WHY

Small businesses and organizations deserve the same capabilities used by larger corporations to attract and engage with customers.

Research proves that very few people will make a purchase decision the first time they come across your information. This means the work you do on Customer Acquisition & Customer Retention requires tools and proven  strategies to attract people, get them to come back, motivate them to become customers, and then help them refer and review your business. Without busting your budget.

Best-practice and quality components can make a big difference when trying to make this idea a reality.

Cooperation and shared resources can give Local Small Business a big advantage.

As Your Primary Website

The Community Network is an ideal place to host your primary website; use your own domain name (mysite.com) or simply a subsite (tourguidepress.com/mysite/).

Shared resources means you get access to a massive number of top-name themes and premium performance plugins at very low cost without compromising quality and professionalism. 

As a Tier 1 Authority Blog

Writing articles that describe your primary website as a solution to problems is a solid SEO strategy and perfectly inline with Google guidelines that encourage offsite content to “inform users, educate another site’s audience or bring awareness to your cause or company.”

This is NOT some spammy and secretive Private Blog Network (PBN), it is a community network that reinforces brand recognition and writer authority. 

As Landing Page Host

Well designed and feature-rich pages that people arrive upon from advertising or social media campaigns can make a huge difference to your success. Many options available including professionally designed templates, as well as, addons for autoresponders, list building, and conversion optimization.

Spicypress Extra Chestnuts

Extra Chestnuts

Have you ever been to a farmer's market or a street vendor selling something like roasted chestnuts; and as they measure your order they top it off with a little extra, or add something for free? 

We like to give bonuses too. We start by offering quality products; with compelling value from an unmatched selection of tools; and then add just a bit more. In addition to built-in brand authority promotion of member sites, these extras might be product or plugin bonuses, special deals, shared images, or complimentary services for video creation and promotion, marketing or web development tasks.

Maybe we should call them digital chestnuts.

WHERE

Not surprisingly, where you host your content really does matter. Aside from benefiting from community networking niche relevant data relationships (critical to authority building), audience sharing, and cooperative promotion - a few additional factors can impact both performance and your online reputation.

A big performance issue (page loading speed) can stem from the physical location of the web servers. The closer a server is to where a person accesses the internet the faster the page loading response time is. We use Cloudflare CDN (content delivery network) for both added security and to help deliver a faster user experience.  

The specifications for the web server and hosting are also important and something we've invested in.

WHEN

“Luck Is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity"

Conveying "Urgency" is a tried and true tactic to improve conversions; you might roll your eyes but it is true,  ie. "Buy Now While Supplies Last".

However we don't need to tell you that...

It doesn't take a mad scientist to figure out. If it only takes minutes to start a website then the real issue is "Opportunity Cost".  A professional powerful website is proven to be very valuable to any business and is a competitive advantage. Over time it will increase the quantity and quality of your customers.

Every day you delay means lost potential.

So... the next question is what are you waiting for?

How It Works

Community Marketing

Authority = Content and Activity Connected to Your Brand

The basic idea behind Tour Guide Press Web Publishing and Community Networking is to make it easy for people to find and share what they're interested in (products, services, events, people), and to interact through comments, forum questions and answers, ratings, reviews, news, social sharing, and more.

Its a place to both publish and participate

Small businesses and organizations can attract and keep clients by taking advantage of crowd-marketing and presenting useful content to a shared audienceThis also connects niche relevant authority to brand identity. Marketers can communicate directly with an engaged audience, while boosting overall online authority.

Economy-of-scale sharing of high-quality resources (hosting, themes, plugins, tools, info & assistance) reduces costs while making everything easier.
