Promote your business for FREE on our Facebook Page (be sure to check our Posting Guidelines)

How do you get your business name out there on Facebook? A great place to start is by ‘liking’ our Facebook page. This page now has thousands of fans and the way it works is by you posting your business details on the Wall (including @tagging your Facebook page if you have one) which may then be given a “shoutout” that goes out to all fans. The idea is that our fans then visit your page from our link and become a fan themselves, boosting your fan numbers and hopefully your sales with them! Remember though, if we @tag your business name in a shoutout, it will also appear on your business page. We get hundreds of posts per day so shoutouts are not guaranteed unless you are a sponsor.

Event posts will be featured in prime position, in a separate section on the front page of the website as well as on the blog menu. Posts are charged per quoted word count. That is, if you want a 250 word blog post, it costs $250. If we go over that, we don’t charge any more. Sponsored blog posts will have [Sponsored] after the title to distinguish them from regular blog posts as our policy is to disclose all purchased content and affiliate programs.

Businesses will need to apply for certification and there will be various levels of certification. More details will be forthcoming about this soon. Our aim is to increase awareness of the diversity and quality of home based businesses and provide certified businesses with a competitive edge. Applicants will need to pay a once-off nominal fee to cover administration costs. Details will be announced in our newsletter and on the blog.
