Things have changed, have you?
If the “Flathead Guide” (Flathead Valley Business Directory) was published twenty years ago, it would have looked something like this; a pocket edition small enough to be carried in a suit pocket or purse, a briefcase or conveniently stored in your vehicle’s glove compartment.
The idea would have been to have our local business directory in a package that would permit you to carry it around town and used as a handy reference.
Today that concept remains the same, but the packaging is entirely different. Ubiquitous access to the Internet and the advent of mobile devices like smartphones and tablet PCs means that we now access this global information portal from our cell phone.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Flathead?
Millions of people visit the Flathead every year; they arrive by plane, trains, RVs. family cars and yes, some even hitchhike. The one thing that almost all visitors now carry with them is their smartphones; few of them are dragging their laptops along. Add to this the 90,000+ Flathead Valley residents who shop here and buy services, and local businesses must adapt to how these customers make buying decisions every day.
The SMART Smartphone Directory
People “search online” when they need to solve a problem or are ready to buy something – and they do it on their smartphones. This is just one of the many reasons why the Flathead Guide is so valuable to businesses. We target searches performed from mobile devices and present a mobile-friendly listing of your business that includes a slideshow of your products or services, an unlimited description, a Google map, links to all your social sites and much, much more.
Your listing in the Flathead Guide is actually a ‘mini website’ that channels phone calls and email messages directly to your business. Additionally, the link in your listing can help your main website rank higher in search results.
