What you get for FREE
Our “Town Square” is your “Town Square”.
- If you send us your news we will publish it.
- If you write an editorial we will print it.
- If you send us your business card we will promote it.
- If you comment on the website, people will read it.
In the business world there are many organisations, and affiliations that aid networking with other business people and from these relationships – joint ventures, trades alliances and other opportunities result. We are probably the only local organization which offers our community a networking experience for free and without a commitment in time, money or travel.
All you have to do to be part of our network is to share your news and information with us, so we can share it with others.
Whilst a number of good newspapers are available for publishing your news and information, the personal “one-on-one” experience is lacking because there is no easy way to establish a “two way” relationship with your readers.
We feel that our community website offers our authors and readers an opportunity to establish one-to-one relationships with each other. Subscribers receive local news and information and business people are able to offer promotion, vouchers and discounts in our electronic newsletter.
I feel that by sharing articles news and information online, organizations and businesses are able to break through the impersonal barrier that exist in paper print and establish mutually beneficial relationships with other local readers and contributors to the Glasshouse County Community website.
Some business people recognise that when they provide quality information, which is truthful and engaging they are able to generate phone calls and links back to their own websites.
Consider the paper print world for a moment: no matter how much you paid, your news item or advertisement it will only be available for a limited time. We offer an avenue, which is FREE and has a longer “shelf life”, first in the electronic newsletter which we send out periodically and then on the website and then in internet search engines.
It’s worth mentioning that we are exclusively about People and Business in our own Glasshouse Country region, we are a “locals only” venue and we are uninterested in advertising or promoting anyone outside of our community.
So if you are still interested, consider getting involved.
