You have your business plan already outlined. You just signed all the papers. You are so excited to be starting your own franchise, still not believing what you are getting for under a $10,000 dollar investment.

You are relieved that your solidified investment did not include “give me the cash” and leave you to make it a success all on your own as some startups do. Now, you are excited because school starts tomorrow…Cruise Planners/American Express, CP University Program. This dynamic program is your next step to success.

The Cruise Planners University travels far beyond the original 2008-startup topics that included marketing, advertising, public relations, product updates, technology, group and individual sales, customer care, and web marketing.

You have an undergraduate degree with those courses. Last year, CPU included the MBA and PhD level of courses that teaches how to charter a ship, how to provide mobile marketing, how to maximize group revenue, and today, the most important tool of social media marketing, and you even learn about exotic destinations, which can only add to your offerings to your clients.

We are not stopping there…CPU launched eRez 2.0 web-based booking system on the CP Central Intranet website, so you can research, book, manage, and market better. In addition, the tools are there for members to track client’s birthdays or anniversary information, along with calendar functions, and the ability to research groups for booking cruises.

All of these benefits are to help you be successful in owning your own franchise. Cruise Planners/American Express assists you with your business from the very beginning so your investment proves successful.

When you see awards posted all over the internet in the travel industry websites, you will see Cruise Planners/American Express taking the #1 spot, repeatedly. Ask yourself, how many franchises carry the infamous BRAND such as American Express? We have not even discussed the benefits for traveling, owning your own business, meeting people in the industry, and attending conventions.

Still not stopping…development stages for more mobile marketing tools, passport/visa service and a registry for celebrations, and even an American Express lead generation service and cross marketing tool are all in the works.

Cruise Planners/American Express is exploding so you better light your firecracker and be part of the fireworks of being an educated, well-trained Franchise Owner.
