By National Main Street Center | From Main Street Story of the Week | January 22, 2016 |
After many months of design and set-up we are excited to announce the launch of the new Allied Services Directory! This directory is a listing of Main Street America Allied Members—including many you will recognize as exhibitors or speakers at our annual conference—who provide goods and services to Main Streets just like yours.
The updated directory has a number of great new features, with two in particular that we’d like to highlight. First, with Main Streeters so often on the move around their districts, the new site is mobile friendly. Now whether you’re touring a building with a new business owner, or sitting in a meeting when the board president mentions how great it would be to get some new park benches downtown, you’ll always be able to access the directory site.
The second new feature we’d like to highlight is that you—the customer—can directly input testimonials about your experience with a company. Your testimonials are beneficial to both fellow Main Streeters as well as the businesses, so please be sure to post about your positive interactions with members on their directory listing.
We strongly encourage you to use the directory when you are looking for new products or services for your district. These businesses and individuals have been long-time supporters of Main Streets throughout the country and we want to show them how much we appreciate what they do.
Special thanks to Miguel Wong at CoilSprings LLC for designing and maintaining the directory. CoilSprings provides a wide range of web services that include full-service web design and cloud hosting, as well as custom application development.
