Get Listed in the Best
of CT directory for as little as a $1 a day. Something
any business can afford, and something any business
CAN NOT afford to NOT do.
More than 1
million searches are performed
monthly for CT business's, products, and services
online. Are you part of those searches? If your
customers can not find you, you are missing out
on huge revenue potential.
Normally, the worst reason for doing anything is
"because everyone else is..."
However, if you're marketing a product or service
and you are NOT advertising where your competition
is, you'll find yourself left behind very suddenly.
The Internet is one of the first places a person
who has access to a computer will go to get information.
As one source put it, "the Internet 'IS' information."
Whether it's information on Hepatitis C or a specific
product or service, the World Wide Web is *the*
place your customers look to for information.
In the past, when your customers were looking for
a product or service, their easiest option would
be to pull out the Yellow Pages to search for a
store or company in their area that provided the
product or service they were in need of. Sometimes
this supplied a name and phone number. Sometimes
an address. On more rare occasions, a picture advertisement
with a list of services or products.
With the Internet today, that same customer can
go to a search engine or index and be presented
with a list of businesses that fit their needs.
Have you ever done a web search and receive back
1.8 million results? And then not be able to find
what you are looking for? With Best of CT. We take
the guess work out of it. Do a search online and
see where you rank? Best of CT advertises in local
papers, on the radio, on TV, and of course on the
Do you already have a website? Those web pages should
be loaded with product pictures and price lists,
maps and phone numbers, and even online Shopping
Cart system's which allow the customer to order
products and services--all without ever having to
leave the house or office. But what good are they
if no one can find them?
Perhaps you have a "service" oriented
practice such as accounting, law, or medicine that's
already doing well and you're wondering why you
should burden yourself with the added expense of
a listing. Simply put, not having a listing will
soon be like not having a listing in your local
Yellow Pages. In the Web world, this is referred
to as a "corporate presence." Even if
your best business comes by word-of-mouth, your
potential customers may want to check you out. BestofCT
incorporates all of this into 1 package. How? By
placing your mailing address, phone, mobile and
fax numbers, business logo, email, website link,
map to your business, coupons, and reviews. Best
of all our site is submitted to and spidered by
650,000 search engines daily. Making searches more
relevant. By placing a listing you get added visibility
and credibility. Especially if you provide a public
service and your gold is to get information to a
large number of people almost instantaneously. Additionally,
the cost of our listing is probably the most cost
effective advertising you'll ever do.
BestofCT is a highly targeted way to extend your
marketing reach throughout Connecticut. The special
combination of our Web Site Directory, Event Listing,
Photos, articles, and Email Newsletter gives Bestofct
and our advertisers a unique ability to reach potential
customers seeking the best that Connecticut has

ARE YOU AN AWARE BUSINESS OWNER?
Do you realize that more and more people are going
online to find what they are looking for? The traditional
yellow pages might not be the first place that people
turn to when trying to locate or reach a business.
Already have a website? That is just a first step
in getting your business reachable online. How do
people know how to get to your website? Hopefully
you have multiple avenues of driving customers and
potential customers to your website. If not, you
may have wasted your money developing and hosting
your website. Let BestofCT.com, be another layer
of advertising that drives people to your website
and ultimately, your place of business.
Don't have a
website? Though we highly recommend getting
one developed with an up-to-date look and feel,
and pertinent, up-to-date information, having one
is not necessary to advertise with BestofCT.com.
The 1 question
we are asked most from business's
Bestofct.com is great, BUT how does the general
public know to visit Bestofct.com if they are seeking
to locate or reach a business? Simple - we spend
a significant amount of money on advertising ourselves.

Affordability - BestofCT
offers its members EVERYTHING a business needs
to effectively market their products and services
online, and we do it for a fraction of the cost
of our competitors. There are no hidden fees or
- We continually work to drive visitors to our website.
We have been and will continue participating in
several trade shows, golf tournaments, and various
charity events to promote our website. We will also
be advertising on billboards throughout the state,
as well as through radio, newspaper, mass emailing
and much more.
Ease of Use
- Each business member of BestofCT is provided with
a password-protected login to an online content
management system. Members may login 24/7/365 and
make unlimited modifications to their account. This
backend database has been designed with our clients
in mind and the result is a user-friendly interface
that requires no technical skills above and beyond
those used in every day word processing.
- BestofCT is dedicated to the growth of Connecticuts
economy. Not only have we built a state-of-the-art
web portal that will bring Connecticut communities
together, we will also be participating in many
community events and charity functions throughout
The real question
- Where do you rank in portals like Yahoo and Google,
and the like? Sure they are great search engines
and you should index your website within them, but
how does that local individual who is looking for
your products and/or services find you buried within
their search results? Be a BIG FISH in a smaller
pond. Showing up as one of only a few "local"
greatly increases your chance of earning a new local
customer, thus resulting in a potentially high return
on your investment.
HOW MUCH MONEY
HAVE YOU SPENT RECENTLY in local newspaper
advertising, yellow page print advertising, coupon
books, etc.? These items have a limit on "potential"
audiences they reach. How much can you portray in
the small space provided with this means of marketing?
Our services have virtually no such limit on who
it's potential audience will be. AND, how long did
the local newspaper run your advertisement? Your
ad on BestofCT.com will be here 24/7/365 during
your membership. With how inexpensive our services
are, how many customers would it take to drive towards
your business for this expense to be justified.
We are finding that the typical answer is one!
Keep in mind however, that
we do not ask you to replace all of your print advertising
as we also feel it to be a very useful and powerful
means of marketing your business. We simply ask
to add an online marketing layer to your marketing
