Manage Your Online Business Listings … WIN MORE LOCAL BUSINESS!
Accurate online business listings are vital to your success. At least, they are if you want prospects and customers who are searching for you online to be able to find you.
You DO want them to be able to find you, don’t you?
Consider this …
- You will lose the sale 100% of the time when a prospect calls a number they found online that’s listed as yours but isn’t.
- You will lose the sale 100% of the time when a prospect shows up at an address they found online that’s listed as yours but isn’t.
- You will lose the sale 100% of the time when a prospect can’t find you online on the platform they’re using.
STOP LOSING THESE SALES!
To fix the problem, you simply need to correct the inaccuracies and publish your business information to all the online search engines, apps, maps, directories, and social platforms where people might be looking for you.
But it’s extremely time consuming and sometimes not very easy to update your business information with dozens of online publishers.
First, you have to find the publishers who have inaccurate information about your business as well as those where you don’t have a listing at all. Then you have to submit the corrected information to them and request an update. Not all of these publishers allow business owners direct access to their listings, so sometimes the update process can be a lengthy one.
Even once your listings are corrected, you still have to be vigilant and monitor for changes to your information that are unauthorized by you. (Have you seen the “Suggest an edit” or “Is this information correct?” prompts that encourage user input? This is how your online information gets changed and becomes inaccurate!)
As I said earlier, this is a tedious and time-consuming task if you’re doing it manually.
