Being part of a local online business directory is more than advertising, it’s also about supporting local and your local business community. The Local View fully supports the shop local ethos with a focus on small independent businesses like yours. We understand the challenges SME’s face out there but within our local directories you become more visible, supported and learn about what is happening locally in terms of grants, funding, business support courses, local news and events, share knowledge and network with other like minded businesses. All of this will help strengthen your brand and improve your online presence.
