    I agree wholeheartedly! Building a good set of well organized, accurate and owned directory listings isn’t that hard, but it’s time consuming and really needs a little forethought before going out randomly and cherry picking what you think are the best ones to spend your time with. The best reasons to invest the time or to have an SEO firm handle it for you are:

    1. To be sure your correct and complete information is being published across the web. This way, any listing someone used to learn about your company or get in touch with you will be a positive experience.

    2. Branding. It’s great to have many impressions of your company name on the first 5 or so pages of search engine results. Why be listed once or twice when you can be listed 3 or 4 times… per page!

    3. Ownership and control of the listing. Of course, true ownership is still with the listing company, but by claiming, you’ll have the ability to keep it current, respond to reviews, add images, videos, coupons, special offers, blog posts, etc. All that content helps broaden your presence online.

    Okay, so it doesn’t seem that difficult to do this, and you might have time in the evening to knock a few out a week… That’s a good strategy! Why then would I want to involve an SEO person? Well, just like making a good hamburger, there are many ‘little’ things that go into a well managed and executed strategy that will pay dividends in the long run.
