The Perfect Business Listing on Free Merchant Network
A perfect business listing on Free Merchant Network is one that will be a one-stop source for your business customers to locate your local business online and find out information about you. Below are some simple tips to keep in mind to ensure that your business gets found on Free Merchant Network and also on the search engines.
Correct Contact Information
First and foremost, it is very important to make sure your profile has the accurate contact information for existing and potential new customers to contact you easily. Free Merchant Network has taken the necessary steps to add your business to our site, but the information may not be 100% accurate. If a user can't contact your business, you have potentially missed out on a possible customer.
Be sure to show all of your business contact details such as street address, city, state, zip, phone number, fax number, and website address. Providing a valid address allows Free Merchant Network to display an appropriate Google map so customers can locate you easily on your business profile page. Also, be sure to provide an e-mail address when you are claiming your business listing. Your e-mail address WILL NOT be displayed on our site. Rather, a contact form has been created and once the form is submitted, it will be sent to you.
Provide A Business Description
By providing a full business description will attract customers. Give a summary of what your business does and also a brief history about the business. By providing a description, part of it will be displayed in search results on Free Merchant Network and may even be used in search engine results.
It is important for customers to know when you are open. That is why we offer an area where your business can input your current hours. Not only do we have hour input for all seven (7) days of the week, we also provide an area where you can display what holidays you will be closed. This is just another way for customers to know when you are open and when you are closed.
Show Your Products & Services
Free Merchant Network provides businesses with ten (10) fields that can filled in to display what products and services that the business features. Allowing customers to see what products and services are offered allow them to make a conclusion on whether your business will be one that they contact.
Businesses have the opportunity to create and display valid coupons for their business. They may list up to three (3) coupons on their business profile page. If one expires, it will no longer be displayed. Coupons are a great way to entice customers to come to your business.
Business coupons have a chance of being displayed on the homepage! This will be one of the first things visitiors will see!
Submit Latest News
Free Merchant Network provides an area where businesses can provide their latest news. They may display open houses, new products, and any other news worthy information on the business profile. This allows customers to stay in touch with what is going on.
Social Media Links
Be sure to list your social media links. Free Merchant Network offers an area where businesses can input their links to the Twitter and Facebook accounts. This is yet another way for customers to reach you.
Provide A Logo To Remember Your Business
Display a business logo on your business profile so customers will remember your company. If they recognize your logo, they will remember what your business is all about.
