PROVIDENCE, R.I. (October 10, 2006) -- Creative Circle Advertising Solutions (CCAS), makers of the innovative adQ: Intelligent classifieds web entry system, is expanding into the Asia Pacific region with the help of marketing partner, Medialive. The two companies signed a partnership agreement this week.
Medialive will help CCAS establish and manage sales and support channels in the Asia Pacific region. Medialive will also provide other services, including market feasibility reports, strategic planning, direct sales to key customers and key account management. Medialive specializes in marketing leading edge technology for the media industry.
"Because adQ is much more effective and user-friendly than other classifieds software, we see amazing potential for our products in the Asia Pacific market," says Bill Ostendorf, CEO of Creative Circle. "Media companies cannot meet the rising demand for simple-to-use advertising tools and online community forums without software such as the products we offer." And he should know. Ostendorf is also president and founder of Creative Circle Media Consulting, one of North America's leading media consulting, design and training firms. Ostendorf has led more than 400 industry seminars in 23 countries and helped more than 100 media companies sharply focus their resources on satisfying their readers and advertisers.
CCAS's leading products include:
adQ: Intelligent classifieds, cutting-edge, content-rich software that helps newspapers, magazines and broadcast outlets generate classified advertising revenue online. adQ's friendly interface helps users write more effective ads, resulting in longer ads, more revenue and more repeat business.
Community Connections, a participatory journalism forum that encourages people to build an online community so they may sign up and share stories, event announcements, photos or blogs, as well as host debates. This user-generated material can then provide inexpensive content for print editions as well.
"I am excited to be representing Creative Circle in the Asia Pacific region," says Reiner Ebenhoch, Medialive's Managing Director. "The Asia Pacific region certainly offers the potential for high growth for CCAS and part of Medialive's charter is to expand CCAS's reach in the region to media corporations who will benefit most from its online products and its deep knowledge of growing audiences and revenue."
