Melbourne business directory. As a small business owner, your business should be listed in one. Before you do list with one, please read this entire report. There are quite a few directories that will let you list your business for free or there are the paid variety that charge around $60 up to $750 per […]
If you do some research on your search engine and input a trade or service usually the first page of results will come from a business directory. You would then have to click through various links to get to the information you are after.
One such benefit is the fact that if you have a website, there is usually a link back to your site from within the pages of the business directory. Without sounding to techno and geeky this can be a good thing as far as your website is concerned.
But, if you were to give me the option of having my website listed in various Melbourne business directory or having my website in the top 3 for a number of different search terms related to my business, I know which one I would take.
To me, it would more profitable to have my website seen by thousands rather than a Melbourne business directory listing that could get buried with the masses. As I said, that is me though.
We could break this down even further by submitting your business to Carrum Downs Business Directory for example. These directories focus solely on small businesses within a municipality, suburb or town instead of a major city. But the same scenario pops up as above.
A potential client finally arrives at the list of “termite control Frankston” businesses in his area but he has a choice of five to pick from. Your chances of picking up that client just diminished because of this whereas, if your website was listed in the top 3 of the search engine, a potential client just walked in the door.
I do not write this to criticise any Melbourne business directory. They serve a great purpose. My whole point is this. Wouldn’t you, a small business owner, rather have a top spot in the search engines, thus more visitors and potential clients, than be rammed deep in the bowels of a Melbourne business directory with 5, 10 or even 20 other competing businesses.
Fairly simple question huh?
