That’s NOT a month or even quarterly… it’s £24 A YEAR!
Yes each year, you get all of the above constantly working for your business
We believe local businesses underpin and are a focal point for their neighbourhood. They provide a place for social contact and conversation. They give an alternative to the supermarket for those without a car, that are not on the internet, who deal in a cash economy and shop on smaller budgets. They are part of a vibrant and healthy interdependent local economy, providing employment and business for nearby shops, producers and farms. When a Superstore opens, local businesses close. Local retailing reduces supply miles and green gases, offers variety and choice and helps to create sustainable communities.
After expenses, all our profits are currently re-invested in the local community. It is doubtful whether any other traditional business could offer you this internet hosting, exposure and advertising of your business included in an inexpensive Standard membership (that offers many other non-business benefits as well!). Most Business Directories, whether local or National, will be charging at least 5 to 10 times this amount or more for similar business listing details.
