Welcome to SUX HIVE, Siouxlanders. Your place for small business listings. You will find that this is an easy to browse and appealing site for business owners and shoppers alike.
We hope to make marketing for Siouxland's small businesses easier to get noticed and attract new customers. As for shoppers, we hope to introduce you to new shops and establishments that might not be obvious at first glance. Enjoy trying new things and see what is available here in Sioux City and the surrounding areas.
SUX HIVE was established because of a need...for small businesses and home-based entrepreneurs to get noticed without breaking the bank and have a go-to place to advertise their business. In the last year, I have seen many businesses close due to lack of marketing. Besides getting a website, they relied on age-old tactic of passing the word about their business through word-of-mouth. While this marketing still works, in this day and age, we need to do more.
And there are a lot more choices, hence why some give up. Between Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, and all sorts of social media choices, we get overwhelmed and exhausted just trying to keep up with all these marketing tools. So where do we start and what to focus on? That's what we are going to focus on here on SUX HIVE.
Now, at the moment, we have some choices of services here. You can list your business under our business listings, put the spotlight on your business here on our blog, or advertise your events and deals going on. These services are open for the small businesses and home-based entrepreneurs here in the Siouxland area.
As a shopper, you can enjoy the new experiences and the ease of looking for local businesses for when the need comes up. Our listing categories are aimed to help you find the quaint, little mom-and-pop shops around the corner. This will give you more choices besides the obvious places to go to. Who knows? Maybe in the process, you meet new friends and grow closer as a community.
To get started, browse our listings and check it out for yourself. You have a suggestion for a business to list? Read all about our services first, then fill out our contact form. For listings, we will just go ahead and add it on. For business spotlights and advertisements, we will get back to you for details on your custom services.
We are looking forward to creating a community that helps small businesses and shoppers alike. Enjoy!
