Key Online Directories to establish your online identity, courtesy of your Local Search Ninja

Your online presence is supported by third-party references.  Focus on this list first!

Take advantage of every online tool you can to begin building an online identity for yourself and your business. The biggest investment to follow this path would be in time. The main thing you want to accomplish is that when people type in your name, that they find something about you quickly.   You want them to be able to verify that you have a business, and that you take it seriously.  Below is a checklist you can use.   Before you begin, go into Google and search “YOUR NAME” and “YOUR COMPANY” and see what comes up.   (Try the same thing by typing in “Craig Backus” and see what comes up.)   This will show you where your identity stands today, and then once you’ve created a number of online directories, check again in a couple weeks, and you’ll see the impact.

 Critical online directories:

It’s important to fill out as much information in every directory, including photos of you, your business features, etc. Every piece of information you offer goes to build your credibility in the mind of a potential customer.
