New business search engine creates awareness about heritage
Officially launched yesterday, Maltaquicksearch.com is a new online business search engine focusing on Maltese business needs first and foremost, offering Maltese customers the ability to search for a particular service, product, attraction or organisation by keyword search, location or category by means of access to Facebook and smartphones.
The site will create awareness about Maltese history by producing interesting features about the vast Maltese heritage. The first of such awareness-building themes both on the site itself and on Facebook will be dedicated to Fort St Angelo and will be raising interest by opening discussion on controversies surrounding the fort in Birgu revolving around its original construction date, which is still unknown, and the possible Egyptian link due to the pink granite column found at the top part of the fort. Information will be posted on the site daily in the coming weeks.
“Maltese culture is not only vast but also intriguing and we are inviting businesses to be featured on our website and help increase awareness about our heritage. One of the best ways to promote a business is to feature it where customers look for information. For this reason, local businesses are being offered a free three-month listing which will include a full article and photos. Just by visiting www.maltaquicksearch.com, customers will be able to decide if a particular product meets their requirements,” a spokesperson for the company said during its launch.
“This website has already established a huge Facebook presence and is also being promoted quite aggressively online. In the coming days, it will be advertised on all newspapers and TV stations,” continued the spokesperson.
The website features consumer reviews. Customers of a particular service will be able to rate and write about their experiences with a particular vendor, meaning that businesses offering good customer care and after-sales service will benefit from word of mouth marketing and reputation management. Using this social media tool, businesses will also be given the opportunity to reply and rectify any negative reviews if necessary.
