Want to be a hero to businesses in your community?
Just help them attract more local customers. How? By partnering with us. We team up with Business Development groups, Chambers of Commerce and other community organizations, to provide interactive, search-optimized business directories that bring online and smartphone-using customers to downtown businesses.
We work with each business owner to create a showcase page featuring their information, location, photos, promotions, events – along with a live feed of their Facebook and Twitter posts. By aggregating all of this engaging content from dozens, even hundreds, of local businesses, each community marketplace becomes a powerful magnet for search engines like Google – and the local shoppers who use them. We’ve already helped thousands of local businesses in 40+ US markets.
If you’re committed to helping your local businesses utilize the Internet to thrive, contact us. We’ll make it happen.
