    Exclamation How can I advertise/market to merchants?
    Hey all,

    Does anyone know a good way to advertise to merchants who do most of their business online. We provide fraud screening software to small and medium sized merchants who do around 10,000 orders per month or less. Especially high-risk merchants who might experience above normal order fraud rates.

    We are looking to either purchase advertising from any website or newsletter that specifically targets online merchants.

    If anyone knows of or owns such resources, please get back to me. Perhaps we could even peruse some kind of partnership.

    OK, here is the E-mail I sent to haiko:
    =================================================
    Hello ABestWeb, I have some questions from your page http://abestweb.com/merchants/newforum.htm

    1. What is a "Full Reply" for plan B? Please explain.

    2. For plan E, we may be interested in purchasing this for $750. How many users do you have? How many real deliveries? (users - bounce backs)?

    3. Our website is www.orderspy.com we sell an anti-fraud service to online merchants. Do you believe advertising on your site is a good place to start? Do you help write the ad?

    4. What type of advertising would you recommend, E-mail or banners, or? Are there any more effective ways you can recommend?

    5. Would you be willing to structure any type of partnership with OrderSpy such that you deliver free advertising for a portion of our sales or company for a given length of time? If not, do you know anyone who would?

    6. Do you know anyone offhand who can design us a professional banner ad for as cheap as possible?

    Please contact me at your earliest convenience.
    =================================================

    I would suggest InternetRetailer.com. Here at ABestWeb.com, you'll reach quite a few merchants, but mainly you'll reach affiliates. At InternetRetailer.com, you'll reach primarily merchants.

    Thanks for the InternetRetailer.com link
    Thanks, I will look into InternetRetailer.com. Does anyone know about how many hits this site gets per month, or have done any advertising with them before?

    Thanks

    Hey, haiko has still not responded to my advertising inquiry, and I dont think he will. Has anyone else found good places to advertise our anti-fraud service in the meantime?

    Thanks
