October 29, 2008 // Franchising.com // Upcoming Internet business Villa Marine Lifestyles has launched a new marketing support service to help customers promote their website more effectively.
Villa Marine Lifestyles, which sells destination websites, has put together four subscription packages comprising online marketing, advertising and public relations as well as telesales.
Aimed at customers that may have limited technical skills or little experience and knowledge of Internet marketing, the packages include elements such as site and keyword optimisation, search engine optimisation, link building, banner advertising, article and press release writing, and telesales training.
The new support service is also ideal for those who already have a primary job or carer role and are looking to boost their income with minimal effort.
Customers can subscribe to a basic, standard, ultimate or supreme package, and costs start from £349 per month.
Lee Jacobs, chief executive at Villa Marine Lifestyles, said: "Many of our customers do not have a marketing or technical background, while others come on board to gradually build up a home-based business so they can ultimately quit their full-time job.
"We want to help them get maximum returns from their investment and felt there was a need to provide a range of cost-effective marketing solutions.
"We have pulled together a team of marketing and technical experts to support the activity of Villa Marine Lifestyles website owners for as little or long as they want.
"The new marketing service will let us help customers build their website business up during a specific time period, enabling them to gain relevant training before taking the marketing back in-house. It's also perfect for those who want to sit back and, with very little effort, enjoy the profits from their business.
"Customers not sure what level of package to subscribe to can call or email us to chat through the options. We will advise them on the best solution according to their current experience and how much work time they wish to devote to the business."
Villa Marine Lifestyles was set up in 2005 and sells websites publicising property, yachts and lifestyle companies, such as hotels, restaurants, golf clubs and diving schools, in a country or region.
A Villa Marine Lifestyles website can be managed anywhere the Internet is accessed, such as a home address or mobile office. The minimum requirement for running the website is a personal computer or laptop.
To determine if running an Internet business and working from home are best for you, the team at Villa Marine Lifestyles has devised a brief questionnaire.
