Fishing in Australia is a big industry: not just commercial fishing, but also recreational fishing.

Why Join Fishing-Melbourne.com?

Let’s say you have a tackle shop in Melbourne. You operate a local fishing charter, or maybe you are a marine mechanic. You’re probably very good at what you do, but if you don’t put yourself out there and spread the word, nobody is going to know about you. If nobody has heard about you, then you’re not going to make any money. 
That’s why businesses invest so much into marketing and advertising. Everyone in the fishing and boating community in Australia is well aware of the importance of social media marketing and other types of online marketing.
You’ve probably spent tens of thousands of dollars on Facebook ads yourself, hoping to grow your business. But how has that really worked for you? the high Facebook fees, the filters and all that?  
The secret in the local Melbourne business community is that Facebook advertising can be a complete waste of money. There are better ways to market your business, such as participating in a local Melbourne fishing forum such as Fishing-Melbourne.com.
