Listing your business in an online directory

A Powerful and Profitable Online marketing Approach

Efficient advertising mediums like newspapers, well-known journals or Television ads are particularly effective for boosting a business.

Another extremely effective way of quickly boosting your business without spending much is to get your business and website listed in online business directories. You can even have it listed in numerous directories. Doing so will steadily rank your website in the search engines and bring in more customers.

On the other side of the coin, building and maintaining your own online business directory can be just as profitable.

Many business websites utilise online directories such as the online Yellow Pages as a standard advertising strategy. These directories are both useful for the business owners as well as customers since the business website and physical address is listed, making it easier to find online and offline.

On its own, a small 3 page local business website will have a hard time ranking highly in Google’s search results, therefore leveraging the power of a large and established online directory is valuable as it connects buyers and sellers directly, allows you to establish your brand, provide news about your business and most importantly, attract more customers.

Some business directories even let you list your business for free, while the more authoritative ones often charge for a listing. They even have listing upgrade opportunities like online discount coupons, acquisition services and detailed reporting tools for you to use.

No matter what type of business you operate or its size, listing it an online business directory, whether paid or free, will be of great benefit in the long run and will steadily increase your online brand.
