Here is an internet marketing secret most people ignore: get your business in Bing Places (Bing Local). While you might think nobody actually uses Bing, you would be wrong! Bing is the default search on every iOS device sold in America. If you talk to Siri, or use spotlight to search, you are using Bing, and that’s a significant amount of traffic. It would be foolish not to add your business to their local listings. It’s free. Free advertising is ALWAYS good.
You have to have a Windows Live ID to create the listing, but that only takes a few minutes to set up, so don’t use it as an excuse.
Make sure to take advantage of all the category and services fields, just like on Google Local, the more information you provide, the better your listing will work for you. For instance, instead of just saying “handyman”, spell out “tile repair, cabinets, faucet installation, etc.” Really use the space they provide to get specific to capture more of your potential audience.
Bing verification is pretty much like Google’s, they’ll send you a postcard to validate your business.
Take 10 minutes RIGHT NOW and add your listing. And if you don’t already have a Google local listing, add one of those immediately, too!
