New directory for West Coast services available

Local is lekker and in an effort to boost local business Johan Taljaard has started the West Coast Business Card Directory.

Anyone looking for a comprehensive guide to local service need only get a copy of the West Coast Business Card Directory to find everything from plumbers to an internet connection.

“When I started the West Coast Business Card Directory I didn’t have anyone to turn to,” Taljaard said.

“I carried the business on my own. It made me gain the inspiration to bring change to my community and businesses to stand together.”

The directory is a hard-copy booklet filled with local products and services.

The aim it to urge consumers to think and support local entrepreneurs before all else.

He says starting his business “from the bottom up” has lead him to understand local market growth.

“It’s my job to get this product to clients at a reasonable price and spreading it throughout the West Coast, bringing change to local businesses.”

Taljaard says the driving force behind his directory is ultimately to help better the community and boost the West Coast economy.

Also, to act as a guide “to aid local businesses bringing everyone together in growth.” Currently he operates in Langebaan, Saldanha, Vredenburg, St Helena Bay and Velddrif.

Taljaard says unlike advertising booklets, which get binned after a brief page-through, the idea of the West Coast Business Card Directory is for it to be used by locals as a reference.

“The directory is a product to keep close at hand,” he explained.

“So whether you are looking for a place to eat or someone to fix your car, all the information you need is in one place.”

Clients pay a monthly fee to place their business details in the West Coast Business Card Directory. Taljaard says his business is growing steadily and he has branched out to designing and printing of business cards for clients.
