Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) July 28, 2010
Dahlia Web Designs LLC enhances the services provided by Recommended Referrals, a directory focused on small businesses that offer children's products and services and informational resources.
The Recommended Referrals directory was built to support both parents and small businesses. “We want to give small businesses the opportunity to enhance their internet visibility and give parents additional resources to help them with children's products and services,” states Dahlia Benaroya, President, Dahlia Web Designs LLC, the parent company of Recommended Referrals.
At Recommended Referrals, businesses recommend their companies by submitting their company URL to the site, for free. Businesses can also be recommended by their customers. "Although we review each submitted website, viewers must assess for themselves whether the products and services are appropriate for their children," states Dahlia.
The website includes three categories: online stores for children's products, services for children, and informational resources. "Our members are located in the US as well as globally."
Online stores include categories activities & gear such as strollers, books, clothing & accessories, educational toys, food & nutrition, furniture & décor, health, and musical. Many products such as the clothes are handmade. Children love to bond with beautiful themes that are hand painted on kids furniture. The products give children much joy.
Services include amber alert support, camp and party activities, training, medical and dental referrals, website design and illustration services.
Resources include directories of information, product reviews and additional information to help parents make safe choices.
The website showcases member businesses that are helping worthy causes. "We want to highlight how businesses are making a difference in supporting causes." Several of the members donate portions of their proceeds to charity and are tirelessly developing systems and connections to bring people together to help causes such as children’s hospices and reading programs.
"We have enhanced our services to our members," states Dahlia. Under the free listing, upon approval, information listed includes the business name, a link to the business website, a short description of products or services offered to children by the business, and a link to their social network.
Additional services to members who upgrade their membership include longer business descriptions, taglines, Company logos, additional contact information, links to multiple sites, blogs, social networks, listings on multiple category pages, posting of company-offered discounts, entry on 'Special Causes' page, if applicable, company news announcements, entries on the Recommended Referrals blog, back-links to websites, spotlights on our eNewsletters, posting of member interviews, SEO optimization, logo banners, full feature pages dedicated to their business, and customized entries.
