It also means that competitors will be able to know what you are up to per time, depending on the information you put out. Considering your options carefully, the benefits this outreach offers outweighs its disadvantages. Today, we’ll be looking at some local business directories where your company’s profile needs to be on if you want to make real time progress.

4. LinkedIn company listing
LinkedIn is a very simple yet powerful platform to push your business to the next level.
Someone once said LinkedIn is not a place where you find every Tom, Dick and Harry. You’ll only find people who are ready to give value and getting your company listed there means it will get the attention of serious people only. LinkedIn offers premium and paid services but if you do not have the resources for the paid service they offer, you can still maximize the free offer. You can get started by signing up at linkedin.com.
