What is CRESTON 1?

We are a locally-produced directory of connections to resources, products, services and opportunities in the Creston Valley area, from Crawford Bay to Yahk.  And so much more!

Creston Valley Visitor Centre

It's All Here!

Every active business is presented here, and while some may have enhanced presence, all have web-links and/or phone numbers where available. No frustration and maximum utility for users.

Made for everyone...

We use modern responsive design for any device, from desktop to smartphone.  Clean and compact...

Creston1 Rocks...

We grouped the site's AUDIENCE-SECTOR directory content by its most common target markets to keep the category scope manageable.
If you'd rather see everything as a LIST, we do have all of the local entries available (with additional features too) in our ALL RECORDS view.  

Our small-town approach ensures that featured participants are given optimum exposure by placing them close to their particular category ("context-proximate-placement"). We also provide a separate showcase of our site supporters.

Compared to us, other directory models seem hollow, usually with little practical information (= exasperation and time wasted, as in the Monty Python Cheese Shop sketch from 1971) and annoying amounts of distracting syndicated advertising served up on frequent next-page turns.

We have hundreds - or thousands - of records per page.

Beyond our robust directory systems, we offer dynamic high-content promotion (multi-media classified ads and context-proximate-placement display ads), custom web-presence (permalinks), event schedule promotion, and user-generated-content (UGC) accessible in the form of inspiring / motivating / entertaining content recommendations.

Who knows how much more we'll add before the full network is ready?! 

This concept was designed to grow... although single-handed, it will take until early 2022 to complete in-depth coverage of the Kootenays.

We have a lot more really cool plans on the horizon, and we're looking forward to involving you on the cutting edge!

CRESTON 1
Core Functions

With 1,250 direct connections (including live links, map locations and smart-phone active calling) validated regularly, we are a super-directory of Creston Valley-related products, services and activities. 

It's all here, set up by category for easy scanning, sorting and filtering.  You'll find it fast, and stay focused, having a good time exploring along the way.   We've also worked to ensure that there are minimal dead-ends or inappropriate results, and we welcome your input in enhancing the long term value of our database. 

We also provide easy access to relevant multimedia collections (images, videos, documents) to help celebrate all that we’re so lucky to have here.               

High-content, searchable, and creatively designed multi-page ads with
multimedia options, easily shared and printed.  There's nothing else like it!

Our Directory systems help you find suppliers.  High Class-ifieds is where you will find detailed information on what products and services are available

A pair of useful event systems:

First, a conventional table of event links that can be sorted and filtered.

Second, an interactive multi-user calendar that can provide participants with short-notice 24/7 event information and reminders. Event listings can be managed directly by authorized organization officials and accessed automatically via any device. 

Local user recommendations for inspiring and entertaining content on external social media sites, including Youtube and Facebook.   We'll be merging this into an even larger regional resource in early 2022.

Super flexible, the system will also feature presentations about local "heroes" and rising stars going above and beyond in a variety of fields, plus a range of personal and commercial success stories.

Primary categories are:  Achievement / Inspiration, Animals, Art, Comedy, Dance, Lifestyle, Music, Nature, and Other.

High quality in-context multimedia marketing options for enhanced site participation that cost just pennies a day: a tiny fraction of what traditional providers charge for far less performance.

Plus, we'll develop your multimedia materials quickly and at far below local market rates...if you provide us with a script and source files, producing a preliminary 30 second video might take about an hour and cost about $60.  Wow. 

Cross-promotion and efficient consolidation are key benefits of our network, potentially reaching over 100,000 local residents, backed by an integrated directory database of thousands of entries, most with direct hyperlinks and contact information and many with attractive featured enhancements.  Launching later in 2021/22, web brands include:
