Jurni Network Introduces Web Site Product Suite for Agents; Jurni Online Drives New Revenue Source for Members

Jurni Network today introduced Jurni Online, a new Web site product suite that allows Jurni agent members to create and maintain professional-looking consumer sites that feature their individual agency brands and great vacation offers for their existing and potential customers.

Jurni Online enables member agencies to develop a customizable leisure travel marketing site with special promotions and content from Jurni preferred suppliers consistently updated by Jurni Network. The tool gives Jurni agencies the ability to customize their Web sites with multiple design layouts, custom logos, color and font choices, additional pages and special offers. Daily, monthly and annual online reports can be generated for page hits, sessions, and visitor and referral information.

In the Jurni Online product suite optional upgrades will allow agents to create a site that also includes air, car and hotel booking capabilities through the incorporation of a Sabre booking engine or other booking engine of their choice. These upgrades will also allow agents to add their own content and special promotions, in addition to Jurni preferred suppliers’ latest vacation offers.

“Offering customers an information-rich Internet site is a critical component of the successful agency’s marketing, sales and customer service programs,” said Mike Baldwin, general manager of Jurni Network. “The Jurni Online product suite is a new enhancement to the marketing and revenue building capabilities Jurni offers our members.”

Jurni Online was developed in partnership with Passport Online, and is a private labeled version of Passport Online’s NexCite Web site program. Agencies will license Jurni Online from Jurni Network for a monthly fee. Phone and Web-based training on the use of the tools is provided. The sites can be marketed through e-mail promotions. Search engine optimization is also used to encourage customer site use. The sites will feature content that includes a quick search box, customized travel specials, and the opportunity to include a sweepstakes or register for an agency newsletter so member agencies can acquire names and addresses for their databases.

A Website option for hosted independent agents will be added to the Jurni Online product suite in late summer. Independent agents will be able to create and maintain their own online marketing site that features fresh and relevant content for their existing and prospective customers.
