How does it work?
Content and Newsletter
The pages of AboutMyArea/pe19 are always on, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and are constantly updated. In the last month alone, we have received over 52,000 visits to our pages. Our visitors are local people actively seeking local information. We drive traffic to our pages via our Twitter and Facebook feeds, and we score very highly in all the major search engines.
We are growing all the time, with the most significant increase in traffic recently coming from mobile phone users. 25% of our visitors now reach us while on the move, and they keep coming back for more.
Once a week, we produce a newsletter (example pictured above right) which is a round-up of all the stories added to the website during the week, along with forthcoming events. This goes straight into the inboxes of our registered users and our own business database, and links to it are shared across social media streams.
Our Local Business Directory is one of the most visited areas of the website. We can offer you an AMAZing listing that can include photos, editorial, testimonials, downloads, menus, special offers - pretty much anything you like. Plus, it can be updated at no additional cost, as often as you wish, usually within 24 hours.
Here are just a few examples of current AMAZing listings on AboutMyArea/PE19:
NEW! You can now review businesses with AMAZing listings on AboutMyArea. This means more of our readers will trust the product or service offered, as they will be able to see real local people recommending your business.
We dedicate the space at the top and sides of our pages to local businesses, to help them reach our readers.
Over the coming months we will see all the normal local major events taking place in the area, including the Jubilee Weekend, Rowing Regatta, Firework Displays and more. Big Events mean Big Numbers - visitors will want to find out details of the events before they happen, and look at photos of them afterwards. That's what makes us unique - we provide the coverage people are really looking for.
Why not take advantage of all that traffic and let people know what YOU have to offer?
