Good to hear from you.

Pointing a domain does nothing for seo purposes.

I would dedicate that domain to a site about presentation folders. Get into some detail and then provide links to the other site so they can order anything. That way Google sees it as a relevant site about folders.

For example, you might have posts dedicated to answering questions people have regarding folders and providing the answer. That way when they enter their question in Google your blog post shows up quickly and with any luck on the first page.

Also pages dedicated to different types of folders - folders with holes already in them, folders without holes, glossy etc.,. And how they get used in the business world.

Maybe a page on the history of presentation folders - did the Romans or Egyptians develop the idea? Keeps the site light and interesting.

From Wikipedia -"Although the origin of the file folder is uncertain, many theories point to U.S. Civil War lieutenant Joseph P. Meisburger as the first to develop the concept."

Also from Wikipedia

A presentation folder is a kind of folder that holds loose papers or documents together for organization and protection. Presentation folders usually consist of a sheet of heavy paper stock or other thin, but stiff, material which is folded in half with pockets in order to keep paper documents. Presentation folders function much like that of a file folder for organizational purposes. They can be either printed or plain and can be used, amongst other things, as a tool for business presentations to customers to aid in the sales process.
Uses of presentation folders

Presentation folders come in many different styles to suit a variety of purposes. Most all are produced by a company to provide marketing for a product (business) and/or service, but they can fulfil other functions. A few examples would be a company producing a new product and wanted to show their customers all the benefits of that product in an organized fashion, or folders used to organise documents for distribution to delegates at a conference.

Some types of presentation folders:

   Standard 9" x 12" two-pocket
   Tri-fold or Tri-panel
   Capacity (usually with a 1/4"+ spine to hold more)
   Tabbed (for use in hanging files or filing cabinets)
   Mini or small
   Green or Eco-friendly

You can fill out a site by going into how your company is the best at producing these types of folders. Then put a hyperlink to have then "click here to get more information" That link then sends the viewer directly to the presentation folder order area on your site.

When you type in presentation folders in Google it comes back with 6 million results and related topics at the bottom show this
