Finder411, The People’s Platform, gains momentum for Spring Launch

Premium Basic ProfileFinder411 is being built as “the people’s platform”, an online community and resource directory exclusively where those who care about the hyper-local movement can find needed and sought after small businesses.  Ones that add variety, fun, and ease to their lives.

As we steamroll towards a Triangle, NC spring launch, we recently sent out Finder411’s latest profile page mockups and a survey to gauge people’s taste’s on what they thought and how they might engage with our site.  Here’s what some people had to say:

  • 70% of respondents said they’d have no problem logging in with Facebook (in fact 1 wanted to log in with Twitter), and understood the value of having their own profile to save and share their favorite small businesses.
  • 100% of respondents found the site’s pictures engaging versus distracting.
  • One person commented:  I’d love love love more pictures!

Premium Plus ProfileWhile pictures are one of the biggest features that set Finder411 apart from other big name “online directories”, one person commented, “the pictures appeared dead and not vibrant enough to help in stimulating business.”

We certainly get that and will do our best when we launch to include more pictures of people engaged with the business whenever possible to illicit more engagement.
