Finger Lakes, N.Y. — November 9, 2020 — Finger Lakes Connected is excited to officially announce the launch of their website that will connect consumers with local businesses.

This website is an online directory and highly anticipated marketing tool for the Finger Lakes area and was designed with local business owners in mind. The site is packed with local events, news, business spotlights, and feature stories. The goal is an initiative to keep local businesses relevant and for consumers to discover new ways to spend locally.

“While most directories out there are built for tourism, which is great in itself, this directory was built for locals,” said Don Stevens, manager of Finger Lakes Connected.

The online directory is a recent addition to an existing e-newsletter, which is emailed weekly to thousands of hungry subscribers. More social media accounts are also being added so advertisers have more opportunities to give exposure to their brand.

Local businesses, including services, wineries, shops, and restaurants can submit their own free listing in the directory and enter any events in the calendar. This can help to build their online presence and quickly grow their customer base.

They also have an option to upgrade their listing and/or advertise specials and discounts to entice consumers. Local businesses can showcase their brand effectively in three ways: the website, e-newsletter, and social media.

The new Finger Lakes Connected program is part of an independent digital marketing agency that was built from the ground up to offer marketing and branding services to local businesses large and small. Local author and digital marketing consultant Don Stevens provides innovative services that create growth for local businesses in the age of technology.
