The world of writing reviews for the website Fiverr.com has opened my eyes to many great new sites. I was recently asked to review a new site that is a really neat new business networking site called FoundTown.
FoundTown is located at http://www.foundtown.com/ and is currently only in its Beta stages which is why it's only located in a few towns in Texas. However, the site plans on expanding to areas all over the country next year.
The site is kind-of like Groupon meets Facebook for businesses - it's this way of connecting customers to their local businesses, and lets local businesses share specials, coupons, and giveaways right there on the site.
For customers, the best advantages are that you can get great deals from your local businesses, and it's free to join the site.
For businesses, its a great way to advertise and get your name out there for little to nothing (I am not sure if they charge businesses a fee, but even if they did I'm assuming it would be pretty darn cheap!). It's probably a heck of a lot more successful than putting your fliers up around town and hoping they get seen before they get torn down or buried!!
I hope that FoundTown comes to my area soon! In the meantime, I recommend any of you who are in the areas in Texas that are covered by the site currently would consider joining up on the site!
