New Timeshare Advertising Agency Is Established in Portsmouth, NH -- Timeshares123.com, LLC

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - October 11, 2008) - Timeshares123.com, LLC (www.timeshares123.com), a timeshare advertising agency, has been formed in Portsmouth, NH. The new company is located at 500 Market Street, in Downtown, Portsmouth, NH, right next to the Chamber of Commerce.

The company is the brain-child of a handful of individuals that are established in the field of online marketing, SEO, branding, eCommerce, and website development. Representing the partners of Timeshares123.com is Erik Crago, President and CEO of Port City Web, and acting CEO of Timeshares123.com, LLC. Timeshares123.com currently has its office within Port City Web's corporate headquarters at 500 Market Street, Portsmouth, NH.

Filling a Need

"The partners of Timeshares123.com realized there was (and still is) a need for the sort of functionality that we have put together for people looking to sell or rent their timeshares," noted Erik Crago, acting CEO of Timeshares123.com, LLC. "Our business model, and website, uses technology and self-help tools for people to list timeshares for sale and for rent, thus eliminating the need and cost of a large sales force," noted Crago. "Innovative use of new technology, like automatically sending a text message to a user's cell phone alerting them of an offer on their timeshare listing, in addition to an email, really separates Timeshares123.com from other timeshare advertising and classified websites," noted Crago. "And unlike other timeshare websites that ask you to pay to view listings, or even ask you to fill out a form and they'll get back to you with listings, all of our listings are free and readily available to view anonymously," said Crago.

Resort Advertising Tools

In addition to the self-help tools to list a timeshare for rent or for sale, an advertiser's administration is being developed for resorts to use in advertising on the www.timeshares123.com website. Timeshares123.com is targeting every resort and hotel that offers timeshares for sale or for rent, creating a central directory on the www.timeshares123.com website. The goal is to enable visitors to the www.timeshares123.com website the ability to browse through every place in the world that offers timeshares for sale or for rent. By default, all resorts will have a search engine friendly, basic listing that is derived from public information, such as their address and a brief description. For a small fee, the listing can be enhanced with more pictures and a more complete description. "We see this as an opportunity to help smaller resorts advertise on a larger scale, and larger resorts extend their reach even further," noted Crago.

Investors Welcome

Timeshares123.com is currently in talks with early stage investors as it works to raise funding. While the push is on for significant funding from groups of angel investors or venture capital firms, select individual investors will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
