Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 8, 2007
The same company that has successfully managed Austin's own LocalCatering.com for the past six years, announced today that sister site GetMeQuotes.com has expanded its online reach with five new vertical portals.
FindCosmeticSurgeons.net, FindQualityContractors.com, NationalCareProviders.com, FindQualityCaterers.com and LocalCorporateCatering.com are all industry-intensive vessels delivering customers through the site's proprietary engine and directly to GetMeQuotes' extensive list of various industry experts and leading businesses.
The expansion marks the continued success of this Austin business. Now with more than a dozen employees, in 2007 the company launches it first major marketing campaign, including television, radio and billboards in the Austin area.
"Local Catering continues to be the viable, well-oiled machine that drove the innovation that is Get Me Quotes and its portals," says President and CEO Enrique Rangel, a University of Texas Business School graduate. "We are now partnering with experts in several service-related industries. The initial five portals are just the beginning."
Whereas Get Me Quotes has been member-centric in the past, catering to the vendor side of the transaction, the new portals seek balance. By adding quality content and industry-specific data, these portals are as much as a resource for end-users as they are a tool for members.
To date Rangel's portfolio of businesses have been featured in news services like Austin Business Journal and News 8 Austin. In 2006, they even organized the craft services and catering for a major network television show.
The technology is simple for the user, but the back-end quantifies year of perfecting and proprietary expertise. Rangel, an expert in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and website marketing, draws customers seeking a wide range of services to his sites by managing data to get those sites listed at the top of all major search engines.
Once at the site, customers search for vendors offering a wide range of services from air conditioning repair to chiropractic care. By filling out a simple form, they are logged into the system as a lead for GetMeQuotes and its affiliate portals' extensive but exclusive member list. These leads are then verified by a staff member before being sent the appropriate members, at which point the member purchases only the leads they want through the company's "pay-per-lead" program. Members pay no monthly or annual fees.
"Get Me Quotes and its portals are tools that can help any Austin-area service-oriented business drive customers to their doors," says Rangel. "We hope that by continually expanding and upgrading we can become a powerful partner to the Austin business community."
