This page is for those who presently have an advert on the site and covers various areas. Please click on the link below that best covers why you have arrived here
OK, thanks for your advert, it is now time for
you to check it and confirm all is well before it goes to the whole world.
If your e-mail did not contain a link to your advert click here
Call up the page from your link in the
Once you have your advert in front of you read it carefully and make sure all is well.
You must especially check the section below the pictures, as that will, in general, be very specific and about your share.
I suggest you spend a few minutes looking at this page (link opens new window) which offers some tips and other ideas for promoting your share. Equally you should be aware of some unlikely but possible scams to rip you off, a few to look out for are here (new window)
If all is OK with your advert
you need e-mail and tell me
(email@example.com) or it may NOT go live. Although, should I not
hear from you within a day or so I reserve the right to put them live
Your advert will be promoted out to my mailing list soon after it first goes live on the web site.
Make a note to review your advert
It is amazing how time flies
and how your advert can become "out of date". Make a note NOW in your diary to
check and review your advert every three months just to make sure it is all
If you want to change something I have a really easy system for it...you e-mail me BUT any changes MUST come from the e-mail address on the advert.
If you want to change something simple just say so
Suppose you want to change a few words in a
paragraph rather than saying "after xyz on line two of the para that
starts....etc. you just ask me to change the lot!!
In your e-mail back to me to me right click in the body (usually) and paste it in TWICE.
Above the first copy write REPLACE
Above the second copy type WITH
Then just alter the text in the second copy as you want.
If you want to change a whole section, several paragraphs, just do the same, but with all the blocks.
If you want to add something else, again just copy in the whole block twice and change the whole section.
Please note that you cannot change, on your advert, once you have approved it, the contact e-mail address, the telephone number, the share holding, or the weeks booked UNLESS the bookings are for a subsequent year.
Once you have confirmed all is well with your advert it will go live FULLY on the web site and a letter will be sent to my mailing list advising them of your share coming up for sale. The letters CAN take a few days to go out after it goes live.
Please note your "Year" starts when it goes live and at the end of the term, should it not sell, you will be asked if you want to renew it for a further period, and then you can make as many changes as you wish. This reminder can come out just before or even after it ends "officially" as they are done by a person!
Good luck, I look forward to our next contact, and should you not still have open the e-mail I have sent you that directed you here, click here
I look forward to our next contact.
If all is OK with your advert you need e-mail and tell me or it may NOT go live. Although, should I not hear from you within a day or so I reserve the right to put them live un-checked.
Say you need to change something, price, mooring
Please note that you cannot change, on your advert, once you have approved it, the contact e-mail address, the telephone number, or the weeks booked UNLESS the bookings are for a subsequent year.
If you now go to the section here regarding changing a NEW advert, the process is the same
If your share is not generating the interest you would like then there are ways you can try to promote it, and I am happy to help (!). Before you go any further have a look at this page which offers some tips and ideas that might help and you might not have thought of.
If you want me to promote your advert out to my mailing list I would be pleased to do this but to stop people simply asking me to promote their share time and time again to the determent of other advertisers I make a small charge of £10 for this service. It is best if you can find a good thing regarding your share to "hang" on the e-mail, where, of course, a large price drop for a "quick sale" always gets attention!!.
If you wish to request this service best bet is to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can move it forward.
If you have not got a link to your advert in the e-mail you received....
please go to this page (link opens new window) and click on YES in the column highlighted in PINK, as a Previous Advert for your boat.
Your advert should show, if it does not press F5 (Command and R on a Mac)
If an advert shows and it is for an existing share already for sale you need to change the address slightly
The web pages are usually styled (NO capitals) www.boatshare.co.uk/yourboatname/index.htm
If a second share comes on for sale while another is live then it will be www.boatshare.co.uk/yourboatname/index2.htm
or a third www.boatshare.co.uk/yourboatname/index3.htm etc.
So you might just need to slightly alter the address to see your advert
If you still cannot find your advert just e-mail me for the link
Now check your advert
