- Exposure Throughout The TrainWeb Community Of Web Sites:
As a TrainWeb Sponsor, your clickable banner ad will appear in rotation throughout the
TrainWeb community over 5,000 times per month! Not only will it appear on almost every
page at TrainWeb, but it will also appear on the live webcam pages, on the home page of
over 150 independent railroad web sites in the TrainWeb WebRing and on the home page of
well over 100 railroad web sites operated by individuals and non-profit organizations
hosted on the TrainWeb server!
The most popular feature at TrainWeb is our live railroad action webcams. Since inception
in late 1997, over 4,000,000 images have been viewed from these webcams! Our most popular
webcam is TrainWeb WebCam #1 which updates
every 10 seconds. A new clickable banner is displayed with each new image. Display of your
banner is counted only when someone is actually viewing the webcam page with your banner.
The counts and visits are not incremented when there are no visitors actively on the page.

webcam or click here to view our

Almost every page at TrainWeb displays 3 clickable banners at the top of each page.
The upper left banner of these 3 clickable banners is reserved for TrainWeb Sponsors.
Your clickable banner will be displayed in rotation with our other sponsors. With the number
of visitors and pages viewed at TrainWeb each month, your banner will be seen well over
5,000 times each month!
As a service to the rail community, TrainWeb hosts over 100 web sites for free that are
operated by individuals and non-profit organizations. All that we ask in return is that
they display the clickable banners of the TrainWeb Sponsors on their home page. Thus, your
banner will also be seen on these other web sites hosted on the TrainWeb server! For links
to these other web sites, click here.
TrainWeb operates a "WebRing" of railroad related web sites. Your clickable banner will
also appear in rotation on the home page of over 150 independent railroad web sites in the

- Your Web Address:
Your web address should be "YourBusinessName".com . That is what people will assume your web
address to be when they look for you on the internet.
If you are already set up with that web address, then you are fine! You can keep your web
hosting with the service provider that you are currently using, or as a TrainWeb Sponsor,
we will host your web site at no additional charge!
If you are not using "YourBusinessName".com but would like to, we can set you up with that
web address if it is available. If that web address is no longer available, you can use
"YourBusinessName".zq.com instead if you wish. When you use a ".zq.com" web address, you
do not pay any registration nor annual fees for your URL !
- Additional Domain Names:
In addition to placing your web site at a web address that reflects the name of your business,
it would also be very beneficial if you had links to your web site from every generic web
address on the internet that relates to your business.
At $70 per web address for the first 2 years and $35 per year thereafter, attempting to
obtain every web address related to your business could be a costly initial investment and
a significant annual expenditure!
TrainWeb has already taken care of this at no additional cost to you! We have obtained every
rail related domain name that we could think of that we believe to be of value to the rail
community. As a TrainWeb Sponsor, direct or indirect links to your web site will be added to
each domain that directly relates to your business. Click

- Rail Magazine Advertising:
Advertising in rail related magazines is critically important to generating sales! Do not
make the mistake of thinking that having a web page will substitute for normal magazine
Having a web site is a wonderful supplement to print advertising. You can tell potential
customers much more about your products that you could ever fit into a printed advertisement.
You can also use full color photos for everything that you wish to promote and even use
video clips with sound or 360x360 immersion photos to enhance your product presentation!
Your web site can allow your potential customers to securely place an order for your products
right online! This is great for impulse buying! The customer does not have to pick up the
phone nor have to mail in any forms or checks.
To enhance your sales, continue or increase your amount of magazine advertising, but make sure
that you change your ad copy to include your web address! This is an extremely important step
that many vendors leave out! Print and web promotion work wonderful together, but you will
lose most of the advantages of each if you do not place your web address in your print
- Greatly Increased Rail Magazine Exposure:
TrainWeb is running 1/4 page ads, many in color, in over two dozen rail related magazines.
This brings visitors to our web site and we send many of those visitors to your web site!

It is essential that you run your own ads WITH YOUR WEB ADDRESS in as many magazines
related to your business as you can afford. However, it is difficult for most businesses to
run ads simultaneously in a large number of rail magazines. As a TrainWeb Sponsor, your
exposure is increased by our ads in those magazines in which you can not afford to place your
own ads. Do keep in mind: web promotion is a good supplement to print advertising
and not a replacement for it!
- Why do so many people visit TrainWeb and view so many web pages at TrainWeb?
TrainWeb offers a unique and comprehensive set of rail resources found on no other rail related
site on the web. Although many sites offer some of these features, none come close to the scope
and magnitude of what can be found at TrainWeb.
Although we'd like to take full credit for this, we really can not fairly do that. Our efforts
at TrainWeb have been extensive, but the comprehensive nature of this site has been largely
achieved through the efforts of over 100 independent webmasters who have their web sites hosted
on the TrainWeb server. These web sites cover almost every aspect of rail imagineable! In
some cases these web sites have been provided by a non-profit rail organization, but in most
cases they are web sites built by these webmasters just so they could share their rail
interests, photos and information with the rest of us in the online rail community!
Some of the features that TrainWeb itself provides that attract members of the rail community
to the TrainWeb site include:
360x360 virtual reality immersion photos,
a search engine,
free e-mail at RRmail.com ...
