Directory Advertising on Paphos Life

 

Directory and Event Listings

 

The Paphos Life Directory and Events Page are a new resource for companies to connect with their customers. Paphos Life appeals to a mix of Cyprus residents and people from the UK with properties in Cyprus, as well as people who just love the place.

It has an active forum (over 12,000 page views per day), and one of the aims of the directory is to assist members who are giving help. So if somebody asks for an opticians, we can provide a link to either the Opticians directory, or a specific business in the directory.

The directory is map based. All entries have a location viewable on the map. Don't worry though, if your business is a service without a location. Just tell us roughly where you are based and we will do the rest.

A basic listing in the directory is free to all people with a business in the region of Paphos. There are also paid for options which make your listing stand out more. For instance, if you opt for the silver package, you can include a slideshow in your listing. We include an example below.

If you want maximum exposure to your customers, you should also take a look at banner advertising on Paphos Life. This combines the best available directory listing format with high visibility site-wide banners.

 

Sample Slidehow

 

We don't expect you to program your own slideshow. All you do is supply us with the images and text, and we will do the rest. The same is true for every other aspect of your advert.

Incidentally, if you are thinking of including a slideshow full of text, like our example, we don't recommend it. Text in graphics isn't readable by search engines and screen readers. We only did this because it is an example, and because the data is repeated here anyway.

Listing Types

Basic Entry
Free for businesses and events

Basic directory and event entries are completely free.

  • Displays contact information
  • Company / Event shown on map.
  • Basic Description
  • Get listed in multiple categories.

Every entry has a map location. If you are offering a service, rather than a physical building, then we will show your home town, so you will still be visible. For events, you should specify the venue. We have a growing database of venues, and they have directions, contact information and map locations.

Listings can show in multiple categories. However, you should say what your PRIME category is.Your prime category decides your map icon. So a DIY shop that sells flowers, will be visible in the DIY and Gardening section, but will always show the DIY map icon.

Bronze Entry
Custom thumbnail and masthead, plus desription

Bronze ads let your business or event stand out for the minimum cost.

  • Custom thumbnail image (320px wide by 208px high)
  • Custom masthead image (910px wide by 332px high)
    The masthead image is the same size as a facebook masthead, so if you want to be consistent you can just use that.
  • Basic description, which can include another image.
  • Enanced Opening Times Display
    Also, if you tell us the store opening times, if appropriate, we will provide you with a smart opening time display.
Silver + Entry

Polemi Concentration Camp

As you approach Polemi from the B7, you pass the Kamanterena Winery on your right. Just beyond that, if you are paying attention, you will see a lookout tower that wouldn't look out of place on a WW2 movie. A couple of ancient armoured vehicles might also perk your interest, so pull over, and take a look at Polemi Concentration Camp.

Ayia Napa Sculpture Park

The Sculpture Park in Ayia Napa was built in 2014, and since then has been delighting tourists and locals alike with its eclectic range of art work. Last summer we visited the area and had to include it on our itinerary. What started as an orderly photo shoot soon descended into an excited clamber along the many paths that criss-cross the landscape of the park. Far too numerous to feature them all, we present some of the many weird and wonderful sculptures you can see when you visit this wonderful park.

A short walk through the countryside around Kallepia

Now that we are getting the occasional dry day again we thought it time we started our selection of blogs on walks in and around the countryside of Paphos. For our first excursion we are visiting the village of Kallepia, situated near the Ezousa Valley and Minthis Hills Golf Course.

Ezousa Estuary

A couple of years ago we stumbled across a sad little memorial at the mouth of the Ezousa River. We thought we would check it out again a few days ago, to see what the area looked like after the rains. The question was, how would we get to it?
