Internet Marketing

  • Pay-Per-Click

    TACO has done everything to improve traffic to TexasCampgrounds.com, including an extensive Pay-Per-Click (PPC) program. By improving the search results standings on such sites as Google or Yahoo, more online RVers are finding TexasCampgrounds.com and your park!

  • Direct Link

    The Direct Link program on TexasCampgrounds.com takes the middle man out of directing RVers to your stand alone website. Consumers are able to use the Search function on TexasCampgrounds.com to find your park, but are then directly linked to your stand alone website, a feature not found anywhere else in the campground industry. Email Brian Schaeffer about how to get started with the direct link program.

No. Most cards like the Texas Saver Card, Good Sam, Passport America, only require honoring one discount at a time. Parks should state in their specific rules and regulations that only one discount will be honored.

No. The Texas Saver Card program is purely a voluntary marketing program as a TACO member. However, if your park is signed up for it at the beginning of the year, you must still honor until the end of the year, as your park would still represent that the Texas Saver Card is taken, per the RV Travel & Camping Guide to Texas. The Texas Saver Card only applies to daily rates.
