Your community can take advantage of revenue generating options to create new channels of income directly from your website. Your site can be configured to offer any combinaton of the following:
- Business Directory
As a service to area businesses, your site can offer a business directory listing. This is an excellent way for city economic development coordinators to help stimulate local economies and encourage citizens to patronize area interests. For businesses with exisiting websites, a link the site can be included in their listing.
This is the most obvious way to create new revenue streams. It also gives local businesses an opportunity to promote their brand to a targeted audience. Banner and block ads are etremely effective at getting a businesses name in front of loyal citizens looking to support their community.
While Contendia does not sell the advertising space directly, we do help manage advertising accounts. We can provide graphic design, ad placement, and even billing services. All you have to do is sell the ads. It's that easy!
- Landing Pages
Apart from a single listing in the business directory, you also can offer 'landing pages' link from the directory listing that provides in-depth information about each business. This is especially suited to small and medium sized businesses that do need or want a separate dedicated website. Landing pages can contain any amount of information that a business might like to publish including FAQs, hours of operation, payment options, contact information, pictures, directional maps, etc...
- Forms Submission
Landing pages can offer extra information about a business but forms gather information about potential customers. Businesses can take advantage of a form on their landing page to allow customers to contact them with their questions. Each form can be customized to the businesses liking and configured to automatically forward any submissions to their personal email. Forms are a valuable resource for generating customer leads for businesses like realtors, florists, banks, attorneys, pharmacists, restaurants/caterers and more.
