Good morning, I know that you are closed for the winter and look forward to seeing you open in spring
My apols for the delay in processing your Authenticity forms, FMNZ has been very busy trying to do everything at once with not enough time in the day and a volunteer committee. We have adressed a number of the issues and are looking forward to a very proactive year. Details of our just past conference will be sent out shortly so that all can share the information.
I have updated your website with Authentic certification logos and will are posting out stallholders certificates( dated June 2010). We have now added many other features to the marketground websites, to your right is the stackers that can have there own link (my recommendation is that you sell these at $90 for two months to local business to promote themselves or be associated with your farmers' market - we call them friends of the market).
The news section is the most effective tool for communication to stallholders and to customers. CLICK HERE
for the three basics steps on just how easy it is and i am only ever a phone call away if you need assistance
FMNZ will also be offering webinars on website. Topics can include "101 Basics", "how to make money" from your website", "effective newsletters" "stallholder pages" etc etc.
However before we start doing this we need to populate (add content) to as much as we can for each market and stallholder page, this can easily done by the manager adding photos and putting in text about stallholders or their markets. Dont expect stallholders to edit their sites to begin with and it is highly recommended that you populate the basic information and photos about them
The other key part of websites is that if you are not comfortable in doing it then look for somebody who can in your market, students and the younger generation are normally very quick and grasp some of the basic fundamentals better than you and I, nobody can break your website and you can share the editing and updating easily amongst several people.
There are many more other tools and features including databasing, customizing, radio stations etc and training videos can be found by CLICK HERE
I look forward to working with you
