SanGabe.biz (http://www.sangabe.biz) is an online resource center and promotional tool published by the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group that allows local business owners to access vital business information and connect with local customers. The website enables business owners to get their message and marketing out to an online audience easily and effectively target local customers.
SanGabe.biz offers a complete set of on-line resources for small businesses which includes accounting & legal resources, sales and marketing tools and video based "How to" guides for businesses on a variety of topics.
The site also makes it easy for business owners to put their content online with simple tools that anyone can use regardless of Internet development experience. Business owners can use SanGabe.biz to publicize coupons and promotions, put up photos, general business info, job listings, and contact information. Users of the site can also utilize blogs to keep in touch with their customers and solicit feedback directly from customers through their SanGabe.biz listing. The site also allows business owners to form networks with one another and share customer resources.
"After visiting with many businesses in the San Gabriel Valley, it became clear that there was a need for more affordable and less technical solutions to getting a business on-line. We've been building effective print ads for over a 100 years. This is just an extension of the local marketing services we're already providing," says Dan Vigil, Interactive Sales Manager for The San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group.
After a year of development, Sangabe.Biz now provides an alternative method of local business marketing allowing merchants to easily and inexpensively harness the power of the Internet. The site incorporates technology from ShowMeLocal.com, a New York-based company that provides innovative web solutions for marketers and media publishers operating in the local markets.
SanGabe.biz is free for business owners to use during its beta phase. There are plans to introduce subscription services in the future while providing different levels of service for clients, along with a free basic membership package. The company has also released a suite of custom web site design and hosting packages for local businesses.
