The St Albans District Business Directory is a new online venture by the St Albans Chamber of Commerce, St Albans Enterprise Agency, St Albans Centre for the voluntary Services and St Albans City & District Council, supported with funding from the Local Strategic Partnership and provided by The Disc Directory.
It aims to include every business - of whatever sort - in the district, and for free as a basic entry. Much more than a business directory, it also uses technology which allows for feedback so that users can see which businesses are recommended. And Further:
- It can feed that positive feedback into your own social media accounts i.e. Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn
- It has an RSS feed so that you can include your recommendations on your own website
- It will give you impartial recommendations through a third party website
So without any work you can get your testimonials out where your potential clients can see them.
www.thediscdirectory.co.uk has more than 2million pages indexed by Google and therefore search engine optimisation will be improved both by being on the directory and by the social media links.
It is hoped that this venture will involve more local businesses with each other, the Chamber and the community, whilst helping them to promote their business successfully.
To hear more about the directory, come along to the St Albans Chamber Business Breakfast, being held on Wednesday 30th June at the Noke Thistle Hotel, St Albans. More information and bookings can be made via www.stalbans-chamber.co.uk
