Hi Richard, I just have to share…the response to our inclusion in Treasure Chest this fall has really been fan tastic. We definitely surpassed our ROI expectations by closing a good bit of business and are actually still getting inquiries off of it. Additionally, we are now marketing to those that expressed interest and are seeing a good return there as well. Now I see w hy/how you “guaranteed results”! We would really like to partner with some of your cruise lines and be the Call To Action on their inser ts. Look forward to the next mailing. Thanks a million!
