Improve Sales with a Local Search Listing on GooPages
How does a local business listing generate more sales?
The answer is not all of them do. Most local search or local business directories are simply a citation. Not much you can do with them. Your business name, address and phone number. That’s about it and there are thousands of those out there.
Rather than just another citation or business listing, GooPages offers you a dashboard that allows you share your videos, images, documents, coupons, special offers, and even build your own online store where customers can buy from you directly. (GooPages doesn’t take any commissions or charge transaction fees. You use the payment processor of your choice.)
Your dashboard provides you with a ton of tools to reach out to potential customers to get them to visit your business in person, visit your website, become part of your community or contact you directly.
That is the bottom line, isn’t it? How do I improve sales?
For you, that may mean getting more people to visit your business location in person or getting them to buy your products online. Either way, GooPages helps you improve sales.
