Qu: ADVERTISING

We provide an effective marketing platform for companies and their products. We try to keep costs to a minimum. Compared to Trade Fairs we feel our service offers advertisers an excellent alternative to costly promotions . We have no hidden costs. All exporters ads are owned by the respective companies, factories & shops we market for and we are not responsible for any infringements of copyright, misleading information which is given to us by these respective businesses. If in doubt we do try to make sure information given for advertising purposes is correct. If wrong we will delete and instruct the Business concerned.

Qu:  PLACING PAID ADVERTISING

We do not favor any parties and offer value for money advertising on a first come first served basis. Asian participants at the  Canadian National Exhibition paid in excess of $7,000 for stalls, fares, hotels etc with zero sales. The last German Fair also had very poor sales. Traders will get value at a fraction of the cost eg. $US30 for 6 months advertising & we send you prospective customers. We currently work for 18 Thai companies & 8 overseas companies marketing their products and or services. Paid advertising will receive priority & once we reach our target of advertisers any further submitted ads will be saved & slotted as when expiry dates come up.

Qu: EXHIBITION FAIRS

Are undoubtedly getting expensive since the advent of the internet with promoters now extracting higher stall prices & Companies who now realize it is the internet that will assist them. Even IBM pulled out of fairs in favour of other advertising promotions such as direct online marketing strategies. Thailand & Asian Companies are now looking at other media sources to access markets. This is one way that minimizes salesreps & costly advertising to access new markets.

Qu: HOW WE DELIVER

By providing links to over 100 top Advertising sites including having our own Publishing business in Thailand-FREE. To advertise effectively you must utilize the media, not just the internet, which includes newspapers, flyers, advertising media, business cards & word of mouth to convey your message. Internet is part of this but 38% is other media sources. Now the internet has too many bad sites so the competition is great. Our media links make this an even more effective marketing source for our customers. It is important you convey to readers your URL or product lines. We will publish listings of our advertisers in a whose who index in our newspaper.

Qu: PAYMENTS

People are very concerned regarding paying for services that the other party may have access to their accounts at will. We do have e-commerce but we feel it is important that our customers Trust us and that they will receive the high service they expect from us in return for what they are paying for. Details of our account will be sent to you. We refund all payments less service bank charges if you are not happy or where we cannot for some unknown reason beyond out control deliver.

We oversee the sending of over 12 FCL mixed container loads per month on average and we aim to increase this.

When the goods are ready and shipping docs scanned and sent to you and Bill of Lading complies then final monies are released to us. On airfreight due to the airwaybill being held by us until payment we prefer full payment as if we hold and the goods arrive prior to receiving the funds we are not responsible. We only release the bill when full payment made This ensues total transparency for you and the other way is by Letter of Credit or [ LC ].  The fee is SUS200 per transaction and depending on the complexity of the transaction.
