POPSpages.com, Created to Help Small Business Compete with the Big Guys, Encourages Businesses to Join Early Before Slots Are Taken
Cincinnati, OH, November 19, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Whether it be a small business or someone just interested in selling a product, Popspages.com is a new online marketing tool for entrepreneurs, organizations, individuals and small businesses to advertise and promote their products and services online for free. No website is necessary. A basic listing will create advertising pages that get any business noticed and to the top of the search engines for free. Similar in concept, but not style, to Craig's List, businesses and individuals can post their information for free. The site is easily searchable by city and industry.

Popspages.com allows anyone to promote their business, products, or items, create classifieds, create printable coupons, display a photo or logo, link to their website, map to their location, insert expert articles and many other features not typically offered free in an online directory.

"Popspages.com was created specifically with the small business owner in mind. With lots of free services at the basic listing, anyone with a business card, including Joe the Plumber, should have their business listed in Popspages, or any other free directory they find online," states Robynn Anton, creator of Popspages.com.

With monthly fees ranging anywhere from $50 to hundreds of dollars for the other major online directories, small businesses or people just starting out, can't afford to pay that price for exposure. Popspages' free listing is equivalent to other directories’ enhanced listings and offers a Premium Listing for only $49 a year or a Showcase Listing, which allows businesses to add a video, or commercial, for only $99 per year.

“The basic listings are free for all, but the enhanced Premium Listing for $49 a year is only open to the first 10 advertisers to select this option per category and zip code. The limited number of Premium Listings makes it critical to join early because once the spots are taken, more likely than not, the advertisers won't give up the slot," explains Anton.

The Premium Listing will get the advertiser ranked in the top ten of their selected category and zip code, giving them more exposure. The Premium Listing will also allow them to add a photo gallery and product prices and, coming soon, a Buy Now button. For only $99 a year, businesses can also upgrade to a Showcase Listing that allows them to upload a video or commercial.

With hundreds of businesses already taking advantage of this new affordable online service, Popspages is an economical alternative to the other choices out there online.

Other features of the site include free classified ads, free job postings, free event listings, free expert article submissions which also boost search engine optimization, and of course the free printable coupon option mentioned earlier.

With multiple listings, hundreds of internal and external website links and the repetition of keywords used naturally on online directories, online directories such as Popspages are typically more search engine friendly than a basic website. As a result, online directory advertisements get noticed. With the level of online competition and businesses competing for space on search engines, it’s good business sense to register on as many online directories as possible and Popspages.com is a free, yet lucrative, option.
