GottaGoGolf opened 2011 with 300 opted-in subscribers and finished the year with more than 3,000! As we grow in 2012, we invite groups, clubs, courses, retailers, tournaments and TV networks to list in our Women-Welcome Events (calendar) or Women-Welcome Directory. Here are our guidelines:
1. Organizers of free or nonprofit golf events who would like to invite women to participate may input their information free of charge in the Women-Welcome Events calendar. Hint: Type in the location information and address first, save it,and then the rest will be easy. We will check your draft before publishing.
2. Organizers of for-profit events may input their information in the calendar for three months in advance of their event for a one-time $100 fee. Submit your event along with contact information at the end of the text and you will receive payment instructions before your listing is published. (This is not the place to advertise courses, resorts, getaways and schools, but see Number 3!)
3. Many courses and small businesses have asked how they can support us without advertising in individual issues of GottaGoGolf Magazine. The Women-Welcome Directory is the answer. This is the place where courses, resorts, retailers, service providers, teachers, school and products can step up to show their support for women's golf and communicate how and why they welcome women. Listings cost only $300 for a full calendar year, and can be as elaborate or simple as the lister wishes. (See Pasatiempo for an example.) All will include links, an image, and, if there is a brick and mortar location, a spot on the interactive map. For detailed instructions on how to add your business to the Women-Welcome Directory, send us an email.
With our new website, we will be marketing and advertising aggressively in 2012 to build traffic and again expand our subscriber base 10 times, to 30,000 engaged readers.
Please join us in promoting the events and businesses geared toward women who enjoy golf, and our traffic will become your traffic too.
