It has been a great few years! However to promote and maximise the potential for the Red Lodge Business Directory new website, we needed to make changes.
I am delighted to make the following announcements:-
First off, and most importantly to help with the future of the Directory, I have now teamed up with the talented and amazing Soo Smart of Double S Design. I first met Soo last year as I needed to join forces with someone who would be able to help with, maintain and develop the back end of the Directory. I’d often seen Soo being recommended online and since our very first meeting, I knew she’d be instrumental in taking the Directory forward to the next level.
The second announcement is that the Directory has a new home. We’ve left behind the old HTML platform and have rid ourselves of those horrible tables. Say goodbye to the past and hello to the future of the Directory, with a new website built with WordPress. It was absolutely necessary to take the Directory to the next level so that we could engage the listings better visually and in a much clearer and professional way. The new platform enables us to really push the benefits of the Directory to its current and future users and help them discover the right business or service that they seek!
Those of you that were originally listed on the Directory before this announcement will have been migrated to the new platform – have a look and see if you can find yourself and if there is anything you want updated, let me know.
Oh wait – we’ve more! To optimize current and future listings, we’ve introduced three brand new levels. The “basic” listing gives you a professional layout with a great feel and look which doesn’t have an HTML table anywhere. The “Advanced” listing gives you top ranking in your category, helping you to be seen and generate more leads over other basic Listings.
Then there is the “Premier” listing – this gives you advertising in your overall category, and you’ll be able to advertise your business on the front of the Directory, not to mention the ability to have a portfolio of pictures to really show off your business or service.
If you wish to upgrade your listing, go for it – we’re waiting to hear from you right now!
I will always say this – thank you to all the businesses that have made the Directory what it is, and thank you to those who use it and help spread the word.
