ADVERTISING ON BESTWALKS
Do you attract walkers to your accommodation? If not, would you like to? If so, would you like to attract more? In either case Bestwalks can help
Bestwalks is the most comprehensive resource on the internet for books on walking throughout the UK and visitor numbers are growing at a steady rate - currently around 1,000 visitors [20,000 hits] per DAY. What started as a small site to promote my own books on walking has grown into something much more. In particular it offers various other walking related information including a 'PLACES TO STAY' guide comprising hotels, bed and breakfast, self-catering and other accommodation specifically aimed at walkers looking to stay in the most popular walking areas.
If you have not already done so, please visit the home page by clicking on this link www.bestwalks.com to obtain an overview of the site. Here you will see on the right hand side a panel devoted to ACCOMMODATION. Click on the link for Hotels - B and B - Self Catering -Camping to obtain the menu page from where you can select the location and type of accommodation required. There is also a direct link from individual county/area books pages to the corresponding accommodation page, e.g. www.bestwalks.com/dartmoorbooks.htm has a link to www.bestwalks.com/staydartmoor_sd.htm
The cost of a standard advertisement is £25 pa to include the following features:-
Additional features can be added such as a link to Bing Maps location plan (small additional cost applies) and page on Trip Advisor or similar site (free).
For the slightly higher cost of £40 per annum a 'Premier advert' will guarantee placement above all other types of advert on the appropriate page and will include an enhanced description, 2 photos, company logo if required plus an eye-catching design. See example below. Again, the number of click-throughs will be monitored. Listings will be in order of receipt but, where there are sufficient premier adverts on a page, they will be rotated on a monthly basis.
The key benefits of advertising on Bestwalks are :-
We aim to have monthly offers when adverts for accommodation in selected areas can be purchased at discounted prices of £15 for a standard and £30 for a premier. For February 2013 it is Cornwall - Now extended to 11 March.
The site is run by myself and a partner with the aim of providing a useful facility for walkers and, in doing so, recover some of my costs through reasonably priced, targeted, advertising. You will, therefore, receive prompt and personal attention.
To proceed with an advertisement simply email me firstname.lastname@example.org with the address of your website. I will then construct an advertisement immediately and invoice you once it has gone online [you will have an opportunity to make any appropriate amendments]. If you have specific wording you would like included please put this in the message and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I do understand that not everyone is a technophile!
