    Just found this:
    Code:
    http://getlisted.org
    Type in a local business, such as your local Pizza shop & its zip code.
    This site gives data on how complete listings are for that business.

    Using a screen shot from this page of results you could prove to said business how poor their results are.

    Check out my local pizza shop (which is part of a chain in Southern California)
    Code:
    http://getlisted.org/snapshot.aspx?eqs=toppers&z=93010
    So, email or show local business this image of their results, tell them they need to claim the listings before someone else does.

    They will be too busy to do it and wont know how..thats where you step in!

    Really good idea, anything that slaps proof in front of their faces has to be good.

    Just curious, do they collect client data and call it?

    the website seem to ask for full detail of the biz.. I am a little worry bout that giving free leads to them.

    Though this website is not gonna help me because of my geographic location. But what I did was just write a generic term and actually get leads from the site.

    I typed in hair studio and a random zip code. A business with a website popped up. Maybe its time to slap them with this data ;) Just a suggestion
