Happy New Year (of the Goat) 2015!
Will 2015 be the year for your business?
According to Chinese Zodiac calendar, 2015 is the year of the goat (or sheep). This is an important year according to zodiac theory, and for the Flathead Valley. It should be a very good year for local businesses if they are positioned well to capitalize on the increase tourism predicted for our area.
They’ll be coming to see the GNP goats
2014 was a record year for Glacier National Park and this year should be even better due to lower gas prices and some other mind-numbing economic indicators. The customers will be coming, but will they be able to find your business? THAT is the most important question!
And they’ll be bringing their ‘kids’
Cars, trucks, campers and buses filled with families wanting to visit Glacier Park (and see the goats) and they will be searching for places to stay, eat, shop and buy every conceivable product and service offered in the Flathead.
How will they find your business?
They will do the same thing before they leave home as they will do once they arrive; they will search for everything they need on their Tablet PCs and smartphones. If you are not positioned well in ‘Search’, they may not find your business.
The Flathead Guide can help you get ‘found’
Not only will your listing in the official Flathead Valley Business Directory serve as a source for ready-to-buy customers, but that listing can actually help boost your website in search results!
Over the course of the past few years I have published numerous posts on how the Flathead Guide can help your business attract new customers so I will not go over all the details here. However, below are some related posts that help to explain how all this magic works:
- Why do you need the Flathead Business Directory?

To get prepared for 2015, add your business to the Flathead Guide. It costs a fraction of what you would pay for a print ad in any local magazine or newspaper yet it will work for you 24x7x365.
