"Yeah, yeah, this is all nice but I already have a web site. Why do I need Lake-Link?"Lake-Link is not trying to take anything away from your web site. We are giving MORE EXPOSURE to your business and MORE TRAFFIC to your web site. We take the "Highlights" of your web site to create your full page promo on Lake-Link. The great thing is that people can request a reservation information right from Lake-Link and don't even have to go to your site. If they need more info we will push them to your site.
Ever do a Google search for your business and are not happy with where you are ranked? Many of our partner's pages are listed higher on Google then their own web sites. Why is this? There are many technical reasons but the main reason is due to Lake-Link's site traffic and our ever updating content which gives Lake-Link a priority ranking with many search engines.
"I don't currently have a web site. Can I still promote my business with Lake-Link?"OF COURSE! Your page on Lake-Link can even act as your basic web site if you wish. We can even help you secure a domain name for your business (eg: www.MyBusiness.com) and when a user goes to that web address it can be made to go directly to your page on Lake-Link. This can be a great way to launch your web presence.
"What will it cost me?"The real question is "can you afford NOT to do it?". We strive to keep our prices low and extremely cost effective.
You get all the above services for only $329* for an entire year. For less than $28 per month, that cant be beat! We like to say "the first booking will pay for itself" (don't forget the repeat business).
