I quickly want to let you know that the Dayboro Business Directory is updated with the new listings. It should match the Lions paper copy. 

In case you forgot this is the only directory that is the Dayboro Business Directory, it is a lions initiative in promoting local businesses.  The long history can be found here. 

We promised to keep the directory up to date, so Dugi and myself been working on that to get that happening.  (Thanks Dugi). 

Please support the local businesses, remember that we only will miss them when they are gone… and when gone… who will sponsor our sporting events???? You?

What is it with the views on Dayboro Directory?

When browsing through the Dayboro Directory site, people click on the adverts, logos and links. We keep track of that, each time someone clicks on your advert in the online directory, the views counter goes up.

The views do not necessarily mean that they are all humans, although the majority will be, it means that your advertisement was hit, opened and viewed. Viewing can be a robot or a search engine that indexes the website.

What are Search robots, you speak of?

Search robots, also known as bots, wanderers, spiders, and crawlers, are the tools many web indexing engines, such as Google Bing , and Yahoo! , use to build their databases. 

Most robots work like web browsers, except they don’t require user interaction. Robots access web pages, often using links to locate and link to other sites. They can index titles, summaries, or the entire contents of documents much more quickly and thoroughly than a human could.

So it is only views by robots?

NO, it is NOT, there is a percentage that can be robots. The majority is actual people looking at your directory listing. On an average there be around 300 users people who visit the Dayboro Directory Website, some might just come there and go OOPS wrong site. The majority is coming to the site with the purpose to find information.

How do we know that? We know that by bounce rate and the time spend on the site. The bounce rate for the site is about 48% which means more than half of the visitor’s search look and read the adverts. They spend an average of 10 – 30 minutes on the site. Articles like this help towards that time spend on the site.

Have a look at one of our PREMIUM listings

Lyhart Fabrication and Fencing are one of your PREMIUM directory listings. The premium listings generally have a full page in the Printed Version of the Dayboro and surround directory. They pay extra for having a premium position and listing in the on-line version.

Their advert is tuned for search engines, as part of the premium listing we do high-level SEO for that single advertisement. The business listing is submitted more favourable to the search engines like google and the like, than the other listings.

At the time of writing the Lyhart Fabrication and Fencing listing had 2425 views.

Opening Hours for a business is now added to their listings. 

It goes to show that advertising with the Lions Dayboro and District Business Directory is a worthwhile investment. We constantly improve on how we present your business information. 

Opening Hours

Opening Hours are generally those hours during which a dayboro business or organisation is open for customer or visitors. A lot of businesses in dayboro are “home-based” businesses. This means that they have their place of business at home. 

Typical examples are: 

For those businesses that have a “brick and mortar” business in town, you will find opening hours useful. 

Where do I find the opening hours in the listing?

They show different depending what device you are using, we adjust the listing presentation based upon Desktop, Tablet and Mobile device.

The opening hours for the business show-up beside the business logo, you quickly can see if you should call the business.

Opening hours shown on the Mobile Device.

A mobile device is typically smaller and has less “real-estate” to put stuff on, for that reason we re-organise the information in a more scroll down version. 

The good thing with the Mobile device is that you have Click to Call

When your open is IMPORTANT to your customers.

Today’s marketplace is more competitive than ever, and it’s far too easy for even the most loyal client to be enticed away by your competitors.

By maintaining regular contact, you will make your clients feel valued and maximise return business, for this reason, they need to know what times your business is open-for-business.

The cornerstone for keeping your customers and getting new clients is ensuring they do not get an answering service, engage tone or even worse drive to your business and find the doors locked.

As mentioned, it does not take much to lose a customer; gaining new customers is more expensive and takes more effort than maintaining the relationship with existing customers.

Local producers to REKO

Dayboro REKO ring
REKO Dayboro

Over the years several of us have promoted local vendors and in particular local producers of excellent and honest food. There were a few attempts to connect vendors with customers and suggestions for a community garden was raised (more on that later). 

As with all good ideas and local companies, they need driving and energetic people to make it happen. But more so they need support from the local community. Jackson Produce is one example that comes to mind. A local Dayboro based chap started an order and collect fruit and veggies box. Some might remember, unfortunately, over time, customers dwindled, and as it happens, he had to close up shop. 

Now with the CoVid-19 scenario, it becomes clear that we need a shorter supply chain. More so need to support the local vendors and producers.

Let me introduce REKO Ring Dayboro, you can check pickup times at the Dayboro Events website. (note this is only relevant if you ordered online).

But first.

