An expert in local marketing says he can predict which local businesses will have a prosperous year and which ones will struggle based on one key factor.

The numbers are in for the holiday season, and they are good. It’s apparent that some local business owners did fantastic, while others struggled. And according to an expert in local marketing, there is one distinction between them.

“So many local business owners haven’t yet realized that in today’s culture, they can’t rely on old school local marketing techniques,” says a spokesman from, an online local business directory that shows every visitor a customized home page with all the local news, events, and local businesses. “The local business owners who are doing well all have one thing in common: an online presence.”

He’s talking about creating a free local business listing on a local business directory. These listings are free to set up, and according to the spokesman, can make a huge difference in the amount of new foot traffic experienced by local businesses.

“Today’s consumers find local businesses online, and if a business can’t be found there, it won’t see an increase in new customers. It’s that simple.”

He suggesst going to and setting up a free local business listing for any business that does not yet have an online presence. According to him, it may make the difference between a prosperous year and one that is a struggle.”It takes about ten minutes to do it, but the increased business you will gain from it can last for years.”
