directory9 was founded for a need to provide a high-quality listing site at an affordable price that offers many other add-ons that would increase your search engine results without having to spend lots of money with search engine services, SEO marketing agencies, etc...
Aaron Broderick, the founder and owner of directory9 felt trapped when starting to do online marketing for his other businesses and decided to research other ways to get the same results without paying huge sums of money that is ongoing. What Aaron found was that a well-designed-and-managed directory with extra marketing tools and SEO options that can give the same results at a fraction of the cost compared to other means.
After the exciting discovery, Aaron decided to provide such a service to share with others, so everyone can benefit from it by adding value and credibility to their own business and saving money at the same time.
We have a passion to get you seen online without having to sell yourself out.
