The Christian Marketplace on Facebook is seeking vendors for their new site, Christian Marketplace and Fellowship. If you are a Christian vendor, author, pastor, evangelist, church, missionary, motivational speaker, or worship leader, please consider using the site to market your products and services.
Marketing is a very time consuming function, and if the procedure is not done properly or frequently enough, it could result in the failure of the business. This organization was created with a desire to help Christian businesses to stay in business so that they can continue doing God's work. The advantage of using this website is that the vendors do not have to get involved in the marketing process. There is a 30 free trial and then a charge to offset the costs in aggressively marketing the site.
To join Christian Marketplace and Fellowship, go to the website and register, the upload your content. Be sure to join the group on Facebook for the latest updates. We are looking for sponsors and if you would like to support Christian Marketplace & Fellowship, please give a donation in the sidebar, at the top right. Your support is appreciated!
Deuteronomy 28:12, 13 -"The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. 13 The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom."

Many business owners are operating their businesses without a marketing plan which could prevent them from earning the profits which they expect. A good marketing plan will help a business owner to stay on focus for branding the company, promoting the products, and expanding the business.
Based on research, a marketing plan will outline a strategy for the business owner to market his/her products or services. It would be a personalized plan based on the goals and objectives for the company for getting products and services in the customer’s hands. The marketing plan has to be developed in the early stages of the business in order to be effective.
The marketing plan is different from the business plan in that the business plan spells out the business ideas and how the business owner will put the ideas into action. Both plans are necessary for the growth of the business.
