About Us & How it all Started
It was while I was creating my own art website and learning to market that to the public, that I began to catch on to something important regarding the internet and my customer base. I learned these lessons, and now offer this knowledge to you with these words and also with the use of the Horse Show Central website
1) You can't have too many people learning and reading about what you do and what you offer.
The theory here is that you 'get known' by more people, plus you are easier to "find" by more people.
IF you are involved with Saddlebred horses, for example, it is good to advertise in Saddlebred magazines or websites. However, it is very smart to extend to sites dealing with shows, or horses in general, or stable directories or stallion directories, etc. etc. HSC offers all of this in one online spot. I mean, if you have a Saddlebred business, you might also value Friesian folks or Hackney folks, or folks searching for academy assistance and horses. Oh, there are just so many extensions here.
If you are involved with Quarter Horses, you might want to be visible to cutting, ranch, sorting, barrel racing etc folks !!
It has been my lifetime experience and my long time website experience that often those who own one breed, own another breed, or one discipline spills over to interest in other disciplines. When you are a part of this website, you are in front of your particular breed or group customer base all year long, AND you are also constantly there "to be found" by all horse people.
Most websites rank in the search engines for maybe the name of their own website, or maybe they even rank for their own single breed. HSC ranks on hundreds of horse industry words and breeds !!!!
The value of a one-stop portal website that ranks on hundreds of keyphrases, not just one breed, is hat such a site generates traffic, traffic and more traffic, so it's a good place to be visible.
Some areas of HSC offer FREE ads, but every horse person can run $5 a year Standard ads on this site, or they can opt for a featured listing for a very low annual fee. Check out the advertising page, the "how to place an ad" page, and the page about featured listing information..
For our readers we have provided many on-site search facilities to enable you to specify exactly what it is you wish to learn - breed, states, months, services, horse rescue, etc. You will know where/how and who to call or email.
Most of all, USE the site as the tool it was designed to be, and ENJOY.
Most Cordially, and with best wishes for your personal success.
