First News Fall 2007

Local People - Global Sales

   Almost everybody has an item in the attic, garage, or around the house they're willing to part with, but what is it worth and how does one sell it?  RuralWide Web, Inc. operated by James Cooper in La Veta offers a secure online buying and selling environment that does just that. James, a Webmaster and certified Colorado Internet Master, maintains the day-to-day details and site maintenance at Call or email him with a question, or request FREE research on what a specific collectible might be worth. 

     Sell items at RuralWide Web General Store for as little as $1 per item depending on its value (photos cost extra). When the item sells for the agreed price, RuralWide Web collects a 30% commission on the sales price.  Customers can also auction items to the highest bidder in their eBay Store (eBay fees apply). Buyers pay for shipping, handling, insurance and tracking, using leading carriers. Buyers and sellers feel secure and confident shopping at RuralWide Web General Store for gifts, jewelry, fashion, fine art and crafts from area artisans, businesses and individuals. Review feedback from satisfied buyers at the website in a secure shopping environment with eBay, Pay Pal, Miva  Merchant E-commerce, Google Checkout and networking. RuralWide Web, Inc. advertises via radio, newsprint, snail and email, and Google Adwords pay-per-click, which reaches customers around the world.

James Cooper
   Mr. Cooper's goal is to provide electronic options to promote and sustain local businesses and artists in the region through e-commerce, thereby expanding markets internationally for rural products and services. This will improve the local economy after the tourists leave by developing regional, national, and global consumer markets for business-to-business, and business-to-customer networks.

     RuralWide Web can also provide website design and hosting services, web maintenance, graphic design, and marketing for non-profit organizations, businesses, artisans and individuals throughout southern Colorado and northern New Mexico.  If you'd like a reference just ask one of his clients: Darkwood  Studios, Twila Star Studios, Stone Mountain Colorado, and Rambler 66 (Walsenburg); La Veta, Peggy Zehring Fine Art, Southern Colorado Homes, La Veta  School of the Arts, and Kenny Schneider Public Art & Mixed Media (La Veta);, Colorado Mountain Spirit Real Estate, or Santa Fe Trail Scenic Byway (Trinidad).
