“LocalPAGES.com is a great place to promote and network your business in the community!”
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 18, 2011
Small businesses face lingering doubts over an uncertain economic future, legislative setbacks, and lackluster lending. Many independent entrepreneurs feel frustrated and unappreciated as they attempt to weather the financial storm. They dream of expansion, yet their budgets don’t leave much room for advertising expenses. Thankfully, there’s a way for these hard working folks to gain some free exposure; LocalPAGES.com honors these types of companies through a special Business of the Week contest designed exclusively for local stores.
Consumers are encouraged to nominate their favorite neighborhood spots via the site’s Business of the Week consideration form. Alternatively, business owners may submit their own information for review. Winners are chosen based on testimonials and overall contribution to the surrounding community. Entrants with an established web presence get preferential treatment as a way of highlighting the benefits of internet marketing. Applicants without websites or social media accounts must demonstrate a compelling commitment to excellence in other areas.
Winners get a custom, professional blog post highlighting their information and accomplishments. The article generates an online buzz, which usually translates into increased sales. As an added bonus, those with websites earn the right to display an eye catching badge for SEO purposes. These types of links help businesses appear at the top of organic search listings on Google, Yahoo, and Bing. The LocalPAGES team also spreads the good word through social media channels to reach even more potential customers. Business of the Week honoree Troy Young of Primal Aspects in Arlington, Texas raves, “LocalPAGES.com is a great place to promote and network your business in the community!”
