Feature Number Four: Business Locator
For wine producers, the web presents a very unique opportunity. Certainly, the goal of tipping the scales in favor of direct-to-consumer is at the top of the list for most when optimizing a website. However, if you sell your wines through retail channels, then you know the value of your website in reaching those retail customers or “controlling the message” so to speak. Just like your direct customers, retail customers will often visit your website for information before making a purchase, whether in a retail store or in a restaurant while looking at a wine list.
The business locator is a great tool for customers who would prefer to buy your wine locally. Customers either select a state and city from a drop down, or enter their zip code and select a search radius. The store locator will display a list of stores or restaurants that carry your wines, complete with a Google map.
