Welcome to the board. Gerry is correct. We do not accept paid advertising but very much welcome any product or service provider to come here and tell us about they do.
We do have opportunities to promote your product aside from the message board. Here's what you can do:
1. Author a press-release offering NACHI members some modest discount. Samples of other company's releases are at http://www.nachi.org/deals.htm
I will add it to that page, announce it myself in a separate post on this board, and put it in http://www.nachi.org/whats_new.htm
2. Offer free demos to members who have upcoming chapter meetings. A list of upcoming meetings is on our home page and at http://www.nachi.org/events.htm
Also a full-version to give away as a door prize might be an idea too. Member feedback will improve your software and their comments will promote your business.
I don't think a week goes by where someone doesn't offer NACHI a pile of $$$ to buy a banner add or an official endorsement or something. Our http://www.nachi.org/stats.htm
make this the place to advertise. These fine companies are only trying to get their product out there. However we're happy to promote it for no charge. We want to know about everything that's out there, not just the products and services willing or able to buy advertising. This no-paid-advertising policy is costly to NACHI, frustrating for the vendor, but beneficial to our visitors and members.
