Seattle, WA – July 25, 2012 – Sabira Arefin, founder and CEO of LocalBlox, has announced the launch of new profile pages for more than 23 million business in over 60,000 neighborhoods throughout the nation. The page encompasses a number of features to showcase each business on local social mobile media online and in the nearby neighborhoods.
“Neighbors don’t need to go to five different pages like Yelp, Citysearch, Superpages, White Pages and Yellow Pages,” said Arefin. They can see what’s in the universe for that business, and reviews from their local neighbors – reviews from people in their community they can trust. The pages function much like “Kayak” for small neighborhood businesses.”
LocalBlox provides a variety of high-tech tools for small businesses and an extensive array of services. The firm is a founder-run startup and Arefin is cognizant of the challenges small businesses encounter. She understands the need to make every dollar count and offers numerous free services to assist individuals in building their own businesses.
With the new profile pages, members don’t have to spend a fortune to create a separate mobile-friendly site. Each member profile page is optimized for exposure on a wide variety of mobile devices. Business owners can claim their company listing and update it anytime they like, free of charge. Members also receive a free neighborhood ad LocalBlox.com to help build long-term relationships with local consumers.
Any member can submit reviews on the profile page and businesses can request reviews from existing consumers. Companies that receive three reviews qualify for a bronze local business award. Those who obtain five reviews are eligible for a silver award and seven or more reviews earn businesses a gold award. The commendations are featured prominently on the profile page for online visibility that translates into consumer trust and increased sales.
LocalBlox provides the means for businesses to submit their listing to the top directories, social media and bookmarking sites for increased exposure, traffic and sales. Advertising is a major expenditure and many small businesses don’t have extensive marketing budgets. The services at LocalBlox assist small business across the nation save time and money, while building strong local communities.
Members also have access to B2B networking opportunities and SoLoMo mobile marketing solutions utilizing GPS technology. Emails and text messages can be sent to established clients and potential customers about special deals, sales and events. Business owners can also offer electronic coupons for redemption when consumers visit a specific store in person.
The launch of the new business profile pages is just one of the ways LocalBlox serves its more than 23 million business business neighbors to help them increase their visibility to local consumers. The firm is dedicated to building strong neighborhood ties between companies and consumers for long-lasting relationships and communities that are strong enough financially to weather the fluctuations of any economy.
