What determines the
placement of the ads?
The ads are listed on a first-come-first-serve basis and by number of
bedrooms. At renewal time (annually), you will retain your place provided you are
paid up within 15 days of the rollover date.
I don't see a page for
my local area...can I still list my property?
At our discretion, we will create a new local page for
your area...no charge! Otherwise your listing will be placed in the page for the
nearest sizeable locality. The exact location of your property will be noted in our
directory and your page will receive a custom header showing its location.
How effective will my ad be?
Expect good results! In-season, a number of our clients have reported multiple
rentals within one month of listing. Click here
to see what our web members say. Mid-season and off-season rental business
will substantially increase.
"A picture is worth a thousand words" (and probably several thousand dollars!)
To get the most out of your web page, you will need to provide good pictures.
A prospective tenant will be more likely to rent your property if he or she can gain a
feeling of familiarity.
We cannot overstate the importance
of good pictures. Remember, the size of the audience for these ads is enormous (more than
million Internet users in the U.S. alone) and growing rapidly. The potential for the ad to
bring in business is considerable and with good presentation, your ad, on duty 24 hrs a
day, year round, will be of maximum benefit!
Calendars...should I use one?
years it has become clear... listings with up-to-date Calendars do significantly
better. Calendar links appear with the short descriptions in each City
Directory. People looking for a rental will always check out the listings
with Calendars first. Our EZCal Calendar is integrated with your regular
input for Rates & Contact info etc. Plus... you are free to use the EZCal
on your private web page if you have one.
