It’s a project that’s been two years in the making, but we’re delighted to finally launch the latest member of the Trials Central family with our new dedicated Trials Business Directory at www.trialdirectory.com
The need for such a facility was identified a long time ago as there isn’t a week goes by when there aren’t multiple enquiries come into the Trials Central Inbox asking “Where can I get X?”, “I need parts for Y”, “I live in Z, where’s my nearest bike shop?” and questions of a similar nature. This is also reflected in the number of “Where can I get?” questions that are asked in our forums.
Extremely simple to use, both for users and for advertisers, this all-new site also addresses the number of advertising enquiries we get from businesses that die a death when we start talking about banner requirements and pixel sizes. Generally, people don’t have the skills to produce the banners themselves and often the cost of having banners made exceeds the cost of the advertising.
With packages starting at FREE (as we know how much Trials people like free things!) the site has been designed to be extremely affordable to every business out there – from one man operations upwards. We will be using vast monthly global reach of Trials Central to promote this with permanent links across TC and commencing paid advertising campaigns on popular platforms. We’ll also be pulling information from the directory for presentation on Trials Central – events, offers and banners for those selecting the Platinum package bringing further reach and exposure.
Got a Trials related business? It literally takes few minutes to add your listing and you can go back at any point and edit/change/add to it. There is also extensive help on making the most of your listing available on the site with support available to get it just right and reach your target market. Personalised statistics are also available to judge effectiveness.
NOT IN THE UK?
No problem. The site is designed to be global and we’ll be adding multi-language support in due course. With the Internet totally changing global sales, this is the ideal platform for any Trial related business, regardless of location.

UPDATE 2ND NOV
Phase two of this project is now in place. Businesses with Gold and Platinum packages on Trial Directory have the ability to create Special Offers and Events. Any offers posted on the Directory will now automatically be cross-posted to the Trials Central Forums. As the busiest part of the site, this ensure maximum publicity for any offers being run. Events will be added later (once there are some on there for testing!)
