Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 10, 2008
Fave Media Inc., creator of the next-generation local search engine GetFave.com (http://www.getfave.com), today announced the expansion of its groundbreaking platform across the nation. GetFave.com delivers uncluttered, comprehensive business listings augmented with 30-60 second video commercials, giving consumers unprecedented insight into their neighborhood business community. The web site contains over 16 million business listings in all categories, making it easy to find any product or service locally. GetFave.com delivers only relevant business search results, organized geographically to the user's specifications, by address, street intersection, neighborhood, zip code, or city.
Video is rapidly emerging as the key driver of consumer response in local search. Fave specializes in highly customized web video ads for businesses of all sizes, providing consumers with fun, educational information as they shop. After watching a video, consumers are much more likely to act, either visiting the business's web site, calling, emailing, or responding to a special offer such as a coupon. Fave is able to effectively track and report consumer response, offering tremendous value to the business.
"We allow small enterprises to create a rich, dynamic message for their target audience, then ensure that interested consumers see their advertising," said Co-Founder and Chairman Jeff Seymour. "Creating a solid web presence is all about relevance. The internet has surpassed all other methods for consumers to research local products and services, but the irrelevance of most web advertising favors companies with big budgets. Fave makes sure local businesses are not left behind."
The web site allows users to search by keyword and location to find businesses in the desired geography. Fave provides detailed information, such as web site, address, maps and directions, phone number, hours of operation, and keywords that describe the specialties of each business. The results are highlighted with video, banners, and special offers from Fave's advertisers. Videos and business listings can be shared with friends through popular social networking sites. "Fave's mission is to provide a clean, comprehensive, relevant search experience," says Jon Seymour, Co-Founder and CEO, "that efficiently caters to the local community and creates a simple yet powerful connection between consumers and local businesses."
