We are extremely excited to announce that the Villager Business Directory, created by Ross Williams, is now live! We believe this website is a first for club rugby in SA and feel that by having a concept such as this the Villager business community can be brought together in a way that will benefit both the club and the businesses.
The website acts as a yellow pages for companies to advertise their products or services to the Villager community so that they may benefit from the potential sale/use of their services by Villager members. At the same time the website forms a platform that will help the club generate sustainable revenue in order for the club to continue improving.
The website is designed so that companies or individuals claim their own space on the website, they create the advert themselves and can make as many changes as they want without waiting for an admin to do it for them. Each listing receives the first month free thereafter a R50 fee per month is required to continue advertising the company.
We have used the online payment platform, Payfast instead of the more popular PaylPal platform so that payments can be made in Rands as opposed to only Dollars or Pounds Sterling. Payments can be done via either EFT or by Credit Card and have to be made monthly. Unfortunately a recurring monthly option is unavailable at present. However we have created 6 and 12 month options for those who wish to not worry about monthly payments. The longer options also feature discounts.
We encourage members to visit the site and register so as to create a listing for their companies. We already have over twenty companies listed including ESET and TYTEC to name a few, to view the full listing of companies please visit the website by clicking on the link below.
