More on Moving to TIMA from the CCRA Media Portal

We’ve consolidated all of the assets of Rich Media Exchange and brought them into TIMA…

Here’s what you need to know about the change, and what new benefits you have to look forward to!

Because the CCRA Media Portal is powered by Rich Media Exchange, it will turn off on September 1.

That means that your access credentials will no longer work unless you convert to a TIMA membership. Don’t worry, you can read everything you need to know about it below or request a personalized consultation to make sure you choose the option that’s right for you!

We’re doing this because Rich Media Exchange is now a sister company of TIMA.

With Rich Media Exchange, the platform powering the portal now a part of the TIMA brand family, it only makes sense for us to give you a path to more comprehensive benefits and support. If you haven’t seen us out there or aren’t familiar with what we offer, then please – scroll on!

About TIMA

The Travel Industry Marketing Association is the first travel industry organization dedicated to, and driven by marketing. We are on a mission to provide the education, tools, and support travel professionals in every segment of the industry need to promote and grow their brands.

What You’ll Get:

There’s a lot of new stuff you’ll get as a member of TIMA. But let’s start with choosing the right door:

Travel Advisors:
Your membership will now include…

  • Access to hundreds of post-ready creative assets for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn. We’ve scripted your posts (you can edit them) and given you some great hashtags to start with.
  • Tons of professional document templates, a complete 12-month sales and marketing calendar designed to help you know what to post about, what you should be preparing for, and when to do it. Think of it like your own interactive marketing plan.
  • 2 Marketing Workshops per month, where together we’ll build things like landing pages, lead magnets, newsletter templates, automations, and more. Not just the info, you’ll watch us build.
  • Exclusive, members-only content, guidance, and discussions. You’ll join us in a private group on Facebook just about travel marketing, and you’ll have a marketing and branding batphone right to us. For whatever you need.

Travel Agencies: Your membership will include all of the above, plus a quarterly coaching call for your team, a group account for up to 6 individuals, and a private file and marketing collateral sharing area within the media exchange!

Need Even More? Check out our incredible Brand Box, which includes your membership and a ton of custom marketing tools just for your travel brand!

 

What Will Change:

The free access and limited content.

With the current portal, you only have access to what CCRA’s supplier partners have uploaded to the system. When you transition to TIMA, you get all of the content in the entire Rich Media database – thousands of additional photos, videos, and marketing assets at your fingertips. And that’s in addition to everything else you get with a TIMA Membership.

(That’s it.)
