Frequently Asked Questions.
How do I add my company?
Click here to contact us. Our editors will review your company or brand to see if we are a great fit. If so, we’ll work with you to add a beautiful profile. And, it is editorial. So, it is no charge.
How much does it cost?
Editorial is no charge with no advertising requirement. All approved companies may upgrade to one of our sponsor packages for as little as $16 per month to get regularly featured posts, sponsorship & other amenities. But, upgrading is not required in order to keep your complimentary profile.
Is upgrading required?
No! Your profile is editorial. And, publications should never charge for editorial. But, we have priced the sponsor upgrades so they fit into any size company budget. And, there are only 16 sponsor slots per front page & category. So, if you want one, it is best to get one as soon as possible.
What are your criteria?
We’re looking for the best luxury companies & brands based or represented in the Myrtle Beach & Grand Strand area. National luxury products are welcome, especially if you have Authorized Dealers in the area or within a reasonable travel distance. We want to see quality in every detail of your business, products, services, locations, web site & social media presence.
If not approved, can I upgrade anyway?
No company can buy their way onto the network. Every company must meet our standards.
Why should I upgrade?
Get the absolute best coverage on our network for as little as $16 per month. Where else can you get the highest quality design & prestigious sponsor placement for such a small investment. And, we give you monthly features to give you an active presence which is so incredibly important online. Clients regularly seeing new information from a brand has always been a cornerstone of any good marketing plan.
Can I be on more than one site?
Absolutely. As long as your company fits with the topic of the site, our editors will be glad to consider you for editorial coverage on that site.
Where are you based?
Our founders have been in the Grand Strand area since the early 70’s and have had publications & career sites covering the Grand Strand since 1998. We also have sites in North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee & every other state as well as publications all over the world.
What other networks do you own?
We’ve been developing web publications since 1997. Our investors and developers are the founders of over 1,000 other sites and networks including AutomotiveMVP, AerospaceMVP, BusinessMVP, CareerMVP, FashionMVP, HomeMVP, HospitalityMVP, MyrtleBeachMVP, MyrtleBeachCareers, InteriorDesignVIP and hundreds others.
What are your credentials?
The web is littered with overnight gurus who claim to know what they are doing. Yet, their portfolio of work clearly shows they do not. Our Founder, Chris Sparks, has his BSBA in Marketing & MBA from the Bryan School of Business at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. And, he has 30+ years in business & 20+ years in online business working with thousands of the top brands in the world. Since 1997, he has developed thousands of web publications & projects. And, he still owns & manages over 1,000 online publications, most of which are 15 – 20 years old.
Do you work with Ad Agencies & PR Firms?
Absolutely! Since we started in 1997, agencies have been a cornerstone of our business. And, we have always paid a much higher commission than the industry standard. You’ve already done the business development. Why shouldn’t you get paid at a level deserving of your work?
Do you offer Ad Agency or PR Services?
No. That is a complete conflict of interest for any publication to offer Ad Agency or PR Firm services. But, we are always glad to refer the companies we know to our favorite Ad Agencies & PR Firms.
Do you build web sites for brands?
No. But, we will be glad to refer you to a respected agency who does. Our design team is exclusively committed to providing our sponsor brands with the best designs on our networks. And, we believe that all brands big & small should have a dedicated team who specializes in web design & online marketing. And that team should have marketing, design & technology credentials & a portfolio worthy of your brand.
