    Hi fellas,

    One of my client is asking for Local Business Listing Service. Since, I don't usually offer this to many of my clients, except that I do what they want me to in this process, I don't know exactly what bill him for this complete service. He wants me to register and submit the details where ever possible. What can I offer him and how much should I bill him for the service?

    Please help in this regard.

    MODs: If this is not the correct section, please move this thread where ever needed.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have someone on ODesk etc fill out these general business listings (most should work): Business Listings/Citation Resources

    Then search his competitor's phone numbers/address/business name in Google for more geographically-relevant and industry-relevant citation resources. Whitespark.ca has a good tool for this!

    Hire some one who is good in doing this and ask him to send you a business proposal, you just add your cut in that proposal and send it to your client. :)

    This is magic of outsourcing ;)

    Thanks

    That would be a good idea. I request people to PM me in details about the service along with the proposal, rather than starting a new thread. But, let me know if that isn't allowed to do, so that I can start a thread soon.

    Thanks.

    go to local.com pay $100 they will list u in few good directories
    as far as google u have to do it yourself since it must important and it links to G+ page
    same for bing
    Google & Bing ask for mail address verification..

    good luck

    In addition to the above I also usually hit Yext. There is paid submisssion so you can add it in or you can go down the list for manual submission which is a pain in the rear and will take up your time.

    Yext does automated submission so not sure if they meet the mark. I have used freelance websites like elance and guru. Find the people with the best reviews and you should hand it over to them. Reasonably priced and quality work. I myself have used a provider called labdhie there. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. Before labdhie, i have tried yext, whitespark, and a few more. The kind of flexibility you get using a small company like them is perfect if you are an emerging SEO or marketing company. You can save cost, customize the way you want. This is my suggestion, please keep your inputs coming along.

    does "auto" submission for local seo is not so good after the latest "pigeon" update by google ? due to the fact that it will look same same on many places . although the address and a local phone number is a plus ....

    please help/
