    What are some sites you guys advertise on that get good publicity and help you sell goats? I am still new to the advertising world and am havin a rough time finding free advertising...

    Yahoo Groups. Go on yahoo, fill out a profile, go to the groups page and find one or more that suits your breed of goats. Most allow sales on Fridays.

    Most of my sales have been from flyers put up at the feed stores and word of mouth.
    Dont forget to contact your local FFA & 4H. We gave them a discount.
    Then be sure to go back to the places you put your flyers up or whatever media is used and thank FFA or 4H in writing.

    My website is the biggest seller for me. I also belong to several yahoo groups and i do friday markets there. I work at one of the local feed stores and we often have people come in looking for goats. I put flyers up on both the cenex boards as well as the bayview feed store. We have a marketplace paper that you can run adds for free, i put them there. I also have a hookup, we have a guy here who rehabilitates raptor birds, if he gets a hold of me i sell him young whethers at a discounted price. he butchers them and uses them for his birds.

    I am on 3 yahoo groups, so I agree that that is a good way to advertise. But I always check craigslist myself, so???
