give them one site that they can go to for ALL destinations, rather than going to tens or hundreds of different websites. We consistently provide:
1)highest quality of leads (we verify all mailing addresses before sending them out as leads)
2)quantity (we collect more leads than other sites)
3)breadth and depth of offering (we have over 110 destinations covered).

We are also adding new products including: email inclusions, social media blasts, Destination Spotlights, Travel Deals on a Cost Per Click basis and retargeted banner ads.

The point of this marketing material is to make tourism boards want to sign up for our lead generation program and tease them with our other products.

You'll see most of the old material attached to this project listing. We want to Remove any reference to caps on contracts. We also charge $.99 / lead whether its a downloaded ebook or a tourism guide shipped in the mail.

We're in the midst of redesigning the site so there may be additional need to improve on or revised these materials later.


Our buyers fall into two categories, the first are hip youngsters that are getting their first shot at doing media plans at small advertising agencies. The second group are local tourism professionals who have seen it all and are now running the local tourism board's marketing. They don't trust easily. We should aim for the first but not be so tragically hip that we don't appeal to the latter audience.

This material must cover a few things:
1)how the system works including a screenshot. I think the old version does well at this.
2)illustrate the size of our audience in an attractive fashion
3)illustrate the demographics of our site in an attractive fashion.
4)include a testimonial (or many) from a current customer.

Benefits to the consumer include:
*Quality of Leads (ours our verfied)
*Quantity of Leads (we're the leader)
*We attract an audience of early stage travel planners. (people who haven't selected a destination)
*No set up costs
*Only pay when someone requests your brochure
*3 month follow up emails we send out help illustrate ROI on campaigns.
*We offer both printed guides and eBooks for download.

We'd like to distill this down to 1 page but we may have to drag it out to 2.

    Hello guys,

    I appreciate all the hard work on this. We'll be deliberating for the rest of the day on this. I have assumed that we can receive editable files at the end of the contest so that we can change screenshots or text if the need arises over the next year. Is that correct? If so, what format can you provide to us? Photoshop? Quark? Powerpoint?

    Thanks again. More in a little bit.

    Hello, Thank you guys for really nice progress on these designs. We re getting closer.

    I need to get you updated testimonials and screenshots. The screenshots that I provided were a little old and dont really reflect the pages of travelguidesfree.com at present. If you can update the screenshots with the appropriate pages from TravelGuidesFree.com that would be great. If not, I will send them to you.

    For some of the pie charts it looks like there is one color that is "unassigned". That is probably folks who have selected 'prefer not to say'. I would like to either remove that color from the charts or add Prefer Not to Say next to the unassigned colors.

    Thanks for all your thoughts and ideas, again. I will follow up soon with screenshots and updated testimonials.

    Hello ThanhSugar,

    Thanks so much for the quick response. I appreciate your designs... especially what you have done to spruce up the pie chart graphs.

    I would like to use more soothing colors like Blues and Greens rather than the bright oranges and yellows and red of the current marketing materials. For example, I'd like to get rid of the yellow for the testimonial boxes. Maybe a soft blue would be better.

    We want to look like a "safe" part of the media plan and communicate that in our marketing materials.

    For the same reason I like the green background boxes better than the ones with yellow or red backgrounds.

    Hope this helps! Thanks again for your contributions. I hope we can see some more from you.
