Barrie. FoundLocally. com - Media Inc. has just launched a new community information portal catering to Barrie and the vacation country north of Toronto.

Calgary, AB (PRWEB) June 2, 2006

Barrie. FoundLocally. com (http://barrie. foundlocally. com/): Media Inc. has just launched a new community information portal catering to Barrie and the vacation country north of Toronto. The 6-year-old company now has 19 sites servicing major cities and communities across Canada from Victoria, BC to St John’s, Nfld. FoundLocally sites consistently attract more than 10 million visitors a year.

The Barrie. FoundLocally. com (http://barrie. foundlocally. com/) site covers a wide geographic area, including more urban Barrie and Orillia, but also the Cottage country around Lake Simcoe and along the Trent-Severn Waterway, the Muskokas. It also includes the shore of Georgian Bay from Parry Sound south to the Collingwood & Wasaga Beach areas and west to Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula.

FoundLocally’s (http://foundlocally. com/) portal sites provide comprehensive information about each community including travel, entertainment, shopping, neighborhoods, sports, education and government. They are an excellent trip-planning resource for both business and leisure travelers. Site visitors can browse about a thousand pages of background information, pictures and maps about each community, and popular resources like weekly ski reports, movie show times and golf courses listings.

The sites also include a useful business directory (http://barrie. foundlocally. com/Searches. htm) where visitors can search for businesses by name, category, or location. The free business listings (http://barrie. foundlocally. com/General/FreeListings. htm) are entered by businesses themselves and they provide descriptions, contact details and other marketing information. FoundLocally. com is a popular marketing tool for small businesses often run from a home phone or cell phone, and therefore excluded from the phone directory. And once registered, businesses can post jobs, events, special offers and news announcements as part of their listings. This service is free and well suited to those businesses without a web site. Local businesses in the Barrie area may add themselves by going to Barrie. FoundLocally. com and clicking on “Free Listings.” (http://barrie. foundlocally. com/General/FreeListings. htm)

The site earns its revenues from traditional web “banner advertising” and optional “Logos & Links” in the business directory, which combines a web site hot-link, placement priority before free listings, and logo placement on all listing pages, for a small annual fee. Significant discounts are given to non-profit groups, and to organizations with multiple establishments.

Communities now covered by the portal include: Victoria, Greater Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Okanagan-Shuswap, Banff & The Rockies, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste Marie, Sudbury, Niagara Falls, Barrie-Muskokas, Ottawa-Gatineau, Fredericton, Charlottetown, Halifax, and St John’s.
