Fishing team Adventure Antigua is once again planning a trip all the way down to Nevis to take part for the third time in their annual fishing tournament. Each year our team clears customs and immigration here in Antigua and sets off for the Nevis tournament with hopes of bringing the big trophy home. The first year we finished second there and last year we placed third missing second by 2 lbs.
Usually there are about 25 to 30 boats from the nearby islands, and for the past few years it has been St. Kitts and Nevis who have kept the winning trophy in their country. Its going to come to Antigua if Team Adventure Antigua has anything to do with it, but going to the event and representing Antigua and Barbuda is an expensive endeavour.
As its only a one day tournament the expenses are not going to be too terrible, but the fuel costs of getting there and back are significant. We are currently looking for sponsorship that could help cover our costs for this tournament. In our last tournament we were called Team Xtreme Caribbean Real Estate thanks to sponsorship from JHR Caribbean. We gave them a little banner ad on our blog for three months as a thank you for their support. I know that many referral hits went from our blog to their site, and trust that helping us worked well for them. We are looking for help once again, so if you are reading this and have any ideas of websites that could use a little extra traffic please put us in touch. On average we get 200 hits per day with all sorts of google searches reaching our blog pages. Remember we have one year of pages each with its own tags and content. A blog is unlike a typical website because each entry is a page of content that search engines can use. I check my stat counter info and see all the searches people google to get to us. Its not just on things related to Antigua either. Do a search for the famous hat company tilly by googling "tilly hats on boats" or maybe "Hurricanes and Jolly Harbour" or even "shark attacks in antigua". The list of key words that eventually bring people to our blog is growing and growing every time i write, and there is plenty opportunity of referral business for some of the traffic to be refereed your way. Anyway, if you are reading this and not interested in all this blatant business talk then come back tomorrow and something more like my other blogs will be back up, but if you are interested in getting some extra traffic to your site, please email me at elifuller (at) hotmail (dot) com . Thanks, eli.
