We are delighted to see all the businesses getting the chance to open fully again. It has been a challenging time, and I am sure there has been many changes to your business in the last two years. In a long list of admin duties that you have, I would like to add one more to the list….. but this could be the one that drives customers to your business.
If you have a business listing on our website, it is the perfect opportunity to review your information and ensure that all the details are correct. Make sure to check your opening hours, web address, contact details and location. You may also want to update the listing with new photographs or branding. Before you upload an image, make sure you have permission to use the image. Many businesses are being fined for breach of copyright. If you upload pictures without copyright, you will be liable for any fines that we may receive. Some great resources for free images are Shutterstock or Pixabay , or head outside with your camera and create some images of your own.
If you are a new member to Donegal Women in Business Network, or have not put up your listing yet, we’d like to give you every opportunity to promote your business by asking you to upload your business details to our website. It is one of the key benefits of joining our Network. People like to work with members of the Network, and their first point of call is to search the listings on our business directory. By adding a business listing to our website, it allows you to get free promotion for your business. Members of Donegal Women in Business Network have found it to be a powerful tool to reach customers. If you are not there, you can’t be seen!!
Having a business listing will increase your search engine optimisation and ensure that you are visible to potential customers. If your business has a website, you can increase your digital footprint by including the link. It will make it easier for customers to find you, and direct more traffic to your website.
For those without a website, being present online and having contact information available opens up a market to your that was previously unavailable. If customers search your business, they will be taken directly to your listing on our website. It allows you to have a digital footprint with no financial cost to you.
Take the time to add your business, click the link here, sign into your account, and go to ‘add listing’ to create a new listing, or ‘my listing’ to review your existing details.
