I wanted to mention a couple things that will help you promote your website here on CaribbeanChoice. Some are free and some are paid, and we have some plans and ideas for additional ways coming soon.
Here is what is available to you right now:
- Free Ad in the Caribbean MarketPlace Forum. This forum was setup specifically for advertising and you will notice by the number of views next to each post that people actually read them. Be sure to post your free ad there.
- Listing in the CaribbeanChoice Directory. Simply Submit Your Listing to be included (must be logged in). A reciprical link would be appreciated for free listings. You can also pay for a Featured Listing which will give you more exposure and insure that you are listed at the top of your category and at the top of relavent searches.
- Link in Your Signature. Be sure to modify your signature in your profile (under Settings) to include a link to your website (must be logged in). The more you post, the more your link appears! If people like what you say, they will probably check out your website too!
This should get you started and drive a little more traffic to your website.
Thumbshots.org Previews and Open Directory
We have also added thumbnail previews of websites in our directory from Thumbshots.org. Right now only websites with listings in the Open Directory have thumbnail previews. If you would like to have a thumbnail preview and you are not in the Open Directory, be sure to submit your site there. After Open Directory accepts your website and Thumbshots.org updates their database, your thumbnail preview will automaticaly appear on CaribbeanChoice. You will want to submit to Open Directory anyway since being listed there positively influences your ranking in many major search engines like Google.
I am looking for other ways to make it easy to promote your website in CaribbeanChoice. If you have any ideas, please let me know.
