Veteran Business Guide – Welcome!
18 Aug 2016
Welcome to Veteran Business Guide! Chris and I wanted to take a few minutes and share a bit about why we started VBG, what’s new to the site, and what’s coming in the near future. We are excited to get going and help fellow veteran business owners increase their exposure and maximize the power of the veteran community.
When we decided on the course of Veteran Business Guide, we had one mission in mind: help get businesses owned by veterans in front of as many potential customers as possible. Our website, veteranbusinessguide.com, is but one method for doing this but more on that later.
We want Veteran Business Guide to be synonymous with integrity when it comes to our listings and the businesses we promote. In order to do this, we must require any business listing to provide proof of veteran status and majority ownership in the business. We will be reviewing every listing and none will be posted until this review is complete. The documentation we require is easy to obtain but essential to the integrity of our site.
What’s New to the Site?
Even in the limited time the site has been live, we have already added a few enhanced features for our sponsors to take advantage of.
Enhanced Social Media – each Blue and White Page sponsor will have the ability to have their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds right on their page. For Facebook, visitors to your listing will be able to post comments straight to your Facebook timeline! Take a look for yourself here.
Rich Text Editor for Listings – most listing sites only have text-based company descriptions. We now offer a rich text editor for Blue and White page listings. This gives listing owners a LOT more control over how their listing(s) look including additional imaging and video capabilities.
Free Premium Listing for 501(c)3 Organizations – we are proud to now offer a free PREMIUM listing (White Page) to all 501(c)3 organizations that are dedicated to helping the veteran community. If you are interested, you can contact us HERE and we will let you know what you need to get listed.
Deals for Vets – we are dedicating a portion of our site to businesses that offer special discounts and pricing to our veterans. If you know of someone that has a business with this type of offer, let’s get them listed!
Direct Mail Opportunities – we will soon be offering direct mail opportunities in the Atlanta area (to start). Direct mail costs can be very high if done just for your business but a mailer with your ad, and other veteran business ads, is very affordable. We can guarantee your company will be in front of thousands of potential customers. Stay tuned for more details on this!
