Advertising on CaribbeanChoice
Free and Paid Options
There are several ways for you to promote your website or business on CaribbeanChoice, many of them free. Here is an overview of some of your options.
- Advertise on CaribbeanChoice via Google Ads (Bid)
You may have noticed that we carry Google Ads on our website. If you want your ad to appear in any of the Google Ads blocks, you can target our site directly in Google Ads to guarantee your ad appears on our website. With Google Ads, you bid for position on our website with other advertisers, which keeps the price very competitive.
- Post an Ad in the Caribbean MarketPlace Forum (FREE).
We've created a special place on our forums where you can post an ad or announcement. Feel free to post as many as you like there, however, no duplicate items, please. All posts including ads, as always, must conform to the Forum Rules. (Note: Advertising is off-limits in all the other forums.)
- Submit Your Link to the CaribbeanChoice Directory (FREE)
Submit your websites to our directory and get a free basic listing. Please submit each link only once and only submit family-safe links. Your free link will appear once it is approved by an Administrator.
- Featured Listing in the CaribbeanChoice Directory ($2)
After you submit your free basic listing, you have an option to upgrade it to a Featured Listing. For only $2 a month, your listing will be featured at the top of relevant search results and at the top of the relevant category, making it easier for people to find your listing.
- Submit an Article (FREE)
If you are an author and want to get some free exposure, you can submit an article to us. The article itself should not be advertising, however, you are allowed an About the Author section (also known as a Resource Box) where you can plug your website, product or service and link to your website. Not all articles will be accepted, but those that are will receive good exposure on our website. (Note: You must be the author and/or copyright holder of the article. Do not submit other people's work.)
- Submit an Press Release (FREE)
We do accept Press Releases, however, it must be something we deem as valuable to our readers. Press Releases disguised as articles are treated like Press Releases. Its better to write an article and promote yourself in the Resource Box, rather than promote yourself in the body of the article. But, as I said, if it is something that interests our readers, we may just print it. Just make sure the Press Release has as much value to the reader as it does to your product or service or website you are plugging.
- Signature Line on Your Forum Posts (FREE)
Another way to get free exposure is to post in the forum. If you post in the forum, you will want to update your profile so that your signature line links back to your website. To make it clickable, it needs to look like this: [url]http://www.caribbeanchoice.com[/url] or [url=http://www.caribbeanchoice.com]CaribbeanChoice.com[/url]. You can update you profile by changing your Settings in the Member Control Panel.
- Link to Your Website in Your Profile (FREE)
If people find what you have to say interesting, they will often look at your profile. Be sure to include your website address (URL) in your profile so people will visit your website. You can update you profile by changing your Settings in the Member Control Panel.
More options to advertise will be coming soon. But these will get you started.
We look forward to working with you and helping your business grow!
