Local search has become a very important aspect of both industrial marketing and sourcing
Charlotte, N.C. (Vocus) December 7, 2010
Industrial search engine Industrial Web Search recently acquired the local search engine SourceLocal.com in order to expand its offerings to industrial sellers and buyers in 2011.
“Local search has become a very important aspect of both industrial marketing and sourcing,” notes Industrial Web Search President and founder Joe DeMicco. “Sellers are looking for as much visibility as possible, including a local audience. At the same time, some sourcing professionals require products and services from suppliers closer to their operations. While continuing to offer our seller members global reach through IndustrialWebSearch.com, the new SourceLocal.com site offers them additional opportunities by focusing exclusively on local search marketing.”
SourceLocal.com will undergo redevelopment into 2011 to enhance its services and incorporate Industrial Web Search listing results. For a limited time, all new seller members who sign up for Industrial Web Search will be included in SourceLocal.com for one year upon its launch at no additional cost. After the promotional period, only select membership levels will be eligible for the bonus service. Interested industrial sellers can call (800) 399-9859 or visit http://www.industrialwebsearch.com for more information.
SourceLocal.com is a local search engine designed to serve consumers and businesses looking for specified products and services within their area.
