As you may know GuestPal, "the little blue book" for Galveston Vacationers now has a valuable digital component, GuestPAL.net, or what we like to call DigiPAL.
DigiPal was created to offer all of the same resources as the time tested magazine and more, all in one easy-to access website. Now advertisers have the opportunity to brand their business and sell their products and services online to Galveston vacationers and locals alongside relevant and easy to find Galveston vacation content.
UPDATES TO GUESTPAL.NET
GuestPAL is happy to announce that we recently added a chat feature to the site. Visitors that have questions, can click the pink word balloon on the bottom right hand page to register for chat and type in their message. Like most modern website chat features, if we are not available for live chat, the messages will default to email and will be answered within 24-hours.
In addition to chat, GuestPAl continues to build up the content on the site. The more valuable content we create, the more satisfied users we will serve. New content includes: Travel, Vacation and Lifestyle content, business additions to the site directory coupon offers, and advertorial and more.
IT ALL STARTS WITH THE PROFILE
All Galveston businesses are eligible to receive, and likely already have, a free profile on on DigiPAL. Search The Directory on the site to see if your business is displayed. if it isn't, contact John@guestpal.net with your business name, phone number, website, and address so that we may add you to the directory.
The way to really put this tool to work for your business is to purchase an upgraded profile which will allow us to add an extensive business description that is searchable onsite, indexed by the major search engines and relevantly categorized throughout the site. Other features of the full profile are:
a spot on our interactive map, which allows customers to find you and even navigate to you,
links to your website and all social profiles,
an extensive Image gallery,
business videos that can be streamed from YouTube and/or Vimeo,
click to call or message mobile phone number and email.
The upgraded DigiPAL profile is very affordable and a value that all Galveston businesses should take full advantage of. Here is an example from one of our newest advertisers, Bronco Burrito.
All Paid Profiles will be featured on the homepage of GuestPal.net and in your business' unique category(ies).
COUPONS AND OFFERS
Many advertisers choose a plan that allows them to post a coupon. Coupons offer a great opportunity to introduce new customers to your products and services. You may have a new product, excess inventory or you may just want to see new faces in your place of business. DigiPal Coupons provide a great tool to accomplish all of this.

Sometimes the best way to get the word out about your product or services is with a written story. Advertisers can choose a package that includes our Advertorial Section call "Hidden Gems." Our staff will publish a written piece or video from you or your website, or even interview you to produce a new content piece about your products and services. Here are some examples of our Hidden Gems:
