The truth of the matter is each local business has essentially a free ‘local lead generation’ website on each of the major search engines that allows you to claim your spot in the local market and list your products and services, business hours, the areas your business serves, the categories your business falls into and what types of payments your business accepts.
In addition, you can upload photos and videos that help describe and promote your business and you can even setup up coupons and special offers to entice targeted prospects to do business with you, all for free!
Other proven local online traffic sources are local directories like YP.com and MerchantCircle.com. There are literally 100’s of local directories that any local business can and should take advantage of.
Tip: Be sure to properly optimize each one of your directory listings so your business shows up ahead of all of your competitors when people are searching for your specific products or services.
