CitySquares was founded in 2005 based on the simple premise that finding local, neighborhood businesses online is really hard and very frustrating. Furthermore, small businesses are being challenged every day to keep up with the Joneses. Until recently, they had very little chance to compete with national advertisers for consumer attention. So, CitySquares provides small, independent businesses an opportunity to reach a qualified, local consumer audience through a profile on it’s highly trafficked, consumer-facing website. CitySquares provides its content to users in a hyper-local context, that is, neighborhoods and other relevant localities.
Local businesses are able to take full advantage our search-friendly information architecture and fully customize and personalize their CitySquares.com advertising campaigns through enhanced business profiles, display advertising, videos and more. All of this is provided to the customer without complex variable pricing.
