Attention way-too-busy cottage-related business owners...
Here's how to quickly and easily increase your profits, by getting many more people to know about your cottage-related business
- the New way to grab the attention of cottage-goers -- exactly when they are researching their vacations!

Marketing your business was not the primary reason you opened shop.

Marketing takes time away from what you do best - your main business.

What if you had a TEAM of marketing experts working for you - behind-the-scenes, 24-hours a day, all year long, every day? What's the answer? How can this be done?

Before you you sign up with CottageMania.ca, there are five questions you need answered...
1) Wait! Isn't my competition going to be there, too?
Your potential customers want their search for information to be as simple as possible. CottageMania.ca is "one-stop shopping" for people wanting cottage-related info.
It's a central location where people can compare options and choose the cottage vacation or services they want. Based on the way people search for information these days, you DO need to be grouped with your competition.
If your potential customers are only going to bookmark one all-encompassing site, like CottageMania.ca, shouldn't your business be there for them?
At the very least, be sure to register your company for the free basic listing. If your competition is going to be there, how can you afford not to?
2) Who should be listed on CottageMania.ca?
If your business caters to seasonal vacationers in any of the following categories, you should be listed in Cottagemania.ca:
3) CottageMania.ca hasn't even launched yet, so how can I be sure it will get me seen by more people?
My company has proven its ability to successfully attract TONS of visitors to a website.
For functionality and underlying concept, please check out one of our already-up-and-running sites: NaturalHealthcare.ca. We developed that site, and maintain it on a daily basis.
NaturalHealthcare.ca currently draws OVER TWENTY THOUSAND PEOPLE EACH WEEK -- week after week!
NaturalHealthcare.ca has a wide range of attractive and targeted content which brings people looking for information on a variety of topics - from how to grow and use herbs to how to make your own bath salts.
CottageMania.ca will be set up similarly, only for YOUR market -- the cottage market.
4) Why are you launching CottageMania.ca in the Fall?
Getting to the number one position in Search Engines takes time.
Launching in October ensures that there is time to tweak the database and grow the site to the maximum size and ranking by the time people are researching their Summer 2005 vacations in late Winter or early Spring.
Why should your company be in the directory from day one? Being in the directory when the site launches ensures that the benefit of our search engine optimization carries through to your website. As our site is "crawled" by the search engines, they will follow the links to your pages and "index" yours, as well as passing the "vote of confidence" in our website's quality through to YOUR listing or site.
I strongly advise you to take action now -- to fully enjoy the benefits for the 2005 season! Don't wait until it's too late.
The other reason we are launching it in the fall is to ensure that we have the maximum number of companies listed by the time vacationers are gathering their info for the 2005 season. The more listings, the more content the search engine sees on CottageMania.ca. The larger CottageMania.ca is, the more prominently it appears in search engine "results" when your potential customers are getting ready to book their holidays.
Here's incredible news!...
We've ALREADY managed to get CottageMania.ca a Google Page Rank of 4 -- and it hasn't even launched yet!
5) So, how much is this going to cost me?
