NewStone Guide Leaps Forward as Finder411!
Chapel Hill, NC, January 25, 2012 — NewStone Guide is becoming Finder411 to increase consumer reach and expand as a business network site. While Finder411 holds firm to its mission—providing top-notch advertising, high visibility and hassle-free communication for local businesses and consumers—it has strengthened its strategy and brand.
The goal of Finder411 is to help Vendors achieve the best web exposure. Local consumers will find both Finder411 and its additional category-specific affiliate sites on Google®. Finder411 works with Premium Vendors to make their Profile highly ranked for relevant Google® searches. For its Vendors, this means greater web visibility, more calls of inquiry, and more business clients.
Finder411 will continue to benefit its Vendors as well as their Customers. Local businesses who become Vendors will receive focused, affordable and hassle-free advertising space while their potential Customers will receive accurate information and Reviews, free-of-charge.
With the unique Customer Feedback System, Finder411 Vendors and their Customers will maintain a voice in Reviews of local businesses, and these Reviews will only be posted when a Customer has used the Vendor. Finder411 Vendors will receive a complementary blog post that shares up-to-date news and information about the Vendor with the local community.
Introducing Finder411: An Online Directory of Triangle Companies with Plans to Expand Nationally
Chapel Hill, NC, March 28, 2011—Local company Finder411 is pleased to announce the introduction of its first product: an easily-navigable online directory where local residents can search by key word and zip code to find local businesses. Based on customer reviews, which will be available to read, each company listed in Finder411 will receive a rating on a five-star scale. Companies included in Finder411 will be plumbers, florists, dentists, electricians, landscapers, and a myriad of others.
"We want to provide a simple venue where people can easily find a company that provides the service they need," says Finder411 founder Steve Doyle, "and more importantly, we want reviews available so people can make informed decisions."
While the original launch, scheduled for second quarter of 2011, will focus on the NC Triangle Area, Doyle plans for the guide to expand to Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and eventually to reach a national level. And though Doyle plans to go national, he wants the companies that are part of Finder411 to be local to their own cities.
"Finder411 will help local people find local businesses," says Doyle. "And all of this without the requirement of collecting fees from customers or charging exorbitant advertising rates for the vendors."
Supporting local businesses is important to Doyle, as well as providing a user-friendly site, void of distracting advertisements. Finder411 will offer easily accessible, usable information.
"We want to streamline the search process," says Doyle. "We want people to find the information they need and to do so without any hassle."
Doyle's original company, NewStone Realty, helped to redefine the real estate industry by providing full-service real estate options at a reduced commission rate. With the Finder411, he hopes to help redefine the advertising industry. Companies listed on Finder411 will pay an affordable one-time fee a year for a posting that is available to customers via the internet 24/7—an extremely low price compared to standard advertising rates. There is no charge to users to search the guide or read reviews.
