Promoting your business through local business listings
Effective promotion actually means promoting and marketing your product or service online and physically (locally targeted) where most people would be looking for it (both online and in person). Online shopping and exposure has become increasingly important and sellers are always on the lookout for unique ways on the internet to promote their products and services. Bugon Website Services will assist your business in marketing your business through locally targeted marketing which helps target market businesses which have a physical business address take advantage of online local marketing techniques.
How the Local Marketing Process Works
We will be placing your business under the suitable categories of the most sought after search engines, local social networks as well as the yellow pages. These are popular places where people browse through to attain information regarding goods and services. If these local sites decide to feature your business, imagine the kind of coverage your business would get and the amount of exposure your business would also receive. According to Matt Cutts of Google, the listings help search engines find businesses as well as potential clients looking for a localized business.
Local business data centers such as Superpages make information accessible which has been listed with other local sites. Before submitting your website for being listed at Google local, Bing, and Yahoo local, it is mandatory that separate accounts are created. The process of submission is long and tedious. This is where Bugon Website Services steps in. The services offered by us are:
- Creation of e-mail accounts to handle submissions. (The report which will be sent to the clients would contain the id and the password).
- Hand completing information regarding your company and manually submitting your business based on your input.
- Making sure that there are no visible errors in the submission.

- If you do have a website, the listing will increase the traffic to your website.
- Getting located on the maps would let your customer know exactly where you are located.
- According to Google, it is one of the best marketing techniques.
Requirements for local business listings
Local business listings are helpful in the cases of companies which have a physical presence and are actually located in the real world. If your business just exists online, then you would hardly benefit from the process. Proper verifications of the information provided would be carried out and all the content is subjected to checking by the administrators of the local websites in question. You need to be the complete authority when it comes to the marketing of your goods and services. Typical submissions will take around 5-7 days to be completed on our end.
