BC Business Tip

Quick tip for local BC businesses: Did you know you can advertise for free on the “BC Marketplace” website?

This is a great platform for people to find businesses they can support locally- and it is a free advertising opportunity if you own a business here in BC. Any type of business can create a profile, and it only takes about 10 minutes to fill in your information. 

BC Marketplace gives five great reasons for advertising on their free platform:

  1. Reach a BC Based Audience: Allow us to use our network of businesses and community partners – we are supported by both the B.C. Government and the Government of Canada – throughout British Columbia to drive customers to your business.
  2. It’s Free and Simple: The process couldn’t be easier; simply complete our intake form and we’ll handle the rest. We aim to list businesses within two business days.
  3. Get Marketing Exposure: We will be using our marketing channels and networks, along with paid media, to promote the BC Marketplace to as wide an audience as possible – with thousands of page views each month.
  4. Improve Your Online Presence: Alongside our own search engine optimization efforts to promote the BC Marketplace, your business will enjoy a boost in your own SEO efforts with a link to your business listed on the BC Marketplace site.
  5. Ongoing Support: Once you’ve registered, you can edit and change your account as much as you like, including updating offers. If you do need any other support, we have a team to help.

Register your business today- OR, search for local shops & services here in your own community.
