A couple of weeks ago, we introduced you to our latest offering MyCorporation Digital Services. This is designed to take your small business to the next level with the help of services that include reputation, social, websites, analytics, and listings. Of the five, you might be surprised to see listings included but they’re an incredibly valuable tool. Getting your company listed locally, and on search engines, helps grow your small business.
Let’s quickly break down how listings allow your small business to grow substantially in three bullets.
1. Customers can’t look for you if your listings are incorrect or missing.
Want to hear some unsettling statistics about the reality of small business listings? 93% have missing or incorrect website information listed across all listings sources. For 86% of businesses, their company name information is missing or incorrect. 72% have missing or incorrect addresses and 71% have missing or incorrect phone numbers.
If you’re not listed on local listings or in search engines and directories, it’s proven that customers have a hard time finding you. 73% of consumers even lose trust in a brand when their listings are incorrect. If the right information can’t be found, they’ll seek out companies that can provide it — AKA your competitors.
2. Listings make it easy for customers to find you.
Search engine listings are most frequently cited as how customers found businesses and services. Be where your customers can find you! A lot of great things happen for your business when a customer finds your accurate listings. This leads to more sales for your company, satisfied customers, and boosted SEO results and visibility among potential customers.
3. No website? No problem!
This is the best and least expensive first step in the process — you don’t even need a website to get listed.
