Freelance Online Sales - Digital Advertising


Freelance Digital Advertising Sales – French Tourism website

Buddy Web Designs owns and operates a French tourism directory website www.voyageafriquedusud.co.za. We are looking for freelance digital advertising sales consultants with access to the internet. Marketing material is available to the right candidates.

The website focuses on Travel and Holiday Accommodation in Southern Africa (South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Botswana and Zimbabwe).

A digital listing involves a special category listing as well as a mini website in French on the website www.voyageafriquedusud.co.za

A .com domain has been registered to target visitors from French speaking countries.

 Categories will mainly include:

  • Accommodation establishments
  • Vehicle rental
  • Camper rental
  • Tour operators
  • Safari guides
  • Specialist safari operators

SEO Strategy

SEO refers to Search Engine Optimisation, a discipline which Buddy Web Design is well versed with. Potential advertisers will want to know what traffic the websites gets or will be getting. 

 SEO is a marketing strategy to market your website via Search Engines likes Google, Yahoo or Bing. In short it attempts to get a website on page 1 of Google for relative search terms. The tourism industry is very competitive for page 1 exposure on search engines like Google which is often dominated by Tourism directories.

We will attempt to do the same in the French language which is an official language in more than 29 countries spoken by more than 150 million people worldwide.

We will register a .com domain and or .fr domain to better deliver search results to the international market.

Doing something different and unique is the most common and successful on-site SEO strategy. Off-site SEO refers to having quality websites link to your website. By having a complete travel website on Southern Africa in French we hope that quality websites will automatically link to our website. Initially this might entail actively seeking for links and informing webmasters of the existence of our niche travel website.

Businesses who list on our website will get a link to their websites from their mini French website

For directories to be successful they further need to comprehensive and viewed as an authority on a particular subject. We will get the critical mass by offering an aggressive, too good to ignore offer.

We will keep up with On-Site SEO by adding unique, relevant and fresh content related to travel and accommodation in Southern Africa to the website

  • The website is in the public domain meaning it is very clear and easy to understand what is being offered. (View examples here : http://www.voyageafriquedusud.co.za/wbusiness.php )
  • The listing will besides a mini website in French include a link to the clients own website. This will constitute a quality back link to the clients own website which will directly benefit their website in terms of SEO. This alone will justify the once off listing fee of R990
