FREE Deals, Offers, Bargains available throughout the site!
Welcome to My Town Homepage - a website for businesses unlike any other you've seen!
One of the purposes of the site is that it should help businesses connect with your customers in your area. That's not new. There are other sites out there that will let you do that "for a fee". Then there's traditional ways of marketing through things like local newspapers and printers where you can advertise or promote your products "for a fee".
At My Town Homepage, in most areas of our site, you won't be asked for a fee because you'll get it for FREE!
FREE - List your business on our site. Not just the usual little listing where you can get a name, address and phone number. On My Town Homepage you can get a full page for your business for free, including lots of useful ways that you can use that page to give your customers info. See below for further info.
FREE - Want to promote your individual products online for free? You've got it with My Town Homepage! We'll let you list any and all of your products on our site for nothing. Every item you post will have an individual page for you to tell your customer all about it. You can then direct them to your own web page or store or print off a voucher so that the customer can buy it. More details below.
FREE - Promote your Sales and Special Offers. Normally you'd pay for an advert in your local press or pay to get a leaflet printed. Forget that! With My Town Homepage you can promote your Sale or Special Offer for FREE. We'll let customers easily find your offer and then give you a full page to promote your offer. More details below.
FREE - Promote a Daily Deal in your area. We'll let you be the only business in your area to be promoting a special Daily Deal in your area. We'll let you post it on our site for free. We'll promote it for you through our newsletter for free. We'll tell all our Facebook and Twitter followers about it (you've guessed it) for free. Once you've made your sales we'll ask for a small commission fee but that'll probably be way cheaper than other Daily Deal sites. More info below.
FREE - Added Value. With My Town Homepage your company won't just be promoted through our Web Page. We'll help to promote you through our Facebook and Twitter pages and through our regular Newsletters. You'll be getting way more value for money......oh we forgot...you'll probably not be paying any money!
