Since its original launch in 2000, the business directory known then as "Justoffbase" but more lately as Offbase.uk has remained extremely popular as a local interest site showing businesses, places of interest and events local to RAF Mildenhall and RAF Lakenheath, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
The ever changing members of US military stationed here have always used the site to get a feel of what this sleepy part of Suffolk has to offer both on a business and personal level. Whilst the Internet has changed alot over all these years, it's still hard to get a feel of a "local area" and the businesses that are most interested in making contact with the visiting forces, USAF.
To that end, the relaunched "Offbase" site now lists ALL businesses in Suffolk at our free entry level advert page. To gain extra exposure to that general interest traffic, businesses can elect to upgrade their advert page, personal ads also remain free of charge! Even if you cannot trade with the military members or their families, an ad with us will still get many views from people searching around the local area, plane spotters looking for accommodation to temporary "on base" workers and suppliers all add to the "buzz" of this unusual locality.
Reasons to Upgrade a Business Ad?
Upgraded ads get around 20 times more traffic than free ads! This gives your local business a far higher profile right through the directory, for the following reasons..
1. Upgraded ads are shown "Featured Companies" section that appears as a graphical banner on the home page and as text and graphical banner on ALL navigation pages, this alone raises profile and builds brand recognition throughout the site.
2. The upgraded ad can carry up to 10 images for price lists, menus or rate cards, example of work done or shop fronts for easy recognition on street.
3. Upgraded ads can show in 2 categories instead of just one, very often just being listed in the "higher category" will bring significantly more traffic to that ad.
4. A web site friendly link, this will help your own website to perform better in the search engines, therefore improving its ranking.
