BigBadBoat [B3] is fast-becoming a solid web resource for performance boating enthusiasts, as well as people who are seriously into the watersports/beach/tiki bar lifestyle. This makes us attractive to a wider audience, and our content is totally geared toward bringing more people into our sport.
In just a few short months, we have been able to attract several hundred unique visitors per week, and that growth is increasing*. Our most recent HubSpot™ Website Grader Score of 60 continues to show improvement, and that report also shows that Big Bad Boat has:
An Alexa [online measuring service] Rank that puts it in the top 15.9% of all websites.
A Technorati Blog Ranking that puts it in the top 2.32% of blogs tracked by Technorati, the web's most popular and respected blog directory.
The latest versions of these reports are available upon request.
Our more "casual" audience spans a wide range of interests and economic circumstances. Many are high-income individuals, who travel frequently, or who can afford a property on or near the water. Others are lifestyle-oriented, interested in exciting activities and nightlife, exotic locations, water sports in general, and having a good time. Still others are interested in extreme sports, racing, adventure travel and other related activities. Wherever they are and whatever they are into, B3's Web site and Twitter site are focused on seeking them out, bringing them together and getting them "into" performance boating.

BIG BAD BOAT
is updated more
frequently - almost
every day. Most other performance boating sites are updated once a
week - or maybe a couple of times a month. That's not enough to keep people
coming back frequently.
BIG BAD BOAT gets strong traffic from many new and unique visitors. Some forums may have more "hits" and traffic - but 75% of that traffic represents the same couple hundred-or-so "hardcore" members...you're advertising to the same people, over and over again.
BIG BAD BOAT has a broad appeal, going beyond offshore news and race results to include a wider focus on lifestyle information, technology, relevant entertainment news, travel destinations and other interesting topics. It's how we "hook" new people.
BIG BAD BOAT has a worldwide focus - of course, we're based in the USA, but exciting things are happening in performance boating all across the world. With today's technology and the Internet, there's no excuse for not bringing EVERYONE together to grow the sport. You can see the difference in our content and our tone. Plus, we can be easily translated into 15 LANGUAGES - that's they key to maximizing an audience!
BIG BAD BOAT is built to get good results on Google search indexes - even in just a few months, we've been able to increase our traffic significantly through improved SEO techniques and relentless posting. That will benefit both of us in the long run.
BIG BAD BOAT looks different than most boating sites - as you've noticed by now. No blue and aqua stripey-zig-zaggy flourishes. No tired looking designs or "seen it before" graphics. It's time for something fresh and new - something that appeals to young people and stands out from the crowd.
BIG BAD BOAT gives you more - through our associated Twitter Page, you get more reach, and benefit from B3's constant, daily presence on this worldwide social network. We post about the sport, about our site, and we can post about you, too. We engage people inside and outside of the boating industry to get the word out about this great sport.
