Ever hear clients say they tried to call you on a disconnected phone number they found online? Need to make sure Google Maps sends traffic to your front door instead of a competitor? Want to know when someone leaves a bad review of your services so you can respond promptly?
Well then, have we got good news for you, friend: CleverOgre is now offering Listings Management to help with all of this and more!
Remember when we used phone books to look up phone numbers and addresses for businesses? Back then, a listing in those fat, yellow behemoths was all that was needed to be found by customers. When a business moved or changed phone numbers, we simply contacted Ma Bell and let her know the details. Easy-peasy.
These days, the internet and powerful mobile devices have made phone books obsolete. Customers simply whip out their phones to see who offers what they’re looking for. Within a click or two, they can see where you’re located, how to contact you and what other people have to say about your customer service.
The trouble is, not all of the information out there is accurate
Online directories — specialized services that gather phone numbers, addresses and other information about businesses — often pick up and distribute bad info. Old addresses or phone numbers from previous locations, mistaken entries, even bad reviews of other companies from confused customers can end up attached to your business name.
Thankfully, we have a solution to these problems and more: Listings Management from CleverOgre.
What Can Listings Management Do for Your Business?
Listings Management helps customers trust your business
Studies show that 73% of consumers say they lose trust in a business when they find incorrect or conflicting information online. Since nearly 40% of business listings in online directories contain errors, this results in an estimated yearly loss of nearly $10 billion in sales.
When online information is complete and correct, more people can find you and become paying customers. In fact, customer confidence nearly doubles when listings include additional information such as hours of operation, ratings, photographs, menus and product descriptions.
Listings Management is a crucial facet of successful SEO efforts
Search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo comb through online directories for contact and location information to display in their search results. When they find conflicting addresses, phone numbers or website URLs for your company, the search engines are less confident about serving up your business as a trusted result.
Listings Management Lets You Stay Focused on Running Your Business
When you sign up for Listings Management with CleverOgre, we start by scouring more than 100 of the top digital services.
