WebVisible In Big Win With Newspaper Publisher McClatchy
Irvine-based WebVisible, the online small business marketing service headed by Kirsten Mangers, has inked a major deal with newspaper publisher The McClatchy Company. According to The McClatchy Company and WebVisible, they are on an "aggressive" roll out of WebVisible's online marketing platform to every McClatchy U.S. market by the end of the year. The firms said the deal will provide McClatchy's local advertisers with additional ways to get their businesses found. WebVisible had been working with McClatchy in a number of local markets prior to the expansion. The companies said that advertising sales in March were roughly five times higher than the prior month, after implementing WebVisible's products and services. WebVisible helps small and local businesses place online advertising and search engine marketing advertisements.
