Q. Why are you providing this advertising service to local small businesses in every city?
We believe that every business deserve to be online and reap the benefits of the Internet to help make them grow. The Web is interactive, plus, easy access via wireless, broadbands, and devices (even phones), and the growing numbers of online users will make it the central key component to every business to have online presence of some sorts. We try to educate businesses about the use of the Internet and having websites, although, due to past experiences with former free lance web designers some resorted not to having a website that can help their business grow. Other business owners just don't want to step up to the next level. If big businesses have it, now you can too!
Our mission is three-fold, first, to be able to help small businesses get better advertising for their dollars online, and second, to help shoppers find local deals and products from stores they can trust. It's that simple and it just makes sense. Indirectly the city benefits due to sales taxes, which then redounds to benefit the community in terms of services, and then benefits all of us.
Q. How do you promote this website to online shoppers and to the Internet community?

Q. How will my business and products be found by shoppers?
Simple. We match your business keywords for listings and product names for classifieds to what people type when searching.
