One of the pieces of feedback we've gotten is, "Please tell more people that you exist!" We've been focusing on building our site and haven't done much marketing -- but that's changing, starting today.
Our first major attempt at getting the word out is advertisements in train cars on Chicago public transit. Starting today, riders in select cars on the Red and Brown Lines will see ads encouraging people to check out EveryBlock. Paul from our team coincidentally noticed one on his way to the office this morning:
We've also got a larger, poster-style ad on the platform at the 47th St. station on the Green Line. Both ads were designed by talented local designer Krista Seidl.
We've got a couple other ideas in the pipeline, so if you're one of those people who is asking us to get our name out there, know that we're working on it. And, of course, you can help us out by spreading the word to your friends and neighbors!
