With no free listing option available, it is necessary to settle the annual listing fee of £19.99 in advance of the creation of a new listing on letscamp.net.
Around one month before the expiry date of an annual subscription, we begin to email advertisers with notice that a subscription is coming up for renewal. These advisory emails contain a link directly into the advertiser's control panel where completing the renewal process is straightforward.
When a subscription has not been renewed past its expiry date, well maintained listings for parks that remain in business - and that have not opted out from receiving advisory emails from us - are not removed from the website, and the advertiser retains full control over the listing in the regular way, via the listing control panel.
The downside is that listings with lapsed subscriptions do not appear in search results for searches carried out on the website. Neither do they appear on pages that list parks specific to a geographic location (for example, parks within a given county), nor popular search pages (for example, adults only parks, or those that offer Glamping).
While the subscription remains lapsed, and the advertiser chooses to leave the listing published on letscamp.net, we will begin to send monthly reminders by email advising the advertiser that the listing is suspended from search results - with the invitation and link to renew at their discretion.
With the sign-up process complete, we get to work building new listings by gathering details from the park's own website. A possible obstacle at that point is the availability of adequate quality photographs on the advertiser's website. Should that be the case, we will get in touch with details of the photos required, along with full support as to how to get those over to us. The listing creation process will unfortunately stall until such time that the photos are made available.
With adequate photos in place, and the initial listing creation process complete, we hand full control of the listing over to the advertiser by way of emailing a link providing for direct access into the new listing's online control panel. At that point, the 14 day guarantee period begins, within which time the advertiser retains the unconditional right to request a full refund of the annual subscription fees paid in association with that new listing.
The listing control panel provides advertisers full control over every single piece of information published on the advertiser's park listing page on letscamp.net. It also enables fine grain controls over a comprehensive range of listing and account control options, along with subscription renewals and payment receipt archives. Photo uploads are also managed from within the control panel.
Access to the control panel does not involve entering a password. Instead, it's necessary to submit only the registered email address on the website here - and right away we'll send an email to that address with a link that will take you directly into the control panel for your listing (or organisation). These links remain valid for a few days after they are sent out - unless a user elects to log out of the control panel, after which, a new link must be requested.
The freemium model is currently the most popular model for directories like letscamp.net - offering advertisers a certain quality of listing for free, with paid subscriptions adding incentives such as elevated placement and highlighting in search results, the activation of critical features (like links through to a park's own web services), and so forth.
We are not prepared to sell higher placement in search results either - search results on letscamp.net are returned solely according to the search selections a user provides, or in random order otherwise.
The website does need funding however, so we have established a single-tier, low cost annual subscription that each search enabled park subscribes to equally, with no additional subscription options offered. This ensures every listing published on letscamp.net has the same comprehensive qualities - while it keeps search results fairly and squarely objective to the website user's requirements. Advertise with us, and we are sure you will be more than happy with the return on that small investment.
In organisation mode, our control panel allows an administrator to maintain any number of independent listings registered to the organisation via a single point of access. If this sounds best for you, please get in contact via the Ask A Question form below.
We realise that many parks look to pay for subscriptions such as ours by way of bank transfer on receipt of an invoice.
However, our super low subscription rate is made possible only by way of streamlining our administrative processes - so we now offer online payment by PayPal only. If you don't have a PayPal account, please select the direct Debit or Credit Card option that PayPal provides as an additional method of payment.
To minimise security risks, we never store your credit card details within our systems - which rules out auto-renewals.
When settling the annual listing fee by PayPal, this is a one-off payment only - not the establishment of an auto-renewing PayPal subscription.
Starting from when you have first settled the listing fee as part of the sign up process, until the end of the 14th day after we have made your listing control panel available to you, we will on request1, and without quibble, provide a full refund of the listing fee paid2. We would also remove your listing from the website at that point.
