Connect WM which stands for ”Connect West Midlands” is a new localised online directory for the entire West Midlands region is encouraging local businesses to use their services in order to promote themselves to a localised audience which as a direct result assists in reducing any online dilution for those who can only supply products and services locally.
The Connect WM site covers Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, West Midlands and Worcestershire.The people behind Connect WM are Trevor Tierney and Fraser Cox both of whom are Black Country based entrepreneurs who felt that the time was right to help businesses start to gain confidence in advertising again.
Trevor said unfortunately the first thing to go for a lot of businesses in times of trouble and decline is their marketing and advertising and because their past experience of online advertising was national as opposed to a more local solution any results they had may have been diluted and not suitable because of where any enquiries came from
Fact is online advertising is growing at an exceptional rate and is far outstripping the more traditional advertising methods. Trevor goes on to say â€œlocal businesses really need to start to promote themselves so as not to be caught out and left behind.
Connect WM provides many cost effective solutions and services which assist local based businesses to get themselves known such as Directory listings – Events can be posted – Classified ads can be utilised to promote services or use as a recruitment tool – Articles can be posted in order to instil confidence as well as assist with information and knowledge – Promotional vouchers can be generated which allows the user to print off and hand in.
Fraser says we believe that Connect WM offers that something different, especially with our printable promotional vouchers which can be created easily and simply, gone could be the days where businesses have to get 20-30,000 leaflets printed and distributed. By cost effective we really mean â€˜cost effective – as a new site we are offering introductory discounts, some of our services are free but like anything you get what you pay for.
Connect WM seem to have this well thought out as Mr Tierney say’s €œwe’re looking at ways to assist local people in these times of the need for secondary incomes by providing them with a Connect WM business opportunity for which more details can be obtained by visiting the classified ads section of www.connectwm.com.
