Why don't you charge a fee to list Lake Murray business information?
The more comprehensive this web site is, the more likely people will use it as their main source of Lake Murray information.  We want to provide a central clearing house for all Lake Murray information - something which we have found difficult to find on other web sites which limit information to only those who pay a fee.
Why is there a charge for Realtors, if not for other businesses?
We charge a fee to list realtors because they don't provide a service that is unique to lake users.  Furthermore, it is not difficult for a prospective home buyer/seller to find a realtor to meet their needs.  We are offering a page for Realtors as a benefit for them, rather than as a benefit for our viewers.  For only $50/year, realtors have the opportunity to get some extra exposure to the thousands of our web site visitors who love the lake life, and may be interested (now or in the future) in selling or purchasing lake property. 
Am I allowed to advertise on a page not related to my business?
Yes, you are!  We have found that many people looking for a specific product or service will take advantage of services offered by other companies (e.g., a visitor to our "Parks" page are likely to also rent a boat or visit a local restaurant.).
Can I advertise on the front (main) page?
We do have a limited number of sponsorships available on the front page - please call us for pricing.
Are there any businesses which are not allowed to advertise? is a "family-oriented" service, and all listings must fall within this criteria.  We reserve the right to determine if any listing is inappropriate for posting to 
How long does my advertisement run?
The free business listings will not expire.  All Paid Advertisements run from January 1 to December 31 of each year.  We will begin taking new orders for Paid Advertisements beginning January 1st of each year.
Will I get a discount if I purchase several years of advertising?
We do not offer discounts for multi-year purchases of our Paid Advertisements and the listings on the Real Estate page.  Multi-year purchases, however, will protect you against possible rate increases.
