Part of my job as a virtual assistant is to find places online that would be beneficial for my clients to utilize. I found one of those places just the other day and decided I needed to share it with all of you: Manta. Manta gives small companies a big voice. With over 64 million profiles for businesses and organizations, Manta is the largest free source of small company information on the internet. And it is continuing to grow.
Their custom search capabilties make it easy to find potential customers and make possible business connections in their vast database. It's also a huge portal to promote yourself and your business. Manta allows you to create a profile that includes your contact info, business hours, links to your website and blogs, a brief bio, Twitter feed, Facebook connection, videos and even a direct connection for visitors to search everywhere you and your company are located on the web.
Manta also provides tips and advice on running your small or mid-sized company via their free Manta View newsletter. They've even compiled reports from such market data research companies as Datamonitor, ICON, Wright Reports and SGE Executive Tracker that you can view at the click of a button.
So, if you are looking for a great place to create an online profile, promote your business and connect with others, you might want to try Manta. Manta can give your small company a big voice!
