An advertising option expressly designed for the small business and home business owner here in Misawa.
Misawa Web Advertising:
won't take all your profits.
makes your information accessible 24/7.
won't wind up in the trash or on the bottom of the bird cage (like print media).
When you advertise with Misawajapan.com, here's what you get:
a link from our Misawa Merchants page to your web site.
a link to your web pages from the weekly Misawa Events newsletter (over 850 subscribers).
If you don't have a site already, I'll build you one and then link to it. You have two options for hosting your pages:
We can build your pages and load them on our server. This will get you online but you will not have your own web address (URL). Your link would look like http://www.misawajapan.com/yourbusiness. This might be OK if you won't promote your site and don't care about search engine recognition, site statistics, etc. The other big drawback to this option is that it’s not mobile. When you leave here, the link will come down and you will have to start over again at your next location.
Get your own domain name and web host. I can still build your page or you can do your own. Whether you are simply creating a blog to share your experiences with the folks back home or you are starting the next mega-congolmerate, you need your own domain name and web host to create and maintain name recognition. If you are serious about growing a business, this is the option for you. Misawa Web Hosting offers four options designed to fit your needs and your budget. Order the domain name and hosting package together and get a discount on the domain nme. This option lets you:
Load your pages directly to http://www.YourSiteName.com.
Your site won't change when you move (just change contact info).
Build Business Name Recognition.
Keep control over your own pages.
Make changes or update whenever you like.
Get Search Engine recognition (However, no one can guarantee how good the listing will be.)
Get Site Statistics (hits and page views, demographics, etc).
Easy set-up and user-friendly control panel for managing your site.
Personalized Email addresses. (i.e. YourName@YourSiteName.com or info@YourSiteName.com).
Before you decide be sure to check out MisawaWeb.com for all the details and options. I'm sure you will be suprised at our cost, content and ease of use.
I promote my site and that, in turn, helps bring folks to your page.
You can put your web page address in your advertising and on your business cards.
If your site in on Misawajapan.com server, you can update your info up to twice per month. Drop me an email.
All of this for only $50 (¥5000) per month. This will give you 24/7 exposure to the Misawa base community and mention of any specials or sales in the weekly newsletter which has over 850 subscribers plus many who access it directly from the main page. Additional pages or extra features may increase this monthly fee.
If you are a base-approved Home Business, we have really entrepreneur-friendly rates for you. Check this out for details.
If I build your pages, there is a one time set-up fee of $25 per hour. I will give you a time estimate before you commit to the project. This includes everything necessary to get your basic web page online. (Extra features such as rotating graphics, etc may add additional cost to the set-up fee.)
For more info or to set up an appointment, call me on my cell phone at 09010-62-1424 or complete this short form and I will reply via email.
All contracts will be for a minimum of three months time.
A page will consist of photos and info consistent with a particular theme or event. Pages will not scroll for an unreasonable length. For example, if a night spot has a food menu, a drink menu and an entertainment schedule, that would probably be 3 pages. However, if a place had a drink menu and a statement that snacks were available or a statement like “Nightly Entertainment”, that could all go on 1 page. Everything is negotiable.
A business page will contain not more than 3 photos along with text information. Photo are large and will slow down the time it takes a page to load. A killer for any business.
Advanced coding such as scrolling photos, etc will incur an additional fee that can be discussed.
All above rules can be adjusted on a case-by-case basis in an effort to meet a client’s unique desires.
