    Need suggestions, please! I am in the yacht charter business where a week's rental can range from $30,000 - $300,000. Need high quality traffic. On social networks, YouTube, G+, VideoBash, etc...but no new traffic. How can I go about generating traffic from high net worth individuals? Don't mean to be naive - just frustrated.

    If you need to convert traffic to buy from $30,000 - $300,000 you need high quality targeted traffic which you can only get by targeting high used keywords and creating a brand around your business.

    Cheap solution: try press release submission (one that will hit Google and Yahoo news).
    Less cheap solution: radio/tv advertisement.

    I think you should go for PPC. You'll be able to target broad base on Google through this. I think facebook and other social media is not very well for such luxury niche.

    Press releases are a good idea. Banner ads on yachting forums would also be good. I presume you have some good offline marketing going on and advertising in magazines. in flight magazines etc ?

    I am also presuming you have a focused area for chartering...cant be covering the world of Yacht charters ?

    Someone who's going to spend $30,000+ a week on a yacht rental is very unlikely to be wasting their time on tv or listening to radio.

    Try advertisin on Google and optimize your campaign. They display ads in gmail as well - try that. Maybe mobile ads.

    Collect data about those people and try direct mail? Phone calls? Meeting in person.

    I don't know exactly as there are not a lot of people who will spend 30k a week on luxury yachts.

    True that. However, the initiative is often comes from wife/child of the person who's going to spend $30,000+ week, life isnt fair huh? :)

    You can focus on location based keyphrases: "yacht rental new york" (or your city / Marina) - for organic ranking or PPC.

    Another you can try is to get direct media buys on websites where high worth individuals patronize.

    Thanks to everyone for your ideas. I know its craz that people spend big bucks on just renting yachts...cheaper than buying and maintaining. Did one for the Biebs in March this year - $200,000 for the week. Thanks again. Trying your suggestions out.
