How to Use the NFED Services Directory for Your Business

Why use the NFED to advertise your services?

It can be very difficult to know which way to turn when it comes to advertising your services online. Advertising a service is very different to selling a trailer, horse or a few items of tack. A service advertised in classifieds or selling group is easily overlooked and soon disappears down the list.

The NFED has been online since 1999 and in this time, has become the respected and established equestrian information site for central southern England and far wider surrounding area. The site receives many thousands of daily visitors, but it is far more than a website. There is also a popular weekly Newsletter and social media pages, giving many thousands of potential customers.

Social media pages may seem a cheap option, but you may be surprised to find out how hard it can be to get people to like your page and then how few of your followers actually see each post unless you pay to promote them. The Social media companies are there to make money, most of this comes from business advertising and it can be expensive. You must also be careful not to dismiss the many potential customers who prefer not to have social media accounts. The NFED is open to everyone, but still fully integrated with all three social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter and Google+, so all options are covered for you and if you have a Facebook page, a link can be included on your listing.

The NFED Services Directory is easy to use, categorised and searchable so that users can easily find the service that they require when they need it. The directory works on all devices including mobiles, no membership is required so it can be used by everyone.

Advertising your services in the Directory couldn't be easier, you submit your details and we do all the work for you. Links can be added to existing website and Facebook pages. Every new or renewed listings will be posted on the NFED home page, events pages, sent out to our mailing list and posted on our social media pages; Facebook, Twitter & Google+ giving access to a huge readymade audience at an unbeatable price.

If you opt for a Standard Listing, you can also use the Business News service at no extra cost. Again, all news items will appear on the main site, newsletter and all social media platforms.

If you run or host events, the directory is fully integrated with the NFED Event Diary. All events will contain a link to your listing to provide further information for site visitors, whilst giving extra free adverting for you.

There are no hidden extras to pay for, when you need help or your listing updated, just ask and we will be happy to help. Don’t be fooled by the low price, we could charge far more, but prefer to keep the NFED as a small business below the VAT threshold.

We offer two different directory options as businesses are not all the same and their requirements differ greatly. There is also a third Free Phone Book option. The phone book is run separately from the main directory, entry is completely free of charge.
