Fort Lauderdale, FL, October 1, 2013 - RealBiz Media Group, Inc (OTCQB:RBIZ) announced today an agreement with International Cruise & Excursions, Inc. (ICE) for implementation and distribution of a customized membership program targeted at real estate agents and their home owner customers. The program will be branded as the “Home & Away Club”.
The Home & Away Club will be a first of its kind rewards membership platform designed to aid both real estate agents and home owners alike. Club offerings are far reaching as they give members access to all of existing travel product lines including Cruises, Hotels and Resorts, Airfare, and Car Rental. The Club also has a comprehensive lineup of Lifestyle offerings that include Golf, Skiing, Wine Clubs, High End Merchandise, Sports, Concert and Entertainment Tickets, Cosmetics, Spa, and Wellness programs. Notably, all Club products carry a best value guarantee, and savings to the member can be substantial. Additionally, the companies will be working together to expand Club offerings to include new homeowner product lines covering home merchandise and appliances, home renovations, home maintenance services, and various financial and insurance products.
The Home & Away Club introduction is being targeted prior to year’s end. As part of the launch, ICE has agreed to supply trial membership to all RealBiz’s partnered real estate agents/brokers along with $500 travel and lifestyle reward dollars to allow them to become familiar with the significant benefits of this program.
Steve Marques, Chief Revenue Officer of RealBiz stated, “We are very excited by ICE’s commitment to provide our real estate partners with these significant introductory rewards benefits. We believe once agents use the award program, they will quickly grasp the far reaching benefits and how the Home& Away Club can be a new and powerful tool to aid them both in attracting new listings, client retention, and an unparalleled thank you gift. A key aspect of the program is the agent’s ability to earn points at the same time to use themselves or gift additional reward dollars to friends and family. We know that with this program, agents, their clients, and ultimately the homeowner will jointly benefit and be drawn closer together as the real estate industry begins to recover.”
John Rowley, Co-founder and CEO of ICE commented, “The market adoption of RealBiz’s innovative technology and agent-focused service will allow us a new platform to serve participating real estate agents and homeowners alike with this new offering. ICE has been fueled by an unwavering entrepreneurial spirit, innovative products, and a dedication to quality, all of which has allowed us to achieve unprecedented growth and success, which can only be described as extraordinary. Continuing in this vein, we see great opportunity in this relationship with RealBiz to jointly build a valuable new market.”
