Should you be advertising in our directories?

Still only £5 per quarter per entry less than 50p per week. Spread the word before the price increases. Once your standing order is in place, and providing payment is not interrupted, the price stays the same – indefinitely!

Remember, when we come out of the recession it is going to be those businesses that have continued to advertise and just ‘keep their name out there’ that are going to be the most successful – a proven marketing concept!

If you do not have your own web site, why not consider our gold listing? £10 per month will provide a standard directory entry PLUS your own fully-optimised mini web-page with your own domain name if required. A web presence with no initial outlay!
