This thing apparently was “born from one farmer’s struggle to find farm auction listings on the Internet.” That farmer being Dwayne Leslie, Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Canada. I’m posting this since Dwayne commented on my recent article about Sirius satellite radio. He subscribes to the ZimmCast and I’m sending him an invitation to be my guest on an upcoming program. This auction guide business looks like it has turned into serious business for Dwayne.
I also have to point out that Dwayne’s a blogger too! How ’bout them ag bloggers? We’re the few, the proud, the, well I don’t know what else we are but you get the point. Anyway, visit Dwayne on the Global Auction Blog.
The Global Auction Guide Media Group announces the launch of GlobalAuctionBlog.com to help participants keep up with new developments in the traditional onsite auction industry.
“Blogging is a new phenomenon in the Internet world ” says Global Auction Guide Media Group President Dwayne Leslie. “We wanted to be able to help the auction industry better communicate with the general public. This will give auction participants some insight into how the auction works. There is so much more to having an auction than just bid calling, that many people don’t realise. We also want to communicate with auctioneers in a better way to train them how to use the Internet and technology to it’s full advantage. There are so many snake oil salesmen trying to sell them services that they don’t necessarily need when marketing is truly what they should be concentrating their Internet efforts towards .”
Global Auction Guide Media Group first began in 2001 with the launch of Farm Auction Guide.com. This quickly grew into the largest farm advertising website on the Internet.
Global Auction Guide Media Group is the leading auction advertising network on the Internet with over 17,000 auctions listed in the past 5 years from over 300 of the most progressive auctioneers on the continent. Auctioneers are able to list an unlimited number of sales, items and photos for a very economical monthly fee.
