How To Keep Track Of Local Listings
One element successful business owners have is an online presence. This can range anywhere from social media platforms, websites, Google, local listings, and more. The trouble with having multiple online platforms is keeping track of them all. For your business to be up to date across the board, all local listings must be consistent. How do you keep track of all your information across multiple listing and platforms? You use Core Local®.
Core Local® is our service that lets you control your company listings across 60+ local listing partners, including Google, Apple Maps, Bing, Facebook, Yahoo, and Yelp. It is a simple yet effective tool that ensures any updates or information about your business is consistent on every platform. Oftentimes, businesses lose sales because customers find inconsistent business location information across online maps, apps, directories, GPS devices, social networks, and search engines. Fifty percent of small businesses have errors in their listings. If your customers have a difficult time finding your hours, business information, or products, they won’t go with your business. They will find another company with convenient and consistent information across the board. We recognize how difficult it is to juggle multiple platforms at one time. This is why we have one platform that does it for you, and Core Local® specialists available to help.
What Does Core Local® Do?
Core Local® is capable of many things. Not only does it keep track of your information, but it also provides essential insights that can help build your business. Core Local® provides valuable analytic insights for the performance of your listings so you can see what is working and what isn’t. We also offer competitive analysis analytics that shows you how you’re doing in comparison to your competitors. Have you ever received a poor review and not sure what to do? With Core Local®, you will receive email notifications about reviews left on your sites. You will get an email as soon as a review is left. This allows you to respond promptly and fix any potential problems customers are facing. In addition, it can clean up any outdated information and enrich your listings by adding photos.
How Does It Work?
You will log into Core Local® online and be presented with a dashboard. Your dashboard holds all the essential information about your business. It includes the location, hours, services, products, and so much more. For example, if you need to change your store’s hours to holiday hours, it all is done through the dashboard. You will also find analytic insights for the performance of your five custom keywords. As stated before, Core Local® allows you to respond to reviews, which can be done from the dashboard for select listing sites. The dashboard also keeps your business information in a structured format, which makes it easier for search engines to read. The more accurate and consistent your data is, the more credible your business looks to these search engines, which in turn makes them more likely to rank you in local search. You have 24-hour access to your Core Local® dashboard so you can update information at your convenience.
