BustinLooseMedia.com now has four sites that are dedicated to bringing the businesses that service our section of the Brazos Valley, to the local residents, for a more personal form of advertising.
These sites are still under development, and are directed to just one, until the theme revisions have been made, but don’t worry, they will be up and running soon!
These four sites are; BurlesonCountyBusiness.com (http://burlesoncountybusiness NULL.com/), BrazosCountyBusiness.com (http://brazoscountybusiness NULL.com/), WashingtonCountyBusiness.com (http://washingtoncountybusiness NULL.com/), and a broader site, BrazosValleyBusiness.com (http://brazosvalleybusiness NULL.com/). All four domains are practically identical, and many may wonder what the reasoning is for having four separate domains, why not have one main domain and three subdomains? This is simple, to keep it local, yet provide broader content for the search engines, thus gaining more exposure for the advertisers!
The rural residents in each county are concerned about the businesses that will actually service their area, believe me, here in Burleson County, where I live, it is hard to get businesses from Brazos or Washington Counties to come to your home to do any work!
My purpose in this is two-fold, first, to help others in these areas, find businesses that are interested in getting their business, and second, to have articles that are more detailed than a newspaper ad, so the prospective customer can learn more about them. Customers can report businesses that, for the good of all, have done things right, or wrong, with a simple comment. Consumers, and business owners alike, may register, and post comments, and hopefully, contribute to the content by posting their own articles. I have even set up discussion boards should the community get too active for just comments.
If you look at the sites as they are now, you will see sample ads all over the place, as these sites are still in developement, most of these are simply placeholders, the prices are not correct, at the time they were made, the whole concept, was but a test, so, if you are worried about the prices, many of them will be much less, others will not be.
Yes, we will also allow the bigger, regional or national advertisers, such as restaurant chains etc to purchase ads and even have a representitive write articles or comments for them, but the primary focus is on the consumer, to provide them as much information as possible, and to give them a place to voice their opinions, and just chat with their neighbors should they wish to. I hope that these sites will allow both the businesses and the consumers to get to know each other better, thus building relationships that will help both in the long run. Please feel free to post a comment and tell me what you think about my idea, offer suggestions, and even contact me if you wish to help out or advertise, I need all the help I can get!
