Are you a small business owner whose web page is not generating enough income?
We know about web pages and marketing and apply our knowledge to benefit our clients.
We offer FREE listings and very inexpensive web pages. Compare Mercury Bay Online with the area's other website below.
We maximize your ROI (Return On Investment) for your advertising budget. Our web pages are charged at the lowest rate because you only pay for the service you get and nothing more.
Our server utilizes top-of-the-line hardware and is maintained 24/7/365. We have NO membership fees, NO dues and NO massive overheads to sustain. What we provide is simply the best and least expensive service.
We help you take pride in your Internet presence; after all, it is what creates your first impression with visitors!
We encourage clients to make sure their content is up to date. Nothing turns off a visitor more than when they go to a web page that presents outdated information.
We ensure that every web page provides a clear message; we emphasize why you offer the best value to your clients. That "hooks" visitors within the first few seconds so they will not leave your web page.
We focus on the facts and features that visitors are looking for and reserve background information for area pages (or your PDF downloads).
We make it easy for visitors to contact you directly using your email address, telephone number and business address.
Since it is impossible to be everything for everyone, we tailor your web page to target your audience.
People love free things so we let visitors know of your special offers. Never miss an opportunity to attract new business by setting yourself "above the crowd" with potential clients.
If you use social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, or Flickr accounts), we will link those into your contact details so you won't lose valuable interactions with your customers.
We know not to clutter your web page. We use the "Less Is More" approach to maintain a balance of bullet-emphasized content and white space to help the visitor's eye to gravitate to the important thing: Your message.
"No superfluous glitz" keeps Mercury Bay Online loading fast - a critical feature for those with slower connections or bandwidth limits.
Mercury Bay Online was Mercury Bay's first community website and is still open to everyone - no membership or dues required (see below). Join with your neighbours to benefit from our online community.
With the "plans" for Mercury Bay including cruise ships, scallop festivals and the coming 250th anniversary of Capt. Cook's landing, all operators need to have an online presence. However, you don't need to be gouged, you need MercuryBay.co.nz

If you are still not convinced, try the form below for your FREE listing. Please note that it will be reviewed before being posted online.
(Please leave your phone number to facilitate coordination of editing if required.)
Please note, too, that this website is being updated so the free listings will take a while to find a great home. No worries, it will happen soon!
Update! There had been an error in the form processing which prevented me from receiving requests. That has been resolved and the FREE listing offer is still good. Mea Culpa!
