Free Business Listing Site to Get Found: BBB & Angie’s List (Part 2) | Vicinus.ai
Continuing from our previous blog post (Free Business Listing Site to Get Found: Yelp & Bing | Vicinus.ai), here are some more free business listing sites that will help your business get found online.
BBB (aka Better Business Bureau) Business Listing
One of the best ways of getting your local business trusted online is to add it to BBB. This is because the Better Business Bureau is a signal to customers that they can trust in your business.
BBB is a review site that is both moderated and reviewed before publishing. This makes sure that any information submitted is only from verified customers.
Not only does BBB help your business get trusted by potential customers, but it can also help increase customer loyalty and online visibility too. This is because BBB gives your business a local SEO advantage and helps your business rank well for brand searches.
How Do I Create a BBB Business Listing?
There are standard instructions for submitting your local business to BBB.
- Find your local business
- Verify the business there
- Or add a new listing if the business isn’t in the directory yet
If your business has multiple locations:
- Create one listing that represents all locations or different listings for each area
How To Optimise My BBB Business Listing
In order to optimise your BBB business listing is to add all the information you possibly can:
- Logo image
- Business overview
- Business description
- Photos & Videos
- Products and/or services
- Any other information you can
After this, choosing the right business category is vital to getting your business found online. You can also add links to your website on BBB as well as your social media accounts too.
Angie’s list is a specialised business directory focusing on businesses that are in the industry of home repairs, auto, health care, pet care, and other professional services too.
This listing is great as consumers can find and review providers who are in their local communities.
Angie’s Listing is also useful for business owners too. This is because a business profile allows you to monitor and grow customer feedback whilst generating new leads and influencing buyer’s decisions as a result of communication in reviews.
How Can I Create ‘Angie’s List’ Business Listing?
The first thing you need to do is to add your business to Angie’s List. You should add all the information about your local business that you can such as:
- Working/Opening Hours
- Services and/or products
- Business description
- And more
However, it is best to add images too. These can be of your finished services, or even of employees performing their work and more.
How can I Optimise my Angie’s List?
As this business listing is focused on customer reviews, the best place to start is by asking some of your loyal customers to leave feedback on your listing. You can do this by asking your customers directly, or just by sharing a link to your listing on your social media profiles.
You can also utilize the ‘request reviews’ option on your listing which will send review invitations to your customers via emails.
