PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — Portsmouth Press, a community website in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, announces the addition of new sale tools for local businesses and consumers.
“We are very excited to announce these new features, which gives more options for area businesses,” said Portsmouth Press (PortsmouthPress.com) Owner and Publisher Sandy McGee. “The new tools give businesses without websites, or without the time to manage social media accounts, a direct way to reach and sell to consumers.”
As of Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019, businesses, organizations, and individuals can list their services, products, events, and more for free on PortsmouthPress.com. The new Listing option gives sellers the opportunity to sell directly on the website and share the Listing on social media.
“There are so many new options for businesses and organizations,” said McGee. “Restaurants can add menus and photos. Event organizers can sell tickets. Home owners can add rental opportunities. The options are endless!”
With the new tools, customers can purchase directly on the website by using either a PayPal account or credit card. Payments are issued to Listing owners every two weeks.
“It’s a win-win for local businesses and consumers,” said McGee. “It’s especially ideal for local, small businesses looking to target online shoppers without investing time and money in creating their own website.”
Besides the new Listing option, consumers can also add reviews and share listings on social media (giving businesses more advertising).
The new additions to Portsmouth Press also include:
- A complete redesign of the website;
- Added map of local listings;
- Updated commenting option on posts;
- Added profile features;
- New logo;
- New share options on news articles.
Portsmouth Press will continue to offer daily news and newsletters.
“Nothing is changing when it comes to our news department,” said McGee. “We will continue to offer local news for the Portsmouth community.”
