The New Year is a Great Opportunity to Increase Local Sales Says

An expert in local marketing says that one small thing could make the difference in a successful and not-so-successful New Year.

An expert in local marketing says that the New Year provides the perfect opportunity for local business owners to reset their marketing efforts and begin bringing in new business.

“A New Year represents all things new, and one of the best things a local business owner can do is to take a new look at what they’re doing to bring in new business,” says a spokesman from, an online US local business directory that provides free advertising to local shop and restaurant owners. “A New Year is a great time to evaluate your game plan and make changes that will increase business,” he says.

He says one of the smartest things local shop owners can do is to make sure their business can be found on local business directories. “Today’s consumers use local business directories whenever they want to find local businesses,” he says. “And if your business can’t be found there, you’re likely missing out on a lot of business.”

He says that creating a local business listing is free, and only takes about ten minutes to do. “It’s a small time investment, but doing so could result in an increase in business for many years to come.”

“It’s the New Year,” the spokesman says. “And that means it’s time to reevaluate what’s working and what’s not. And if someone has a local business that’s been relying on old-school methods of marketing, they can make the change now to reap greater business in the New Year.” He says creating a free local business listing is a great step toward making those kinds of changes.
