30 years ago finding a business meant sifting through the yellow pages. Fast forward to 2017; people are no longer using the yellow pages to find your business. They are online. Online, of course, is the quickest and fastest way to search for anything, including business listings. Your job is to make sure you can be found. Remember the question “are you listed in the phone book”? It’s time to ask yourself that very same question when it pertains to online databases. Are you listed?
The Internet contains hundreds of online directories. Google, Yahoo, Bing, and Yelp are some of the most popular ones. Your goal should be to have your business included in as many online directories as possible. Unfortunately, adding your business to an online directory is a tedious task. You have to submit a form to each directory and confirm that all of your information is accurate.
A simple solution to this inconvenience is listing distribution, which will distribute your business listing to hundreds of online directories simply by completing one form.
