About us

Thereafter, within a year, eight local feature films were produced.

    Делая свой сайт, почти не предполагала, станет он многопосещаемым или нет. На нем я реализовывала свою личность – это было первой целью. Мой проект предполагает в большем женскую аудиторию, в сети интернет таких миллионы. Магазин женской одежды – распространенная, конкурентная среда. Сначала я была переполнена слепым оптимизмом, творила сайт особенным, красивым, уникальным. Мне все казалось легко и просто. Увы, посещаемость практически нулевая, прибыль, конечно же, тоже. Друг отыскал сеошников, которые продвинут мое творение. Я согласилась.

    Конечно, сама предпринимала попытки продвинуть сайт, хоть как-то поднять позиции. Отнюдь, не получилось. Убедилась, что всё должно быть точно в комплексе, организованно, в системе. Я сдалась.

    Обратилась к специалистам prodvizheniya.net . Меня порадовал простой интерфейс этого сайта. Нашла ответы на все свои вопросы. Бесплатная консультация простым языком, разъяснение до мелочей. Я воспользовалась тарифом «статейный», он самый эффективный. Супер-результат за минимальное время! Если Вы задумаете заказать продвижение сайта в ТОП – обращайтесь сюда, не разочаруетесь. Да, и еще, была акция – приятная скидка. Цены тарифов классные, а главное, честные. Компетентные, отличные специалисты, индивидуальный подход. Учтут особенность именно Вашего портала, повысят его интерес, привлекут пользователей. В моем случае, доход зависит от популярности. Так что, эти ребята – гарантия моего бизнеса в сети.
