Los Altos, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2007
A MerchantCircle member since February 2007, Sims Plumbing Company is a full service plumbing contractor located in Des Moines, IA. Like his father and grandfather before him, President/CEO Ken Sims understands what it takes to keep a business running smoothly - satisfied customers.
One of over 150,000 merchants using MerchantCircle nationwide, Sims Plumbing Company is among 1634 MerchantCircle members in Iowa. The company advertises on the MerchantCircle network and uses their blog to offer special promotions and advice to customers (like switching to low consumption toilets to save lots on your water bill). Using the MerchantCircle member logo on his business website connects the two web pages and helps the company find new customers.
"MerchantCircle is one of the best tools that I have found. It gives you a place to publish blogs, add photos and I started a newsletter" said Ken Sims. "You are able to connect with other local business people to use their exposure to expand your visibility. Not to mention the networking - I have made contacts that I'm sure wouldn't have happened with out MerchantCircle."
"We're please to see merchants leveraging our services to express themselves and connect with other local merchants, expanding their online presence" said MerchantCircle Chairman Ben Smith. "As we near our 1 year anniversary, the number of local merchants using our service continues to increase daily. We are even more committed to our objective of providing local merchants a simple and effective way to advertise online with blogs, coupons, newsletters and more."
Founded in 2005, MerchantCircle combines online reputation management capabilities with quick and easy online marketing tools for local business owners with a desire to use the internet to find new customers and grow their business. MerchantCircle is located on Main St. in downtown Los Altos, CA and is funded by Rustic Canyon Partners, Scale Ventures and Disney's Steamboat Ventures.
