Flathead Valley Business Directory™ – Montana ID# A212832
The Flathead Valley Business Directory™, DBA the Flathead Guide was created and is maintained by The Webunet Group in Kalispell. Our company has been publishing and marketing online since 1993. We live here in the Flathead, we work here and play here. We know the appeal of the Flathead Valley because our family moved here over 10 years ago so that we could experience this magic every day. This is our home and like you, our workplace.
Internet Marketing is our Business
The Webunet Group is a search engine optimization and social media marketing company. Over the years, our client list has included companies as diverse as Virgin Records, Frito-Lay, The Texas Rangers MLB, TV and pro sports personalities, but our emphasis has always been small businesses. We have helped many Flathead companies leverage the Internet and maximize the effectiveness of their web marketing. From Realtors, dentists, plumbers and hotels to lawyers, non-profits and fishing charters, we have made a difference for scores of NW Montana companies. As one example, see this 2012 client case study (click headline)…
These days it seems that everyone you meet is a “Social Media or SEO expert”. It’s an easy claim to make because there are really no accredited qualifications required and anyone can declare themselves an “instant expert”. The Webunet Group however, has been involved in Internet marketing since the early 90s with a focus on SEO and all things social for the past five years.
Actually you could say we wrote the books on these topics. In 1998 Macmillan published “The Complete Small Business Internet Guide” and the “SEO & Social Media Marketing” was published in 2010. We ‘get it’ and using our expertise to promote this directory is one of our primary objectives.
About the Flathead Guide™
We cannot claim that every company that gets listed in the Flathead Guide will experience the dramatic success that Captain Norm’s Fishing Charter has seen, but we can promise that being listed here will mean that the millions of people who visit northwest Montana and the Flathead Valley will have a better chance of finding your business.
Our mission has four primary objectives:
- Develop this guide to become the premiere directory of businesses servicing the Flathead Valley
- Provide a smartphone-optimized resource for the millions of people who visit NW Montana every year
- Deliver valuable backlinks to your website from a local authority website
- Send highly-targeted traffic to your website – and make your phone ring
The ‘Mobile Web’ is where it’s at
Today, approximately 25% of the traffic to your website is already coming from smartphones. It is estimated that by 2014 smartphones and tablets will eclipse desktops and laptops as the #1 access device to the Internet.
The Flathead Guide business directory will capture many of those mobile searches and help you ease the transition to mobile-ready information. Even if you don’t have a mobile-ready website, people can email or call your phone directly from your listing without ever visiting your main website.
Much more than a business listing
Visitors will be able to tap your phone number and their smartphone will call your business. Or, they can tap your email address and send a message or ask a question, and they can visit your website. Additionally, you can add a coupon or an in-store promotion.
You own your listing!
When you setup your account, you will create a username & password and have access to your listing at any time. This means that you can make modifications to your listing, add or change pictures and create promotions or specials as frequently as you like.
