New Social Media Benefits & Simpler Subscriptions

We understand that social media plays a big part in the marketing mix of most businesses, perhaps, no more so than with small, local businesses. These businesses, like so many here on McHenry Life, don’t have big social media marketing budgets. Most probably don’t have a dedicated specialist in their company nor do they work with an agency. They handle this on their own, with whatever time they can put toward it.

Social Media Profile Links

We can’t lighten that burden, but going forward, hopefully, we’ll help you get even more out of your social media efforts. Our primary goal for those who add their listing to McHenry Life is to contribute toward your marketing goals. And one of the key ways we can do that is to help flow interested users through McHenry Life to you.

That’s why we provided a link from your listing to your website, no matter what listing subscription package you chose, even the Basic “Forever Free” one. Going forward, we’ve opened up the Social Media Profile links to all subscription packages as well, not just paid subscriptions!

Yes, even the Basic “Forever Free” one!

So now we can help you connect with people where they are. Ultimately we want to help get them to your website, but these other venues may be just as important to you and we don’t want the type of listing subscription you have to stand in the way.

Existing Lifer Member Listings

If you already have a McHenry Life listing, then be sure to log in to your Member Profile page and edit your listing to add your social media profile links.

While you are at it, review all of the other 30+ details we allow all listings to include to make sure that you are providing as much information about your business, organization, nonprofit, event, or real estate listing as you possibly can…you never know what may be important to a potential customer!

New Lifer Member Listings

If you haven’t become a member yet (don’t worry, it’s still free), or if you are but you haven’t added your (or claimed a listing we’ve already added) listing yet, there’s no better time than now! Most listings can be added in about 5 minutes.

Here are some overviews of Top 9 Reasons to Add Your Event to McHenry Life and Top 9 Reasons to Claim Your Free Business Listing. And for full details, see the Listing Pricing & Features page.

Simplified Listing Subscriptions

We also simplified our listing subscriptions for all listing types.

Instead of 4 listing subscription packages, one free and three paid, we’ve dropped the lowest paid subscription. Now there is the Basic “Forever Free,” the Enhanced, and the Premier listing subscriptions. These are all available across all sections: Directory, Events, and Real Estate.

We hope this simplifies things and continues to deliver the best value in marketing your business around. For full details, see the Listing Pricing & Features page.

EXTRA Add-On Bonus

After announcing these, we also went back and increased the number of characters for your listing Story from 400 to 700! So now you have even more opportunity to tell your unique story through McHenry Life.

My hope for McHenry Life is to create a resource and destination for the residents and businesses of McHenry County alike. A place where residents can discover new places to explore, fun events and ways to spend time, and then share those experiences with others. A place where businesses can connect with existing and potential customers, and not simply market their businesses, but share their own unique stories.
