LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwire – October 18, 2010) –  Budget Center Inc.

The Company continues to focus on providing “more for less” and the best possible travel experience for its customers.

Working in conjunction with industry leading technology firm, Internet Marketing Inc. (IMI) since late June, the Company has completed extensive keyword analysis and collected extensive data to identify the best target markets prior to the pending launch of the Company’s internet marketing campaign. In the coming weeks and months, the Company will continue to work with technology and online marketing specialists from IMI and focus its efforts on Search Engine Optimization (SEO), selective social media, and Pay Per Click advertising.

The Company has continued to see significant organic growth in revenues from its flagship site, www.budgethotels.com, since it was launched earlier in the year. Web traffic to the site, in terms of both unique visitors and repeat customers, has continued to increase in North America and has also shown impressive growth from visitors from other countries as well.

The Company is now focused on increasing its exposure and brand awareness by adding additional content to its flagship site www.budgethotels.com and by building 30-40 multi-lingual landing pages over the next 30 days. Based on the analysis that has been performed in the past few months, the landing pages will be focused on key geographic areas to maximize marketing expenditures.

Following the build out and the enhancements to its web portal, the Company will commence its marketing campaign, which is designed and researched to maximize results by significantly increasing traffic which should have a significant impact on revenue growth in the coming months.
