Description

Echucaweb.com.au has since March 2001 provided listings for business and community enterprises based in Echuca Moama and surrounding regions, to promote our facilities and services to locals and visitors.

Echucaweb is not a free listing service.  Non-profit Community entities can receive a free listing.  Profit and Not-for-Profit entities are encouraged to purchase a low-cost annual listing.

Concept

The initial concept in June 2000 and subsequent site launch in March 2001 grew from frustration with out-of-date phone books when urgently requiring a tradesperson.  When new to the area it is difficiult to know what business and community facilities / services are available.  It was evident that other new arrivals to Echuca and Moama could be in the same predicument.

Rapid growth in Echuca and Moama has seen many new enterprises and venture startups creating the need for constant listing reviews, and updates of this site.  Echucaweb.com.au is a dynamic directory with new and revised listings added regularly.

The cost of an annual active listing has been deliberately kept low so that every enterprise can afford to get involved. Echucaweb's aim has always been to promote truely 'local' enterprise support, and change spending habits.


Objective

Provide cost effective listings for Echuca Moama and surrounding region enterprises to promote facilities and services to locals and visitors.
