“The Brownstoner Directory has proven to be a great lead generator for my business. For a very modest charge each month, we regularly receive 10-15 quality leads from the Directory. In addition, our sales staff meets customers in the store all the time that learned about us through Brownstoner. I know that we are reaching an audience that would otherwise not know about our business.” — Louis Rutigliano, Classic Tile

“Brownstoner is a great way to connect with my customers. I have received numerous feedback and referrals from their Directory website. My customers believe that Brownstoner is a reliable source to find contractors. They helped me to create a website for my business. Their staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Brownstoner.com.” — Andre Buchanan, A&A Chimney and Fireplace

“Brownstoner’s directory has been an invaluable source of clients for our business. Since listing with Brownstoner more than a year ago we have received dozens of inquiries and landed several jobs through this service. What separates the Brownstoner Directory from other advertising options is that it connects us almost exclusively with clients that expect high quality work, know the difference and are willing to pay for the quality and commitment that this level of product entails. For a very small sum of money Brownstoner’s Directory has landed us some serious clientele.” — Zach Schlossberg, The Loftmen

“I have worked with Brownstoner for almost two years and I continue to see significant new business leads from the directory services. I initially started with a basic listing, but last year I expanded to the enhanced directory with the mini-website and I have seen the lead generation improve significantly. I’m very happy with the value I receiveand the exposure I get from Brownstoner, and its forum community has been very supportive of our business.” — M. Rahman, M. Rahman Contruction

“We are pleased to be renewing our advertising campaign with Brownstoner for this year. I would like to also like to thank Brownstoner for great service and business practices. I find you easy to work with and sensitive to the needs of the customer. Looking forward to another successful year!” — Nadav Mazor, Perfect Renovation

The Brownstoner Directory continues to get fleshed out. Two months after launching, we’re now up to 67 listings. This number includes a dozen mini-sites, which are basically homepages within Brownstoner that enable service providers to include photos, testimonials, contact info, etc. Two new mini-sites launched last week: One for Green Light Expediting and one for longtime Forum advertisier Classic Tile. Check ‘em out. For more details and pricing, click here.

If you haven’t taken a gander, the recently launched Directory now has 38 companies in it, ranging from architects to real estate lawyers to landscapers to contractors. We’d like to give an especially big thanks to those service providers who’ve been among the first to sign up for their own Brownstoner mini-sites:
+ AllRenovation [General Contractor]
+ Gateway Plumbing & Heating [Plumber]
+ Stan Gelber and Sons [HVAC]
+ Madison Estates [Real Estate Broker]
+ Movers Not Shakers [Movers]
+ Nemo Tile [Tiles]
+ Perfect Renovation [General Contractor]
+ Transcend Construction [General Contractor]

If you have a small business in the New York area that you think would benefit from the exposure to Brownstoner.com’s 150,000 monthly readers, shoot us an email or learn more about the Directory here.

Today’s a big day around here, as we launch the new Brownstoner Directory (along with a new Navigation Bar along the top of the page). The Directory is a new search-driven resource for Brownstoner readers looking to find everything from contractors to architects to brokers to lawyers, and for those service providers to reach the most active and affluent group of homeowners, renovators and house hunters in the tri-state area. We’ve got more than a dozen businesses signed up pre-launch to flesh out the look and feel of the new paid feature but now we need the help of the Brownstoner community to take it to critical mass: If you have worked with any high-quality and trustworthy service providers in recent years (anywhere in the New York area—not just Brooklyn!), please spread the word! Folks who sign up before October 15 get to take advantage of the introductory pricing. In addition to a basic listing in the directory, companies can also sign up for enhanced listings with mini-sites, which are basically their own homepages within Brownstoner.com; for example, take a look at the Nemo Tile minisite. Interested parties can learn more about joining the Directory here. Thanks!
