4 Best Sites to Promote Your Business
June 16, 2017
Posting your products and offered services online is like showcasing them to the whole world, and offering each netizen (i.e. avid user of the Internet) something from which you can both benefit. However, there are two things businessmen need to consider in breaking through the new platforms for their goods.
One: Making sure that their business becomes visible to as many people as possible.
Two: Ensuring that what people see will convince them to buy the service or products offered.
The following websites are now being used for business purposes for free, and the features they offer for online promotions is enough to challenge businessmen’s creativity.
Google My Business
Enlisting your business on this site will make it easily available for people to discover. By using this app, you can write a short description of your store or café, attach some of your best pictures on the advertisement, then wait for online ratings of your customers.
One of the greatest features of Google My Business is that once you have written the address of your establishment on the site, the logo of the building will be visible on Google maps, and makes your business accessible. Customers will also be able to see the distance from their current location to your shop, which will more likely stir their interest.
Bing Places for Business
As the default search engine for windows 8, the online visibility Bing can offer your business is not to be questioned.
This site makes presenting one’s business on the web encouraging, by allowing users to post pictures, add 10,000 lines of excel information, videos, and the location of the shop.
Yahoo Local listings
Though lagging behind when it comes to the number of users, 1 out of 8 Americans still use Yahoo.com as a search engine. This site allows you to use its essential features for free, but requires a $9.95 payment for uploading photos to your business blogs. It also adds additional charges for expanding the platform of your business up to 40 directories.
The greatest advantage of using Yahoo local listings, is that it makes your business most visible to nearby customers. It shows your promotion to locations near the address of your business.
With millions of users and subscribers fiddling around on this site every day, YouTube is a great platform for uploading your business commercials. Not only does it give your product or service the attention it needs, using videos as a means of promotion is also proven to be more convincing than text-ads.
Several online buyers likely base their decisions to buy or not to buy, on recommendations or online reviews, so posting reaction video of customers eating at restaurants can be a great way to present your business.
