Indiana Motorsports Directory
I have been involved in motorsports since 1970 and have witnessed many organizations, some still with us and some long gone, who claimed that their main objective was the promotion of Indiana based motorsports companies. The problem I have seen with most is that they tend to gravitate toward the larger companies; those with the most money. While I appreciate the need to make money, I believe that many of these organizations have lost track of the needs and resources of their potential partners. They speak of the ‘hundreds’ of Hoosier companies involved in motorsports without realizing that most are 5 persons or less operations. Many are even one-person shops who have gone out on their own and desperately need a way of not only letting the potential client in North Carolina or California know they exist but wanting to make sure the shop down the street knows their capabilities.
What we hope to accomplish is to provide a place where shops can go and find potential partners in Indiana, maybe down the street so everyone can best utilize local providers. If someone from North Carolina or California finds one of our clients, so much the better!
To get things rolling, we are providing free listings for those who have web sites and a free one-page directory site for those who don’t. That offer does require that they purchase a domain name (if they need one) and a Basic host package from www.racetoadomain.com. The yearly cost of that is less than $60.00.
Our hope is that within a year, we will have grown to the point where a $200 per year listing fee sounds reasonable to our clients plus we are offering a variety of other marketing services including full web sites, ecommerce and social media such as Facebook and blogs. We are committed to helping the Indiana Motorsports Community ensure that we at least look and see if there are local providers with which we can partner.
Future plans include an AdWords campaign on Google to help drive more potential clients to the site. We will continue to look at ways of making the site more visible and helpful for our clients.
Let us know who you are and we will get you listed. Please make sure you let your friends and customers know about us.
