Business Directory – The way it was intended to be

What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea. Resilient… highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed – fully understood – that sticks; right in there somewhere. – Cobb in the movie Inception.

Business directories are good! As a business owner or service provider, they help you in being discovered by your customers. The consumers and other businesses often search business directories to find services or products they need. Especially, if they are looking for an unusual product or service that you offer. Of late, the leading business directories have spun a business model where the ones paying most are favored. This often defeats the purpose of a business directory because the customers find it harder to locate the most economical and appropriate vendors.

Here, at Attosol Technologies, we’ve created a platform called www.attotags.com that serves multiple purposes. The idea here is to be the most honest proximity based business listing that exists! At the same time, we want to create an advertising platform for our vendors. You can release offers, coupons and ads in minutes using our platform.

As a vendor, you must be already aware of the high costs of marketing and advertising. We aim to deliver a platform where you can create advertisement on your own in few easy steps. The customers at Attotags, are not spammed by ads and offers. Instead, they are given a choice to search for the ads and offers they are interested in. They are also informed based on their need about the services and offers they are looking for.

Attotags is our first venture and we dream about bringing a paradigm shift in the way advertisement is created by businesses and consumed by common audience. Ambitious? Yes. Effective? Perhaps.

We are working hard to create a platform that:

  • is within the reach of a common man
  • is easier to use and shows nearest results first or based on the area you choose
  • would allow people to market themselves without burning a big hole in their pocket
  • anyone with the knowledge of operating a smartphone or computer can use
  • any business person or service provider could use to evangelise their products or services
  • is honest and provides a level playing field for every business out there

A Utopia Called Honest Business Directory

Money and ethics is a match made in hell! Most business directories start for a good cause, but probably the pressure for revenue generation eventually leads to the corrosion of real good value that you get out of an honest business directory. Soon enough, only people who pay are listed on top, and as an end-user you lose. There is no harm in showing you the richest service provider. The real harm lies in the fact that you are not aware of the other alternatives, who could’ve done the job better, faster and probably cheaper, but they never got a chance.

To elaborate, when you want to find a plumber, you might not necessarily find the average plumber who lives in the next lane. Instead you get to see “THE Plumber Contractor” who is most likely a paid customer listed on top followed by others fighting for the same spot. You get swayed by the reviews, and you ask for service. But did you get the real bang for your bucks?

Our Business Listing Story

At Attotags we are trying to build the most honest business directory that exists. There is no concept of “get paid to be listed on top”. You can be the best and you will automatically rise to the top. But then, not everyone can be the best or wants the best. Right? Often the customers want to get the work done by the person who is closest, can serve them quickest and probably cheapest. As far as you have a product or service to sell, we would be more than happy to have you here and connect you to your potential customers.

We like to keep things simple. You can allow us to locate you automatically or choose an area from where you want to search. We promise to give you all the information we have about the providers in that area. That’s our utopian target, and we know it is easier said than done. We need your help, and you can help easily by enrolling the folks who you think do good work and struggle because of lack of funds. It is an easy process, free and it will be great if the technically challenged folks get helped by generous folks like yourselves who are reading this post!

You might ask, “why so generous?”. You might also say, “if you are good at something, never do it for free”.

And honest as we are, we will admit that the service is not completely free. But compared to our competition, we are priced at 10% or less and will still be making just enough to keep the developers happy… provided customers come on-board along with the vendors! We don’t charge any commission for any sale you make, and we promise to remain honest… come what may!

We work like ants, and don’t need to be managed as much. We have an extremely flat hierarchy. Everybody is a worker and we keep overheads (some like to call them managers) to the minimum. We need to run the show, and to do it we need resources. A hungry coder cannot change the world, but a well fed one, just might! Here is what you can do to help us:

  • by registering your establishment, or
  • by registering others who don’t know how to, or
  • by spreading the word, or
  • by funding us directly

Every bit of your support counts and we thank you for giving us your attention.
