- As long of a business
description as you want (multiple paragraphs/sections, describe
business hours, products, specials, etc.)

business' own web site
- Work with me by Email and/or
on the phone to get your listing to look just the way you want it

banner ad to complement your listing (appears on several pages and
periodically rotates between high and low traffic pages) - contact me

many people will see my Premium Listing?
The current price is only $25.00 for a whole year. The price MAY be
raised if the
amount of traffic to the web site increases, but if you sign up now you
will "lock in" at this price and be guaranteed your full year.
I sign up?
We can predict this by knowing the number of visitors to the web site
and the size/importance of your business. Click
here to view the latest web site statistics. If desired, I can also
research in my logs how many visitors have
visited YOUR business' page recently (and estimate how many of those
were from search engine "robots" and how many are from actual Coldwater
Beware of competitor web sites that make bold claims of number of
visitors! Just because a web site might have a high ranking in Google
doesn't mean that people are actually visiting the web site. And if
they are, are those mostly search engine "robots", or real people? And
if real people, are you given the average number of people that are
visits all that company's web sites for all cities, or are these
Coldwater residents? Are you given a count of "hits", which might be 20
if the same user looks at 20 web pages the same day, or "visits", which
is a count of one person viewing one or more web pages in a "session"?
I care very much about businesses in Coldwater, especially small
businesses, and I am striving to set advertising rates to be very fair
based on the actual amount of traffic the web site gets. I also am
giving everyone a free listing, and am selling
Premium listings only to those that want them and will benefit from
them, meaning that everyone will get back in sales more than they paid
for advertising. What really disturbs me are reports I'm hearing of a
competitor using "hard sell" techniques, including placing website
advertisements with corporate logos on a web site without permission,
then offering advertising at a price that is not reasonable based on
the amount of real traffic the web site will see. It does not help
businesses to be cheated like this, and it hurts my web site also as
businesses will come to distrust ALL internet-based advertising. I do
not mind competition; I just want all internet-based advertising to
have fair prices based on proven statistics. So... by all means, if you
don't know me that well and want to scrutinize me before you buy, ask
me to show you my numbers!
Email or call me telling me what you want (see below for my contact
information). I can copy and paste text from your Email into your
Premium Listing. Email me a photo, drawing, or logo as an attachment
and I can use that for the picture with your listing. You can also mail
a picture to me that I can scan in with my scanner, but it will be
easier for you and it will look better if you can send it via Email.
You can also direct me to copy a photo or logo from a web site you may
already have. I can give you payment instructions when you contact me.
