Thanks for visiting EXPLORE VIRGINIA! If this is your first time on the site, get ready for an elegant and informative journey throughout hundreds of Virginia communities and thousands of their businesses. If you’re a business owner in Virginia, and supportive of your local chamber, we will display your contact information and link your website for no charge. Below is additional information along with digital brochures that display all the communities in Virginia we serve, and more information you’ll want to read.
HOW IT WORKS
It’s very simple. For no charge we have uploaded over 35,000 Virginia chamber members to 300+ community specific landing pages. Within a few months, this number will surpass 400 communities and 50,000 businesses. Each landing page offers visitors easy access to area restaurants, hotels, shopping, real estate, community history, and even a weather forecast. Every business listing is geo-plotted and linked to its website or Facebook page. Our only request from our chamber friends is their willingness to link us to their website if we are to continue liking them to ours.
You have probably seen our billboards, heard our radio spots, or spotted our links to great websites like Culture Map, Texas Monthly, and many others. Below are links to our radio spots. Our marketing commitment is just beginning and will increase dramatically as the months unfold.
OUR “EXPLORE” DOMAINS
Each community receives a new domain beginning with the word, EXPLORE, and you will find your town in our domain brochure below. Each domain is a shortcut, or redirect, to the landing page of your choice. This is a big part of our branding strategy because a visit to your community’s domain, is a visit to www.OurTexasTown.com. Our only request is if a business owner wishes us to continue to link their website from our website, we ask you to return the favor. If you refuse, we will not remove your complementary business listing, but we will discontinue the link. It’s good for everybody when cross-linking occurs and we believe thousands of inbound links will help the OUR TEXAS TOWN brand grow exponentially.
Slideshow advertising is available at an extremely reasonable cost. Based on population, only 10-15 slides may appear on a slideshow and each slide appears randomly for 3 seconds. This means your slide will appear between 850,000-1,200,000 times per year and it remains linked to your website. Importantly, we insist on a balance of business categories so no more than 2-3 slides of any one category may appear on a slideshow. If interested, click on our rate guide below.
