The new way to find stuff

Hi All,

I'm not sure if this is within forum rules or not, but there's only one way to find out.

I have recently launched a new website (see my signature below) because it is so hard to find suppliers for specific items. "'**'/ IF \'**'" businesses register on our new site, we will all have somewhere to find, what we want.

so, I guess what I am trying to say is, if you want to make it easier for yourself and the boating community, spread the word and suggest that suppliers you know, register.

I hope this will get out to all of those on here, who understand how hard it is to find suppliers.

Thanks for reading this.

Pete

Nice idea, but how does this vary from what google already does?

Simple, do a google search, for a plumber in Ibiza. Then tell me that this way is not better.

Shame there's not an optician. It's HAIR extensions and HAIR, NAILS & MAKEUP. But this is the start. When businesses make their adverts, you can find them. Yes, it is a catch 22 (no adverts, no visitors ---- no visitors, no adverts) but I think it's one worth working at.

The more businesses who offer their services or supplies, the more you, and everyone else, will have to choose from.

In this age of the internet and computerised equipment, how can it be so hard, to find a decent upholsterer in the south west of England, beats me.

Anyway, I have made it now. If people use it, great. If not, who's loss is it?

But it only works if the companies register, rendering it useless for 99.99% of everything people may want? Or am I missing something?

My point exactly. All we need to do is explain to these businesses.... If you want to be found, there is a new way for people to find you.

If they don't want to be found, there's nothing that anyone can do.

On that note, any business that can't afford Ä10 a year (half price for boatmad members, for the first registration) to let people know what they have and where they are, maybe should consider a different business. (maybe nail extensions in Greece).

Nice one

The only problem is, because they have not put their details on finditfme, you could be the only person who knows this answer. And, when people leave comments about their experiences, with the business, other people will have an informed decision, not just what someone told them.

As I have said before, the reason for making this site, was because it was impossible to find things where I live. The more that I looked into it, this is the same everywhere. So, if you are French, looking for a plumber in Ibiza, you will find one and you will understand what the advert says....If the plumber has made his advert............And not a google result...(Search for plumber in Ibiza) About 14,500,000 results (0.17 seconds)

Just to answer many questions in one go.

Yes, 50% discount for Boatmad members. But, this can't last indefinitely.
