Biz news source touts its growth

March 17, 2011, a business news site that operates in 11 cities across the country, now has more than 200,000 unique visitors to its site, a 50 percent growth in the past 60 days, the company said Thursday.

A story on its site states, “‘Citybizlist has become the local destination site for C-level executives and for B2B advertisers who want to reach this audience,’ said Edwin Warfield, CEO and founder of citybizlist.

“Citybizlist publishes high-impact local business news and information written and edited by citybizlist editors, each dedicated to one of 11 different markets that includes Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte/Raleigh, Dallas, Houston, New York, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, South Florida, and Washington, D.C.

“The editors also aggregate business news stories in every market. As a result, citybizlist has an influential, growing daily readership of their e-newsletters and on their websites.

“‘In the markets where we are published, and with the scope of our coverage, we virtually replace the daily print business newspaper,’ Warfield explained.”
