Business Profile - Join the Community

Live Communities is a linked group of business directories that promote local business in your community.  Each directory provides local business information and links you to information that will help you learn more.  It's all about your business!

What is a Business Profile?  

We want to expose your business and services within our Communities. Do you sell the best darn cookies in town? Can your staff juggle lemons while making lemonade? Is your furniture hand-made by a monk in the Himalayas? Every business has quirks – those little things that keep your customers coming back for more – show them off with a business profile. 

A 'BusIcon' is a link to your business profile that is a FULL page all about you.  When in doubt .. click it!

Business Profile Features
Your Contact Information

A business profile provides all your contact information so that your current customers and NEW customers can get ahold of you.  Your address, phone number and a link to your website are all clearly displayed plus quick links to any social media tools that you use so that customers can follow and like you.

Your Services

Your profile lists all your unique and special services for everyone to read and learn about.  You can select a service to feature so that it will get extra exposure locally and in the community.  The home page of your town portal randomly selects featured services to display and there is a page dedicated to all featured services by businesses in your community.

Business Reminders

Remind your customers of upcoming seasons and events.  You get 12 reminders, one for each month.  With a little planning you create your 12 reminders for the year and then forget about it.  Every month your specific reminder just automagically appears.

Did You Know

Its amazing how many things customers just don't know about your business.  "Did You Know" information windows are those little things that you continuously are telling your customers and surprised when they say they didn't know that.   You can list as many as you want and two will randomly appear on your business profile page and also on your portal home page.   A new selection is displayed with every page visit.

Business Hours

Post your business hours on your profile.  Are you open Sunday or late on special nights?  This feature dynamically hilites the current day of the week and has space to post special events happening soon.   Watch for a special holiday feature that informs customers of your business hours over Christmas.
