I always get the question “when someone does a search for local staffing companies, how can I get my company on the map?” While there are a number of factors that go into it, the most important is to make sure your listing is updated and claimed! These listings, also referred to as business citations, can help enhance your local SEO efforts and are a key part of an effective online marketing strategy.
Here are the top online business directories we suggest focusing on (these are in no particular order of importance–but focus on the big guys first!):
- DMOZ – Open Directory
- Better Business Bureau
- Merchant Circle
- Industry associations like American Staffing Association
- Local Chamber of Commerce and Business Associations
In addition to updating your listings on these sites, it’s important to begin building online reviews and recommendations on sites like Yelp, Google, Facebook and more. Updated and consistent listing information, coupled with a large number of positive reviews will create a very strong foundation and improve your brand visibility and image.
