Website Sponsor Opportunities

Are you interested in becoming a website sponsor like the businesses at the bottom of this page?

If so, it is a tremendous value.  at only $600 per year (pro rated at $50 per month if signing up mid year), you logo with a link back to your website will be located at the bottom of every page on our website.

In August, there were 3091 page views with 2059 unique page viewers on the PBA website.  And that number continues to grow month over month.  So for $50 per month, your add will be in front of 2,000 to 3,000 sets of eyes!  In the digital marketing world, that is a great value.

Then there is an SEO help to your website as well.  With your membership, you get a listing with one link back to your website.  This is a great value for the relatively low cost of a PBA membership.  But as a website sponsor, you will have a link back to your site on EVERY page on our website, including blog posts.  So that is at least 75 additional links and growing as we grow the page and blogs.  Another great value at $600 for the year.

If you are interested, please reach out to the committee chair, Jerry Nicklow at 410-647-1111 or email Jerry@huffinsurance.com.

And if you notice, Jerry;s company, Huff Insurance, is a website sponsor and has been for several years.  So he believes in the value and so should you.

    PBA TEch Tip  -Web Listing 

    When you enter your website address (or any other link- like social media sites) remember to put in the www. before the site. If you do not, then the website sill not be a clickable link. You want the listing to have a clickable link to make it easier for potential customers to click to your site. See the two examples below from the Huff Insurance listings. Top one is not clickable and bottom on is. Let us know if you have any questions on the functionality of the PBA website. Visit https://pasadenabusinessassociation.com/directory and log in to make changes to your directory listing.

    Hello PBA Members.

    Did you know you can ad your logo and profile photo to your online PBA listing?

    Adding these to your listing really makes it stand out in the directory search on our website.

    Take a look at the listing for Atlantic Coast Charters. You can search your listing at https://pasadenabusinessassociation.com/directory .

    If you need a walk through to see how to add a logo and profile image, please comment or email the PBA and we will get back to you or create a how to video for you to follow.

    Please make sure tour information is up to date on the web listings. We use this information for the printed directory, which will be printed in the next few months

    Happy new year everyone.  The PBA is excited to bring in he new year and we are looking to make our monthly meetings more valuable for you.

    In order to do so, we need to get your help.  If you can take a few minutes to complete the following poll, we would greatly appreciate it.

    https://pasadenabusinessassociation.com/Sys/Poll/11265

    The poll is for PBA members, so you must be logged into the website in order to take the poll.

    If you are not a member and want to give your feedback, here is a photo which contains the questions on the poll.  You can give your feedback by posting a comment to this blog.

    Our goal is to make the presentations at our monthly meetings be on topics that you want to hear about or learn about.  So your feedback is important for us to have as we are planning out our 2020 meeting schedule.

    Thank you and have a great day.

    It has come to our attention that an email was recently sent to some of our members with a PDF attachment that looked to be from the PBA.  

    We want to advise that this was not sent from the PBA and the attached PDF may be harmful to your computer if clicked.

    As you can see from the photo below, the email address that the message was sent from was not the PBA email address of PasadenaBusinessAssociation1@Verizon.net

    When getting any suspicious emails, please be diligent about looking it over before clicking on any attachments or links.  Some of the largest cyber breaches have started with an erroneous click of an email.

    The above video walks through some things to look for when reviewing an email's authenticity.  Although it is not a catch all, it can be helpful to identify potentially damaging emails.

    If you have any questions on this subject or any other website and technology issues, please feel free to give me a call at 410-647-1111 or shoot me an email at jerry@huffinsurance.com.

    Hello PBA members.  We have had several folks ask us how the following question.  How do I update my PBA online listing?  So I thought it would be a good idea to make a short instructional video to walk you through the process.  So if you are unsure on how to update your listing, take a look at this video.

    And as always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me by email at Jerry@Huffinsurance.com or by phone at 410-647-1111.
