The Local Prospecting Tool is designed to help you identify which businesses in your market can benefit from being listed on your directory website. It also enables you to quickly add their listing to your site with just 1 click. Here's how it works:
STEP 1 - Start by entering a keyword or industry and your location. You can then set the radius you would like to search.
- Examples for Keyword or Industry searches include: restaurants, painters, plumbers, accountants, automotive repair shops, beauty salons, daycares, etc. You can also refer to the categories on your site for the types of businesses to search for.
- In heavily populated areas, it's often best to start with a smaller radius search.
- Try changing the keyword or changing the location to a nearby city or zip code to get more results.
STEP 2 - Our Local Prospecting Tool will deliver a long list of nearby businesses with their contact information. You can use this information to reach out to them and pitch them a listing on your site.
STEP 3 - Now that you identified which businesses are your best prospects, you can create their listing with just a few clicks. Simply click "Create Listing" next to the business name after choosing a plan, primary category, and selecting whether or not the listing should be claimable.
- In our Local Prospecting Tool, we define a "prospect" as a local business that matches the proximity and keywords you input in your search.
- The businesses produced in our Local Prospecting Tool are no more likely to purchase a listing from you than any other business you may find using a different search method.
- Each search is limited to a maximum of 3 pages of results at a time.
- While we aim to keep the data accurate and as up-to-date as possible, we rely on third-party data sources, and make no claims to the accuracy or perceived "quality" of the business information listed and will not be held liable for any information produced or not produced by the Local Prospecting Tool.
- Prospecting Tool usage is limited to 500 queries per month.
