Has anyone heard of it and what are your thoughts.
If it's Thomsons I'd want it to be UK only, in fact I'd want it to be UK only for everyone.
I'm not convinced the market needs or can cope with another "player"
Yeap I got pestered too.
This may be a mistake (sorry didn't listen very closely) the rep was just going though the "carefully" rehearsed speach but they want £150 to set-up your account! Can anyone confirm that?
Last year they wanted £60 for a link in the directory -- a total waste of money, (I think they have dropped that this year) maybe worth it as a PPC but not as a subscription.
An Account Manager will help you set up your account and suggest appropriate keywords for your products and services.
We will visit your site and review titles and descriptions for each of these keywords, or even write them for you.
£250 + VAT includes annual account management and £100 of credits in your online click-through account.
You register, set up and manage your own account online, without the assistance of an account manager.
You choose keywords for your main products and services and write titles and descriptions for each of these keywords.
£99 + VAT covers the administration fee and £50 of credits in your online click-through account.
I certainly wouldn't bother with the full service. Am wating to see if its worth paying for the self service option.
Would love to know the people advising them on that set up.
It's almost like the arrogance of being one of the two main paper directories makes them think that they can march in and do what they like in the online world.
Loo at how poorly Bidsmart did and you will see the barrier to entry being extremely high.
If it's £49 I'm not even going to bother, bound to be poor value.
2003 will also see results from WebFinder.com appearing on these sites:and proceeds to list Freeserve, Alta Vista etc..
Overture are bound to have the prime spots on Freeserve and AV, so what they going to get? Oh, and when, 2003 has just started, December 31st?
