We are a solar, air source, pool heating and pool safety fencing supplier and installer based in Estepona, Southern Spain.

We are after any advice regarding local publications/online directories etc which are worth advertising in, the ones people receive and read!! (or preferably can put links on free).

We also welcome any advice regarding setting up a new business (we have registered etc) but want to get our name 'around'

Hi

How positive that you are starting a new business her eon the Costa del Sol!  I have been looking into safety pool fencing for my mother!.. 

I understand that France has a ruling which states that all pools require a safety fence or a cover?  Is Spain likely to follow suit?

Many thanks.

There is currently EU legislation which France is now enforcing, at great cost to those who do not comply with EU certified safety fences.

Spain as I understand is also about to start enforcing this EU legislation, as the holiday season approaches.

This enforcement is most welcome, (not just from a business point of view) - but for the safety of those wishing to come to Spain in 2010 for a holiday, (surely any extra sales pitch which makes Spain appeal to families to come on holiday will be welcome to the economy).

It would be welcome if you can let me know which publications you receive.

thanks

Hi

We are based in Estepona also. Do you live in the area? You will find most of the local ex-pats very friendly and helpful. When we started our property management company they all helped get our name out there. One of the local bar owners even let us put up a large sign in the pub! Most places with a message board will also let you put up advertising for free. We tried advertising in 'the resident' and did not get 1 phone call so i'd advise against that! 'The Sur In English' always got us some calls so I would recommend them. How long have we been here? My husband may know you?

Good Luck with it all,I hope you do well.

Many thanks for your advice.

We have been living here for 3 years, but started our company last year.  We live in central Estepona.

We now have a valid excuse to visiting local bars!!

Do keep in touch.

We live in the port. Do you ever go to 'The Irish Fiddler'? The land lord is lovely and always helpful.  Glad I gave you good reason to go to bars!!! Please keep in touch and let me know how it goes. Any help I can give you, just let me know.

We do not live far from the port, and have been to this bar, although obviously not often enough!!

We would like to keep in touch, and possibly may have to arrange to meet in a 'bar' or 2!!

As and when we have another question (which I am sure we will) we will be in touch.

Do you have a web site to contact you direct?

Unfortunately,our business did'nt work so well and we are moving back to the UK in around 2 months time.(hope to be back ASAP!) So I have closed down the web site. But any help I can give you in the mean time, I will do! Private message me on here and I will give you our contact details. Not sure i'm the best person to be offering advice on starting a business when ours did'nt work though! But I can certainly tell you what NOT to do and point you in the right direction of people round here that will help you on your way!
