  • Question: What about display contracts? I really don’t want a long-term commitment.
    Answer: It is natural to want to avoid a long term advertising and marketing agreement. The fact is though that in most cases it will do at least two things for you: 1). It will save you money. We can offer you a better ROI when you agree to market your company for at least twelve months. We can offer you an even better deal when you agree to market for twenty four months. In our experience, the best value proposition in advertising and marketing is to think in terms of one year at a time. This gives you the maximum benefit of our efforts made on your behalf. 2). The second fact is that it can take a while for your message to provide the biggest benefit for you. 3). Shutting down your advertising and marketing costs you momentum in the market place. Momentum is something you want to take advantage of. Think about successful companies you know. McDonalds and Coke come to mind right? Do you see them turning off their advertising? To be truly successful and grow your business, you need to think longterm, day in, day out display of your message and your company to your target market. Your target market is looking for companies to do business with right now here on HRC. Make sure you are well represented and that they choose to do business with you.
  • Question: How soon can you generate leads for me?
    Answer: Leads for your company can happen within minutes of your showcase launch or take as long as a week to begin to come into you. There are things we can do on our end to hasten your activity and we can discuss them when we are strategizing your membership plan with us.
  • Question: I like the idea of Sponsorships. Do you offer them on HouseboatRentalCenter.com?
    Answer: Yes, we do offer Sponsorship positions for select companies. The number of sponsors is limited however and is subject to HRC criteria. Our visitors love Sponsors!
  • Question: I understand that I get a “Showcase” with my membership. How does that work?
    Answer: With your membership, we custom build a showcase for you. Think of this showcase as an online brochure that hits the high points of your company. In this showcase you will have words that describe your offering to our visitors and pictures that show different aspects you would like to share of your experience. In addition, we offer you the ability to display a publicly hosted VIDEO (like on youtube for example) that can be like a commercial on TV for your company. We will embed your  link to your video on our Featured Showcase.
