The local business directory with more than just t

Philip Molden Jun 4 2008

What's the point of a business directory with just names, addresses and telephone numbers? It's all well and good when you need to find the number for your local Chinese takeaway but for the more important decisions such as finding a decent MOT garage or trusted painter and decorator you're expected to pick one and hope that it turns out for the best.

eBay trading has literally transformed the way that people do business online by including feedback which has helped consumers to understand the importance of recommendations. The Disc Directory has built on this idea and created an extensive local business directory that helps people to highlight a business or service through the strength of its recommendations. And it only gets better, as the more people using these businesses start to leave their own recommendations they create the ideal marketplace for both consumers and businesses.

The Disc Directory is the first distributed directory to have ever achieved Buy With Confidence Buy With Confidence which means that those dealing with the directory can rest assured that the company behind it has been vetted and approved by Trading Standards. Any negative feedback received about a company doesn't go onto the website but is forwarded to the respective business, however if the complaint is of a more serious nature it is passed on to Trading Standards and the business is suspended from the directory.

Of the 30,000 plus businesses already on the directory many are generating business through the recommendations left about them. Recommendations also serve as a powerful businesses tool when marketing themselves to potential customers who nowadays expect to make a decision based on more than a brochure or glossy advert.

The Disc Directory currently covers Portsmouth and Southampton and is soon launching throughout Bournemouth, Reading, Brighton and Gatwick.

Look out for it, coming to a town near you.
