Bula, from New zealand.
« on: September 05, 2005, 02:31:00 AM »
Hi everyone.

I have just started learning all about lunar pages. The online help has been tops. I am about to take over my own web hosting from next month.

My web site is www.afijiholiday.com

Pete suggested I introduce myself here. So here goes.

I live in New Zealand and run a web site to rent out my holiday home in Fiji. It is a fantastic island paradise and once I get the mortgage paid off I hope to spend a lot more time there.

But in the meantime if anyone has got any good ideas for me on how to market my house on the web and get more guests staying in it, be glad to hear from you.

Look forward to getting to know this community.


Thanks, Grant.

Ia afijiholiday, Pete waves

O lesu mai vei?  :?

Bula vinaka  :D

to the forums
  and

       to LunarPages :thumb:
Good to see you've put yourself on the LunarMap  :thumb:

One suggestion might be small video clips to show what were all missing out on not having a holiday at Reef House .
I'm thinking views from the beach. View of the garden.  "Sounds of silence, Views of Paradise "




I really do need to win the lottery  :(

Hi Pete,

Thanks for your suggestion. I have a dvd with a lot of good stuff on it from our recent holiday there.

Have Rob working on it at present. Seems to be taking him a long time to get it on to the site.

Can you help with a good web site to download a free calendar I can you on my computer to keep track of my bookings?

Vinaka and kind regards,

Grant

Bula, Grant! Hmmmm. Maybe provide free Margaritas with little umbrellas and a CD of tropical music along with a map to the nearest hidden waterfall pool. Heh heh. I can dream can't I?!

Welcome to the forums, Afijiholiday! You asked for feedback about the video:

Try making the link more prominent, or link to the video several times on the page. Try embedding the video right in an html page instead of forcing a download. Also try telling the audience what player they'll need to see the video if you do keep the download.
I just posted about embedding a movie here:
