www.dive-international.net is the new international edition of ukdiving.co.uk. www.dive-international.net extends the user appeal of this World leading web site to a broader international diving audience.

Established in 1993, ukdiving was one of the first web sites to serve the needs of the diver. Now, after 8 years as a world leader we are the the largest site serving this popular and growing sport with over 30,000 html pages and in 2003 recieved 1.5 million user visits.

Comparing our user levels with the circulation of traditional 'printed' magazines, our user base is now double the size of any of the UK based diving magazines and advertising on www.dive-international.net could not be easier or more cost effective. We deliver a unique and highly targeted audience.

Research shows that both Internet users and divers are typically young (18-44), high earning individuals who are well educated and likely to be working in managerial, technical or professional positions. With greater availability of training in holiday resorts, there has also been an explosion in the number of women qualifying as divers each year.

Divers not only purchase diving related equipment but increasingly travel internationally to participate in their sport. Divers tend to be environmentally aware and conscious of the 'lifestyle' aspects of their sport.

Promotion via www.ukdiving.co.uk provides a direct and focussed means to target this highly attractive and growing group of 'active' sport participants. www.ukdiving.co.uk is the ideal place to increase brand awareness and present your services or product range. Our average user stays on the site for over 17 minutes which gives your advertisement every opportunity to stand out.

Web advertising can be highly targeted, reaching individuals with a specific interest and visitors to a web page are effectively pre-qualified leads because they have chosen to visit that particular page. In fact, we can also tell you how many times your advertisement has been seen during a month. This is not just a vague 'circulation' figure but an analysis of visits to that page so that you can see how many are really viewing your advertisement, helping you to fine tune and maximise all your sales opportunities.

If you are currently using magazine advertising as your main promotional tool, we can help introduce you to a more effective and cheaper means of promotion. If you already have a web site we can also help drive traffic to you, increasing your business potential.
