With us FREE really is FREE

It's been a strange journey here at Being a pretty honest, straightforward kind of guy, I figured that when I made everything on our new site free, everyone would say, "Cool, it's free and I can use it as much as I want for free!? I'll tell my friends and we'll start using it."

But, no.. every day, I get someone asking me what the 'catch' is. Buddy, there is no catch. Terry and I both agreed that we would do our best to just let this site run completely free of any charges for years to come. The reason is, it is the internet economy at work here. We are just going to give it all away, access, usage, all of it forever and as more and more people realize that we are indeed giving it completely away, they will finally start using it and telling others.

As the growth comes from more and more people using, we get more and more hits. As the hits climb, local business people, who should already be listing in our business directory for free and posting all over their city page for free will probably want to make sure that they get all of the eyeballs that come to a page and they will decide to become a page sponsor, at their discretion. As all of these businesses in all of these towns decide to become page sponsors, we get the income required to run the site and YOU still get to use it for FREE... forever.

It's as simple an idea as we could come up with. So, no... there's no catch. Just use the site. We've got the long term plan hammered out.

Thanks for the ads
