ADVERTSING AT NO COST

They are all are welcome to advertise in the Heidelberg Business Directory at NO COST.

SEVEN REASONS WHY YOU OUGHT TO ADVERTISE
IN THE HEIDELBERG BUSINESS DIRECTORY

Online advertising is fast becoming a major marketing tool, providing fast, effective, targeted and measurable results, offering real value for money and flexibility.

1. Your target audience is Heidelberg.
Heidelberg Business Directory only accepts adverts from businesses which are located or operate in Heidelberg. In the event of the absence of a certain type of business in Heidelberg, we may, at our own discretion, accept an advert from a non-Heidelberg business, provided that the advertiser services the Heidelberg community.
This stipulation implies that all businesses in this Directory are within reach of Heidelberg residents. Furthermore, it promotes local consumer support.

2. Your customers are online.

More than ever, consumers use the Internet to research and select products to purchase. Your advertising will prompt them to consider your products and services.

3. Your competitors are online.
Not only are your direct competitors advertising online, but also there are many companies that now use the Internet to target your customers. How to fight back? Make sure your customers see your advertising to remind them why they like your products best.

4. Cost effective.
With online advertising, you can reach a large audience 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, quickly and at lower cost than many other media. From only R100 per month, you can have a presence in the Heidelberg Business Directory.

5. Extend your trading hours.
Online advertising can extend your trading hours to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by offering your clients information about your business, services and products any time, day or night. Furthermore, your clients will be able to communicate with you via email, without waiting to phone you the next morning.

6. Expand your geographical boundaries
With the Internet, there are no geographical boundaries, so you reach a larger audience. Online advertising allows local businesses to penetrate new markets in other geographical areas and it is a very effective means of reaching new customers.

7. Enhance your business image
Online advertising shows your potential customers that you are a legitimate operation that takes its business seriously. Even if they have never heard of you, an address on the Internet stands out in other literature as testimony of your commitment to your business, your product or service, and your reputation; and shows that you care enough to reach all markets and keep your customers informed.
