I'm sure you will agree that there are loads of online business directories out there, so why do we say that ours is any different? Because not all business directories are created equal! Here are some of the reasons our directory will be the directory of choice in the years to come:
Unlike the vast majority of online business directories, every single one of our listed business profiles is checked and edited by a human editor. We provide a writing service as well because many business owners are not seasoned copyrighters. We make sure that each and every business listing is well written and presented before going live.
The web is littered with FREE listing directories. As a rule of thumb, many of these free directories are information and data gathering sites, and have not been set-up to really promote any business listed. If you spend a little time on many of them, you will notice that a large number of the listings are completely inaccurate and many are even totally out of date - a nightmare for directory site visitors, who invariably give up after a minute or two. But because all of our listed businesses are members that pay a sponsorship fee to support the funding requirements of various campaigns and projects run by our association, it is in their best interest to maintain all their details in a high quality format and up-to-date.
If you donated funds or given us in-kind contributions since January 2016 in support of any of our campaigns, and have a business servicing the Algarve and Alentejo, we invite you to read more how you could get your FREE listing, click here.
Despite being approached by various companies to do banner and sidebar advertising, we do not have any external advertising in any of our sites, and we will not be doing it in this one neither. Our site visitors have a clean interface with zero distractions. No external advertising, scripts, popups or flash designs will be allowed on our directory websites.
One of our objectives is to provide a hub of relevant information for buyers and sellers, for visitors and tourists, for investors and just plain individuals - all supported by a Human Rights & Citizen Driven Advice Bureau and a Small Business Advice Bureau. In fact our organisation is much more than just a body running a business directory. We are a support organisation covering multiple fields and addressing multiple scenarios.
One of our defining insights is the fact that people want to deal with people not with big inpersonal corporations. Our focus is on the micro; small and medium size business sectors located in the Algarve and Alentejo with a specific focus on exporting our tourism driven industries. We want to provide a platform for the mom and pop type businesses; the owner-managed business venture; the artisans and the artists, etc. to promote their businesses and their ventures within a personal interactive format. People buy from people is the moto.
Now, that you've read about our exciting business directory launch, if you have a local business in the Algarve or in the Alentejo, shouldn't your business be listed in our business directory?
