|What is The Bay Guide's Discount Club? Boating
is expensive and we at The Bay Guide are boaters and we love to save money.
A discount club is a perfect fit to this guide. We want to offer
our visitors the best deals on the best marine products and services around
the Bay and online. From discounts at marinas and fuel docks to restaurants
and other marine services we would like this to become the place to save
money, and with your help it will.
Why use The Bay Guide to offer discounts to boaters? This
is the online source used by more Chesapeake Bay boaters. We are
focused locally on the Chesapeake Bay and have been since 1995. More
and more sites rely on The Bay Guide for their boating information.
Recently National Geographic's Traveler magazine featured information from
The Bay Guide twice in an article about the Chesapeake Bay. We have
the traffic and we can help promote your business and increase sales.
Why is our club better for your business than other Discount Clubs?
more members. The other clubs out there charge their members a fee
to join and we don't. Our club is free for all visitors to our website.
Our website offers boaters the information they need, and they keep coming
back. No other website offers visitors what we do. Plus, with
the addition of the Monthly Contest and the Monthly Newsletter we expect
traffic and awareness of this program to increase substantially.
What exactly are we offering? We are offering marine businesses
targeted advertising on TheBayGuide.com. This site is the resource
most boaters and clubs use for information. We offer you an ad with
your companies logo and business description with a hyperlink to your website
in our discount section. Your ad will get seen by the Chesapeake
Bay boater, sailor, fisherman and anyone that loves saving money around
the Chesapeake Bay. In addition we added a new Discount Program section
to our monthly newsletter to increase awareness and help promote this new
program. We will also be marketing this program separately on the
Internet as well as boat to boat on the Chesapeake Bay. Remember,
we are boaters too, and we are out on the Chesapeake Bay every weekend
promoting our guide. Also, if you sell your product in bulk, or are
looking for a reseller or a local distributor our site is used by Bay area
businesses as well as boaters, so your ad will get seen by consumers and
What are the discount requirements? The discounts are totally
flexible and up to you. If your offering a flat percent off we require
at least a 10% discount. If you would like to offer free shipping,
multiple ordering discounts, and /or group buys of your products that is
fine. If your a marina you can offer transient discounts like a certain
percent off, free cable or free electric. The discounts are up to
you. We just want to help out our visitors by saving them some money
and help out local businesses by increasing their business. But remember,
the better the discount the better the response.
How much does it cost? Absolutely nothing! What have
you got to lose?
Anything Else? Yes, there is one more thing, and it is
free too. You will also get your regular listing upgraded.
This includes moving your existing listing out of the alphabetical index
where it now resides to the top of the page with your logo, a link to your
discount ad, and a link to your site.
