Another summer is upon us, and with the nice weather, consumers are bound to be getting out of the house more. If you own a small business, you may be missing out on an easy, cheap method of bringing in these potential new customers. You may have heard of FourSquare and Yelp, but how much have you paid attention to services like these? How much of a return on investment can you experience with a little time? Follow these three easy steps, and it may surprise you.
Step 1. Most services allow business owners to claim their business listings and administer their page. A collection of these links are below. Taking the first step is usually quite easy – once you have claimed your business, you can start to engage with current and future customers. (Limited time? Start with Google Places – the name is synonymous with search, and gives you a great advantage in Google Search rankings!)
Step 2. Once your business is claimed, you usually have the opportunity to create a special and post it. In 10-15 minutes, you can create a special that can be used to attract new and retain current customers.
Step 3. Continue to cultivate these listings and engage with your customers.
