The Power of 8?
Numbers don’t lie!
People who are numerology buffs believe in the symbolism of numbers. Every number means something and some numbers are more potent than others, and the origins of numerology can be traced back to Egypt 10,000 years ago.
Today, the Chinese are serious believers and they place a lot of value on the number 8. It was not coincidental that the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Beijing began on 8/8/08 at 8 seconds and 8 minutes past 8 pm local time. According to Wikipedia, a telephone number with all digits being eights was sold for $270,723 in Chengdu, China.
The Ford Flathead V8 Engine
The first “V-8 engine” (8 letters), the Ford Flathead, was one of the company’s most important developments and an incredible success. Did the fact that it had 8 cylinders have any special meaning or was it just a practical design? I don’t know, but maybe some Ford buff can enlighten us.
“Flathead” has 8 letters
Does that mean anything special to the companies that have listed their businesses in the Flathead Guide? I have no earthly idea, but I would imagine that they chose the Flathead Guide because it offers a way to capitalize on an ever-increasing marketing channel that gets impressive results. Check out a few of our testimonials here.
So what’s with all the numbers?
I am not a numerologist, and my mama told me it was unlucky to be superstitious (even though my birthday is on Halloween); I just happen to have a penchant for trivia and interesting facts.
One of the most interesting facts today is how mobile marketing is changing our world. The smartphone phenomenon means that 25% to 40% of the traffic to your website today is from mobile users. And, next year mobile devices (phones & tablets) are expected to eclipse desktop and laptop computers as the #1 Internet access devices. Add to this the fact that search engines now show different search results to mobile users and the game suddenly has new rules.
This is where the Flathead Guide can help you attract more ready-to-buy customers. Your listing in the Flathead Valley Business Directory provides a mobile-friendly, search engine optimized “mini website’ promoting your products and services. Visitors need only “Tap to Call” your business or visit your website. And…the link from the Flathead Guide to your primary website offers valuable juice to help you rank higher in search results.
The cost to enjoy all the benefits of a Flathead Guide listing is only half of $8 (sorry, I couldn’t resist). For only $4 per month, the Flathead Guide works for you 24 x 7 x 365 (did you notice that is 8 characters?).
Seriously, the most important number on this page is the $4 per month cost to have your business listed in the official Flathead Valley Business Directory. There is not a better marketing value anywhere. The numbers do not lie, $4 to attract new customers is an unbelievable bargain! Sign up today!
