If you monitor some of the television commercials, there are sites out there, such as Angie’s List, that offer a free place to promote your business. These sites do see traffic and have a sizeable consumer base to target.
There are also a number of free Yellow Pages-type websites that offer free listings. While these may not generate a ton of business, it is again a reminder that the bots are watching. The more places a search engine can find you the more relevant you become.
Your online footprint grows larger the more listings you have. In the end, it all becomes beneficial and brings online consumers to your virtual storefront.
