Local Business Listings
Local business listings can increase leads and sales for your company – are you taking full advantage of them? To optimize your local business listings, we provide more than just submission or listing services. SmartFinds offers both data management and marketing services to help claim your listings, update them with relevant business marketing information, and monitor and maintain each local business listing to effectively engage online customers.
Businesses need to stop passively watching and actively engaging to market their office, building, store or franchise locally. This is a marketing tool that affects both desktop searches and mobile searches. Customers on the go are looking for the nearest office, store, or franchise location for their searches.
Equally, we need to accept the concept a local business is not a small business. Multi-Location national companies with a local office, building, store or franchise presence are also dependent upon the locations economy for their revenue. After all, all business is local!
There are three important questions to answer for marketing your business office, building, store or franchise locally:
- Can your locations be found locally for keyword searches?
- Do you have your marketing materials in your business listings?
- Do you have at least a 4 out of 5 stars in your customer ratings & reviews?
Local Marketing Process
Make It Easy for Customers to Find You
Local business listings help your customers find you and generate leads from new online marketing sources. Local business listings show up in search results, on mobile map results, on mobile searches, and in mobile applications for your stores’ local customers! Many of these mobile searches are done while customers are already out and about, actively searching for your products and services, so it is the optimal time to connect with and engage them!

To enhance this process, we syndicate information for each individual store or franchise location out to a wide array of business listing websites. We will claim your local business listing at the top ten directories including Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yelp, Local.com, YellowPages, Insider Pages, and more. Once your listings have been claimed, we update them with relevant keywords, marketing information, photos, videos, coupons, categories, and descriptions for each individual store location or franchise location.
