CarolinaCoastActivities.com is an activity based web site designed to put the “what to do along the Carolina Coast”, and now the Savannah area, into one well organized and comprehensive source. The design of the site has been modeled after our highly successful sister site, www.ColoradoMountainActivities.com, which started in Breckenridge, Colorado over ten years ago and by using the same team of web developers, we can be certain that they know our strategy and our goals to help provide your business greater internet exposure.
We are not a Pay-Per-Click oriented site. With a set annual fee, advertisers can rest easy knowing that there is no limit to the number of click-thrus their business can receive during their campaign. Compared to other forms of internet advertising this can equate to a substantial savings over the common average tourism PPC cost of .83 cents per click. Our goal is to generate your business web traffic at .21 cents per click or less, much less. As you can see on the following page, many of our advertisers are experiencing click thrus to their site for less than .10 cents per click.
What a listing on CarolinaCoastActivities.com includes:
· Placement within the “Area” most pertinent to your business includes all towns within that area
· Your ad listing will be placed in all categories relevant to your business, further increasing your exposure within the site.
· Renew your ad based on previous year performance!
Guests to the area will see your logo/photos, descriptions and most importantly a direct link to your website!
