Fixing your business’ citations will be one of the most powerful things you can do to grow your business.  It’s free, it’s easy, and doesn’t take much time.

If you’ve never done this for your business before, you may find you have to fix your profile on 10 or more sites.  Do not lose faith or get  demotivated.  Instead, make a simple plan, and whatever you do, keep going.  Try claiming and fixing 3 of your profiles each day for a week.

The good news is, most of your competitors will not know these strategies, and so something as simple as the tactics above could be the thing that gets you on the map and gets your phone ringing.

If you’ve made it through each of the citation sites, and want more easy steps to grow your business, keep an eye out for our upcoming guides on getting reviews, optimizing your website to rank, and others.
