The Internet is vast and propagating our websites out there takes hard work and a lot of patience. One of the things a webmaster must be able to do after building a website is to make sure it is enlisted in a digital directory. This is another way of helping your customers find you.
Below are some of the top directories in Australia where you can submit your business websites to. Do note that these are just suggestions and you are welcome to research more about these business directories.
AussieWeb Local Search is an online business directory in Australia that lists phone numbers, URLs, and office addresses. Local businesses can be found by potential customers according to categories.
Hotfrog lists business websites according to popular keywords. Search results for different kinds of businesses chosen by keywords (web design or lighting, for example) are viewed by state, region, or suburb. Generally, they remind that your business is unique, and that you should use them to let future customers know what you do uniquely.
Local Business Guide
Local Business Guide has provided high quality listings to increase business exposure since 2006. The site includes a photo of your business, opening hours, your business’ special offers, a list of your products, and many more. All information about your business are published as an entire page on their domain.
True Local is an Australian online directory that is also a mobile-friendly website that finds the right businesses according to relevance and location. It also has millions of searches monthly. Key functions of this website for listed businesses include ratings and reviews, uploading of photos by consumers, and users can list all their favorite businesses in one place. Also, check their True Local iPhone app for searches on-the-go.
Yellow Pages lists local businesses for customers to easily find what they are looking for. They can be viewed according to category from the main page, and each business page includes company information together with images, and banners regarding their latest deals. Customers can rate and review a business or endorse it. Additional information for each business include an “About Us” mini-page, “Products and Services”, “Additional Locations”, and “Payment Methods”, which is most useful when you want to immediately know how to be able to purchase or pay for products and services you will need from them, as a consumer.
Remember, before you enlist in any of these directories, be sure you always follow instructions to the letter, otherwise your listing might not be properly submitted or published. Fill in all the information as needed and check for confirmation emails, if there are any. Make sure that the details about your website are written well and that all contact information is correct. If possible, triple-check your submission (it won’t hurt to do so) before you finalise everything. Being seen and listed on the web makes it more possible for customers to find you in a click.
