Firstly - thank you for your interest. Secondly I would just like to explain why, and how, people use Dive Report as a SUCBA Diving marketing channel and how you can get 6 months of totally free advertising just by promoting your company through Dive Report.
How it works..
Why use Dive Report..
Pages are basically mini profiles for Dive Centres. They enable divers to tag your Dive Centre in reports.
Premium pages are enhanced pages with better contact abilities and options to give full information about your Dive Centre and are nominally priced. Premium pages have no advertising presence.
There are 10 fixed advert positions on each location and you can buy a position only if it is available. They are displayed to the right of dive reports. See example Ads'>
Gain social media exposure
Dive Report's unique platform enables divers to post reports and tag the dive centre that they went with (if they have set up a page).
Divers are encouraged to share their report on their social networks helping to spread the word about your brand. The report remains on the location page acting as a social recommendation to other divers.
The Dive Centre page system enables users to visit the page via an advert or via reports where the dive centre was tagged. On the page they are able to instantly contact the dive school direct, or go and visit their site.
The site is equiped with various anti-spam measures that ensure good quality enquiries.
By nature, the vast amount of unique and topical content on Dive Report, and the linking structure within the site, by having Dive Reports linking to centre pages, and centre pages to your website, you are able to enhance you SEO efforts while marketing your brand.
As each location and set of reports are highly focused on locations where you operate it provides very focused and high quality links.
The more reports that link through to your centre page the more 'SEO juice' is passed from Dive Report to your website.
Any suggestions? - we are open to ideas and thoughts about our offering. Our aim is to make a great diving resource that offers benefits to divers and businesses alike.
