What is "The Community Compass"?

Finally an effective system for Main Street, USA to harness the power of the Internet.  A Virtual Town is an interactive website featuring all what a town, neighborhood or community has to offer to both its people and around the world. 

With over 85% of the people using the Internet to find things, any form of web presence would be ideal. “United We Stand, Divided We Fall” is even more true in the Internet, your website alone in Hyper-space is just like a tiny star in Outer-space. Where is it really? how can people find it? The chances for your website or business to be found is much greater when you are part of a larger cause.

Take for example: "We are a recycling company, we recycle and dispose computer equipment and parts. We have been in Methuen, MA for over 10 years yet we only have 2 customers from Methuen." We ask, What's wrong with this picture?
It turns out that most residents and companies don't  exactly know what's in or around them. Not to their fault:

  • the telephone book is no longer used
  • the pay per click search engines are only interested to collect the highest fees
  • Small businesses cannot afford it
  • Organic searches are dominated by the big yellow books

The Community Compass capitalizes on the strengths, and benefits from all its participants to entertain, engage and direct visitors to your place of business. Your only competition is what’s in your town.
