Reasons to use an Online Business Directory
Increase Your Website Traffic
Online Business Directories usually contain links to your personal business website. This link counts as a back-link for SEO. It also serves as a way for people to directly visit your website, which naturally increases your website traffic. Not only does listing your business on an online directory get you more traffic, but it also gets you higher quality traffic. Anyone visiting from an online business directory is specifically interested in the services that you have to offer.
Improve Your Business’ Online Visibility and Rank Higher on Search Engines
Speaking of SEO, the more quality back-links you have the better. When Google (or other search engines) find your link on a business directory, they increase your score and rank within their specific search engine. The higher you rank on search engines, the more organic traffic you will get.
Connect with New Potential Customers
Two kinds of visitors land on business directory pages. The first kind of visitors are business owners, perhaps like folks reading this article. They come to register their own business, and while they do, they have the chance of coming across your business. This can provide you with new business clients or even B2B networking opportunities. The second kind of visitors are consumers, and they will be looking for a business to meet their needs. Finding your business on a directory makes your company look more professional, and instantly puts you ahead of the competition in a consumer’s mind. Not only will you stand out, but you might even have 5 star reviews to seal the deal, and that leads me to my next point.
Get New Customer Reviews & Testimonials
Many business directories allow customers to rate or review companies. I personally recommend sending your most satisfied clients a link to your new business listing, and asking them to write you a 5 star review. This will help other people find you, as well as make them feel confident in hiring your services, or purchasing your products. After you have some reviews, you can share them on social media, or even copy them directly to your personal website to showcase your 5 star rating.
