Diggit Helps Canadian Businesses by embracing the Power of Local

diggitCheck out the recent press in TechVibes that ICMA member,  Semadic Interactive Technologies has received on their newest classifieds site Diggit.

Co-Founder of Diggit and ICMA Board Member, Tish Hill, shares that Diggit has further evolved away from pure classifieds to a new COMBINATION of TRUST+LOCAL+CURATED CONTENT+COMMERCE.

“We have local classifieds listings alongside our increasing number of local stores with online/mobile transaction capability.  Some of our local stores are even selling food online!” stated Tish.    She also informed ICMA that they will have online registration for classes & workshops starting in August 2013, which is a new source of revenue in that they take a fee for all these transactions.

Given the announcement of Jeff Bezos’ acquisition of the Washington Post – maybe combining content (national or local) with commerce is the way of the future?!
