5 Key Lists for Local Business Growth

For my last blog post of  the year, I wanted to share a few items that can help local businesses.  There was a lot of great material written in 2011 about how local businesses can grow using online resources.  Here are 5 lists you should not miss:

  1. Timeline to launch a Google Places page – This is a great article from Mike Blumenthal about launching your Google places page.
  2. Steps to Feature your reviews on Facebook – Kevin Baca wrote a post on how to
  3. 5 Free and Easy ways to monitor social media – There are lots of ways to monitor social media.  Some of the best are free.  Here is a list of 5 of them.
  4. How to dominate local search – This is a guide from Hubspot that is a very useful summary of key to-do items.
  5. Local search ranking factors – This annual release is one of the best online resources for clarifying what works and what does not work in local search optimization.  One of the key take-aways here is that there is no “right answer”.  Even the most specialized experts don’t agree on what works best.

2011 was a great year for Customer Lobby and 2012 is going to be even better (more to come on the new product we are launching in January)!  Thanks for your support this year. I am looking forward to hearing  your  ideas on how we can better serve your needs.   Happy holidays!
