LONGITUDE 64 OLIVIER BAELDE by Editor “Longitude 64 - The Yachting Network” A new approach to yacht brokerage and yacht charter marketing: integration with social networks W elcome to the Longitude 64 monthly magazine. The pri- mary purpose of this maga- zine is to present yachts for brokerage and yachts for charter from clients using our yachting solutions. In order to provide them with a competitive advantage, we decided to integrate our online platform called The Yacht- ing Network with the Adobe inDesign workflow. The end result being that all the listings from clients using our online yachting solutions are as well included in our monthly magazines. It brings them maximum exposure as well as brand recognition.
