FAQs

  • Do You Offer A Free Demo?

      • Limitations of the Platinum Member Demo:
        • Your directory listing is not visible to our site visitors.
        • Your Job Board account is not included in the Platinum Member Demo.
        • A valid credit/debit card will is required during registration. No payment will be taken.

  • Why Has Your New Web Site Stopped Offering Free Listings? 
    • Free listings are subsidised by paying advertisers: 
      • Monitoring  all the spurious listings took time and incured costs. A cost we  believe should not be carried by our paying advertisers.
    • Free listings are detrimental to our paying advertisers:
      • We  believe offering free listings is a disservice to our paying members.  Paying members should not have to compete for visitors with free  listers.
    • Free listings dilute the quality of results: 
      • Free  listings are posted and forgotten about. Email addresses change.  Businesses change name and addresses. Some companies go out of business  altogether. The result is a database full of rubbish information that is  of no use to anyone. By charging a nominal membership advertisers will  ensure their information is up to date and relevant. So if you're  looking for a free listing site we'd recommend you search google and go  elsewhere.
    • We want our website to provide quality  content not just quantity. That's why we started with fresh content and  deleted all the old free listers.

  • Would You Consider A Link Exchange in Lieu Of Payment?
    • Yes. By providing a link to our site from yours you are prooving you genuinely represent a company by having access to the website. It also shows us that you're willing to support us. So we like to reciprocate.
