Front Porch Forum

How can my business or nonprofit use FPF?

Get listed in the FPF Business Directory

Vermonters turn to Front Porch Forum to find local services and products every day.  Add your business or nonprofit to our new online FPF Business Directory to help your customers find you.  This directory is visible to FPF members and everyone else, and it's searchable by Google and other search engines.  Select a free or paid FPF Business Access Plan to have your business or nonprofit listed in the directory.  To assure the best response, be sure to add your phone number, web address, business description, and select the best fitting business category.  (FPF member account needed - see below.)

Post your announcements to your local FPF e-newsletter(s)

More than half of the households in most Vermont communities read their daily FPF e-newsletter.  Place your message there with your free or paid FPF Business Access Plan.  Upgrade your plan for more access.  (FPF member account needed - see below.)

Add your events to local FPF Community Calendar(s)

Every town and neighborhood in Vermont has an FPF Community Calendar and your business or nonprofit can add your events there as well.  (FPF member account needed - see below.)

Tune into local issues - read and search neighbor postings

People in your area talk about what they read on their local FPF.  You can tune in too by subscribing to your FPF e-newsletter and by browsing and searching the posting archive on our website.  (FPF member account needed - see below.)
