Pharr is a city located in southeastern Texas, and it makes up part of McAllen’s metro area. Pharr takes up a relatively thin sliver of land between McAllen and Edinburg, and Pharr leads directly into Mexico through the border crossing along State Route 281, making it a significant port of entry.
A bridge over the Rio Grande connects Pharr directly to the Mexican city of Reynosa. Pharr doesn’t have many attractions within city limits, but within a short drive, you’ll find the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge and the Basilica of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle.
Growing a small business is never an easy task, but marketing can facilitate it if a marketing campaign is properly conducted. On the flip side, a poorly run marketing campaign can exhaust your marketing budget without any notable gains, which is why we take so much pride in our performance lead generation service.
Due to our 100% results-oriented approach, we make sure that businesses only pay for the authentic lead. In practical terms, this saves you money on leads that would have never panned out in the first place and makes it more likely that the leads you do get end up becoming customers.
Pharr was established in 1910, though it was largely an agricultural community for much of the 20th century. It took until the later years of the century for the city to start growing significantly, largely due to its status as a port of entry to the USA.
