Our concept of providing the consumer with one place for all their local information needs makes OttawaValleyGuide.ca one of the most sought after mediums for Internet advertising.

However, our audience is provided with a feast of information, which meets the needs of the ever-growing numbers of Internet users that demand current local information. It is this format of OttawaValleyGuide.ca that brings the user and the advertiser together which develops customer loyalty.

Only recently have many businesses realized the purchase incentive by providing the consumer with Interact access. It is no longer a question of whether or not to provide Interact access. The same holds true with regard to Internet advertising. More and more of today’s business people realize the urgency of establishing their presence on the Internet. With approximately 13 million users in Canada regularly using the Internet, spending an average of 10 hours a week on-line the opportunity for promotion is great.

With entertainment, current local information, product information, news and travel being the five most sought after areas by Internet users, OttawaValleyGuide.ca is in the forefront providing the consumer with the information that matters.
