Get listed in local directories

Being found locally can be made easier by accurately getting your business name reflected in local directories. There are some local directories for each business area, and these should be the first place you start. The beauty of being listed increases your exposure to the local business community and helps you take up more ‘real estate’ online by being listed in multiple places. Getting listed in local directories enhances the possibility of people finding your business if they are not familiar with you.Make sure your business name and address are identical in every listing; this will go a long way to verifying your accurate business information (for example, don’t say “Suite” on one listing and “Ste.” on the other). Be consistent!
