Smart phones, local search and social media have become the defining characteristics of the modern consumer. More than ever before consumers are empowered to make better decisions based on the experience of their peers. Business reviews, blogs, forums, tweets and “likes” are a new currency in an age of online commerce. Today’s infographic offers a great explanation of the Social, Local, Mobile (SoLoMo) consumer phenomenon.

Infographic week at N49

Infographics are a great way to present information to a broad audience. They help break down complex data sets into easy to interpret graphic charts. They’re colourful, fun, and way more interesting than a boring old spreadsheet. To demonstrate this we will feature a different infographic related to local search, reputation management and the importance of online reviews, each day this week.

Up first, the evolution of local search results and importance of local content.

N49 Sells Flights.ca

Over the past decade, n49 Interactive has acquired a large and unique portfolio of generic .ca domain names focused on local search in Canada. We have worked hard to develop our network into a suite of sites that leverage our domains by incorporating social networking and consumer reviews.

Sites like Salons.ca, Dining.ca, Kitchens.ca and others, best illustrate what we do: provide relevant local content around many vertical markets. Unfortunately, we just can’t get around to developing all of the domains we own. In some cases a domain no longer fits into our local model and we make the decision to part ways with it. The funds derived from this process helps us to further develop and enhance the n49 network and it’s features. We are kicking things off with the sale of Flights.ca. While we hate to sell such a great domain, we know that it will be in good hands and will get developed into a great site by it’s new owners.

Over the next few weeks we will be selling many more great domains, so if you are interested, let us know! Any questions can be directed to Rick@n49.com. Here is a partial list of domains we are open to selling:

assets.ca
borrow.ca
brides.ca
