The vast majority of those new submissions come from SEO Agencies. I guess they saw the worth of lodging their client sites to a long established and recognised Australian website directory :)
And while all of that is great... in an imperfect world, we found a VERY significant portion required manual correction to ensure the listing (among other things):
In early 2014, the volume of "corrections" grew so much it was impossible to continue the "free" service. Sometimes 2 or more hours of "corrections" were needed on a busy day... each day of the week LOL
So we implemented a paid submission model.
This means a single rate is payable through PayPal, to cover the time in manually reviewing each listing and editing it as needed - which we still do!
I don't expect that agencies should need pay the full amount. I am quite happy to personally discuss your needs, and we can organise something to reflect the volume of submissions you wish to place :)
The current options for SEO Agencies are:
(the discount offered is relative to the volume)
If your agency is registered for options 2 or 3 you receive a unique agency password which allows you to continue entering submissions as easily. A bonus - they go LIVE immediately - but they still get reviewed LOL :)
To establish this, an Agency representative DOES need to email me on stephen @ comeonaussie.net
I need to know your full Agency details (name, phone, address etc) and your anticipated (monthly) volume of submissions to Come On Aussie.
We can then decide on a reasonable option for your agency, and I'll forward a PayPal invoice to get things started :)
To your success
