It is important for us as a company to strengthen our 3 prong approach to distributing our card, those being at the retail level, on the Internet via our website, and via our live operator bilingual call center. Our goal is to roll out 10 to 15 quality retail partner stores a month for the remainder of 2008, then accelerate that to 25 stores per month through 2009.
Haskell, NJ (PRWEB) September 23, 2008
Branded Marketing LLC, the card program manager behind the Pr1macard Prepaid MasterCard® line of products, has announced the signing of its 12th retail distribution partner location in Northern New Jersey.
The Pr1macard by 1800Tarjetas.com is made up of a portfolio of 4 financial card products designed specifically for the underbanked or underserved United States Hispanic/Latino market. The name 'tarjetas', meaning "cards" in spanish, is one of the central focuses of Branded Marketing's advertising and promotional strategy, with the firm's toll-free numbers: 1-800-TARJETAS and 1-888-TARJETAS serving as the bilingual call center platform for both new customer acquisition inquiries and current cardholder customer service care and support.
Mark Colyer, Executive Vice President of Business Development for Branded Marketing said, "In 8 short weeks we've been able to prove to our first 12 retail partners that our Pr1macard product is a cost efficient, quality product that will drive more foot traffic into each store and create a real time commission plus residual revenue stream to their bottom lines."
Colyer went on to say, "It is important for us as a company to strengthen our 3 prong approach to distributing our card, those being at the retail level, on the Internet via our website, and via our live operator bilingual call center. Our goal is to roll out 10 to 15 quality retail partner stores a month for the remainder of 2008, then accelerate that to 25 stores per month through 2009."
