As you may have heard, recent studies have come out revealing that when kids have questions they need answered, a majority turn to Google over their parents. While this is definitely intriguing, it is at the end of the day quite expected from our younger generations. But what happens when you take our current dependence on search engines and narrow its scope, say, to one geographic location? Well my friends, you’ve got SanDiego.com, of course!
SanDiego.com is a one-stop destination and search engine for everything you need to know about San Diego, including how to get in, places to go, people to see, concerts to hear, restaurants to try – you name it! Started in 1994, it is a high ranked website visited by hundred of thousands of people each month and its operations encapsulate what we try to instill in our students as one of the top online MBA programs in San Diego.
One of its cardinal strengths? President John Ferry’s pride and passion for America’s Finest City, and his determination to spread that to people all over the world. You see, not only is SanDiego.com a perfect for residents to go to find new things to do around town; it is also ideal for both domestic and international tourists wanting to come in and enjoy the full San Diego experience – whatever that might be for them – because travel information and search options are available rightat their fingertips to make the entire process easier and more efficient. And with news and information that encompasses all domains of the area, anyone can find anything that suits them the best.
One of my favorite things about SanDiego.com? The coupons! With an eye-popping abundance of discounts, promotions, promo codes, deals, codes, coupon offers and even buying/shopping advice, they really turn San Diego into a shopping haven. Not only does this help us consumers, but it also helps local businesses reach out to us, find their target audience and ultimately increase their sales and expand their business.
A prime example of very smart affiliate marketing for students in our business management programs, SanDiego.com’s business model is noteworthy. This is also one of reasons they were awarded the 2011 Small Business Award for the Most Innovative Marketing Campaign. Their social media marketing and networking is excellent (I frequent their Facebook page for San Diego events and post many links from their website to ours) and all in all, they are one of the many reasons why San Diego is one of the happiest places on Earth!
