SeeMyLocal has arrived in Stapleford and looks set to transform the way that local businesses and organisations interact online with residents and visitors.

If you have a local business you are entitled to a fantastic free microsite which will appear on the relevant SeeMyLocal platform and on www.staplefordtowncentre.com – our new community site. This can serve as a quick and easy alternative to having your own website or could work alongside your existing website and drive more traffic to it.

By bringing all of the listings from Stapleford businesses together into a state of the art directory we can showcase our town with pride and make it easy for people in and around Stapleford to discover and support their local businesses.

Businesses can easily sign up themselves, but to get things moving we are making it quicker still for selected early businesses by creating the listing for them. Please let me know if your interested and I will email a questionnaire to you which will give us the information we need. You will then need to get at least 7 photos taken. We can support you with this if necessary.

Ultimately we would like you to take control of your own listing by signing up to SeeMyLocal yourself and taking over your microsite. This again is totally free and it will only take a few minutes. There is no obligation for you to do so, but it will enable you to make the most of your microsite and do all the following easily and at no cost:

Create a unique name that enables people to go directly to your page. eg. SeeMyLocal.co.uk/CraftedNaturally
Update your microsite as often as you like
Add detailed listings of products or groups of products to make your microsite more interesting and more visible to our searches on our site and Google.
Create a newsfeed that interested people can read and subscribe to enabling you to share news of new products and special offers

If you are looking for the catch, there isn’t one. SeeMyLocal want all local businesses to get involved, not just those prepared or able to pay for it, which is why they have no intentions of charging for this facility. The programme will be financed through banner advertising on the family of SeeMyLocal sites plus other revenue streams which will result from having the number 1 resource for local information.

You have a unique role to play in this process. Without your listing we will be presenting an incomplete picture which is a missed opportunity for you and for Stapleford. We therefore hope you will get involved and encourage those that you know to do the same. Thank you for supporting Stapleford.
