Free Veteran Owned Business Directory Now Surpasses 4000 Members
We are very proud to state that VeteranOwnedBusiness.com has now surpassed 4,000 business profiles. Since going live on Veteran’s Day 2008, VeteranOwnedBusiness.com has now added and approved over 4,000 businesses owned by veterans, active duty military, reservists and service disabled veterans of the United States Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, National Guard and Coast Guard.
True from the very first day we launched VeteranOwnedBusiness.com… there is still absolutely no cost to list a business and there is absolutely no cost to search for a business! We have received numerous phone calls (some days more than 200 calls in a day) and thousands of emails of praise from proud Americans from all over the world thanking us and letting us know they’ve used VeteranOwnedBusiness.com to find a business. We’ve also received a ton of calls and emails from businesses listed letting us know how much they appreciate their membership and how their free listing has helped them bring in business–and for many–help keep their doors open during these very trying economic times.
Other notable achievements:
- Nearly 7 million (7,000,000) pages viewed since going live on Veteran’s Day 2008
- Nearly 6 hundred thousand (600,000) visitors since going live
- Have nearly 200 profiles of non profits who directly help veterans, active duty military and their respective families
- Have received several testimonials (some on company letterhead) from members who told us their business profile has brought in at least one customer/client.
Our entire staff continues to work hard to further the development of VeteranOwnedBusiness.com. We have many new features and functionalities planned for release in the 2nd half of 2010. One of our biggest goals is to continue to grow our veteran owned business directory by reaching our goal of 5,000 businesses profiled by the end of 2010. Having added over 500 new, free members in a little over a month puts us far ahead of this goal of reaching 5,000 by year’s end.
We know we have miles to go as far as having some of the development work done; however, our goal all along has been to create a comprehensive, user friendly place for procurement people, prime contractors, fellow veteran owned businesses and of course the every day consumer to go to easily find and conduct business with businesses owned by our country’s military heroes! Because this number has grown so rapidly, we have actually had to spend more time on the sign up area than other areas. Please be patient as we continue to work toward an even more comprehensive directory.
