W elcome to the Yachting.vg monthly magazine. The pri- mary purpose of this magazine is to present yachts for brokerage and yachts for charter from clients using our yachting solutions. In order to provide them with a com- petitive advantage, we decided to integrate our online plat- form called The Yachting Network with the Adobe inDe- sign 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. We believe that there is still a need for a printed version to allow readers to be able to read offline while traveling for example. Furthermore, it allows our clients to reach potential buyers who are not always willing to stay a long time in front of a computer screen in order to review luxury yachts for sale or charter. A printed version still has its charm and provides added value to our clients. The Yachting Network has local websites in all eu- ropean countries.10 www.sunseeker-yachtclub.com - june 2011

W hile having a social network pres- ence through Facebook, Twitter and other social networks proves mandatory nowadays, a new concept tested by our yachting solutions is to benefit from Facebook groups and so- cial activity by bringing back “friends and followers“ to the company’s website in order to propose targeted services and features pertaining to your business activity. On Facebook for example, the new graph API allows to post update statuses about listings, upload images in al- bums , post events in calendar.. As well, you can use the facebook user authentication to login into your site and read or contribute to your content. The advantage is that you can at the same time know more about this person and propose a subscription to your newsletter. When heBy Olivier Baelde - www.latitude26.ch connects to your site with his facebook’s user id , you willdeveloping advanced social marketing featuresin yachting and real estate solutions BREAKING NEW GROUND WITH SOCIAL be able then to send messages di- rectly through the facebook graph API. It will allow you to keep this user informed about your compa- ny activities automatically through your website. It provides an extra level of possibilities since you no longer need a user to subscribe to your newsletter. While you man- age your own facebook groups , you can post automatically news to the groups and invite all new friends automatically to join the groups through the APIs. By carefully planning a number of facebook groups centered around your company’s activities (broker- age, charter), you can dramatically enhance the daily communication sent to the facebook groups by postings automatically random yacht listings, special offers, price reductions....

The important point in this social network integration with your website is to keep the channels open and regularly communicate to provide new information and news. Readers will be more likely to visit your site on a regular basis if they get weekly news from your site.
