After several years living on the Emerald Coast of Florida, I had come to realize that there was not a “Go To Website” that is comprehensive enough to include all things about the Emerald Coast. Sure, you can visit the Emerald Coast Tourist Development Council site which is a great resource about tourism-related businesses. However, since my business doesn’t target tourists, this organization only helps me indirectly by working to keep the tourism-dependent businesses busy so they have to funds to advertise using my company, Perfect Imprints. There is the NWF Daily News, which is a source for area news. There are radio and television station websites which provide advertisements about upcoming events. There are multiple Chamber of Commerce organizations along the Emerald Coast, which provide business directories and events, but only for their Chamber members.
What I wanted was a source offering information about all businesses and their events, whether they have paid to be included in the directory or not. I’m looking for an area calendar that is so complete that I’ll never be misinformed about an event or miss another event because I didn’t know it was happening. I want a source that can easily direct me to the right place to make a purchase. I want a source that tells all about the attractions of the area. This source would not be prejudiced to just tourists or locals. It would be a site that works for both locals and visitors. But in the end, I really just want a website that will benefit my business and help me to make the money needed to take care of my family. This website WILL benefit ALL businesses who are involved.
The site I envisioned would be a network of businesses that are intertwined so tightly as a community that as one strengthens, all business along the Emerald Coast strengthens. Simply by being part of this website, your business would benefit immensely and strengthen even further over time. This site would be the definition of community. This site would define the friendly nature of the population along the Emerald Coast. This site would revolutionize the way we attract new clients and sales.
Well, my friends, the site I’ve had been developing in my mind was born as EmeraldCoastHub.com on April 18, 2012.
