What Heraklion.ru is in itself?
Do you know that right now a user of www.heraklion.ru could be searching for products or services like the ones you offer?
Every day — even during the winter — russian-speaking people come to us from Google, Yandex, Facebook and so on. They want to find out how to spend their nearest holidays on Crete. They search for car rental services. In advance. They want to buy some excursions or hire a guide. Sometimes — in advance. Bicycles, motos and quads, yachts, waterparks, shops — whatever. They search for locations and plan their route. They want to have a good time on island. That’s why they’re here. Everyday. In other words, when the users enter our website they actively state their intention to find your messages. This fact automatically converts them to potential customers.
What Heraklion.ru is. . . for you?
Have a business on Crete and need to promote it to russian-speaking tourists? It’s easy! Step one: hire some developers and designers to create a website. Then hire some copywriters and translators to make the russian version in addition to greek, english, german… Ready? Ok! Then hire some SEO- and SMM-specialists to make it wide-open to the world. Almost ready! One more step: hire a person who will plan paid ads in Google AdSense or Yandex Advertising Network or prepare to wait for several months or even years — even big search engines like Google and Yandex need time to index your site and rank it properly between thousands. Want to be in TOP10 results on the first page? The other story begins here…

Google and Yandex loves Heraklion.ru for years!
Lots of highly motivated travellers from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and some other russian-speaking countries come to us from search results and social networks. Have you noticed «Greece» on our infographics below? You know why it’s on the second place? Because even during staying on island people continue to search for some information and services — and come to us again. By the way, at least every third traveller returns to our guide later. Some of them — even for the next season. So who our readers are? Ok, look!
That’s cool. What else?
We connect people directly to everything the island’s travel industry has to offer. No wasting time on pointless navigation on large and «the-whole-world-in-one» sites, you’ll get the right audience here. You’re on Crete, right? So they are too! No passers-by or gapers — just travellers with airline tickets to the largest greek island for the nearest future or people that are already on the island.
No wasting time on pointless navigation on large and «the-whole-world-in-one» sites. You’re on Crete, right? So your clients are on Crete too!

Advertising options: how much it costs?
Fees sucks, so we’ve made them as low as possible. Weekly, monthly, pay per click… Nope. Only one annual payment keeps you in a flow. What will you get? You choose!
We love Crete and all the people on island. As we mentioned above, fees sucks, so we’ve made a free way for you to be here even if 49 Eu per year is still an extremely large amount of money for you. There will be no detailed description or direct offers, no clickable links, images and interactive maps, but your company’s name with short description and local address — why not? It will look like this.
The paid listing is an enhanced option which improves the presence of the business or the professional and increases the chances of being selected by the user. Apart from the main information (trade name, detailed description in russian language, address, contact numbers, etc.) paid listing allow you to provide to the potential customers additional information. Good way to improve listing and diversify from others: use some photos, island’s interactive map with placemark of your office, your office’s gps coordinates and «Take me there» feature, contact form for direct communication and so on. Look at those guys: travel agency Ivan Susanin or JustRentals with car hire services.
Listing your business on Heraklion.ru local directory should be at the top of your priority list for every season.
