We have to change the free listing to a paid listing in 2022
It has been decided to change the free listing option, to a paid option from 2022. We established the Local Directory in 2014, and there has always been a free option for every business located in Northamptonshire.
Like everybody, we are facing rising costs from every direction, so change has to happen. We believe the Listing options from 2022 will offer great value, and will help fund the work we do to promote the Directory for the benefit of all listed Northamptonshire businesses.
Nothing before December 2021
Every business that joins before the end of the year will still enjoy all the existing benefits and there is no expiry date on Listings created until the end of the year.
There are many benefits for any type of local business that has a listing. If you would to know more, please check out the Questions and Answers section in the menu bar.
Many business owners have failed to understand how the Internet works. Nearly everybody uses the Internet to search for products, ideas, solutions, but when the business is found amongst all the million of websites, it is not down to just luck.
Being in the right place and the right time, with the right preparation is the difference between success and nothing.
Don’t do this
We have often mentioned how people use Google to search for their business, and in most cases the results show the website near the top of results. Great you might think. Not so great when you understand that Google knows what type of results you are looking for, and provides those solutions.
To fully understand if the website is indexed correctly, is to use a search engine like DuckDuckGo which still use Google, but hides all the information about you from Google. That way, you see what future customers see on the their searches.
Try it, you might be surprised at the results. If the business has a marketing agency that has a Search Engine Optimisation specialist, then you should be in good hands.
