    I would like to advertise more about the koi website that I've been working on for my neighbour, but am having a difficult time finding places to trade links, or to gain attention with. The company is still fairly new, and I'm still learning about the marketing aspect of it.

    If anyone has any ideas of places that list links to other companies, or places to advertise selling koi and koi products in Canada, can you please let me know?

    Also, I need feedback from the community as far as the site and what it needs. If anyone would like to take a look and let me know, the link is below. I really would love to perfect it.
    Thanks.

    You could try come advertising with a pay per click agent such as google. You could also sell some on ebay and let your buyers know you have a website in correspondence. This will get some repeat business direct to your website.

    She does not sell them online currently. She may be able to send them to you via shipping, but you would have to speak with her about that one.
    Her information is on the website in my signature.

    My neighbours.
    It's my project though, and my family does have koi themselves.
    Hence the questions. Although since I posted this, there has been a steady stream of people showing interest, so the help I've received is working out, so thanks to whoever gave advice. :grumble:

    So are you here to add value to the Forum or just to sell Koi for your neighbor?

    I'm not sure as to why it wouldn't be working on your computer, as it is working here and with others that are viewing it. Maybe try clearing your cache in your browser.

    Seriously, I've gone through this before. I am not just here for that, this just so happened to be something I had in mind. This place provides valuable research, gave me a place to ask a valid question related to the board from people who have experience in such things, and also gives me a place to read about koi and how to take care of them considering my family has some.
    Just because I ask one question about this does not mean I'm here JUST for that. The project is mine, hence the question.

    I do not have much experience with koi myself and am more of an observer than a commenter. If you are going to judge me for being so, that's great. Just keep in mind that things aren't always the way they appear to be. :grumble:
    Not everyone is an expert.

    No one was judging you, I was just asking the question. :grumble:

    We have had others show up, give one liners then promote their business's by posting their ads.

    Nope, no ordering online. Not yet. Maybe eventually, but the site itself would need revamping for that. That may be in the works after I finish my web design diploma, and after her company has been around a bit longer than it has been.

    Yes, that they are, but that is from what I know.
    I'd recommend speaking to her if you have any questions about acquiring anything another way. kimskoifarm@aol.com

    dr dave is right about that. about one of those, he opened his user account,posted one post, telling everyone what the latest trends in backyard entertaining, with a link to his store, six months later, not one more post, or even a visit to the site. the thread is gone i can only assume it was removed. but it is annoying to read tidbits of information,only to find a link to an online store thats usually way overpriced, anyway.
