Managing your local listings can be a pain if you don’t have a plan. There are many moving parts, and even a relatively small error can lead to problems that can cost you in a rather expensive way.

If you’ve got multiple locations for your business this work might be all the more unsavory, but steel yourself with the truth that getting this part right can unlock the door to a better business in numerous ways. Let’s take a look at some of what you ought to do to achieve good local listing management.

Getting the basics of your local listings in order

Here are some of the basics you need to take care of before trying to be a local rock star.

  • The most essential aspect of managing your local listings is to make sure your NAP data, that is your company’s name, addresses and phone contact, (along with all your other data) is correct across all locations and platforms.
  • Many times local companies make the mistake of lacking a phone contact number. Don’t be that guy! Even if it is only a voicemail ensure your customers and prospects can reach you.
  • Make sure to completely fill out any profiles online that contain your information. This is a great way to get info out there about your business, and the more you can inform readers, the greater shot you’ll have at getting that new lead.

Taking the next step

After you’ve got your business listings on your sites and local directories finished, it’s time to look into what you can gain from the many and varied local business sites meant to help you get noticed. Many of these won’t charge a fee, but there are a few that are worth spending a few dollars on. What follows is a few ideas to get you going.

  • Make sure you are indexed in the major search engines, Google, Yahoo and Bing.
  • Take a look at sites like Infogroup, Acxiom, Localeze, and Factual. These aggregators provide data to mobile companies and search engines alike, and are very useful in extending your reach and visibility.
  • Yelp, Yext, Foursquare, Facebook possess a lot of authority when it comes to local business. Good reviews on these can boost your business quickly.
