Fly-ins

When a web page first loads, a creative "Fly-in" can catch the eye... Click on the links to the right... and watch the Fly-in!

You Are Important

Auto Pop-up Windows

Most people hate pop-ups, as they can be aggravating. We try to keep them small, unobtrusive, and only pop up once in 24 hours. Today, there are many "Pop-up blockers" but we create pop-ups that are unstoppable, and therefore, when used with tact, can be most effective. Try one out in the box on the right...

We believe one should use intelligent pop-ups that are far less annoying than the unintelligent pop-ups that most sites utilize.

Sorry, we have no examples of
pop-ups at this moment!

Search This Website

To be able to search your website is a basic necessity for visitors because they  might not see the link that they are looking for, some people prefer to use a search entry form, and sometimes a visitor just gets frustrated with finding info. An advantage of using a search program on your website is that you can see what searches have been performed, and if there is a trend, it might be worth modifying your link structure to match what people want!

See the Laughter search on upper right-hand side

 

Pop-up Windows

Pop-up windows are useful for showing more information about a product, photo, etc. We can specify where the popup window will appear on a monitor, and also "dress up" the window so it has a professional look to it.

We can add text or image links that will automatically open a new browser window rather than load into the current browser window, which is a great way for displaying special offers, news items and other information that you don’t want to appear in an existing window.

Visitor Statistics

We recommend putting at least two different statistic compliers on your website. Each has it's own peculiarities, and advantages. We know of two that are very good and... free! Stats can show you where your visitors are coming from, what they are looking for, and a lot of other useful information. The Pacific Websites hosting comes with at least two great statistics programs.

See the stats for Filberg Park

RSS Feed

You web site can have fresh content added automatically if you have a blog or news subscription. Here is good example of a Grizzly Bear Tour Report that has been added to a B&B website.

FAQ

A "Frequently Asked Questions" page will save you time explaining things to your customers. Suggest that they read your FAQ page before they send you an email, and you will free up your time. Informed customers are so much better to work with!

FAQs for Walkers Hat Shop

Forums

Forums offer interactivity with other visitors. For discussing subjects related to your business. They have potential to greatly increase the traffic to your site.

Fungus Forum

Auto Add Links

This is a time-saver for your webmaster as it puts the onus of adding links on the other sites' webmasters. Best used as a supplement to an aggressive linking campaign.

Sorry, no examples available at this moment.

Mouse Rollovers

automatically produce drop-down lists for menu navigation, and can be vertical or horizontal.

Frames page

Frames pages are usually frowned upon by web promotion companies (including us) but there are some specific, very useful applications that have tremendous benefit.

Sorry, there are no creative uses of a “Frames” page available at this moment.

PDF and Program Downloads

Have your website visitors download your PDF to view or programs to run...

This is a  program download:

Email Signups

Highly recommended, as this increases user interaction, reminds them of your existence, etc., etc. A win-win for all. People who sign up must be able to un-subscribe at any time, easily.

This keeps the work on the visitor, and allows your webmaster (or you) to focus on other things. It is completely hands off for you.

With an email sign-up you will be able to keep in contact with your viewers and customers - potential business.

Example of a sign-up or subscribe page.

Sell Products Online

Your products can be sold through your website, with a third-party taking care of the security issues. Your customers can use their credit cards to give you money before you ship! We have extensive experience with PayPal, the world's biggest third-party online company.

Create Private Areas

Your website can have an area on it that is only accessible if they know the secret login and password - which you can give them in an email or on a promotion. Great for a 'private area forum' or for special 'added benefits' of a product.

We can't show you one
because they are all private!

Your signed-up customers can have private info and discussions

Databases

Useful in organizing large amounts of information and presenting it in any way you desire.

Harbour Listings

Scrolling info box

Shows lots of info in a very small space, usually a box. It tends to keep visitors on your site longer, because they are drawn to it.

Sorry, not available at this moment.

Show the time...

Show your current time in hours and minutes - you won't get telephone calls in the middle of the night! If you watch on the right for a minute you can see it change once a minute - it's live!

(see “Our current time is:”) http://www.toenail-fungus.com/contact.htm

Show today's date...

This helps to make your website appear current and up-to-date. Insert the current date into any of your pages and have it update automatically at midnight each day, which means your pages will always look up-to-date.

Location Maps

Make it easy for visitors to see where you are located - a must for bed and breakfasts', hotels, any accommodation business. Google Maps makes it easy to add to your site and many people are familiar with how to use it.

See the Google Map on this page:
www.comoxvalleyinn.com/location-maps.htm

Website Site Maps

Adding a map to your website will make it easier for visitors to find information that they are looking for. There is another benefit, and that is the search engines will be able to spider (index) your site so they can show more of your information on their results pages. Highly recommended.
