One of the “Best Promoters of the Flathead”

Vote Tom Heatherington for "Best Promoter of the Flathead" - click here to voteThe 2013 Daily Inter Lake’s annual readers poll named the Flathead Guide (Flathead Valley business Directory) as one of the contenders for the category “Best Promoter of the Flathead“. When the smoke cleared we had earned an “Honorable Mention” (4th. place).

Regretfully, we did not earn the #1 spot, but we had only been in business for about six months and were in contention with local businesses, politicians and popular personalities. All things considered this was a respectable showing, and it didn’t happen by chance.

We leveraged social media, our blog and other marketing resources to get people’s attention and plead our case for votes and it worked.  Promoting local businesses is the core mission of the Flathead Guide, and to have the Daily Inter Lake include us in their annual reader’s poll was gratifying and it proved the value of what we do for our customers.
