Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Ascend Integrated Media is proud to announce the launch of the comprehensive online buyer’s guide for the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO).
Designed specifically for school business officials, the ASBO Buyer’s Guide is a digital buying resource that allows users to search more than 225 categories and find the relevant products and services they need — without the unrelated clutter of a general Internet search engine. Users can search the vendors and bookmark companies that are of interest to them, making the companies easier to locate on subsequent buyer’s guide visits.
The selling portion of the ASBO Buyer’s Guide is designed to make it easy for vendors to provide as much detail about their companies as they would like. Vendors and corporate members have the option of enhancing their listings and making their companies more visible with such features as videos, company logos, corporate member identification, and a selection of leaderboard, banner and tower advertising opportunities.
“There are countless other buyer’s guide options in the market,” said Cam Bishop, Ascend CEO. “Our digital guides are designed from the ground up to make it easy for association members to find what they are looking for and efficient for vendors to achieve affordable year-round visibility for their products and services.”
“We have been very pleased with the initial outcomes of our relationship with Ascend and the additional opportunities that our buyer’s guide offers,” said ASBO’s Assistant Executive Director Siobhan McMahon. “We look forward to reaping even more benefits for our members as they use this great resource.”
