What you can expect:
- SFBC Newsfeed and Profile Page: when marketing, it's critical that you continually reach out to your audience with new information on your product or service. Twice each month we'll hound you for photos, videos, and reports about events at your operation. This information will be posted on our home page in the Newsfeed, posted to your Profile Page, posted in our forum, and posted to ours (and your) social media accounts.
- Leaderboard ads: these banners are front and centre in those areas of our site most relevant to your business. We'll work with you to develop a new graphic each month in order to keep your messaging fresh. We'll track click-through counts to determine the most effective type of messaging, and work with you to determine the appropriate landing pages for those ads.
- Text and Graphic Ads: frequently the first stop for SFBC visitors searching for product information, our Fishing Adventures and Fishing Products pages will carry graphic and text introducing them to your business. Here again we'll track and adjust your messaging as with your leaderboard ads.
In the end, it's all about refreshing your messaging on an ongoing basis in order to attract the attention, interest, and business of those thousands of folks visiting SportfishingBC.com every day, week and month of the year. Running your business takes all your time. We'd like to spend ours bringing folks to your door.
The SportfishingBC.com Newsfeed
A powerful new way for you to speak to our visitors
Each day over 3000 unique visitors access our site. In 2014, this will translate to over 11 million page views.
To date, our advertisers have had to rely on their ads being effective enough to entice this traffic to visit their sites. While this traditional advertising remains effective, we now offer another tool that enables them to speak to our visitors as often as they wish, directly from our home page.
SportFishingBC.com continues to enjoy primary placement on Google and every other major search engine. Our site appears front and center of any search for information regarding angling in British Columbia.
Effectively, our newsfeed represents our redesigned home page. Through it, you'll be able to post stories, graphics and/or videos on events at your lodge, special rates for your product, new product launches, exceptional or unusual catches and every other newsworthy item in your business.
What does this mean to you? Your business will now enjoy prime position on the home page of the most heavily-trafficked B.C. sportfishing site on the internet.
What else? Each of your posts in our newsfeed will link directly to your own Profile page. See an example Profile page here. Here all your posts will be listed and archived. As well, you'll have ample room to describe your business, a link to your website, your own photo and video gallery and a big box ad space. All these features........just one click away from our home page.
How do I use the newsfeed?
As an advertiser, you'll be provided your own secure access to that area of our site that hosts your profile page and enables you to post your updates as often as you wish. Initially, we'll assist you with this process while training you on the easy steps required to use the system.
