RegionalHUBsites.com, a developer of specialized Web-based search directories for niche industries, has launched a Web site for Ohio companies in the manufacturing industries. RegionalHUBsites.com is the first new-media company to focus on regional industrial.
The site, www.manufacturingOH.com, creates an online buyers community of more than 20,000 manufacturing firms and includes a free manufacturing classified ad section where manufacturers and purchasing agents may post manufacturing-related requests for proposals, job opportunities and equipment sales.
We believe that the two primary ways that potential clients can find manufacturers on the Web are through search engines and links. says Donald Ferris, founder of the RegionalHUBsites.com. Search engines are becoming more and more cluttered as thousands of businesses flood daily on to the Web. And lets face it not everyone is going to fit into the top 10 or 20 spots of a search engine response. What weve done is to build a user friendly, highly functional, target-specific, searchable directory.
Its well known that people like to do business regionally, if possible. Our sites are built upon that premise, he says. We believe that more and more, people are using the Web like a phone book. You have to be listed in the right directories in order for people to find you quickly.
We also know that search engines like hub sites, since they contain a large amount of links and allow users to locate the specific information they requested. We also believe that youll have better luck being spotted by a potential client if you are listed in a specially designed and heavily promoted directory.
