AGS Publishing Logo

Welcome to the NEW AGS!
If you’re receiving this newsletter, you’re a valued customer of AGS, TXAD Internet Services or both! Or you are part of an association that AGS supports. As you probably know, AGS Guest Guide and Internet Services was purchased in 2011 by Texas Advertising. This newsletter is meant to provide FREE marketing information to our clients, both new and existing, so you can improve your bottom line. You’ll be hearing from us regularly on the latest and greatest in print and internet services. We’d love to hear your thoughts or help you with your questions so don’t hesitate to give us a call, toll-free at 877-518-1989 or email us, info@texasadvertising.net.


Give your customers information all over the park!
AGS Guest Guide Services continues to provide high-quality wallboards to RV parks to great fanfare. Each RV park or campground directory that is marketed by AGS receives two complimentary 2’ by 3’ corrugated plastic wallboards to display their park information along with the local businesses that advertised in their directory. In most cases, there’s also room for information about things to see and do that encourage the guest to stay longer. Plus, the wallboards are sturdy enough to be placed inside or outside and withstand disruptive weather.


AGS only started producing wallboards for their parks since their purchase by Texas Advertising in June of 2011. It was a common practice for Texas Advertising clients that they brought to the AGS package of marketing services.


The most common places RV parks and campgrounds choose to set up their wallboards is their front office and either a laundry room or bathroom or both! AGS recently marketed a directory for Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort who ended up with six around their park.


“With such a high-traffic park such as Oasis, it was truly beneficial to place additional wallboards to help their customers out,” said AGS sales representative Jerry Krebill.


Who’s making the changes to your website?
Most businesses have a website now. That wasn’t always the case but in 2012 its a virtual necessity to have a place to advertise your business on the internet. If you have a website you also have a hosting company where the website is ‘parked’ so that anyone in the world can pull it up. Now, most businesses cannot make their own website changes and require a hosting company to provide this service. Unfortunately, this takes the control that every business owner or operator is used to out of their hands which requires a heightened sense of trust and security. If a hosting company abuses that trust and ignores repeated requests for changes made, it can be extremely frustrating to a business owner.


TXAD Internet Services has picked up several clients as a result of frustration with another hosting company. One particular campground in Branson had waited MONTHS for changes to be made to their website which, by the time their previous hosting company got around to it, was irrelevant. TXAD Internet facilitates most changes in two business days because we know how important it is to have the latest information on your internet presence. Additionally, you’ll never have to worry about technical support from a company that doesn’t understand your business. TXAD Internet has been hosting websites for a decade and are still going strong.


If you’re looking for a new, better company to host and make changes to your website, feel free to contact us! For questions or information, please visit www.TXADInternet.com. You can also contact our General Manager at michael@texasadvertising.net or at 817-426-9395.
