Shilo Storey with Re/Max Central – Shilo Storey Real Estate, is an advertising pioneer blazing a trail through Airdrie with a new and exciting online marketing tool called, “Parkbench”! She has extended an open invitation to the business community to join her in a truly unique and revolutionary marketing campaign.
Parkbench takes only the best of the other conventional networking and advertising mediums and combines it into a powerful database, custom built for local businesses to take advantage of. It links businesses, customer reviews, upcoming events, deals, groups, websites, other social media accounts, blogs and so much more into a neighbourhood based, information hub. Real time, local demographics are now available to businesses who wish to market their companies more effectively.
Parkbench is able to find who and where your customers are and can tell you what it is they’re looking for. Not only that but when you wish to say something, you now have a captive audience ready and willing to listen. Compare and analyze response to different marketing techniques. Get feedback about your services. Collaborate and partner with other complimentary industries. It’s a one stop shop for businesses trying to get their message out there to just the right people.
What’s the catch you say? How much? It must be hard to do... No catch. It’s Free. All you have to do is go to www.parkbench.com and create an account. You either claim your business if it’s in there already or simply start a new business profile if it’s not. (Answer some questions and upload your logo.) Oh! Did I mention it was FREE!!!!
The only downside with Parkbench is also its greatest advantage, and that is that it’s LOCAL. So yes this does not mean you’re going to get a million hits like on YouTube, but if you’re a local business do you really care if your page is viewed by the thousands in India? This will be exclusive to local businesses and local residents only… aka your ideal clientele.
Like with anything in life you will get out of it what you put in, so Shilo is encouraging everyone to check it out as soon as possible and stake your piece of the advertising pie. Even if you don’t wish to join just yet you can still show your support for your fellow entrepreneurs by writing reviews or providing referrals. Want to spark interest in your own business profile? Try an incentive or reward program for customers and colleagues. If nothing else at least take a few moments to have a look around at the hottest new trend in business networking.
