Will sponsoring one of our area guides produce results for you? Below are comments we've received from some of our sponsors. Also, it's important to note, our network is still in its infancy. Imagine the results as our coverage area expands and many more people are on the Internet on a daily basis.
Check out the quote below. We received this e-mail message 2/8/99 from the owner of The Flag House Inn in Annapolis. They're the number one listed Bed & Breakfast on our Anne Arundel County site:

"...Also want you to know that we have had many phone calls stating our web page is great and numerous visitors in the past few weeks who said the web page is what got them here!! Plus our bookings for this Feb far exceed the very small number we had last year. Mid-week bookings in Feb are almost unheard of and we have had quite a few. Thanks again for all you do. Best, Charlotte..."
Special note: Charlotte and Bill have been with us from the start (since 7/10/98) and we appreciate their kind words and continued support. Craig Shipp, Webmaster

We are pleased to be part of MontgomeryCountyMD.com. Our website began to bring results almost the first day it was up. The quality of customer who comes to us via MontgomeryCountyMD.com is the best. People know about us and what we do before arriving at our door! I am very pleased by the results being generated by our site. It is not often that my expectations are exceeded but MontgomeryCountyMD.com has impressed me!

We wanted to write and let you know how excited we are about the two web listings you created for our two businesses on your LoudounCounty.COM site. Both of our listings had been up for just 48 hours when we began receiving phone calls and e-mails about our merchandise and mailing list!
Today, we received the first phone order generated from our listing and our site
is not even up a week yet! We are delighted and pleasantly surprised by how quickly
customers have responded to our merchandise. We felt comfortable with Kirk right away and
decided (that day) to list with AreaGuides.COM. We're glad we didn't hesitate as our
listings have already "grown our business" to use a common phrase. We will
continue to refer all our business friends to AreaGuides.COM and we thank you for
providing such a resourceful Loudoun County website.

Subject: MANY THANKS

.......Just a note to thank your staff at areaguides.com. After spending thousands of dollars building a web site for our company with another vender (unfortunately we didn't know you existed at the time) we have received more "HITS" from fairfaxcountyva.com and princewilliamcounty.com than any other advertising we have done, not to mention for a fraction of the cost. I was amazed when we received numerous orders within 48 hours after signing up. You can count on The Supply Cabinet to re-up for the next 10 years. All I can say is "KUDOS" to you folks at areaguides.com. Keep up the great work!
VP of Marketing
The Supply Cabinet
This is from the owner of Scarlet O'Haira's. Received July 30,
Her address is www.loudouncounty.com/salon/scarlet.htm
"Within our first week of being listed on LoudounCounty.Com I personally received and made appointments for two new clients who found us on the guide. Since then we have had had great success. One women even drives all the way from Mannassas to pick up some of our unique hair care products. The one that stands out the most is a lady living in California who found us "on-line." She was searching for a unique gift for her mother who lives in Purceville. She called and bought a gift certificate for $100 worth of "pampering"! Her mother is now a regular client. The best thing is with all this new business, we have paid for our sight in just a few short months.
Thanks for everything! Scarlet Lovell"

I just got another booking today from a person who saw our website on annearundelcounty.com and went out of his way to say that it is an outstanding site and that the site is specifically why he decided to call our Bed and Breakfast.
In fact, this has become routine. Instead of getting 60 percent of our business from the net as is the norm for B&Bs with websites (not just listings), I think we are closer to 85 percent.
This has been especially important in helping us build our mid-week business because corporate travelers seem to get their information exclusively from the Internet. And there are also lots of retirees who can travel mid-week and who love the Internet.
Thanks to you.

Webmaster's Note: Tricia, the thanks for our success goes to people like you! Without your support and participation in the site AnneArundelCounty.com wouldn't be the busy place that it is. Last month, for example, the site generated more than 185,000 hits. This is due, in large part, to quality content such as your page. Thanks for helping us make this happen. After all, this site is your community on the 'net.

Hi, Dennis! Just wanted to let you know how quickly we received a referral from
our brand new webpage. It
went up over the weekend, and Monday morning we did a quote for someone who saw us
on www.princewilliamcounty.com! We are definitely jazzed!

To whom it may concern,
Recently I booked a flight with an airline that I had never heard of before. The flight was scheduled to depart from BWI airport. I wanted to know exactly where the gate location was before arriving at the airport for an early morning departure. After several unsuccessful attempts [on other websites], I was able to locate BWI's website by using Areaguides/cityofBaltimore's website [URL:BaltimoreCountyMD.com] . Your service has become an invaluable part of my internet search process. Thanks for your service to the community.
Webmaster's Note: It seems that ease of use and real web content are not often found on the Internet. I'm pleased our AreaGuides.com Network is the exception.

Just wanted to let you know that I've started getting feedback on my Loudouncounty.com (http://loudouncounty.com/home/mortgage.htm) website. Every deal I close pays for my website for at least seven years. Its so worth it. Thanks. I'll be in touch.
Vince acted fast and possess the #1 listing in the Mortgage
category...and just look at the results!
