Business Directory Owner Announces Plan to Help Small Businesses During COVID

The owner of a local business directory talks about how small business owners can use a free service to advertise their shops, restaurants, and service businesses in these trying times.

Small business owners across the nation are struggling as the lockdowns and fear have prevented people from visiting their local stores. But lately, as more and more cities and towns open up for business, small shop owners face another dilemma: They don’t have the advertising budgets they did before the lockdowns.

“We’re seeing it quite often,” says the owner of FindUsLocal, a local business directory that offers fast and extensive results for consumers looking for local business information. “Small business owners are thrilled to be able to open their doors, but they have lost the ability to spend a lot of advertising dollars to remind consumers where they are.” He continues, “That’s why we want to get the word out about the help we can offer.”

He says that business owners can go to and claim their business’ page and then fill in the details consumers look for when deciding which local business they will visit. “Consumers want to know store hours, what products or menus are being offered during scaled back business operations, and look for reviews from past customers. We give all of that for free to business owners who use our site.”

As people react to COVID, it’s more important than ever to offer consumers a way to find information about your business without having to talk to someone else. “Right now,” he says, “people want a fast and easy way to get the information they need. Those small shops that make use of local business directories will likely pull in more business than those who don’t because they are giving consumers exactly what they need during these difficult times.” is a local business directory that uses GEO location technology to make each visitor’s experience unique. It strives to be the best free business directory available by consistently advertising, improving the site, and working with small business owners to provide free advertising.
