Digital Marketing


Ensemble E-zine

With enough cell phones to populate the world and an average of 24 electronic gadgets per household, online activity continues to increase exponentially. And savvy travelers are serious about researching destinations and deals online. Our digital “turnkey” and “do-it-yourself” tools are designed to inspire travel, stimulate leads, drive sales, and keep you top-of-mind with your clients. Here’s how:

Ensemble® E-zine

Ensemble® E-zine is a monthly consumer online magazine with destination articles, cruise features, videos, ship reviews, recipes, and special offers. Your agency’s contact information and staff bios can be added seamlessly. Social media integration allows your clients and prospects to pass this along to friends and family – with all roads leading back to your agency.

Ensemble® E-Matrix

Ensemble® E-Matrix – powered by ClientBase – is a dynamic e-marketing program that targets customers using transactional data and other customer segmentation for a variety of Ensemble-created digital promotions. Its convenient interface allows you to easily view campaign results.

Ensemble® Hosted Cruise E-Newsletter

Targeted E-mails

Targeted E-mails include supplier-specific promotional messages and offers that are sent to pre-designated client lists, either automatically through our Ensemble E-Matrix program or manually with easy, do-it-yourself instructions.

Customizable Agency Websites


Ensemble ClientSites

Ensemble® ClientSites provide a sophisticated, easy-to-use consumer website, branded for the individual agency and hosted by Ensemble. Changes are managed via a drag-and-drop interface, while an editor tool allows videos, photographs, maps, and text to be added or deleted with a few simple keystrokes.

Choose from more than 70 design templates to customize your own branded website or build your own design with HTML and CSS coding directly in the editor tool. In fact, our members have already received industry accolades for their award-winning ClientSite designs.

The sites also integrate all social media tools – tools that your agency may already be using or might want to introduce. Blogging features make updating a breeze and the platform supports an unlimited number of blogs within a website; full comment moderation offers open, moderated, or closed conversation.

Most importantly, your site enables your clients to search for thousands of Ensemble exclusive and non-exclusive travel offers, including our Ensemble® Hosted Cruises and Ensemble® Hotel & Resort Collection.
