By Jackie, for Koble –
Koble is thrilled to announce the launch of its web app for Koble 2.0. The web app brings the ability to search for over 11 million companies in 30 categories, to an SMB or corporate buyer’s desktop.
The web app features Koble Pages – smaller than a website and larger than a listing – which are SEO optmized, and allow for businesses to gain unrivaled visibility online. Businesses can now own a company page which is optimized for search engines with Koble Pages, which are free. With nearly half of US small businesses without a website, owning a Koble page makes a website accessible to every SMB, without having any technical know-how.
Koble has already optimized for eight key categories, namely Accounting, Advertising Agencies, Engineering Services, Information Technology, Legal Services, Management Consulting, Market Research and Public Relations. This will progressively lead to increased traffic being driven towards companies that operate within those categories. Any company on the Koble platform is up to five times more likely to be found in a search.
With Koble 2.0, the focus has shifted towards a publicly accessible platform and a mission to drive traffic to companies on that platform. Koble Pages on the web app feature the same aggregated ratings and reviews which you can find on the mobile app. These aggregated ratings and reviews from around the web empower you to start searching and comparing companies before doing business with them. The web app makes it so easy to search by categories, sub categories and by market.
The Koble Chat feature, which allows page visitors to start anonymous conversations with business prospects, will be rolled out in a later release this year. When this feature becomes live, it will show real-time activity updates such as profile views.
Koble has already garnered a string of users, ranging from thousands of SMB owners to Fortune 500 companies like Oracle, IBM and AXA, which use Koble to search for suppliers worldwide. Koble also has an extensive list of companies in Asia already on the platform, numbering in excess of 300,000. This number is expected to grow in tandem with the growth of traffic to Koble pages from Koble’s ongoing SEO efforts.
