Experts Needed

Greetings Portland-Vancouver business owner!

If you have ever attended a chamber of commerce meeting or a local business networking group, you are probably familiar with the one minute commercial. It’s a pivotal part of these types of gatherings, offering attendees a chance to be recognized and connect with other businesses. One minute is a nice round figure of time that fits both the attention span of the listener, as well as the capacity of the speaker, and helps each business owner make a clear impression of their level of expertise and the benefits their business brings to the community.

While these kinds of gatherings are especially useful to B to B businesses and other local relationship-based business models, they fall short of helping local businesses reach new consumers directly with a similarly optimized, concise and credible message. Where does today’s consumer make their buying decisions? Online. What are they looking for during their research? Local, trustworthy experts. How do they go about it? Google. And how will you as a local expert and your business as a solution provider stand out from the pack?

It does not matter if your company website is already near the top results of Google. To the consumer, you are just one sign board on a list of many options. If your problem solving contributions show up on a journalism-based local expertise website on that same search result however, the credibility factor of your message goes up dramatically as your objective advice is given on your LocaSource blog. is a truly local services directory for the greater Vancouver / Portland metropolitan area, committed to building the local economy.
