Your One-Stop Rancho Resource
We are excited to unveil a slightly revised name and look. More importantly, SO MUCH MORE CONTENT and features... Check out the brand new calendar and social media sites.
Why the change?
The name and logo now reflect what this on-line resource is REALLY all about. It is not just an on-line directory but a GUIDE that will help the businesses, residents and travelers new to the area quickly and easily find many of the local resources they need to make themselves at home in our community. What's more, it will also be a great way for long-time residents as well as employees working in the area to learn about some resources that they might have been unaware of. We just want to ensure that everyone can take full advantage of all that Rancho Cordova has to offer. And that covers a LOT!
|Formerly know as:|
Why should I use the GUIDE instead of Google?
This website localizes your searches to information relevant to this area: the businesses, events, community news. We've even created a local social network so conversations and information will be focused on what is happening locally, not globally. What's more, YOU can leave feedback and comments on what is important to you and the community.
What else has changed beside the name?
Well, we are offering ALL businesses in the Rancho Cordova corridor (which is roughly from the Folsom Premium Outlets to Sac State) a FREE listing in our directory. We have a list of 5200+ names that has been loaded into the directory. We will be contacting each business to confirm their information and also to let them know that by adding a description, keywords, images, their logo and specials, that the GUIDE will be even more successful in driving business to their door (our goal is make your phone or cash register ring).
How much does adding extra information and pictures cost?
We pride ourselves in offering affordable options to businesses of ALL sizes. Our most popular package is a "featured business" which cost less than $30 / month! There are two options for even less to fit every budget AND if you really want to maximize on this on-line presense we are seeking category, feature and website sponsors. CLICK HERE for details.
I don't have a website. Does that matter?
Not at all. Our one-page featured business profiles are SO complete that many businesses use them for their website. Simply register a domain name and point it at this page. So you now have a webpage that you can promote on your business cards, etc. We FIRMLY believe every business needs a effective web presence to compete effectively. What's more, this will help you in search engine (Google) marketing. CLICK HERE for more information about this.
How will people learn about the website?
Good question! We have a multi-media approach!
Print: We recently signed a collaborative agreement with "Go for it" magazine. We will be advertising in their FREE monthly publication which prints 10,000 copies each month at over 200 distribution points.
Signage: Local businesses will soon be able to display a poster or rackcards at their storefronts to demonstrate their participation as well as to get the word out.
Events: We will have booths at many of the local Rancho Cordova events.
Emails: To keep everyone updated on the lastest news and tips. Drawings and incentives to join the newsletter and to pass it on are already in place!
Social Media: To start a buzz about things of interest and importance to the community with links to the GUIDE for resources.
Sounds interesting... What next?
This is just the beginning. You will begin to see a stockpile of information, ideas, resources, listings and links! If you have a business, make sure you get your listing updated!! If you are an individual, participate in the social network.
You are just beginning to see that our definition of the WWW is Win-Win-Win. Win for Businesses - Win for the Customers - Win for the Community!
