MANCHESTER, U.K. (August 5, 2014) — The Timeshare Association (Timeshare Owners and Committees), TATOC, has announced the successful affiliation of U.S.-based organisation, BuyaTimeshare.com, an internet advertising and marketing company for owners who wish to sell or rent timeshare by-owner.
A privately held business created by current president and CEO, Wesley Kogelman, the company was launched in Tampa, Florida in 2000. Today, the business still has an office in Tampa in addition to its corporate headquarters in Merrimack, New Hampshire.
BuyaTimeshare.com has built its reputation on search engine optimisation, creating a website that appears on page 1 for various search terms on search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo and other major outlets.
Its online marketing efforts are geared toward finding buyers by leveraging the power of online search for the benefit of customers.
Explaining their decision to affiliate with TATOC, Wesley Kogelman said: “We believe that there is a huge need for U.K. and European owners access to a global online marketplace such as ours. We maintain a substantial presence on the internet and because our global village is shrinking, we felt it was time to become more involved across the pond.
“With TATOC’s reputation as the leading timeshare owners association in Europe and the great work Harry Taylor and the TATOC team have done in educating owners, it was an obvious choice to become a TATOC affiliate. Opening discussions with TATOC was the first move we made when researching our options and we are very pleased that the TATOC board has accepted our application.”
Harry Taylor, TATOC’s executive chairman added: “This is a great opportunity for timeshare owners to leverage the online marketing skills of a successful and fast growing company. BuyaTimeshare.com appears on page 1 for timeshare related search terms on Google, providing the platform buyers and renters will find when researching their options.”
As affiliates of TATOC, Buyatimeshare will adhere to the TATOC Code of Conduct issued in August 2011 and the association’s code of ethics. All companies wishing to affiliate to TATOC are thoroughly vetted beforehand and continually monitored. Further details of the code of conduct can be found on the Association’s website (www.tatoc.co.uk).
The Timeshare Association (Timeshare Owners and Committees), known as TATOC, was formed in 1989 and is the only elected consumer association representing the interests of timeshare owners in Europe.
Launched five years ago, TATOC affiliation was developed to provide a directory of suppliers of services such as marketing, exchange and re-sale to the timeshare industry in Europe.
TATOC member resorts looking to purchase such services for their own operations and to recommend to their members can work with these businesses safe in the knowledge they are regularly assessed to ensure the highest levels of customer service.
Today there are over 30 affiliated companies offering high quality, customer-focused products and services to the timeshare industry. TATOC affiliation has given these companies the edge when competing with other non-affiliated businesses.
