Affiliate Connection Site Buzzing Before Rollout

LCT Staff
Posted on February 19, 2016

We’ve all seen the pleas among operators on Facebook for an affiliate in a far-flung location who can take a farm-out client. While that can work, you are at the mercy of whoever’s online and what they choose to tell you before taking your business and handling your precious cargo.

Into this breach steps LCTconnect.com, an online venue with established criteria and information that operators worldwide can use to find each other. Think Match.com meets Tinder, except with a lot more substance. LCTconnect.com is the industry’s first ever widely available forum that brings together legal, vetted, high quality chauffeured transportation companies for instant affiliation.

Since its soft launch two weeks ago, the buzz has been growing. As of Feb. 19, the site had 225 active accounts, with more than 10% opting for the platinum level membership. First time members may use the site for free for two months.

The hard launch happens Feb. 29-March 2 at the LCT exhibit booth next to the entrance of the trade show floor of the International LCT Show at the Mandalay Bay convention center in Las Vegas.

Beyond the required profile, subscribers choose how much additional information to provide. The more you can disclose and the more details you post, the more likely another company will want to do business with yours. Users can search based on attributes and criteria.

LCTconnect.com focuses on factors operators value most, and achieves a depth beyond the superficial contracting of transportation network companies (TNCs). Most importantly, you are in control and you have the freedom of choice among companies you prefer to work with, instead of having to call a major affiliate network at the last minute and handle business via a credit card and a high mark-up.

FYI: LCT will include a step-by-step users guide to LCTconnect.com in the March issue, available at the LCT booth and in the exhibit hall during the Show.
