...rather than just relying on the traditional methods of business building, such as word of mouth and referrals I will be testing the LocalHood.ca directory to help me develop a local web presence.
Halifax, Nova Scotia (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
Canadian web presence directory, LocalHood.ca looks to add Mortgage Brokers who are based in the Maritimes to its beta directory. In a trial run, the directory has added a few independent mortgage specialists from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
The recent additions include a Cape Breton mortgage broker located in Sydney, Nova Scotia and a Halifax Mortgage Broker also from the same Province. Initially, the new advertising additions will help the directory establish the mortgage categories allowing it to add other data sets related to mortgage services that will be available throughout Canada.
The initial group of maritime based mortgage brokers will also provide the directory with a few case studies that will be developed and used to attract future financial specialists once the site goes live later in 2012. LocalHood.ca is proving to be effective in helping local businesses develop their web presence. The directory has a large number of page one rankings in Google for a wide variety of localized keywords and phrases that suggest commercial intent on behalf of the searcher.
On March 28, 2012 the directory announce that it would be adding a few advertisers from the financial services vertical based in the Maritimes. At that time the first advertiser to join the directory was a Sydney Life Insurance broker named Earl O'Neil who is a financial services veteran. O'Neil is hoping to attract attention from Cape Breton residents and business owners who may be searching online to find local financial advisors for life insurance and other financial products.
At the time O'Neil said, "...rather than just relying on the traditional methods of business building, such as word of mouth and referrals I will be testing the LocalHood.ca directory to help me develop a local web presence." In addition to a full web page on LocalHood.ca that is dedicated to O'Neil's business location, he has also started to publish articles on the directory which is a key tactic for increasing online discoverability.
A third mortgage specialist to join the site is a Charlottown mortgage broker that is located in Prince Edward Island. All three local mortgage brokers are the first to get the ball rolling for LocalHood.ca in the Maritimes but more will be added on a selective basis over the next few months to begin fleshing out listings for the directory in Eastern Canada.
LocalHood.ca is an emerging, local web presence business directory that has recently launched as a live beta site. LocalHood.ca presently hosts location based information for a variety of Canadian businesses in addition to local event listings and classified ads.
