For more than two decades, the Sportslink Directory has been the industry 'bible' for trade buyers ... and for the last two years, a fully-searchable version has been freely available on our website.
TRADE and major buyers look for the product or service they want among about 8000 listings under 1200 product categories. In print or online, their search yields the names of specialist companies able to supply them;
Or if you know the Brand but not the supplier company, you can look that up (or search online) instead.
Looking up the company's details (just a click away online) delivers location and contact details including phone, fax, email and website (the last two with links online). The listing details Executive Staff, State Branches/Distributors (with contacts again) and Product Range.
Logos are shown with company and Brand listings to confirm identification (see sample pages right).
Take a look at the online Directory now. If you're not already a member, you'll need to join(free to industry companies and personnel).
LISTING your supplier company in the Sportslink Directory costs just A$275 (including A$25 GST) ... less than the cost of most online promotions, yet it works for you all year!
You can list online at any time, but the popular printed edition appears only in January each year. About 3000 copies of this are printed and circulated to trade readers, mostly in Australia and New Zealand.
Online listings can be updated at any time, and Update information is published in the print editions in April, July and October. Buyers' Guide features in these issues also draw on (and reprint) sections of the Directory data, boosting the exposure of participating companies.
Your Directory listing also adds functionality to any online Showcase and advertising promotion you may undertake during the year: Readers are linked to your Company's details, with response mechanisms and details of your distribution network. All of this mechanism is 'just part of the service' for Sportslink advertisers.
THERE are two main ways of setting up a listing:
• Download the Directory entry form - click here (1.1Mb download) - fill in the details (make sure to tick all the products/services you offer) and send it back to us with payment. You can fax the form to 02-4381 0246 or scan the completed last four pages and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then handle the online upload for you.
• Do it yourself online -click this link, after joining or logging on as a member - and you can enter all your company details, upload a logo, and pay for a 12-month listing online. Again do remember to Control-Click all the products/services you offer ... it's what makes the search function work. We will extract the data for the print edition.
