Online Local Directory Bookmarks

We believe that businesses are a vital part of their community and should be listed on as many directories as possible to help the members of those communities have the most information to make the best decisions and find the right company for their needs. We believe that adding your local business to this local directories list is not only to earn your business more exposure, but will help you better understand what your customers are looking for so that if there is something not already listed on your website, that you might add it when editing your web design. Examples of information collected included: hours of operation, pictures and/or video of your business, payment methods accepted, parking information, coupons, services, and products. Some local directory web sites may ask how long you’ve been in business or whether or not you’re licensed. Some are free and others cost a fee.

Erich Stauffer believes your business will benefit from being listed in these directories because your business will have more exposure and more opportunity in front of a potential customer, which increases the chances they call you. We believe that when businesses get more customers, their communities benefit, and when communities grow, businesses grow with them. This positive cycle is what excites us about helping businesses add value to their communities every day.
