More tips

If you don't already have one we highly recommend creating a Facebook page for your business. Facebook and all the other companies we listed above spend a huge amount of money on advertising so having a page or listing with them will give you a headstart when it comes to marketing and will also boost your search ranking which will result in more clicks to your website.

Remember NAP = Name, Address, Phone Number. Make sure these are exactly the same on your website, Facebook page and all business directly listings. Search engines like consistency and doing this can help boost your rankings.

Research your industry to find other relevant free business listing directories that cater for your customers and audience. For example if you have a beauty business you could list on these sites:

Always include your logo or an image people will relate to your business.

Fill out every free category available, don't leave anything blank. It may take you a bit of time but it will be worth it in the long run.
