As an entrepreneur or small business owner promotion is a must. How else are you going to get your business out there, right?
While it’s true we can promote our business on social sites like Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn today it’s about free online directories.
It’s no secret that it takes money to promote a business and many entrepreneurs or small business owners don’t have the big bucks to shell out for ad space. I wish money wasn’t an object but it is and because of that I have to look for great deals or even free-99 like my daughter says. LOL
If you have a product or business you would like to be more visible and reach more customers, placing a listing on an online directory is a great way to get your business noticed.
Free Online Directories
When you search for free online directories you’ll get a ton of hits. But not to worry my friend, I put a list together for you to save you time from searching through all those entries.
Craigslist – You can promote just about anything on Craigslist. To place ad, select post to classifieds located at the top left of the website and select service offered for a free listing.
FindWebsite.net Link Directory – Add your website link for free but they also have extra paid-for features such as adding a star, badge, bigger link, text style.
Jayde – Join the largest B2B search engine and get your business seen.
Manta – Not only can you place your listing for free but Manta has all kinds of resources for entrepreneurs.
Superpages.com – Setting up a free listing on this site is very easy. Just a couple simple steps and you’re done.
yp.com – Get a free listing at Yellow Pages so customers can find your local service or product.
What About Google?
I tried to set up a listing on Google My Business but the problem I had with the setup was that it didn’t take a P.O. Box. I’m not comfortable putting my home address so I don’t think I would use it to promote an online business but it would be great for a brick and mortar biz.
