You can submit to us the wording you would like or we can use wording from any existing ad copy of your company.

TrainWeb is able to make this offer at such a low price of only $50 for 50 words for two years because we wish to create a web resource that is as comprehensive as possible. Such a resource is of benefit to both ourselves and to all vendors and consumers in the rail community. This is also the reason why we provide free web addresses and directory entries to rail related businesses at TrainWeb. The $50 for 50 words for two years gives you a more descriptive entry on the web and offsets our cost of providing this service.

Level Three:

What Are Other Advantages?

Selecting any level of Web marketing beyond the free Level One option will place your company not just in the TrainWeb White and Yellow Pages, but also in the TrainWeb Rail Industry Directory. The TrainWeb Rail Industry Directory is actively promoted to the people that visit TrainWeb and is highly advertised in traditional rail publications as well as on the Internet World Wide Web. Thus, your business receives additional exposure value beyond the cost of placing your company on the web!

Selecting any paid level of Web marketing above also permits you to use a web address with or without the trailing ".html". For example, you can use the web address:


You may advertise your web address with or without the trailing ".html" as both web addresses will work for your company. You might prefer the shorter web address to reduce its size in your ad, to increase the font of the web address, or to reduce the audio time of reading the web address in a radio commercial.

Level Three Web Marketing and above allows you to post a lot more information about your company and your products or services than will fit in a conventional print ad. Continue to advertise as you are doing now, but include your web address in every ad. Use your print, radio or television ads to obtain the interest of your audience, but then use your web address to deliver the "rest of the story!" You can fit all the information into your web pages that cannot fit into other types of ads.

Do you wish to advertise in more places that you are doing now? Using a web address in your ads allows you to run smaller ads in many publications instead of a large ad in just a few publications. By moving much of the details about your products out of your ads and onto your web pages, you can reduce the size of your ads and afford to run them in many publications!

Keep in mind that with Web Marketing, you are presenting to a "follow-up" audience. Everyone that comes to your web pages have seen your web address elsewhere and made a conscious decision to come to your pages. They are interested in finding out more about your company and your products or services. They will carefully read what you present on your web pages and will be ready to order if you have what they are seeking.

Level Four Web Sites and above allow you to give your customers and prospects full background information about your company and a complete description of everything you offer. Without any printing costs you can provide your customers with on-line full-color flyers, brochures, catalogs, etc. Unlike printed information, a web site provides your customers with up-to-date dynamic information. You can get changes or new information to your customers quickly without the costly expense of printing and mailing!

Why Should I Use TrainWeb?

TrainWeb not only has the expertise to place your company onto the Internet World Wide Web, but also has an extensive understanding of the Rail Industry.

Come to TrainWeb where you will find web professionals with the background in rail needed to understand your business!

Vendors that select TrainWeb as their web provider benefit from cross-promotion. Every vendor that uses "http://trainweb.com/rail/yourcompany" in their advertising not only brings prospects to their own web page, but brings those prospects to Trainweb and exposes them to all the other vendors at TrainWeb. This is the basic "mall" concept where the traffic generated by each vendor benefits all vendors in the mall. Since TrainWeb is dedicated to trains, vendors in the rail business will benefit by locating in the TrainWeb Rail Industry Index much more than having their site just in a directory of general merchandise.

TrainWeb is also actively advertising in many rail related publications and maintains an ongoing publicity effort. Because rail played such a central role in the growth of this nation, America has always had a love affair with its trains. Current events has focused on recent rail mergers and funding of passenger rail travel is a hot political item. For these reasons, TrainWeb continues to receive its fair share of free exposure in the media. As a vendor at TrainWeb, your business benefits from the traffic generated by this publicity.

Survey of visitors to TrainWeb has shown that we get a great number of visits from overseas, especially from Europe, England, Australia and Japan. Visitors to the United States from these areas find it more natural to tour our country by rail than even Americans! Travel by rail in many of those areas is a natural mode of transportation and many of those travelers assume the same is true of the United States prior to their first visit. TrainWeb features an extensive resource on American rail travel which attracts visitors worldwide who are interested in American rail. TrainWeb brings these prospects from across the world to your door!

We have engaged in an extensive effort to make sure TrainWeb appears in every Web Directory and every Web Search Engine. By making sure that people looking for information on trains on the web find TrainWeb, we are making sure they find your company too. If you were not located at TrainWeb, you would have to engage in this extensive effort yourself to make sure that you are taking full advantage of having your company on the Internet World Wide Web.
