Hollywood, Florida - As the family of MetroGuide.com, Inc. (MetroGuide) websites continues to offer increasingly relevant local content, its RetailGuide service, found at http://RetailGuide.com, now boasts a presence in more than 110 cities.
CEO Mark Metz calls expansion of RetailGuide listings " part of our company's push to reach not just the ever-increasing number of consumers searching for this content, but to develop closer working relationships with small and large businesses hungry for greater Internet exposure."
"The more content we offer, the more visitors to our site not only find what they want, but return for more," Metz said. That has been a hallmark of our long-standing relationship to our loyal visitors. Now that a critical mass of local businesses is emerging we are ready to work with them on a grand scale." As more and more businesses establish an Internet presence and/or look for more ways to capitalize on the billions of dollars consumers spend on the Internet, MetroGuide continues to develop services to offer these businesses.
Along with its popular brand of MetroGuide websites, including DiningGuide.com, EventGuide.com, and LodgingGuide.com, MetroGuide is preparing to roll out ProductGuide.com to work in tandem with RetailGuide.com.
"The powerful combination of the RetailGuide and ProductGuide brands is something we're extremely proud of," said Metz.
Scott Rogers, MetroGuide, President and General Counsel adds, "I'm not aware of any other company or site on the Internet that can boast as potent a branding strategy. We've been collecting Guide-related brands for more than a decade. Our vision has not wavered during this time."
