The Neighborhood Watch - Community News Sites
Owned in part by Fisher, Datasphere’s roster of media-company clients has grown from 90 to 136 in just the last year.
Like Wildernest, many local businesses put great value on advertising via these sites. Among them is Steve Gechlik, who advertises his Sunshine Carpet Cleaning in Tucson, Ariz., on site Downtown Tucson. After Datasphere helped Gechlik create how-to videos for the site, “I got 20 more calls a week,” he says. “You can imagine how my business grew after that,” adding, “I’ve actually lost time playing golf because I’ve had to work.”
