Growers and Wholesalers: These websites are aimed at the home gardener in Qld. If you're a strictly trade-only supplier, advertising on these websites won't be accepted unless you have products (including trademarked plants) you would like to advertise to the general public. In this case, a directory listing, banner ads or other forms of promotion (possibly redirecting visitors to your retail network via your website) may be appropriate. Just get in touch to discuss your needs further.
**Placement policy: New listings are usually added at the top of the list. This approach has been taken to balance the various interests of advertisers and visitors (a better user experience ultimately benefitting all advertisers). It gives each advertiser the opportunity to enjoy a period at or near the top of the listing, and reflects the higher prices usually paid for more recent addditions. For visitors, the advantage is that the freshest information tends to appear toward the top. It does mean that you may gradually move down the list as later advertisers are added, but the pages are presented in such a way to encourage vistors to browse through the whole list to find the vendor that best serves their needs. Directory listings, including links to your website, last indefinitely once paid for and represent excellent value for money. (Don't forget to notify the webmaster if your contact details or general product description need updating.) Nevertheless, if you require premium placement, this can be negotiated for an additional fee. However, the webmaster reserves the right to ultimately determine placement of all advertising and other content.
Tailored to your product, may include directory listings on appropriate pages, graphical advertisements (banner ads), text links, features, plus ongoing discussion and ideas about the marketing of your product throughout the year. Price negotible.

Australian merchants with affiliate programs are invited to get in touch, especially if they carry home and garden products.

Because an weak internet presence could mean you're missing out.
Isn't the internet is the first place many people look for information these days? They want and expect that information to be available at their fingertips when they need it.
Someone could even be searching for your type of products or services on the web while you're reading this. However, that potential new customer could fail to find you because:
1. You don't have an internet presence at all,
2. Your website is too difficult to find, especially via search engines (the way most people are probably loooking for your products).
If your competitor is easy to find, that's where the business could go. Meanwhile, your competitor is also building brand awareness for future purchases.
As the importance of the internet continues to grow, can you afford to neglect this aspect of your business while competitors gain market share?
A simple test
Go to any popular search engine and try searching as if you were a customer. Don't forget to try the "Australia only" option if your target market is within Australia.
If you specialise in xyz and you're located in or near Brisbane, you might try variations like the following, substituting your product(s) or service(s) for "xyz":
You might be suprised at what you find!
- xyz Brisbane
- xyz nurseries Queensland
- xyz nursery Brisbane
- xyz suppliers Qld
- xyz for sale Brisbane
- your actual business name
