Our Seventh Anniversay - October 2012
Planning for the SavannahCityDirectory.com
website began in 2004. The official launch date was October 2005. The first Savannah Gazette ®
newsletter was published two years later in October of 2007 as part of our Second Anniversary celebration. October is our anniversary month and, traditionally, a special time to not only celebrate, but also to gather our experiences and plan for the future.
We have defined our business model with two objectives
and foremost, to provide a quick and easy informational site about Savannah with listings and articles that would be both interesting and useful.
, to provide a truly low-cost yet effective Internet marketing solution for local businesses and community organizations, as an alternative to traditional advertising (TV, Radio, Newspaper, and Magazines) or to supplement an ongoing marketing strategy.
As a service and added value to our advertisers, we actively market the SavannahCityDirectory.com
website through several avenues. The site is registered with all major search engines and Internet portals, and we use the professional marketing services of Google and Yahoo to attract visitors from the Internet at large. Additionally we are listed on local and regional websites through affiliate links, and we advertise locally with WTOC, Morris Publications, and the Business Journal. We are also active with local business groups and non-profit organizations.
We are proud to report that all three established industry "measures of success" for a commercial website continue to be positive: First, the website visitor numbers have steadily increased, with current statistical reports indicating that several thousand
viewers visit the site regularly
each day. Second, the subscriber list of the Savannah Gazette ®
newsletter has continued to grow, currently at about 10,000. And ongoing support from advertisers and community organizations has increased the marketing accounts numbers.
We appreciate the continued support from our visitors and advertisers and, as always, we welcome all comments, questions, and concerns as we strive to improve our services to the community.
So, what is a Gazette?
A "Gazette" was originally, a newssheet containing an abstract of current events, the forerunner of the modern newspaper. The word is derived from the Italian gazzetta, a name given to informal news or gossip sheets first published in Venice in the mid-16th century. (Some historians speculate that the word originally came from the name of a small copper Venetian coin, the "gazet", because 1 gazet was the cost of one newssheet.) Similar sheets soon made their appearance in France and in England.
The type of gazette originating from the private newsletter existed in England before the middle of the 16th century but was confined mainly to detailed accounts of diplomatic maneuvers. In the 17th century the term was increasingly applied to official government publications, such as the Oxford Gazette (founded 1665), which is considered to be England's first true newspaper. The Oxford later became the London Gazette, which is still published as a court journal, containing records of honours, official appointments, and public notices.
