Are you in charge of marketing initiatives for a franchise organization? Do you have a large amount of single store locations, say over 1,500 locations? If so, you already know it takes a substantial about of time and a very high cost to have your marketing or IT team submit each of your franchise locations to reputable online directories. Most franchise organizations realize the daunting nature of such a task and subsequently do not execute a strategy to take on a directory listing project.
By submitting your franchise locations to local online business directories, your franchise organization can reap tremendous benefit. What are those benefits? First, you enable your local franchisees to gain business opportunities in their local communities. Second, you gain control of making sure each store location is correctly listed across the internet. Third, by listing your locations throughout the web on important and authoritative business directories, your corporate website and/or local store will receive impressive search engine optimization benefits.
So, what do we do? We get each of your franchise locations listed with other
300 directories in addition to mobile and GPS directories and 411 directory assistance directories. By getting your locations listed in all of these directories you substantially increase the likelihood of potential customers finding your locations before finding someone else.
Customers use consumer sites, local directories, search engine maps, GPS systems and their mobile devices to find businesses in their area. We get you listed in all of these places. Wouldn’t it be great to have your store locations submitted to GPS companies like Onstar… which literally guide customers to the parking lot of your business with such ease?
