Free Small business advertsing on CL new site...

Uploaded Image

Calling all small business cooers..I had an email from CL this morning telling me about thier new updated site so went in to have a look and lo and behold for a limited period on their forum you can advertise your business for free complete with a link to your website and a photo so thought I owould rush over and pop in an advert and tell you lot before they change their mind. Hopefully the link below should take you right there. Whether you love, hate or don't care a tinker's whistle about the magazine I think this isnt to be sneezed at!

Country Living advertising

pooh told you I can't do links !! (written before she realised she knows a man who can)

Re:
I can't do the links either UPL.

Good point you raise-
Any free advertising has got to be a good thing whatever your take on CL is.

Make the most of it folks those who might benefit.

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar Hmm, two dogs for the price of one? You reckon I could advertise Asbo Jack with a free Phantom Pooper shoved in? Twisted Evil
I looked at the site and couldn't even begin to figure it out...looks like they've amalgamated all their mag sites in one... stumbled out totally confused.Confused

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar You lot are hilarious! Not sure I can face going back to look again - the ads are still flashing and leaping and bounding and make me dizzy. But love that you've had the chutzpah to advertise Purplecoo!
Oh and SBS, hate to say it but the Phantom Pooper is another dog - aged and incontinent and colitic.....sigh. No, she wouldn't fit in Asbo Jack....no matter how hard we try.

Re:
Frances's Avatar Hello UPL,

I also think those tiles are quite charming.

Wondering if CL just wanted to give a little first anniversary gift to all of us over here at purple coo?

Re:
Jackofall's Avatar I much prefer the allaboutyou.com site to the CL one, much more restrained, and I didn't notice any intrusive ads.

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar Lucky you Jacko - they were dancing all over my page.

Posted by: Exmoorjane on 29th Apr 2008 at 02:56PM

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Yup all over my page as well and even landing slap bang over the bit of text I was trying to read . . .

A touch of irony from Jacko, perhaps?Cool

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar Duh....just got it. Thank you ATM for the slap round the head! Very Thick of Somerset. Very Happy

Posted by: Exmoorjane on 29th Apr 2008 at 04:54PM

Re:
Jackofall's Avatar No, no irony from me, the only 'moving' ads are the big one down the right hand side and the one in the header, and that's only movement within the ads, not shooting across the page like they used to.
