As a local business, finding and attracting new customers can be really hard. There are so many tools you can use in your "marketing tool belt", it's often challenging to know where to start and what tools will work best for you.
One of the best places to start is making sure your local listings are plentiful and accurate. If they're not, there is very little chance any of that 85% of consumers will be able to find your business. Every directory you are listed in gives you one more chance to be found!
The list below covers a number of online business directories. Some are more appropriate to businesses in specific verticals, so review the list and highlight the different directories that are most appropriate for your local business.
I've tried to make it as easy as possible to claim your listings. If you click on the name of each listing it will take you to the appropriate page to get started.
Special Tip: Most of the directories I listed have a pretty broad appeal to a number of small businesses. There are a number of vertical specific directory listing sites I did not include on this list. You may also benefit by digging a little deeper for online directories specific to your vertical.
