Make Waves Online With ActiveActivities
The what, the why and the ripple effect
FREE LISTING PAGE
Attract clients while you sleep.
ActiveActivities is an online marketplace attracting 2.5 million visitors each year. Your listing page is your virtual shopfront; where ActiveActivities visitors get to meet and greet you. It gives you the ability to introduce yourself with a detailed blurb, list business categories that best describe your product or service, add the suburb you do business in, pictures, a link to your own website and of course, your logo.
You can also upload a number of useful content pieces in the form of blogs, articles and news bites to enhance your credibility and position you as an industry expert. With a Free Listing, your ActiveActivities exposure is low, but it’s an easy way to market your business online for little effort.
FEATURED LISTING PAGE
Attract EVEN MORE clients while you sleep.
A Featured Listing page gives you access to everything that is available to Free Business Listings PLUS MORE. Featured Listings get access to extra tools, features and functionalities (that are locked for Free Listings) to optimise your online presence and increase your listing ranking within the ActiveActivities website.
Featured Listings get an AD FREE page so do not compete with other businesses for customers and can get up to 16 times more leads than Free Listings. As well as images, Featured Listings can add promotional videos, embed social media feeds (Facebook and Twitter) and link to social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Featured Listings are promoted on Free listing pages (i.e your competitors’ listings) for enhanced exposure.
Customer connections. Be seen in more suburbs.
If you want new business, you need to be seen in more places. Your coverage defines how many ActiveActivities search pages your business is seen on. It is based on the number of suburbs you select when setting up your listing AND the categories you assign your business to.
Free Listings can assign only one suburb (their actual place of business) and a limited number of categories, but Featured Listings can include up to 30 surrounding suburbs. For each new relevant location and category you add to your listing, your business is seen on an increased number of search results pages. More visibility equals more potential customer contact and interaction.
Enhanced ranking within ActiveActivities.
SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is still considered to be a complex and therefore advanced game for many businesses. But we can help. Our platform has been designed with the highest level of SEO knowledge, strategy and expertise. By listing your business on ActiveActivities you are leveraging our SEO-enhanced performance platform to improve your brand and business' visibility. That's why so many businesses trust us to promote their business.
Free Listings will benefit, but have the lowest rankings amongst businesses on our site. Featured listings have the greatest visibility with an improved ActiveActivities ranking and extra exposure across the ActiveActivities site, specifically in the right column of our Search Result Pages, resources, blogs and on the homepage. All this equates to greater visibility online which equals more potential customer contact and interaction.
Our Special Offer feature allows both Free and Featured listed business owners the opportunity to add a free first lesson, a 2-for-1 deal, 50% off voucher or another special offer you think could make you irresistible to new business.
This gives site visitors an extra incentive to contact you direct and improves your chances of converting visitors to paying customers. Our instant email alerts and monthly newsletters will ensure that our ActiveActivities visitors in your local area of business are informed about your special offer and can take advantage of it.
INSTANT COMMUNITY ALERTS
Target local visitors with instant email notification.
As well as being able to add special offers to your listing page, ActiveActivities will alert our visitors in your local area that your new special offer is available for them to take advantage of. Once the new offer is uploaded, customers in your local suburb of business will be notified via email.
Special Offers on Featured Listings will be sent to even more visitors thanks to the coverage functionality. These same special offers will also be included in our monthly newsletters for both Free and Featured Listings.
Power in numbers. Full transparency.
Free and Featured Listings receive monthly reports itemising exactly how many new customers ActiveActivities has sent your way in the form of Leads, how many Visitors have viewed your listing online, the number of Impressions your listing received, how you Ranked against other Business Listings in your categories, and other important statistics.
But you don’t need to wait for the monthly report. Access your ActiveActivities statistics any time from your password protected Business Members Area. The numbers are always accurate and up-to-date, which means you can always keep track of your ActiveActivities listing business benefits.
Content is king. Be the expert.
If new customers were honey bees, then adding useful, practical and interesting content to your listing would be your online business honey pot. Uploading content in the form of blogs, articles or news bites (new or rehashed) will lift your site ranking and increase the amount of traffic you’ll receive through us at ActiveActivities.
Adding content to your listing positions you as an expert; showcases your knowledge and experience; and builds trust between you and potential new customers. People will always do business with people that they both like and trust.
Promote your business events. Raise brand profile.
ActiveActivities allows you to add events to your Business Listing page so potential customers can be made aware of weekly, monthly or annual happenings, or one-off special events you want to promote.
When you add an event to your Business Listing page, it will also become visible on our search results pages, featured events pages across the site and the events area of the website. All these extra placements of your brand means greater opportunity for potential customers to find you online.

Accountability. Be the best business you can be.
We want you to get the highest number of customers possible from your ActiveActivities listing so we keep business owners accountable with a completion score. Your completion score indicates the extent to which your listing is optimised to attract new business. A greater % completion score will help you rank higher on our search result pages too.
For Free Listings, the maximum completion score you can reach is less than that for Featured Listings. The extra functionality and features that upgraded Featured Listings can access enable them to reach 100% completion score. This positions you as a top ranking businesses on our site.

We provide a Business Members Area (BMA) for all ActiveActivities listed business owners. It is where you go to:

- Add special offers;

The BMA also gives you accurate and up-to-date information about:
- Leads (number of new customers);

Marry it with Expert Contributions to provide professional advice and boost trust as well as a special offer for new customers and your irresistibility factor will improve for better online results.Select your package Compare all features
IMAGES & VIDEO
Tell your story without words.
Images tell a story, quickly. They hook people emotionally and inspire them energetically. They bring words alive and motivate people to take action. Uploading additional images will enhance your listing, engage potential customers and enhance your brand visibility. Even better in the current climate is a video.
People love videos because they’re easy to use and can tell your story in a way no other medium can. Videos encourage engagement and contact which in turn can improve lead generation and revenue. Get ahead of your competitors and improve your brand visibility with video.
The key to building trust FAST.
Testimonials are one of the most powerful business conversion tools for online marketing. ActiveActivities encourages you to invite your happy customers to add a review to your Business Listing. We also give you the ability to respond to those who take the time to write you a testimonial, which further increases engagement between you and your brand fans.
Even one testimonial will improve your potential for converting prospective customers to being newly paying customers. We recommend, however, that you aim for a minimum of three. Go get ‘em!
