as-seen-onWe show up on Google, Yahoo and Bing over and over again for lots of different food/drink/restaurant related search terms for Victoria.

Our site is also listed in 674 online directories and has link exchanges with many other food/drink and Vancouver Island related websites.

As a result, we’re the most visited restaurant guide of Vancouver Island and get TONS of traffic form people actively looking for places to Eat, Drink  and things to Do in Victoria.

2) Traditional Advertising Like The Yellow Pages And Local Print Magazines Just Aren’t As Effective Anymore



Here are the facts:

  • 87% of online users depend on the Internet to access local information
  • Small businesses that use the Internet to promote and sell their goods and services have grown 46% faster over the past two years than those who didn’t
  • Each week, 63% of Canadian smart-phone users look for a local business and 53% of them will make a purchase locally

But you don’t need to hear from us how big online advertising is – just look around. Many people are using their mobile phone during their entire stay at your restaurant.

If you’re not advertising where people can find you online with their computer, laptop or mobile phone, you are LOSING REAL CUSTOMERS EACH AND EVERY DAY.

So stop wasting your time and money with outdated and expensive print advertising.

Advertising online with helps you reach the customers you can’t reach anymore with traditional offline media.

7) You Stand Out From The Competition

You’ve got competition in your business and you’re all battling for local AND tourist dollars.

But there’s only so much money to go around.

For example, let’s take a look at the competition you’re up against with traditional offline advertising.

An ad in the Restaurant Section of the 2014 Telus Victoria Area Yellow Pages competes against 55 pages overflowing with 497 other ads!

Many of them with mammoth budgets paying for full page color ads. Ouch!

Now compare that to the ad spots available on We strictly limit how many advertisers we accept at any one time because we want you to get the best bang for your advertising buck.

Instead of getting lost in an overcrowded sea of ads, you experience much less competition for the attention of your potential customers. Your ad stands out and WILL get seen!

8) It’s Effective, Low Cost Advertising
That Won’t Break Your Budget

Advertising on costs less and is more affordable than local newspapers, seasonal booklets, yellow pages and other conventional print advertising.

For example…. an ad on the back of a BC Transit bus starts at $7,008 and goes up to $11,088 a year.

An ad in the local Victoria Times Colonist starts at $3,840 and goes up to $5,760 a year.

But you can get started with for a lot, lot less………
