Your ad or link info will be seen many times, by many different people, for a relatively small amount of money. Advertising costs for your business are also tax deductible.
WELL KNOWN AND REPUTABLE. Jesse's Hunting & Outdoors (JHO), has been around since 1998 and is recognized in the hunting, fishing and outdoor community as a family friendly website community. We're honest, and we operate under a system of integrity. We won't mislead you to believe something false so that we can "sell" you, or evade you once you've paid your money. We like to build a relationship with a customer and we want them to feel very comfortable about their use of our services. Our objective gear reviews are widely used by many sales departments and potential buyers for reference. Our popular community bulletin board (forum), has over 38,000 registered members. There are many more who visit as guests.
HIT YOUR TARGET. You already have a targeted, pre-qualified market here at JHO. If you're after the eyes of say the Mule deer hunters in the western United States you can advertise on the Mule Deer Hunting webpage and the Mule Deer Hunting forum. That way you get the exposure to the specific customers you're after. No more wasted time buying print ads that you have no way of knowing who sees your ad. You have control over where your ad is placed. In print media you have no control over where you ad is placed unless you buy covers. You also have a way to immediately reach your audience here on JHO with our forum. With print media there is no way to reach your target audience.
WE'RE HERE 24/7. The JHO website is hosted on our own dedicated high performance web server and high quality network with complete backups. Site up time is 99.98%. Your audience will never experience "404 page not found" errors or slow loading of pages on the JHO website. We don't skimp on keeping the doors open. Nothing will drive web users away more than a failed click or slow loading of a web page.
LOTS OF EYEBALLS. The JHO website is very sticky. In Internet lingo this means visitors spend a lot of time here reading and looking around. We have a very content rich website which is kept fresh with new articles, Journal features, RSS feeds and reviews of guides and outfitters. We are also highly ranked by all the big search engines and have reciprocal links to hundreds of similar websites. This is what keeps people coming to visit JHO. We are active in social media with a YouTube channel, Facebook page and Twitter account where we promote our website and sponsors several times a week.
SO HOW BUSY IS JHO? How can you tell how big and busy JHO really is and how much business your ad will generate for you? Many websites list hits per month, page views or unique visitors but these figures are almost useless to show how many people actually visited the website. Take any website statistics with a grain of salt. A hit to a website can be a request from another website for a file or image and a potential customer never even visited the website. Unique visitor numbers show a more realistic idea of how many people visit the website but are not totally reliable. At some point, the focus has to shift from quantity toward quality. What are customers getting for their money? How likely are they to come back? How many of them will preach the site's virtues to their friends? Those questions are not answered by looking at website statistics alone.
NO WAITING OR WASTING TIME. No 2 to 3 month in advance deadlines for ad placement. We usually can get your banner ads running in day or two. We generally have a 5 -6 day turnaround on setup of new web sites. You can also make changes, even once your web site has "gone to press".
MAKE CONTACT NOW. You can interact with more potential customers in a shorter time period than ever before possible. You can instantly post a message with images on the JHO forum to curious customers. This will save you money on your phone bill and the cost of stamps and printing for a brochure or letter.
FRIENDLY CUSTOMER SERVICE. We realize all clients like to enjoy knowing there is someone willing to help out in a time of need. We enjoy our business and all the new people it allows us to come into contact with. We have a "Can Do" attitude here to help with any glitches that may arise. We can be reached 24/7 by email. If we don't know the answer or where to send you for help, we will find out. You can count on us.