REKO (Responsible Consumption in Swedish) is a farmers market – online. It is pretty well explained by the author of The Prying Mantis. In short it is a Do It Yourself direct sales.

From their page: 
Reko stands for ‘Fair Consumption’ and is a trade model originally created in Finland. In short, it is a Facebook-based pre-ordering system for local products. Imagine being able to shop a variety of fresh, local and ethical produce from the comfort of your own home without having to deal with the messy hustle and bustle of stores or markets, whilst supporting small-scale producers in your community?

Dayboro REKO ring.

Dayboro REKO ring

REKO Ring Dayboro is an online farmers market where you can source local products, pay the producers directly, and collect your goodies from the Railway st carpark on Saturdays from 11am to 12pm. Some guidelines about how to conduct your purchases will be posted here soon.

The driving force behind it here in Dayboro  are the admins of the group. You can see their names there. 

The first pickup was on Saturday 30th May 2020 and from what I heard… it was AWESOME. Personally I am very excited and hope it will continue. It takes place every Saturday.

How does it work?

I think this is how it works. 

  1. You subscribe to the Facebook group.
  2. keep an eye out for new postings on this group. The Vendors will constantly update what they got. 
  3. Order, this is done by contacting the Vendor agree upon payment method and what you order. 
  4. Pick-Up. this is the fun part. Collect your fresh and locally produced food.
How Reco Dayboro Works

The FUN part is, you can make it a morning out. Wander through Dayboro support the local shops.

Why this post?

Back in March, there was a call for Local Producers to register food for sale and/or swap. REKO Ring Dayboro has risen to the occasion and provided a way better solution/option for shortening the supply chain. 

It goes without saying that the call for local producers is still there, it should be funneled through REKO Dayboro.

It goes without saying that decentralisation is KEY to good food and sustainable living.

Facebook groups now added to directory

Dayboro Facebook Groups

We added Facebook Groups that focus on Dayboro. It is an interesting list to say the least.

Lets look at what a facebook group is and why you might not be able to see it’s content. 

Facebook groups, what is it?

A Facebook group is a page created for an organization or business to promote activities. Users can join the group and post their thoughts on a wall and interact through discussion threads. 

While Facebook groups were the main way for businesses to bring users together and have discussions for many years, the introduction of fan pages (which later became “like” pages) in 2007 changed this. Though similar, groups and pages offer businesses and organizations different ways of reaching their audience. 

Mainly, fan pages have the advantage of being able to display information directly into their fans’ news feeds, while groups cannot. Pages also tend to have higher Search Engine Optimization (SEO) opportunities than groups. Groups, however, have the ability to message their members, as well as restrict who can and cannot join.

Why can't I see the facebook group.

That might because the way the group is setup, as Facebook describes it. 

If you’re a member of a group, you can learn more about how to check the privacy level of your group and whether your group is visible in search and other places on Facebook.
If you’re an admin of a group, you can learn more about how to change the privacy level of your group and manage whether people who aren’t in your group can find your group in search and other places on Facebook.

Dayboro Directory LOGO Update

The old Dayboro Directory Logo

Lions Business Districts Directory Logo

The original Dayboro Directory Logo was taken from the paper based Dayboro and Districts business directory. We figured, as the website matures, we should update the logo…. 

Dayboro and Districts logo for the paper based copy was made by North Pine Printing. Visit them as they are long term supporters and help to make the paper base copy possible. 

The NEW Dayboro Directory Logo

We try to make it POP… the logo for the ON-LINE directory is made by HELP4BIS owner Danielle Latta. HELP4BIS is providing the ongoing support, design, hosting, domain registration and overall management for FREE.

Click to Call

Click To Call

What is Click To Call

The definition of click-to-call (which is sometimes called click-to-talk, or click-to-text) refers to a type of digital communication in which a person clicks a button or text in order to be connected with another individual in real-time.

 

We added Click to Call to the mobile pages of the Dayboro Directory CoVid Take Away listings. We are a bit cautious about our PAYING customers. The paying customers are those who paid for the advertising in the paper-based Dayboro and Surrounds phone directory.

So PLEASE visit them first.

After the CoVid-19 we will turn everything back to normal, for now it is survival of the local businesses hence we doing a little bit extra for those business that rely on patronage and those who are still “allowed” to be trading.

Now that is of our chest (it is only a small chest), let’s introduce to you CLICK TO CALL

To make it even easier, you now can click on the button Click To Call and you will be connected to the business of choice. No you still have to pay for the call charges :-).

This works only on mobile phones, and will only show on mobile phones.

We hope you like it.
