New Web Opportunities for Traders.

You may have received a brochure at your stall on Sunday from a mob called Market Central ( offering an online presence for traders. For $1 per day you get a webpage outlining your products and trading locations.
A similar setup for smaller retailers will be offered by a new website called Spruiks ( which starts in September. Basically, theses sites are offering a simple form of online presence for small retailers without the expense of setting up a full-blown website.
Our initial impression is that QVM traders already have these facilities for free through the QVM website, with the added bonus of social networking exposure. The QVM website has a long way to go before it can be considered consumer friendly but hopefully that will be achieved with the upcoming site revamp.
You may wish to examine the new offerings and we welcome your comments
