Do you have a rural business ? If so then you may want to consider becoming a member of the Countryside Connection website.
At first glance you may think that this is just another directory of rural businesses but you would be wrong. The founder, Heléne Leichter-Saxby goes to great lengths to make sure that new members get alot of coverage and have access to a wide network of rural businesses.
Each month a newsletter goes out to all the members with features about new members and letters from current members which helps to raise your businesses profile and presence on the web. Helene also takes time to make links between members with similar rural businesses and encourages networking and correspondence between members to help forge new business relationships and networks.
In addition, Countryside Connection has just started a Featured Member listing on the home page which provides extra coverage for your rural business.
Countryside Connection currently has members whose businesses fall into the falling categories:
Bed & Breakfasts and Self-Catering,
Farms, Country & Artisan Products,
Restaurants & Pubs,
Arts & Crafts,
Activities & Adventures,
Wedding, Conference, Spa & Retreat Venues,

B&B Inns & Homes for Sale.
So if you have a rural business that fits into one of these categories then I would highly recommend that you visit the Countryside Connection website and become a member today.
