When your customers are looking for things and businesses locally they use different sites and tools to find different information. They're looking for details that distinguish your business from the next based on more than just where it's located (though that matters, too). And since each site, map or app offers its own context, your business needs to be everywhere.
To help customers find your business on whatever device and service they might be looking, we're excited to announce eight new publishers in the PowerListings Network: Citymaps, Opendi, YellowPagesGoesGreen, Citybot, ABLocal, Pointcom, VoteForTheBest, 2findlocal!
Citymaps is the world's first social map. Described as the "Pinterest for Places," Citymaps is the fastest and easiest way to make maps of your favorite places, see your friends' maps, and check out personal maps by celebs and publishers. Discover the best places around you, wherever you are. The award-winning logo map covers 15mm places in America — including real-time Instagram photos, menus, tips, navigation, and directions.
We're excited to partner with Citymaps, another NYC startup right up the road from our office.
Opendi is a local directory that contains over 6 million local businesses across the globe. Along with their business pages, there are thousands of reviews to help searchers find exactly what they are looking for.
YellowPagesGoesGreen provides an environmentally friendly search engine while supporting the green movement and promoting awareness by helping consumers opt-out of the delivery of the printed yellow pages. As the original opt-out registry, their "going green" mission continues as they provide a simple and effective online alternative to print.
Citybot is an app that makes travel planning easy for people who don't just want to find one place but want a full itinerary including the best attractions, restaurants, bars, and other must-sees in a new city.
ABLocal is a curated local business directory, which helps people find great local businesses they've never tried before. Their search algorithm favors businesses who have taken the time to curate their listings. They believe business owners who want to talk about their business, and what makes it unique, are more likely to run a cool, local shop.
Pointcom has been offering great services to the world wide web since the 1990′s and as we venture further into the 21st century they have looked for new ways to expand on what this site has provided in the past and bring great websites to the forefront. Each site they review is given a stamp of approval that they have quality content that would be essential for any visitor to check out.
VotefortheBest is a straight-forward business directory that ranks businesses in every town in the country based on a simple yet powerful voting system. VotefortheBest is quickly becoming the go-to destination to find out what businesses are popular in any city.
2findlocal is a local search directory that helps consumers make big finds from small businesses. Made in New York, 2findlocal connects consumers to businesses in their towns selling the products and services they need. Consumers can even see what searches are trending in their town, providing them with another way to find local businesses.
In addition to these eight sites, maps and apps, we're adding new ones all the time to help your customers find you. You can learn more about each one in our PowerListings Network here.
