Free Advertising for Maritime Businesses
Let's get the question about "The Bottom Line" out of the way first.
Advertising with BlueSeas is "Very Inexpensive" to begin with, and with our once a year "Free Ad Program," it reduces that cost even further.
How does "Free" sound? That’s right: "$0, Nada, Zilch point sh..."
OK, so you get the idea.
Do You Own a Marine Related Business?
At BlueSeas, we understand the questions you typically have about advertising; especially when it comes to Return on Investment.
- Do I need to advertise my business?
- How hard is setting up an advertising campaign?
- Will my advertisements be reaching the right audience?
- How much is this going to cost me?
- How much additional revenue will I gain?
These are just some of the questions that you should be asking yourself and obviously, getting the answers before you make any advertising decision. At BlueSeas, we believe that we have the answers for most of these questions and more.

Do You Need to Advertise?
While every business is different, the fact remains that most any business will benefit from advertising, if done correctly. Think about it for a moment: what comes to mind if someone simply mentions – "Clydesdale Horses" pulling a wagon or "Golden Arches" at the strreet corner, or a white dog with a "red and white bullseye symbol" around one eye?
Is it Difficult to Set Up a Major Advertising Campaign?
While the process is not difficult, it can be somewhat time consuming.
The advertising company is going to want to know a lot about You, Your business, Your website, the demographics of Your likely customer base. This probably will take the better part of a couple of weeks.
Almost forgot, somewhere in the first 10 minutes of your first meeting they are going to want to know how much you have allocated for your advertising budget.
They will then start to craft an advertising plan that will fit your goals and your business’s market niche; another week or two.
From there they will draft a campaign and graphics for your approval.
Oh yeah and somewhere along this path they will tell you how much all of this is going to cost you.
Will my Advertisements be Reaching the Right Audience?
The major advertising companies excel at branding campaigns, but it is a bit more hit or miss when it comes to advertising a single product or service in a niche market like the boating and yachting community.
You need to know ahead of time if they have good inroads into the marine market. If not, are they simply going to plaster your advertising on every wall possible and see what sticks?
And Finally: How Much is This Going to Cost Me?
Let me simply say that a full-fledged advertising campaign; "ain’t" cheap!
