"70% of local consumers have used the internet to find a local business."

We know there are many sites out there which try to help people find businesses in local areas. What better site to be involved with than one which is being used by the very local residents and visitors you are trying to reach? This site is designed with local Des Moines residents in mind, and also targeted to visitors or people who may be new to the area. We take a personal interest in the success of Des Moines' south side, and we put in the extra time and effort to make sure visitors to this site get the results they're looking for (unlike bigger sites which try to cover the whole country, and rely exclusively on user information to stay up to date). By becoming a member of this site, you can make sure you stand out from the crowd and keep our community informed about everything your business or group has to offer:
