Welcome To The World Of Local Webvertising!
What IS VancouverUSA.biz?
VancouverUSA.biz is an online business directory, promoting businesses in Clark County, Washington. The yellow pages of a phone book list various businesses in print form, providing ads to promote those businesses. We provide the same type of information via the Internet, concentrating on our specific geographic area, which is Clark County and its environs.
What does VancouverUSA.biz actually do?
We bring potential customers and businesses together by providing a concise, easy-to-use single source of information. Our responsibility is to make the public aware of you, and to assist in bringing new customers to your business.
As an advertiser, you have the opportunity to present your products and services to the public and to invite them to do business with you. It is our policy NOT to compete with our advertisers in any manner, so VancouverUSA.biz does not sell anything, except advertising space. We put the spotlight directly on you.
How Do We Do This?
By a highly-specialized form of internet advertising, called Local Webvertising, developed by VancouverUSA.biz.
Local Webvertising allows your business to advertise to a highly targeted local area, (in this case Clark County and its environs), via the internet. The internet has great appeal and pulling power. It provides your business with a ready-made source of potential new customers, because people prefer the internet over radio, tv, newspapers, magazines, or the yellow pages.
Potential customers have become used to looking online for business. They EXPECT to find businesses on line. To potential customers it's the OBVIOUS place to find anything.
Local Webvertising unlocks the power of the internet for your business, not only by allowing you to be found online, (where potential customers expect you're going to be), but also by putting you in a single, unified location, so they find you much faster and easier.
Local Webvertising brings customers to your business by:
- Getting the potential customer's attention.
- Creating interest in the products or services you offer.
- Creating a desire for those products or services
- Motivating the viewer the viewer to take action by visiting your place of business.
These four elements are essential to both the selling and the buying process.
Your Business MUST Be Represented On The Internet!!
The most recent A.C. Nielsen Ratings reports show Clark County to be one of the most internet-penetrated areas in America. More people use the internet here than almost anywhere else in the country. The report revealed these facts:

It's more effective than newspaper advertising..
There are limitations in regular print advertising: The size of the ad, where to run it, how often to run it, what to say in it, are all limited by space, time, and cost- especially cost.
Very few businesses can afford to run ads on a daily basis. Unless you have a very big advertising budget, or you can co-op, it isn't even feasible to think about. And no matter how carefully you plan, it's still a gamble. You have no way of knowing how many will see it, let alone how many will actually read it.
If you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on newspaper advertising, and it ends up in the bottom of the canary cage, or wrapping the garbage, how effective is that for you? How many new customers did it draw into your business? Studies show newspaper ads have a very short appeal- 3 to 5 days at most. That's why you have to continually run them.
AND EACH TIME YOU RUN AN AD, YOU PAY FOR IT!
But viewers who come to VancouverUSA.biz come here LOOKING for ads! That's what this site is about, and it's what they expect to find. How many people pick up a newspaper just to read the ads?
- It's more effective and a lot less expensive than the Yellow Pages.
A lot of viewers come to VancouverUSA.biz just to see who advertises on our site.
Nobody reads the Yellow Pages just to read the Yellow Pages! The only time somebody actually refers to them is when they need something in particular. But viewers who come to our site looking for one thing often find other businesses they are interested in.
VancouverUSA.biz generates interest, even if it wasn't there to start with!
Not only is it very expensive, as this graphic shows, but even if your ad happens to offer what someone is looking for, it's usually surrounded by several similar ads.
And size is very important in this form of advertising. Statistics prove most people look at only the biggest ads, believing companies with big ads are more reliable than those with smaller ads.
What if your business can't afford to place a full-page ad? What if your competition CAN?
Local Webvertising "levels the playing field".
Even if you are a "Mom & Pop" operation, you have the same opportunity to get your message across as the "big guys". And you'll be seen more often, because potential customers don't have to look all over the internet to find you!
It promotes local business to local residents..
Sure it's nice to get business from other places, but most of your customers will come from Clark County. They WILL do business with you, if they know about you. You are as important to local residents as those residents are to you.
Our viewers know the only businesses allowed to advertise on VancouverUSA.biz are local. That's what Local Webvertising is all about-local business and local consumers coming together via the Internet.
It generates more income for your business.
When viewers see your ad on VancouverUSA.biz, they know you are a LOCAL business. They know you are interested in doing business in our community. You are the kind of business they are looking for. Naturally they're going to come to you first, whenever they need your particular products or services.
Here's just one testimonial:
Vancouverusa.biz has brought an element of exposure and convenience to our business that did not exist before.
New tenants find us from across the U.S. as well as here locally.
In addition, when we receive calls from other sources (i.e., yellow pages), we can refer them to vancouverusa.biz to see our facility, map and offerings whereas in the past we would typically mail them a flyer. This eliminates that step.
Often we find ourselves talking to them as they're viewing our facility on vancouverusa.biz and we can answer any questions they have at that moment
Our business has definitely increased since joining vancouverusa.biz and they are continually doing more to broaden their exposure and ease of access.
We look forward to another year of great service and results!
