About Me…  My name is Bruce Williamson.

I’m the creator of SupportSWFL.com and a few other sites, podcasts and direct mailings.

I own a small printing business here in SWFL.  Sometimes I get the kids involved and let them earn their keep, but most of the time it’s just me.  So I know what it’s like to wear a few different hats and manage it all.   At the end of the day, I got tired of companies trying to sell overpriced marketing services to small local businesses that don’t have the budget to compete with big box stores and big corporations, and still not see results. 
So. I created some simple cost effective solutions for local businesses owners like you and I. 


And while PRINTING is my main thing, I created SupportSWFL.com and other online resources because that’s the world we live in and it was a way to give back and invest in the community!  I try to keep it simple, and only concentrate on stuff that really works.  Because it’s just me, I have little overhead so I keep my costs down and pass the savings on to you!  In todays small business environment you just need cost effective marketing that works!

If you have any ideas about the site, want to talk business or need any help at all…

*About Our Directory (a semi-technical explanation)

Our community resource website  is an online list or catalog of websites. That is, it is a directory on the World Wide Web of (all or part of) the World Wide Web. Historically, directories typically listed entries on people or businesses, and their contact information; such directories are still in use today. A web directory or what we like to call a community resource website, includes entries about websites, including links to those websites, organized into categories and subcategories. Besides a link, each entry may include the title of the website, and a description of its contents. In most web directories, the entries are about whole websites, rather than individual pages within them (called “deep links”). Websites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories.
There are two ways to find information on the Web: by searching or browsing. Web directories provide links in a structured list to make browsing easier. Many web directories combine searching and browsing by providing a search engine to search the directory. Unlike search engines, which base results on a database of entries gathered automatically by web crawler, most web directories are built manually by human editors. Many web directories allow site owners to submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submissions for fitness.
Web directories may be general in scope, or limited to particular subjects or fields. Entries may be listed for free, or by paid submission (meaning the site owner must pay to have his or her website listed).
