Advertising on Go Overseas
We don't sell banner ads that rotate with your competitors for 12 months. Instead we send our clients a guaranteed number of highly-qualified visitors that used Go Overseas to make a decision. Why? It's a quick story:
In the beginning...
It's corny, but Go Overseas was started in a California coffee shop in 2009. Founders Mitch and Andrew spent years living, teaching, volunteering, studying, and working abroad. They knew the resources that (didn't) exist for adventurous travelers like themselves looking for programs overseas. They decided they couldn't ignore the problem (they're upstanding guys after all).
The (bleak) landscape
Three years ago, individuals who wanted to research overseas programs had a few options:
- Outdated directories
- Individual blogs
- Provider's own sites
Not exactly a cornucopia of information. Intelligent users wanted more.
Other travel sites were amazing
If people wanted to find a hostel, restaurant, train route, or tour company, great sites were competing for their attention. Each well designed, and bursting with reviews, advice, articles, and a community.
An ambitious start: Replicate the best
Andrew and Mitch founded Go Overseas to create the single best website for individuals considering programs abroad. At a minimum it had to bring the feedback, community, and utility of the best travel review sites to the world of overseas programs.
Quality Content = Quality Visitors
Conveniently enough, Google likes communities too. The user generated content that's submitted to Go Overseas daily attracts the best traffic. The thousands of visitors who pass through our pages daily find us because they're looking for more than an advertisement, or a list of their options.
Rich Content is Highly Motivating
The visitors who find us are highly motivated. Then we make them better: our visitors use the site to research, compare, and decide. When a visitor spends ten minutes reading a dozen reviews of your program, and then chooses to visit you, they're yours to enroll. But we don't charge for the ten minutes they spent learning about you, we get paid when that user chooses you.
Is it working?
