Tamika explains that being featured in a Facebook Directory is the perfect way for local businesses to add to their marketing without selling. This unique way of marketing is called community control and it lets businesses have a greater control over getting their message and information to the community they serve. The local restaurants and businesses selected to be featured in the Facebook directory, can showcase their products and services, highlight special promotions and let the community of followers know how their business serves the community. As Lisa Williams puts it to local business owners she meets, "Build Community around your Business and your Community will build your Business."
A longtime community leader in Santa Clarita, Jim Ventress Chief Professional Officer of the Santa Clarita Boys & Girls Club, quotes “I highly recommend working with Lisa Williams and the SC Facebook Restaurant Directory. Lisa Williams is a true community partner and is well connected. She can definitely bring value to your restaurant. I worked with her on several promotions for the Club when she was Community Relations Manager for the Los Angeles Daily News.”
In addition to highlighting local restaurants, the Facebook directory will also feature information on things to do in the Santa Clarita Valley, and featured information about community organizations making the directory a one stop shop and a true community endeavor.
The first ever Santa Clarita Valley Facebook Restaurant Directory is now live and citizens of the Santa Clarita Valley will be able to take advantage of local restaurants giving back to the community with coupons, contest and specials from local restaurants.
Learn more by visiting Facebook and searching for Santa Clarita Valley Restaurants.
The directory can also be found Google.
