ST-MAARTEN.COM is the largest website (by user traffic) covering St. Maarten/St. Martin and the neighboring islands. Please find below graphics displaying our site's traffic compared to others.
Our advertising rates are the lowest available for both print and online media, if you apply Cost Per One Thousand Contacts (CPM).
ST-MAARTEN.COM reaches over one million readers per year. Our rates must be higher than the ones for sites handling only a few thousand visitors annually (if that much). As publishers of a professional web portal, we spend money and effort to achieve our search engine position and to create the most valuable user traffic any advertiser could dream of: the first time visitor to SXM.
If you pay $250 to reach 10,000 readers, you might find this reasonable, while its actually expensive ($25 to reach 1,000). With ST-MAARTEN.COM, you would pay under $2,500 to reach 1 million readers - which is a tenth! (under $2.50 to reach 1000).
For all generic “St. Maarten” search terms on popular search engines, ST-MAARTEN.COM holds the number one position, generating about 70% of the Internet traffic for the island!
Audited and reliable statistics (by Google Analytics) about traffic to the site and traffic to an advertiser's segment are available on request at any time to clients.

Why We Offer to Refund Your Online Marketing Activities
Internet-marketing is a must for any tourism related business on SXM. But it has become very difficult for a local business person to decide on which website to advertise and how to track results. In order to get these expected results, a website needs to have traffic. If no one visits the site, then no one is seeing your ad.
The island's largest media (Internet or print) is the online portal ST-MAARTEN.COM. Our business model is based on advertising revenue. It is of utmost importance to us to protect the integrity of the local Internet marketing industry. If your ad-dollars spent on the Internet (no matter with whom you work) don't show results, you might disregard this media in the future for your marketing mix. That would hurt us in the long run.
The graphics we provide below show search engine traffic figures for ST-MAARTEN.COM versus other commercial sites soliciting advertisements. The images speak for themselves.
In order to win you over as a long term client, we are willing to make good where others didn't deliver as promised: we reimburse you for the money you spent for advertising with local websites, if you sign up with us. We are going to be accountable for results and will provide statistics quarterly (or anytime you request).
Below are the details of the deal:
- If you booked an advertisement with one of the sites listed in the graphics below, present the invoice or your paid contract. (An invoice which had been generated within the past 6 months).
- Sign up for a similar advertising package with us and we will SUBTRACT THE FULL AMOUNT of the invoice presented from our list rates! (Banner for banner, content page for content page, web-link for web-link, etc.)
- Our contracts run one year and the invoice you present should have a similar lifetime.
On first glance, our rates might appear to be higher than what you have seen offered elsewhere. Actually, they are much lower - by a huge margin. We have over one million readers per year, compared to... a few thousand or sometimes almost none elsewhere.
If you paid $250 to reach 10,000 readers, you might have perceived this as a reasonable rate, while its actually quite expensive ($25 to reach 1,000 readers). With ST-MAARTEN.COM, you would pay under $2,500 to reach 1 million readers - which is a tenth of the cost of the first example! (under $2.50 to reach 1000 readers).
