Houston, Texas (PressExposure) January 01, 2007 -- J&H Web Technologies is proud to launch cityslick.net, the first website of its kind to promote local businesses. While large companies have the advantage of spending large sums of money to promote themselves on the internet and in more traditional media outlets, small businesses oftentimes do not have that luxury. Cityslick.net bridges that gap by giving small businesses the ability to start an internet presence if they do not already have one or to expand their presence by promoting to those who wish to find good deals in their area.
Cityslick.net allows businesses to display contact information, banners, product listings, product images, customizable coupons, track consumer reviews, provide downloadable documents, accept meeting appointments online, and much more. Potential customers can search by product and service categories in their city and zip code. This gives businesses exposure to customers that they would otherwise never have access to.
"The process of finding the best deals in a city is often a cumbersome one," says Jim Glenn, Co-President of Cityslick. "Large, nationwide players have a distinct advantage in the process because they can afford mass media promotion and have extensive online websites that can target their audience. Many small businesses get left behind because they do not have the resources or the technological sophistication to have their own website. Cityslick can help them catch up."
Cityslick gives companies all the benefits of a website without all the hassle. A full-fledged website requires a webmaster, servers, programming experience, and other expenses that can cost thousands of dollars. For a fraction of the cost, Cityslick gives businesses the flexibility to alter their listings and promote themselves with the click of a button.
"We really started this website to help out businesses and consumers find each other in their respective local areas area," says Henal Patel, Co-President of Cityslick. "I watched my parents struggle to promote their small businesses, so I can definitely empathize with the pains of wanting to promote something you have nurtured from its infancy. We do all the hard work for you. We have worked hard to make sure that not only is a listing on Cityslick visible to the consumers, but we use the optimization techniques to so that you will be visible on search engines such as Google or Yahoo. We are extremely search engine optimized, so a listing with Cityslick.net has several distinct advantages for businesses. And the best part, Cityslick is completely free to consumers. Anybody can search for local money saving opportunities for free! Businesses get exposure, consumers get good deals. It's win-win."
