The 2Hulls "For The Trade"
(This Program is for
both multihull and monohull trade members)
Many of you have asked
that we use the power of our very popular web site to help promote and
grow your businesses. Our website has to be one of the better, if not
the best, multihull sales and service web sites out there. And our
statistics show the results. Furthermore,
much of this program should be attractive not just to the multihull
trade but also to the monohull trade. Our mailing list alone can and
will support both worlds.
So we have set up a two
tiered program to help you, and us, use the power of our marketing.
Please read the whole page to understand the full impact of what we are
doing for you ... and for us.
Reciprocal Links Program
We've put up what we
think is the best reciprocal links system going. It's easy to use and
maintain your links. And it will become one of the most comprehensive
links list for the trade out there.
Our goals with the
Reciprocal Links Program are:
1 - Popularity ... First
and foremost we want to increase both your and our search engine
popularity rankings. As you probably know, most of the search engine
placement tricks don't work anymore. Those tricks can even get you
banned from a search engine. Content & Popularity have become all
important to your search rankings. We can't help with your content but
we sure can with your popularity.
2 - Traffic ... We think
you'll see an increase in traffic, particularly well qualified traffic,
to your website and to ours. And that's what web marketing is about. Not
just traffic but also well qualified traffic.
This program is open to
everyone and is easy to do. So go do it now but don't forget to come
back here to read about our 2Hulls Associates Program for marketing and
sales well beyond a links program alone. We also want you to send us a
bit of information in the form at the bottom of the page.

about the second, and most important program.
2Hulls Associates Program
We've had an informal
Associates program for awhile. And it has done well for those in it. We
are now expanding it to include more of you. Here are the details.
1 - We'll put you on the
appropriate Associates page with a short description about you.
2 - Then your
description will link to an Associate Specific page specific which we
will build from your web text and images. That page will point out the
highlights of what you do and contain a short form at the bottom. Please
do not submit the form at the bottom.
3 - When the form is
submitted, our server will automatically forward it to both of us.
You've got some qualified prospect information immediately. The
Associate Specific page makes it clear that another page, the Associates
Form Response page, is going to pop up to give the prospect all of your
contact information and a link to your web site. The prospect has almost
That's it but what's the
catch? There are several.
We want need a fee from
Associates except for those whose trade ethics preclude a fee like
marine surveyors and maybe documentation agents. That fee should be
reasonable and you have a place in the form below to indicate what
When you consider what
these fees should be, please think about the following.
...... Most of the people
who use one of our Associates end up calling us for
support and hand-holding ... and we do our
best to give them that support.
...... We will be using
our +10,000, opt-in mailing list, at our
option, to further promote our Associate's services. You might even want
us to do a mailing to make them a special offer. We can talk about that
when you need one done.
...... As new associates
come aboard, you will be mentioned on what may be the most popular page
in our web site - The Latest page.
...... And more like
mentioning you when we are talking to clients, or showing boats on our
dock, or whenever and whatever. The point this is a
marketing program, not just a referral program!
Once again you may want to see our reach by reviewing our
Better yet - these fees
are not a one way street. We will pay you 10%
of any commission received by 2Hulls for a referral that results in a
sale of a boat to someone not already in our data base. We suspect that
many of you will make more money on these referrals to us than we make
on any fees you pay us. Please note that your fees are on the honor
basis. You will need to keep track of who we sent you to keep up with
this. Please do so on a timely basis.
Finally, in closing, we
need to make the point that we believe that 2Hulls has developed a
reputation for dealing openly, informatively, directly and honestly. We
tell our clients that our Associates are committed to the same and that
our Associates will treat our clients with special care and attention.
In some cases, you may even want to give those clients a special deal
but that is up to you.
We hope this has been
informative and simple, and that we will all benefit. We thank you for
reading this. If you are interested in being a 2Hulls Associate, please
