How to get in front of local customers – Basics

Ok! here is the secret sauce …..I am just kidding. There is no secret but to list your business with local directories. This step alone has power to get you business that you deserve. I want you to make sure you have following items ready before you do that :

  1. A Good looking website – If you do not have one then you can get it from your local Website design company . When someone search you locally then you want to send them to a good looking website which can connect with your potential customer
  2. Phone Number – Most of you will not have an issue with this step but if you have a cell phone and want a local number then you can use google voice
  3. Work Email – I am not talking about gmail or yahoo mail or msn, I am talking about XXX@yourcompany.com . Google offers professional email service for $5 per month per account
  4. Pics – Professional Pics of your Team or office building or logo that you can upload on these directories

 

Once you have all of the above then you are ready to get all those customers that you are missing out. You can submit to multiple directories or get help from some local internet marketing companies. Following are some of the Top 5 Local Business Directories that you should consider

  1. Google
  2. Bing
  3. Yahoo
  4. Yelp
  5. Facebook

We do go beyond these Top 5 directories and cover many other local directories for business listings based on business type but if you can just follow these simple steps then you are very close to create your local brand name.

Good Luck!
