Melbourne, FL, September 20, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Military veterans who own and operate businesses around the United States continue to flock to VeteranOwnedBusiness.com, one of the leading directories online for veteran owned and service disabled veteran owned businesses.
VeteranOwnedBusiness.com is a comprehensive directory of businesses throughout the United States owned by veterans, active duty military, reservists and service disabled veterans of the Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard and National Guard. VeteranOwnedBusiness.com was released online on Veteran’s Day 2008 and has already received over 250,000 visitors and nearly 1.5 million page views this year alone. Site users come from all walks of life and include procurement specialists from government agencies as well as purchasing people from small businesses all the way up to Fortune 500 companies. The easy to use interface also allows the average consumer as well as fellow veterans who wants to show their support for our country’s military heroes a quick way to search for products and services that are all unique in the fact that they are made by, serviced by and/or sold by United States military veterans.
“This marks a significant milestone for VeteranOwnedBusiness.com,” said Brian K. St.Ours, VeteranOwnedBusiness.com’s Founder and President. “Our team has been working tirelessly for nearly a year to reach as many veteran owned and service disabled veteran owned businesses as possible so we can hopefully help keep some from shutting their doors during these very trying economic times. We’ve received thousands of emails from everyone from a grandmother in New York whose grandson is stationed in Afghanistan to a person who runs the supplier diversification program at a large telecommunications company all mentioning they are glad they found VeteranOwnedBusiness.com and proudly use it when searching for products or services online.”
Membership in VeteranOwnedBusiness.com is absolutely free. Each qualifying company gets a very detailed online company profile which includes contact information, directions with a detailed mapping system, a product/service description, link to the company’s website (if one exists) and several other details. Each member’s listing is integrated into VeteranOwnedBusiness.com’s search capability so each company, product and/or service can be found geographically, by category and even within a certain radius of a zip code.
“VeteranOwnedBusiness.com is very much a work in progress. We will be implementing many new major user and visitor enhancements over the next few months as we work toward our next key milestone of 5,000 business listings,” said Ray Myers, Lead Project Developer for VeteranOwnedBusiness.com.
Veterans, active duty military, reservists and especially service disabled veterans who own a business are encouraged to visit VeteranOwnedBusiness.com for more information and to sign up for their company’s free business membership.
