Meet Business Key’s Regional Online Directories

Business Key aims to create online directories for each region in Western Australia that help form stronger communities by connecting customers to local businesses that can get the work done in no time. 

The coloured regions are the areas we currently offer our products and services. *Other regions are coming soon.

These directories are digital platforms that list businesses, products, and services within a specific region in Western Australia.

How Our Regional Online Directories Work

User-Friendly Search

Our directories for local businesses offer user-friendly search features. 

Users can search for businesses based on the following:

  • Specific categories (e.g. restaurants, plumbers),
  • Business names,
  • Keywords/phrases, or even narrow it down to
  • Towns or suburbs.

This precision ensures that users can quickly find businesses that match their needs.

Moreover, in today’s fast-paced world, time is a precious commodity. Users appreciate the efficiency of a user-friendly search function. 


They want to avoid sifting through pages of irrelevant results and get the information they need swiftly. Not to worry! Our search function streamlines this process, helping users save time and effort.


Alternatively, each online directory has a dedicated “View All Categories” page where you can browse a list of all our available categories.

Filters and Sorting

Our directories take user-friendly search, a step further by offering filters and sorting options. Users can refine their search by applying filters. This allows them to tailor their search to their specific needs and preferences.

Membership Packages
