A Greater Town
As an optional part of your advertising package, we can add to your Internet presence by creating and designing a business listing, display ad, feature article, or a town sponsorship for you on our partner site A GREATER TOWN (www.agreatertown.com).
What is “A Greater Town?”
A GREATER TOWN is a popular, comprehensive web site featuring a wide-ranging compilation of business postings, real estate listings, community events, maps, local weather, art, culture and more.
Each town has its own home page where all the listings for that particular area can be found; currently there are over 30,000 different towns represented.
By adding your business to the rapidly-growing A GREATER TOWN community, we make you visible to thousands of potential customers, whether they are searching for your business name, type of business, or geographic area.
It’s a great way to introduce your business to your community, announce a new product, advertise a special sale, publicize a grand opening or new location, communicate a special event, recognize an employee for outstanding achievement, or commemorate a business milestone.
Is Your Business on the Internet?
- Today, having your business appear on the Internet is just as important as it was to be in the yellow pages years ago.
- Although many businesses have their own web site, Entrepreneur magazine reported that as of January 2010, almost half of all small businesses still do not have a web site.
- The report further states that, “a company website is a basic, must-have marketing tool for the 21st Century.”
You’ll Get Found … on A Greater Town!
There is not just one single solution to make sure your business gets found when your customers search on the Internet. Similarly to the way a bridge is constructed of a series of interdependent support beams, girders and cables, if you want to be found on the Internet, you need to build a structure of interconnected links, articles and directory listings.
A GREATER TOWN is an exceptional choice to serve as the cornerstone of your Internet presence by publicizing your business in an attractive, informative and personalized way … and that gets picked up and ranked highly by Google, Yahoo, Bing and other directories.
By using your advertisement on A GREATER TOWN as an integral part of your overall Internet strategy, you’ll significantly increase the chances that your customers will find you!
