Expert Outlines Benefits of Local Business Directories

There is more than meets the eye when it comes to the benefits of creating a local business listing. One expert explains what other benefits small business owners can expect when taking this important step.

Many local business owners understand the importance of listing their business on a local business directly, but according to one expert, they may understand all the benefits that come along with it.

“I speak with local business owners all the time and they seem to view local business listings as a thing they have to do but aren’t excited about what it could do for their business,” says a spokesman from, an online local business directory that opens up avenues of free advertising or small and local businesses. “But once I explain all the benefits they receive from the listings, their attitude about them completely changes.”

He says that SEO ranking and business visibility are two of the largest benefits small businesses can reap from creating a local business listing. “Most business owners understand that people search local business directories to find local businesses, especially when they’re in the car and on the go,” he says, “but the benefits reach way beyond that.” For instance, he says that SEO ranking can be difficult for small business owners because they are competing with large businesses that have a big budget. But when a local listing is created, that business will automatically dovetail on the local business directory’s marketing and SEO efforts. “It’s a way to use the directory’s marketing expertise without spending a dime,” he says.

He also talks about business visibility, which is key to attracting new customers. “If a business cannot be found on the internet, they will have a difficult time bringing in new business,” he explains, “and a local directory is one of the best ways to get that visibility. After all, that’s where consumers are searching when trying to find local businesses.”

“The best part?” he asks. “Create a local business listing is absolutely free. Business owners can spend ten minutes creating their business listing and open the door to new customers almost instantaneously.” is a local business directory that uses GEO location technology to make each visitor’s experience unique.
