Local Business Owners Play a Key Role in Helping Communities After Disaster

by PRC Agency PR

As Hurricane Harvey reaps havoc up and down the Texas coast, one local business directory expert is advising the local business owners in the area to do all they can to help alleviate some of the pain.

“I understand that the local shop and restaurant owners along the Texas coast have a lot to deal with on their own, but they can also play a key role in the recovery of their towns and cities,” says a spokesman from FindUsLocal.com, an online local business directory that uses GEO location technology to automatically track a visitor’s location and then display a home page customized to that area,” he says. “The idea is simple. Local shop and restaurant owners should first make their presence known to the community by making sure they are listed on a local business directory. People will only have their smartphones to find what they need to secure their houses and find local, hot food.”

And he’s right. In most of the hardest hit cities up and down the Texas coastline, people are without power and don’t have access to their computers or personal records. That means if businesses can’t be found on a smart phone, people won’t be able to find what they need

“In addition to that,” he says. “Local business owners should keep the lines of communication open with the residents of their town or city. They can use our comments feature for free on our local business directory to announce the arrival of much needed supplies or anything else that will help.”

Apparently, FindUsLocal.com is one of the only local business directories that allow local business owners to leave comments and to invite others to comment right on their business listing. A useful real time comment feature like that can be a powerful business tool for any local business to employ as soon as possible. One other great thing, it is also free.

“We all need to come together in this and do what we can for the others in our community,” he says. “And the local business owners who do what they can now will be remembered fondly by residents in the years to come.”
