Building industry: web directory launch in PMB

2011-03-17 00:00

A NEW web directory has been launched in Pietermaritzburg, specifically targeting city-based building and home improvement contractors.

The new online directory is known as and joins the existing, which was established about two years ago.

“The Durban site has grown exponentially over the last few years and we are now ready to go national,” Mark Allen of PMB Contractors told The Witness.

Allen, who is also an associate consultant with Finserv — a company that develops leaders in business and “life”, has been involved in sales for more than two decades.

The new offering will encompass Pietermaritzburg and the KZN midlands.

It is clear that the venture has grown significantly recently.

“We had more hits this year to date in Durban than the whole of 2010, so it is clearly a winning formula.”

The key people involved in the venture are Johan Blignaut (owner), Craig Botha and Allen.

“The web is incredibly powerful. We use search engine optimisation and indexing [Google, Bing and Yahoo] to appear top on all web searches. We also measure the stats,” Allen added.
