Can Your Patients Find You Online?

Maintaining accurate and consistent business data across all of your local listings is a crucial component of your online marketing success. Have you ever wondered why some practices soar to the top of search engines, or a newcomer seems to edge out everyone else in the map or local results? Accurate, consistent, and complete data sent to all of the proper listings is the key!

What are local listings?

A local business listing is an online profile that contains your business name, address, phone number, and other details such as your specialty. Examples of local listings include: Google My Business, Yelp, and Bing Places.

To qualify for a business listing you must meet each of the following requirements:

  1. Have a business name or DBA
  2. Have a local phone number that matches the city where you are located (not a shared phone number, toll-free number, or call tracking number)
  3. Have a dedicated physical street address (not a shared address, PO box, or virtual office)

Local Listing Hurdles

Practices, especially those established for many years, face many challenges in the local listing space.
