Do a search for a local business and you'll see listings of businesses in your area. 97% of consumers search for local businesses online. It is important to be there when they're looking for your goods or services. If you aren't there, it's like someone walking right past your door and not even knowing you are open for business!
In a ReachCast blog by Tamara Farley, she lists 4 compelling reasons why you should optimize your business listings:
1. Directories and Review Sites Boost Your SEO.
2. Unclaimed Listings Can Work Against You.
3. Listings Are Good for Your Reputation.
4. Local Directories are (Usually) Free.
