We've created 'OO Profile' which is your personal space on the site. Once registered, this is where you can choose your preferences and related articles will be posted to your profile page. This is also where you can manage all your activity on the site, including comments, messaging, classifieds and job or candidate alerts. Click here to register or simply login.
We offer targeted exposure to the global yachting community via content marketing. Since 2014 we've added some great new features to the site, so here’s a reminder of how our model works and how we get results for our clients.
OnboardOnline is a comprehensive platform for senior crew and yachting professionals worldwide. It is specifically built for content marketing which is the most powerful way to build brand awareness and engagement with potential clients. Using a mixture of editorial and promotional content, we get the right information in front of the right people in the right way.
The vehicle for this is our global Business Directory, which lists over 10,000 businesses worldwide. A premium listing includes a full company showcase but, unlike other directories, you can add company news, articles, images and video to your profile. This is important for SEO, and because OnboardOnline is highly ranked by Google, over time this content will increase your visibility in Google searches.
Articles that you upload to your company profile are automatically added to the weekly summary of new content that we send to our readers. For greater exposure we can also publish your articles on the main website and on our social media. Simply tick ‘submit for editorial’ when you upload new content.
With a premium listing in the global Business Directory, we can also promote your business at a local level. Within Ports & Shoreside, ‘Shoreside’ is a directory of local businesses in and around 600 superyacht ports worldwide. Here you can select multiple regions and multiple ports, allowing you to be found wherever you operate or need a presence.
As part of your subscription you can also send us your press releases for publication in Yachting News.
You can post unlimited jobs on our Jobs Board throughout the year, free of charge.
