At our preparedness buyers club website, www.safecastleroyal.com, we recently launched an idea aimed at emphasizing the community aspect of the club. Namely, we introduced an online "classifieds" section for our shoppers.
First, we landed several dozen major US affiliate advertisers who are making special offers to our shoppers (club members and non-members). Among those outfits now represented in our classified sections: Napster, Fox's "24" show, StubHub, Sirius Satellite Radio, Starbucks, Restaurant.com, Toolking, Realty Store, Stauer, uBid, Zero Halliburton, E-Loan, Edmunds.com, Northern Tool and Equipment, and many, many more!
So it's cool that our shoppers can get great deals on goods we don't directly offer them in our store, but that ARE available via our classifieds.
But the real reason for the classifieds in the first place was to create a venue for our club members to post their own classifieds--business or personal, graphic ad or text-only--free of charge, no limitations (other than for good taste). It may not be a big thing for some, but for others, it could be a great way to connect with others in our growing community.
Have a look. Let us know if you have any comments or suggestions!
