If a local business submits a properly optimized Local Business Listing to the right local directories on the Internet their business can generate up to 2,000 unique and local visitors per month. By attracting 24,000 unique visitors a year a business can save about $24,000 in PPC (Pay Per Click Costs) a year. (On a side note – Pay Per Click Costs are what you pay to a company like Google to get phone calls or leads for your business.) These benefits sure do justify either the effort put in to do this work or paying a company a minimal amount to do the work for you.
Here are some numbers:
1. There are about 3,000,000 businesses that are related to the building and construction industry.
2. 50% of the industry DOES NOT have a website.
3. Thousands of new businesses are created monthly.
And less than 25% of these companies take advantage of the amount of business that exists on the Internet. Take advantage of the opportunities that the Internet provides. You will be surprised to find out how easy it is to benefit from the Internet.
