Poultry Show & Swap Updates, October Issue #3
October 30, 2012
Welcome to the fourth issue of Poultry Show Central News. Thanks for your interest and support of our website. We strive to be a reliable and accurate resource for you.
Since last issue, we have visited with many of you at our informational tables at the Southern Ohio Show and at the Sussex County Poultry Association show in New Jersey. We are hoping to also attend the Ohio National show.
Our article in Backyard Poultry has been very successful in informing more people about the services of our website. We will continue to work with Backyard Poultry in future issues to provide our complete listing of shows for their Coming Events page.
We are pleased to have blown past 500 Likes on Facebook and continue to enjoy the community in our Facebook group. Come join us! We also are approaching 4000 unique visitors this month, a 60% increase from last month!
In celebration of reaching 500 Likes and also as a promotion to raise the necessary funds to pay for a table about the website at the Ohio National show, we are offering the following advertising specials for one month of advertising through the end of November:
*Featured Breeder Ad - $5
*Homepage Ad - $10
*Banner Ad - $15
This is a great opportunity to showcase your farm, product or birds to the showing community while helping us spread the word about our website at a large show. Funds are still uncertain and our deadline for reserving a table is coming up fast so if you're interested in taking advantage of this promotion, now is the time!
If any of you are interested in contributing to our "table fund" without advertising with us, we would happily accept donations via our Paypal account - firstname.lastname@example.org
We are pleased to have added several Canadian shows, as a service to our Canadian friends.

We continue to add more Breeders to our directory. Even if you don't have birds to sell currently, get your listing onto the directory for next year's breeding season. Also consider one of our Featured Breeder advertising options to get some extra exposure. We're getting great traffic on our Breeder Directory and this will only increase as there are more listings to browse.
We love hearing from you. Any comments, new information and especially any corrections are welcome!
Your fellow fanciers,
Kevin, Valerie and Kara Miller
