Yellow Book.com offers free local business listings you should claim for your business.
Fifty years ago, the local yellow page directory was one place every business owner made sure to have a listing. Consumers turned to the printed yellow pages to not only find the phone numbers of local businesses – but also the physical location as well. Many businesses took their listings in the yellow pages to the “next level” by purchasing a display ad – to entice consumers who were in the final stages of their purchasing decision.
Today – consumers are flocking to the web to find that information and more – yellow book has followed consumers online – offering a local business directory with free local listings.
Like other local business search listings, if you’ve had a business phone with a listing in the yellow pages – you’ll probably find your business already has a profile on Yellowbook.com.
To claim that listing – you simply search the site and find your business listing – then claim it via the link within the listing.
You’ll be directed to a separate page where you can then claim your listing and create online coupons for your business.
Once you’ve claimed your free listing, there are of course, opportunities to “increase” your exposure via the site by upgrading your listing to a paid listing. Paid listings include the ability to include video in your listing .
Yellowbook.com makes it easy for you to include an introductory video with your paid listing. They even offer video production services so your video won’t have a home made “You-Tube” quality to it. You can use the video footage in other online advertising – but the video will be hosted on Yellowbook.com’s servers. At the end of your 12 month contract, the video is yours to use as you please.
You can see the differences between free local business listings and “paid” local business listings on yellowbook.com here. Free local listings can still utilize online coupons to help consumers make a decision and pick up the phone to contact your business. Businesses can even create “mention this ad to receive a discount” style coupons on yellowbook.com.
Yellowbook.com is yet another free local business search listing you’ll want to claim for your business.
