*What is a portal?
*How can you claim to be the number 1 dedicated pub and bar portal in London?
Secondly, those claiming to be portals are not "dedicated" to pubs and bars in London. They also list hotels, restaurants, shops, advertising etc. Many are free and are still worth listing your pub or bar with, but we wouldn't recommend them as an online business solution on their own.
Thirdly, Alexa , a website that ranks millions of websites worldwide ranks citypublife at 81,767. (January 2004,) This doesn't seem to say much on the face of it but when you consider that it ranks sites over 16,600,000 websites based on unique visitors, number of pages visited per user and that we are in the top 0.5% it begins to mean something. There is not another dedicated pub and bar portal for London ranked higher.
*What is the purpose of Citypublife?
*What else can it do?
*What do the Green and Blue Buttons mean?
*Why do you need the Blue Sub Menu Buttons?
*The areas on the map are large. How do I narrow the search area?
So how do I navigate around the pub and bar portal?
Now that you've made your choice simply click the Get Pubs Button. This will send a message to the database to return all of the pubs and bars in NW London on our database that have a Karaoke on Friday. Choose one from Hendon and click on the pub or bar name.
*Wow! That's cool, now what?
*What is the purpose of the Green Searches Button?
*And the Green Artist Button ?
*Why is the portal built in Macromedia Flash?
*I always thought Flash was slower?
What also helps the speed is that we don't allow advertising, banners; pop-ups etc that can slow download time.
*What are the advantages of Citypublife Newsletters?
*I've been using the site quite a lot and have recently found that you have surrounded the portal with HTML pages. Why is that?
*I found a pub listed last week but it's not there anymore. Why?
*Don't you lose money doing that?
*How often are the pages in the portal updated?
*What is the cost to include pub and bar information on the portal?
*You mean they pretty much get a whole website for just £230 for the first year? With promotion too? What's the catch?
*How do pubs and bars pay?
*How do you make money then?
Do people actually visit the pubs and bars that are promoted on citypublife?
*Most people wouldn't dare publish their statistics, why do you do it?
Our answer to that is, if their promotion doesn't work for them, we don't want to take their money. I once heard something that has stayed with me for many years, it sounds corny but it is the core of our business philosophy.
"Success at the service of others, not at the expense of others".
We even give them a formula to take their statistics and calculate Return On Investment, using their own numbers. If it doesn't work, cancel the listing.
*How many have cancelled the service so far?
*What is Live Help?
*So where does it all go from here?
