Advertise with THE BIKER GUIDE
|With an on-line audience of over a million*, from over 170 countries and a high site ranking, we are fast becoming 'THE' place to advertise your business to the Biker Community!|
Some reviews from our customers...
"After trying a few other websites that 'supposedly' advertise biker friendly places and getting virtually no response, I have recently signed up with THE BIKER GUIDE. I cannot believe it took me so long, as within 3 weeks the 12 months advert I placed has already been paid for (and more) with a booking for next June. I am going to be honest - the other websites I have tried were cheaper, but you know a waste of money, £25 quid here, £35 there - it all adds up!
I found a card at a café and also the booklet, along with a few of my friends saying how good the site was and how most Bikers use it now to find places to stay, so I thought I would give it a try. I can see why it is popular as it is just so easy to use with good clear information. As an advertiser the service I got after filling in the form was brilliant. They took what I had wrote, added to it, tweaked it and added links - its a shame other websites do not care as much for their customers as most these days just take your hard earned cash, throw the listing onto the website (mistakes an all) and then phone your neighbours. Well done to THE BIKER GUIDE and the team there. ;)"
"Your site is excellent, we have had great feedback from guests who have found us on your site and been pleased to book somewhere that welcomes bikers rather then them trawling through lots of hotels calling and getting nowhere"
"I was recently persuaded to advertise on THE BIKER GUIDE by one of your sales ladies. I admit to being sceptical but, at the price, decided to give it a try. After only a few weeks of advertising and considering the time of year (I started in November), I have just had my first 6 night booking for next September! Had to write and say well done. I am impressed" -

brings you a collection of information on everything that the Bikers' Heart desires, including a collection of information that the Motorcycle community is interested in, such as Rallies, Shows, Competitions and News and has fast become a website that is trusted and visited frequently as a fantastic source of any information to do with the Biker community. It is not just a directory with no content or information - in fact we spend approximately 40% of our time sourcing and including such information and promoting the website, to Bikers throughout the UK, Europe and beyond to help all involved gain the utmost response.
As Bikers ourselves we aim to provide an informative website for our loyal and increasing in size audience, rather than just a directory. As our visitors are using the website on a daily and weekly basis they are more likely to look and use the businesses included on the website rather than search the www for information. We have no intensions of packing the website full of lots of people all in the same area competing against each other and so we build sections as we build clients, rather than have blank and very annoying pages.
As we will always be promoting this website direct to Bikers both through the internet, social media (we have facebook groups of over 26,000) and also directly at Bike shows, Rallies, through Bike Clubs and through a variety of other means and will not just be reliant on search engines, in fact we are always working to ensure that everyone involved gets the ultimate response.
We also encourage a lively and friendly community where visitors actively contribute to events, news and content to help build a fast growing website packed full of everything to do with the biker community!
We have visitors from over 170 countries, with UK, USA, Ireland, Sweden, Germany and France being the most popular, along with the site being high on Google on most relevant searches. i.e. Biker Friendly, Biker Clothing, Bike Rallies, Biker Camping, etc...

The website is very user friendly, where most listing can be found in 1 to 3 clicks, with external links to you, your address and other places of interest, to encourage a healthy response for your business.
THE BIKER GUIDE® website is not just a directory with no content as many other websites are, in fact we pride ourselves on including businesses who are genuinely interested in the Biker Community rather than to make a quick buck, pound or euro from them and so we offer quality advertising packages, where we will always check and add information for you which is relevant to our audience.
We are not interested in including lots of places/businesses all competing against each other in the directory sections and so we build sections when we have content rather than have very annoying blank pages. It is also important to point out that we want to include quality rather than quantity... another reason that you the advertisers will get a better response. For example, we only include genuine 'Biker Friendly' places and will check information before including onto the website, as our visitors are very important to us. We have even turned down bookings, where we deemed the parking would not be approved by our visitors... that is how passionate we are!

|Do you offer free listings?|
THE BIKER GUIDE® website brings together a collection of information specifically for the Biker Community, with an extensive business directory included. This concept (as far as we are aware) has not been put together before, yet is one that has been much needed.
The website is promoted to the Biker Community, through a variety of means such as banners, business cards, social media and more, so that advertisers can gain new customers (circa 3,450 visitors a day) and similar to a printed magazine, where advertising is paid for, as the revenue gained from our advertisers is the revenue generated for our business.
So before you think of asking us for a 'free' listing, ask yourself - would you offer a free nights stay in your hotel, a free meal, a free bike to someone... As we have quite clear advertising options and do not offer weblink exchanges, anyone asking for such 'free' listing will be ignored!
Do you negotiate the prices?
We believe that it is unfair to offer discount to one person and none to another, just because someone asks... So we will just say no and even turn down a booking rather than take a discounted rate, which is unfair on a fellow advertiser and be believe wrong.
In fact there is a story told, which says that when Sharon Osbourne was in negotiation with the producers of The Osbourne Show, when they tried to drop the price she asked for, she increased the amount she wanted and did so until the producer gave up realising they could not win.
