Value Proposition

BoatXchg.com Online Resource Directory provides value to our user community by offering a search engine covering a comprehensive database of over 850 suppliers, service providers, and other resources supporting the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of antique and classic boats.

We provide value to our Listing Owners by creating for them either an initial or an additional Web presence, and then by driving potential customers to those businesses. Many of our listings do not have a Website or even a social media presence. For those businesses, a listing in boatXchg.com puts them on the Internet and makes their information available to potential customers, allowing them to compete with those businesses already having a Web presence. For those businesses that already have their own Website, boatXchg.com provides an additional avenue for potential customers to find their businesses using a search engine that is specifically and exclusively devoted to the antique and classic boating community.

Our purpose with regard to our Listing Owners is to attract users to the boatXchg.com Website, help them to find and open your listing, allow them to click through to your Website, or otherwise contact you, thereby giving you an opportunity to convert them to customers.

Descriptions of the options available to you as a boatXchg.com Listing Owner are provided below, along with current pricing for each component.

To learn how to take maximum advantage of your boatXchg.com listing, contact Stephen D. Griffitts, Editor, at editor@boatxchg.com.
