Business Owners Membership
How much does it cost to be a business owner member, and what do I get?
Business Owner Membership is free and it entitles you to start threads in the business owners forum. This forum is public and gets indexed by Google, your threads are better in that section opposed to Barstool Banter. When you add a thread to promote your business, please make the title relevant to your business and check the spelling along with adding your targeted keywords and tags. Once you have done the thread, please link to it from your website and as many other places as possible. This is to get your thread higher in Google, for your search terms, this is important, any bad reviews or sabotage reviews, will rank below your thread. The links also help our forum grow, which is mutually beneficial to everyone.
Can I advertise my business in my signature?
We allow banners and links in your signature, in fact it's encouraged. We do not allow signatures showing nudity whatsoever.
If I can put my banner in my signature, why pay to advertise along with a banner or brand of some sort?
There are two very good reasons for this.
1. Each post you make will probably be read a few times each month and your signature advertising will show the same number of times. For example if you make 20 posts a month your signature advertising will be seen a few hundred times each month. Paid adverts on the other hand are seen over 200,000 times per month per advertiser. Compare that to other advertisers.
2. Only members can see your signature banners, the true value to advertisers is our high "guest" numbers i.e. not repeat visitors but NEW unique ones every day. We have over 2000+ guest visitors every day reading some public sections of the forum. Guests cannot see signatures but they can see your banners or text links if advertised globally on the site!
What other free promotional tools are on offer?
You can offer discounts to our members through our Philippines Addicts discount card scheme, here are the businesses that are currently involved. Philippines Addicts Discount Cards. If you choose to participate in the discounts, it is highly advised you advertise that fact in your signature for additional free exposure. We highly recommend you use the Philippines Addicts Calendar to promote any special events during the calendar year for further free exposure. This may be found here - http://www.philippin...forum/calendar/
Basic Rules for Philippines Business Owners:
We offer business owners a lot more than the other forums do, so please don't abuse the rules. The rules state that business owners are only allowed one thread in the business owners section, we do have business owners abusing this rule, but sometimes there are acceptable circumstances for having separate threads.
If you are a hotel owner and want to promote your hotel, you should have one thread with updated photos in and answer all the inquiries in that thread. However if you are a bar, club, disco, nightclub or restaurant owner and you constantly have reoccurring events and photos, its acceptable to start another thread to advertise each separate event, "photo of the day" or party.
