David Pinnegar BSc ARCS Grey haired dinosaur wizard whose work is often off the wall (like this page!) and unashamedly Netscape 1 compatible (yes he was around then) believing in sites that are pure information fast. He can market anything and provide sound marketing advice. Whilst working for industrial companies, for instance marketing plastic boxes, he specialises in Mediterranean and other property sales and rentals and his advice on marketing rental properties in Europe and in the UK is based on personal experience. Was a GoGuide with Infoseek search engine before Disney ruined it and now runs Latroba.com - the Info World.com travel search engine. Photographer who loves good photographs and out of preference likes using them to build visual imagery whether at Hydra, Antibes or Old Nice. Likes music - but not on webpages, food and romantic places and challenging dry rot for 20 years ( - likes hunting mushrooms to eat as well!). Generally lets the product and photographs speak for themselves rather than using graphic design, with highest emphasis on search engine effectiveness. Likes using a sense of humour to make a point and willing to be adventurous. Maintains the super-effective spam-blocker which protects clients from 500 spam emails per day. Clients normally come to him having seen results on search engines. Provides expert data analysis services as well as photography and heritage preservation and marketing consultancy. Will always provide professional advice in the client's long term interest, even if it's not what the client wants to hear at the time. As well as designing website architecture for effective websites, he is an expert on linguistic approaches to spam filtering. Wonderfully, if cruelly(!), cartooned by Jim.

Shelley Taylor Associates Market research and management consultancy. If you are in the big travel business you cannot be without her reports on the effects and future and success factors of ONLINE TRAVEL. She identifies future trends and advises on corporate marketing:
"Online vendors need to grow up," says Shelley Taylor. "They must stop thinking of their virtual stores as playgrounds in which all the other kids are begging to play. The game and the rules belong to the customer, not the retailer." She added: "I was astonished to find that some of the hottest online retailers have yet to adopt the rudimentary customer services practices of their brick-and-mortar counterparts. The success of online stores will depend upon bridging the gap between the purchase and delivery of goods and effectively managing customer expectations through post-transaction communication." Her report RETURN TO SENDER is a companion study to Click-Here Commerce, and evaluates the online fulfilment retail e-commerce success factors. "Click-Here Commerce" identified 350 types of content and activity that can help prevent shopping cart abandonment. In their research they actually purchased items from 100 retail sites in the US and UK and tracked the checkout process, order fulfillment and returns to identify 200 user experience metrics that will ensure repeat business and customer loyalty. Her advice provides the essential criteria necessary to increase the success of any e-commerce venture
click2invoice.com for quick and easy on-line invoicing.

"You'll recall that I'm listed on two other sites: I've made some bookings through those, but most of my inquiries come through you . . .
"I have spent a fortune advertising in The Lady and you have got much better results at a lower cost"
". . . if I hadn't have got onto your site, we would almost certainly have had to sell up and move. We got the badly needed bookings"
"Before I came on your site, I did not think we would be able to hold on in Spain. We had 17EU in the bank."
Just four months later this client has sent a cheque for commission together with expressions of appreciation.
What we do for our clients is not just work - we like to work with them to maximise their potential and it is a pleasure beyond mere business to provide a service that is of genuine help to our clients.
Somewhere in the page above you'll find an "CLICK TO ENQUIRE" button or a straightforward email address on which to click.
When enquiring PLEASE PROVIDE A TELEPHONE NUMBER. E-mail is not 100% reliable, so without a phone number our clients have no alternative means of contacting you. Enquiries go straight to the owner of the rental or property for sale . . . so if you are enquiring about more than one rental villa or apartment for sale or rent, please send an enquiry individually relating to each property. Except for pages for a minority of clients, your enquiry is not going to a letting agency for all the properties in a region - you are booking direct with the owner . . . and for the reason below, we feel that you can have confidence in doing so.
As webmasters we are not acting as agents but are publishing what our clients have asked us to market for them.
We expect that you should have a good experience buying a property for sale or booking a holiday rental through our clients, and if you don't (very rare), we like to hear about it! We beleive that you can have confidence in booking your holiday with our clients.
