Kualika Business Directory – An African Footprint
South Africa has seen the launch of a new business directory, Kualika (www.kualika.co.za) on 01 March 2019, founded by two young individuals.
Who are we?
“The name is Taken from the Swahili word Kukualika, which means inviting you. The founders of this website are looking to invite less established business owners to engage and invite a greater community. This is a business. The primary focus is to allow patrons who are looking to purchase from local producers/sellers an easier means of access to the producers/sellers, helping businesses to expand their reach and become more reputable.”
What do we offer?
A website that enables its users to locate businesses that are known only to locals. This will make businesses grow their consumer base and for the business to know what clients think about their products.
What is a business directory?
A business directory is a website or printed listing of information which lists businesses within niche based categories. Businesses can be categorized by niche, location, activity, or size. Business may be compiled either manually or through an automated online search software. Online yellow pages are a type of business directory, as is the traditional phone book.
The details provided in a business directory may vary. They may include the business name, addresses, telephone numbers, location, contact information, type of service or products the business provides, the number of employees, the served region and any professional associations. Some directories include a section for user reviews, comments, and feedback. Business directories in the past would take a printed format but have recently been upgraded to websites due to the advent of the internet.
Many business directories offer complimentary listings in addition to the premium options. There are many business directories and some of these have moved over to the internet and away from printed format. Whilst not being search engines, business directories often have a search function, enabling users to search businesses by Zip Code, country, state, area or city.
