I get asked all the time, “What is the cheapest way to get my business online?” I believe, still, that it is some sort of local search campaign, not a website. In fact if I had about $200 to spend on a setup and about $99/month, I would go with a company that performs that service before I even built a website. It works well for companies with site, but it works nicely without one as well.
Can you do this yourself? Yes! You can go to Google and read about how to get your business on the local search results. Yahoo and Bing offer this service as well and it’s free from all, for now.
Truthfully you will get better results having a professional do it as they will also know how to optimize the listing and add your company to the important directories, or even add a video to YouTube that will get google ranking. But if you can’t afford it, at least give it a shot yourself!
Good Luck! Richard Uzelac, CEO GOiMarketing.com
