Get Listed on Bing, Yahoo, & Google!

Basically If you have a business, and you want to get found you need to set these up. We can do it for you but its so easy we recommend you do it. Consider it an exercise in link building, and remember to keep it updated.
As far as paid directory services there is lower hanging fruit to harvest first before you give any listing service a dime. Excluding critical industry listings (their still are a few cases where business viability demands it) don’t do it, for the vast majority of businesses it’s just waist.

A Word on Yellow Pages

Seriously not a single customer of mine who has used their services for online marketing has been happy with their paid listing service. Basic reoccurring complaint is their pushy sales people and crazy high prices.

If you want to pay to play, then we’d suggest and an ad-words campaign. Granted we’re bias since we offer a service in setup these accounts, but we deliver far greater results than Yellow Pages. We’d be happy to explain why and how.
