Local Citations are a Must. Here’s Why

I often get asked questions on how a local business can get there name out on the internet. This is a good question and I will be answering that very question in this blog post.

On of the best ways, in my opinion, to get your business noticed very quickly is to use business citations. This is a great way for customers to find you when they search business citation sites. A few just to name are Yelp, Manta, Merchant Circle, and Hot Frog.

All of them are easy to get listings on and you will just need to enter your basic business information to get started. I’ve seen clients get calls almost immediately just by adding their business to local citation sites.

How to Create Them

So there are basically two ways to create a local listing. You can either do them manually or have a company like Bright Local or Yext create them for you. Bright Local and Yext cost around $3 for each citation they create, so a good campaign will cost you about $200 to get a good amount of listings.

So there you go. Now go create some local citations for your business. I will create a list of local citation websites below for you.

Why I’m Starting Chicago Building Business Quickly Blog.

For starters my name is James and I am creating this blog to help others with digital marketing. I currently work for a marketing agency in downtown Chicago and I get questions all the time from people about what is working best in the digital land of marketing. I just decided a blog would be the easiest way for me to share the information I get asked on a regular basis.

So if you have any questions related to digital marketing feel free to contact me and if it is a common question I get asked I will create a blog post about it.
