Why add my business?
The business stratergy of yourlocalbiz is not just another directory but something a little more than that. We offer you the opportunity to list your business with a greater ammount of information than the other business directories. This gives your business another link in the 'webosphere' and more keywords to be found. We are not just another business directory.
People use the internet to search. A classified print newspaper recently converted their entire business to online only. If you don't have an online presence anywhere there is every chance that you will never be found; this is your opportunity to have your name or business to have a web presence and to be found. If you have an existing website or and listing somewhere else this is just another opportunity to have you business name online and for people to find you. In simple terms the more chances the better.
FREE! Did we mention that? :) Why is it free? Our business attitude is 'build it - they will come'. Premium listers will have the opportunity for more services. There are plans (and under way) for a premium listing service with more options, paid featured business options, site advertising options, sponsor options, PR features, targetted advertising campaigns, partner sponsors and more.
Each new lister will be broadcast aswell as periodic targetted business categories. So the more people you can get to follow www.twitter.com/yourlocalbizAU the better ;) :)
Yourlocalbiz has some unique market plans to grow your business which only be made known to genuine business listers.
Yourlocalbiz has a different ideology to most businesses: We listen to our customers! In general we someone asks a question "Can you do this?" what they really mean is "We would like to be able to do this". So if you have a question >> Just ask. Questions will be added to the FAQs aswell.
