Web Site Promotion

In the era of information overload, how is your web site going to be discovered? If it's not found, it might as well not exist. All your hard work and money are wasted. Every day millions of people use search engines to find products and services. As of October 17,2006 the US Census Bureau claims that there are 300 MILLION people living in the United States. This is an average of 6 MILLION per state. The statement although true does not present the true picture, in California there are 36 MILLION people, 1/8 or 12% of the whole United States. Los Angeles is the second largest city in the United States with 18 MILLION residents.

By comparison there are only 2.4 MILLION people in Nevada of which 1.6 MILLION live in the greater metropolitan area of Las Vegas, which is one of the fastest growing citys in America. It is the 29th largest city in the United States and was not incorporated until 1905.

Now I am talking about Dollars as in BILLIONS. Americans spent $143 BILLION dollars last year on line, of that $61 BILLION was for travel. If California is 12% of the population than you know because of its high pay scale and real estate prices it has to be over 12% of the dollars spent. That translates to over $8 BILLION dollars being spent on travel within 400 miles of Lake Tahoe.

In our tourist-oriented economy, we have a better than average chance that the decision to purchase will be made while visiting web sites listed by these search engines. Thanks to the Airline industry, and companies like Cheaptickets,Orbitz, Expedia, and Travelocity, the internet and search engines are an accepted way of doing business.

This means that many decisions for a ski vacation, golf trip, business meeting, or wedding are made before the visitor even leaves his home town.

Think of all the travel agents in the UK that are selling their customers ski vacations that haven't even been to your town, or don't even ski! Where would you guess they're getting their information?

By the way, the same web sites that are selling those discounted airline tickets are also selling hotel rooms, motel rooms, vacation rentals, and rental cars. Since the biggest and most utilized search engines are bid on by these advertisers, you can imagine how high the bids get for the airline ticket and accommodations industries.

We have a way to get you around these high costs that is still very effective. We have created several web sites that are able to keep your goods or services in front of the buying public, via banners and links. We are willing to rent you the entire web site by the month, or create a shared web site with 2 to 3 other businesses, depending on your marketing budget.

These web sites are much less per month than a telephone book ad, and we can take your business to the world, not just the service area of your telephone book. These web sites market 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, as long as the search engines are paid.
