SL Pages (UK) LTD has initiated a plan to serve the Sri Lankan community which is increasing annually by launching a business directory aimed at the Sri Lankan community in UK, or anyone who is interested in finding avenues to advertise businesses in this community.
“SL PAGES will develop this market and encourage the entrepreneurial spirit of this Sri Lankan community in UK. The directory will be published in both a paper and an online format. This directory will serve as a key component in bringing together the varied and talented skillset of every member of this community and assisting in the personal and professional of those very members,” the company said in a statement last week.
The United Kingdom is the world’s sixth largest economy. UK has come out of the recession with blooming success and in record breaking speed. There is a growing demand for the comprehensive market network that the UK Sri Lankan community have relied upon for generations. Retaining and sharing this high volume of specialised skills and businesses is in the interest and development of this same community.
The statement noted that SL pages have the expertise to get one to the cyber age of business as well as the conceptual value of the paper directory.
“Next challenge or the feature is going to be the mobile app where you can find the closest Sri Lankan restaurant or the garage when you are in need. If you have any thoughts that can improve the service we are going to offer, please let us know. This is for the Sri Lankan community. We have hundred percent transparency in our operation and very open for any suggestions. Our vision is to support Sri Lankan businesses to grow within our community regardless of location within the UK”.
While SL Pages have their own agenda in more circulation and 85% reach of potential of the target audience, they have blue plans to make turnaround results in the digital space to grow awareness in its own businesses and society.
This will be a tool for Sri Lankan to emerge in to UK business as our target audience covers up third party entrepreneurs who likes to do business within the community. However, SL pages have other services which might not be covered by any other website.
This includes special features that will help the community. Last but not least we are not forgetting the new starters in trade. You can be a handyman, dressmaker or caterer in small scale. This directory will provide an opportunity to voice their skills and interests. This is the opportunity to get your recognition in the society
SL Pages (UK) Ltd has it blue plans already on their drawing boards for an expansion in to the European market. This will certainly bring about more opportunities and expand the network of Sri Lankan globally. This is not ‘just a directory’ SL pages web will connect all the Sri Lankan together around the world with its updates and with an event diary.
