Premum Ads to Boost your FoundLocally visibility
Premium Ads are smart!
Since 1999 (17 years and counting!), we have provided free listings for LOCAL BUSINESSES, on the premise that EVERY BUSINESS DESERVES TO BE ONLINE. And every business should be able to afford it! So, we built the Free Listings with
free categories (unlike those "yellow guys"), free logo, free website link, free news announcements, free coupons, sales, or flyers, free jobs postings, and free events promotion...
Every business is listed on its own merits & information, and listed based on the USER'S search criteria, with no "monkeying around". The searches & options are context-sensitive, and results displayed are filtered using user-specified search criteria. Giving users the business(es) they are looking for, and also giving businesses the customers they WANT!
Now that we have added the graphical interface (looks a bit like Pinterest), with photos linking to website articles & stories, and now the business logos (or photos) link to business listings and information, we've allowed progressive businesses to STAND OUT over those that don't have web links (Really? Still?) or haven't uploaded a photo or logo (still showing the default blue "Click Here" image??).
But how do you step up from there? PREMIUM ADS!
Premium Ads have benefits!
Three key benefits of FoundLocally's Premium Ads:
- 1. It's First, and there is only ONE
REGARDLESS of search parameters, search results, or business listings in editorial pages (in the Pinterest layout)... when there are business listing results, YOU ARE FIRST in the the city-segment you have successfully bid on.
- 2. It's in-Content advertising
Its "above the fold" and RIGHT IN THE CONTENT or at the start f Search Results! It's not above the navigation, or to the right of, or below the content.
- 3. Ads can be changed while running
Mix creative over the month... CHANGE photos/images, adjust the headline, change the offer, even change he links. If you have Premium Ads in different segments or different cities, you can MIX AND MATCH any way you want!
From as little as $50 a month, this advertising is SUPREMELY AFFORDABLE!
