Scranton Portal Placeholders for Local Businesses and Professionals

Like a brand, spanking new office building, the Scranton Portal is up, running and will “build to suit” each of the placeholder pages listed below. In addition, there are active listings for several local businesses that give the prospective client an idea of how simply or elaborately a portal page can be made. The Scranton Zoo and Houdini Museum are two of the Scranton Attractions listed there. Wade’s World Music is featured because, well, that’s where the portal manager goes for vital gear like guitar strings and picks!

Best of all, unlike the placeholder pages, an actual portal listing is “one-way”: if it’s found through the search engines, the viewer can’t just wander off and browse the other listings. That traffic has only one way to go — toward the client’s business!

New Scranton Local Portal is Online!

What’s the one thing that businesses and professionals know? Their business. What’s the one thing many of them have a hard time with? Advertising. What do they do about it? Follow the leader — right off a cliff!

It’s the ones that are spending big bucks on Yellow Pages ads, broadcast media spots, classified and display ads in print media and all the other questionable possibilities (billboards? bench ads?) that are hurting. Every month, they shell out all this money, and for what? Non-verifiable ROI. They lament, “50% of my ad budget is wasted. I just don’t know which 50%!

Take equipment rental services: none of them show up in the search engines on the first page of the search results for Scranton. The Scranton Portal fixes that. Along with support from blogs like this and social networking pages that point to the business, this portal itself ranks highly for the Scranton market. Even better, there is a “placeholder” page for a local Scranton equipment rental service that is ready for a new owner.

Go to the Scranton Portal and see why this is the way to go for businesses, professionals and local traffic that’s laser-targeted at the specific types of firms there.

From Clueless Newbie to Money Making Business Websites in Scranton and Worldwide!

When I began this blog as an experiment, I was struggling with an outdated machine and a dialup connection here in lovely, historic Scranton, PA. My, how things have changed! With a bit of business planning and using my main strength, I’ve gone from puzzled and primitive to profitable and pre-eminent. By researching and presenting (ghostwriting) how-to information for Direct Response Internet Marketers, I’ve learned a ton! I can tell you all about the things you need to do here in Scranton to drive prospects to business websites and give them a call-to-action Don Corleone would be proud of (“I’m gonna make ’em an offer they don’t refuse!”)

I’ve made enough money working online to pay my bills, upgrade my computer, get a cable connection to the Internet, make extended visits to my family who are out of state and even spring for custom-made T-shirts:

Local Scranton Money Making Business Websites

In January of this year, I was inspired by a fellow marketer to take what I know “local! He suggested that I show local Scranton business owners how to use the same methods that we use to drive traffic to local business websites and help the owners make money with their online presence. Now, for you local business owners that think you’ll need to set up some kind of online store to make money from your websites — think again! Unless you’re already doing some kind of mail order or catalog sales, it’s probably a really BAD idea to start doing it without knowing what you’re doing from experience (or without hiring a knowledgeable manager and staff devoted to this way of doing business).

Instead, you can use websites to drive customer traffic to your place of business, keep in touch with your current customer base and prospects, send out newsletters and emails that your viewers actually want (no SPAM) and offer coupons and discounts that will pull people into your place of business on its slowest day, turning it into your busiest day of the week!

For those businesses that already have competition in the Search Engines for Scranton, PA listings, there are certain “secret” practices that Direct Response Internet Marketers use to crush their competition and grind them into the dirt. They’re legal, ethical, moral and work like a charm! By using these same methods, just about any local brick-and-mortar business can dominate the first page of the Search Engine Results Pages (SERP’s) and either push their competition off the top spot or dilute their presence immensely.
