Products and Profiles on Marinetrac
December 05, 2022 | Maritime News | By Olaf Silva
As part of our vision to expand the website, we are opening the NewsBytes column to companies registered as Interactive or Premium in the Marinetrac database. The intent is to provide a promotional boost to companies already appearing in the data-driven search list in the Product Categories Index on Marinetrac. Other companies are included in the NewsBytes column by invitation only.
Without obligation, we offer registrants column space for 200 to 250 words for one month on the Home Page of Marinetrac. The news item is targeted to a website audience with Front Page exposure to the commercial marketplace.
Equipment and Technology will be the category that includes the “Products and Profiles” feature in the NewsBytes column. This feature will be identified in a footnote that includes the name and title of the individual who authorized the text and the company"s name. A word file of the text and a suitable photo image can be sent to us by accessing the link “Click to submit your News.”
Shipbuilding is the other news category that will include the “Products and Profiles” feature in the NewsBytes column. We invite Ship/Workboat Builders to send us news releases and related photo images for publication on the Home Page of Marinetrac. The protocols are the same as described for Equipment and Technology, and so is the access link to the Submit Form for NewsBytes.
In addition to the above categories, we have plans to expand the scope of news topics to include Maritime News – Offshore Marine – Ports and Logistics. We are discussing with international marine newsfeed services to enable this publishing phase in early 2023.
The Marinetrac website exceeded the month"s five-digit benchmark in the post-pandemic period. The metrics for the month ending October 31 recorded 10,550 visits. Steady growth in the preceding two months logged 8,585 visits in September and 6,830 in August 2022. The cumulative monthly average is currently at 8,655 visits.
The metrics above reflect robust search activity on Marinetrac for sourcing equipment and accessories for the commercial marine industry – a live search platform for manufacturers, suppliers, and shipbuilders.
