Can I advertise on this site or put a link on this site?
Any state or federal government agency or non-profit organization may be represented on business.idaho.gov if they license or regulate business activities or offer business-related services. Local agencies, such as city and county clerks’ offices, are not represented individually in the text pages, because there are so many and their requirements vary. Their information is included in the Business Wizard. There is no cost to be included. This is not a commercial site, so no advertising is accepted.
If your organization fits the above criteria and you want your agency or organization to be listed on the site, send us an email, then we will review your site for possible inclusion. Please do not place a link on your site and then expect us to provide a reciprocal link.

I am interested in joining a service club where I can help the community and promote my business. Can you recommend one?
Many excellent service clubs exist in even the smallest communities. Among them are Rotary, Kiwanis, Optimist, Lions Clubs, Elks and more. Most focus on specific types of community and/or international assistance. If you have a passion for certain activities, such as those involving youth, education, the environment, recreation or international development, there may be a group for you.
If promoting your business is your primary purpose in seeking a service club, you may be better served by joining your local chamber of commerce or a leads group. Chambers are listed in the Resource Wizard on this site. To find leads groups in your area that may be accepting new members, make an internet search or secure a referral from a business associate.
