Do you just own a domain name for your Hydra business?
Do you own the name but have never had time, or the money or just haven't known how to create a website to go with it?
But you can't tell people your www address (that's the domain name), such as http://www.artemis-hydra.gr because if they tried to view it, they would just see a disappointing 'Failed to open page' on the internet, which wouldn't be good for your business.
Then this advertising service from HydraDirect.com is just for you!
HydraDirect can provide a Domain Landing Page for you enabling you to use your www address to market your business.
Think of it as a mini website (built into your own space in HydraDirect) without the cost and trouble of creating your own website!
The best example I can give you to illustrate how a Domain Landing Page works is to tell you about how I have set up my daughter's internet presence.
My daughter, Harriet Jarman, owns the domain name www.HarrietsHydraHorses.com, which cost her €0.99 (per year) to buy from Dotster the register for .com domain names. It costs anything from 0.99 - 10.00 from any register including .gr .eu, .org, etc.
Harriet supplied the text and images and told me which elements she wanted and I (HydraDirect) provide space on my website to host the content of Harriet's domain name. In other words, I am providing her with a Domain Landing Page. All Harriet had to do was tell the Register the address of her Domain Landing Page. So very simple and easy to setup.
This allows Harriet to print her domain name on her business cards, on her marketing t-shirts, on her booking forms, in magazines, in her email signature block, on her posters, on her Facebook page and on her TripAdvisor review page so that wherever a potential customer sees or hears about www.HarrietsHydraHorses.com, when they visit the www address from whatever source, they always LAND ON HARRIET'S domain landing page in HydraDirect.
So, Harriet can concentrate on building her horse trekking business, taking visitors for rides, looking after the horses, etc. and she handles all her enquiries and bookings.
And I, HydraDirect, look after maintaining her Domain Landing Page, updating it, ensuring it is found on the internet by the search engines, promoting it and making sure it generates business for her.
It works very well for Harriet who has even been busy throughout the winter, with daily bookings coming through her page in HydraDirect and bookings already for this coming summer. And for 2016, we are adding the online payment element so she can accept payment by credit or debit cards via PayPal.
The costs are as follows:
Basic Page includes:
Set up, title, main banner photo, 4 paragraphs of text, photo gallery (8 images), prices, contact name, address & phone numbers & basic email enquiry form, plus search engine optimisation, submission to search engines, announcement on Facebook and a link to your actual advert in HydraDirect:
£50 (incl. VAT), plus advert page cost (from £25 - £350 depending on category).
Additional optional 'elements' on your page cost £10 each, and could include:
This element is a lot more time consuming, hence it being more expensive:
You decide which 'elements' you want. And once setup, you can confidently print your www address on your business cards and marketing literature, knowing that your visitors will find your page, which will be fully optimised so that the search engines can find it too!
You pay for the first year setup and inclusion of elements but for the 2nd and subsequent years you just pay £25 plus the cost of your advert, to maintain your landing page. If you decide to add 'extras' they will be charged as per the above list as a one off cost.
