Frederick, CO (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Mentioning the words “Computer Bulletin Board” immediately invokes retro images of people engaged in lively conversations in “Chat Rooms”. But this website, http://www.bestcorkboard.com, is a virtual showcase where small businesses can display business cards and help visitors find a plumber, electrician or dozens of other types of service providers. The site is an online version of traditional bulletin boards found at local grocery stores, barbershops, dry-cleaners and many other kinds of retail businesses.
The site has great search flexibility, allowing users to find businesses by state or category of service. Searches can also be done on combinations of service providers within a state or for listings that have contents matching a free-form text search. Clicking on a business card automatically takes visitors to a dedicated page of information about the business, including text and pictures. Here is an example of one of the listings: http://bestcorkboard.com/index.php?action=listingview&listingID=3
“Bestcorkboard.com gives small businesses a professional and very affordable venue to showcase their business on the internet, said Don Sumner, Business Development manager. “The site lists only cards from businesses and service suppliers in order to maintain a strict focus on businesses. There are no listings like those found on the many “classified” sites around the web.” Sumner also noted that, unlike other classified listing sites, visitors are not confronted with hundreds of text-only headlines. ”We focus on the graphical presentation of the business card to give advertisers the opportunity to convey their most basic branding message, often part of the business card.”It is extremely easy to set up a new listing on the website. Advertisers first establish an account by creating a Login name and password. They then log into the site, create the listing information and upload an image of their business card. The completed listing is a dedicated page of information about the business, including text, up to three pictures and the business card. Easy-to-follow instructions on how to prepare the business card file are provided.
Listings are free for the first 30 days, and can be re-activated for free every 30 days for as long as the business wants to remain listed. If advertisers want longer listings, they can purchase a six-month listing for $1.95 or a one-year listing for $2.95. This structure allows advertisers to see their listings first, and be fully satisfied with it, before committing to longer-term listings. The longer-term listings are also eligible for the “Featured Listings“category, which is periodically displayed in a scroll bar at the bottom of many of the pages on the site.
