Local Business Expert Explains How to Get Benefits in the New Year

It’s the New Year, and many local business owners have one thing at the top of their New Year’s resolutions list: to get more customers through the door and build their business. And one expert on local business marketing says that a free tool can help them do exactly that.

“Local business marketing has changed dramatically in the past few years,” says a spokesman from FindUsLocal.com, an online business directory that offers free and effective advertising for local business owners. “And those who are keeping up with the times are sure to grow their business this year. But those who are may struggle more than they anticipated.”

He’s talking about the fact that most local shoppers no longer rely on old-school local business marketing techniques but instead turn to their computers and phones when trying to find local businesses. “For instance,” he says, “studies show that the majority of people use their phones to find local businesses while they’re on the go.” And how do they find those businesses? By logging onto local business directories and using the search feature on them.

He says that when shoppers want to find a local business, they log onto local business directories such as FindUsLocal.com and find instance results whether they are looking for a dress shop, restaurant, pet store, or a place to fix their flat tire. And those businesses that can’t be found on these directories are missing out on a lot of new business.

“The great part of it is that it’s free for local shop owners to create their business listings. And not only will it allow consumers to find their business, but it also creates a place for them to leave a review after visiting it.”

The New Year is here, and most experts agree that the retail work has gone online, even those local business owners that serve their local communities.

FindUsLocal.com is a local business directory that uses GEO location technology to make each visitor’s experience unique. It strives to be the best free business directory available by consistently advertising, improving the site, and working with small business owners to provide free advertising.
