You may not have a "business", but would you
like to show off your creative talent or useful service?
- Are you a stay at home mom, who makes jewelry on her free time? Do you want to expand your hobby and possibly make money from it?
- Are you recently laid off and working on a start-up project? You may not have your own website, but you can list in the directory to get it going.
Your hobby, craft, or skill can go beyond "word of mouth". The directory is a great tool for networking or showing off your skills and create more income for yourself. You can also search for those in similar fields to connect with them.
As anyone starting a new business knows, getting it off the ground can be a challenge. There are so many responsibilities involved in starting and running a business properly, from coming up with start-up costs, finding reliable suppliers for merchandise, and getting your name "out there".
You can spend quite a lot when it comes to marketing your business. That's where Long Island Life comes in to help. List in the Long Island Life Small Business Directory and promote your "brand", and get scene. Visitors to this site are not only from Long Island, they are from all over the world!
Social media has become a necessity when it comes to marketing your business and creating a buzz about what you do. When you list in the directory, visitors will be able to "like" your directory submission on facebook and add comments about their experience with you! This is a free way to find business. In November, 2011 Google announced that they are now indexing facebook comments. So your business name mentioned on Facebook can be found on google search results. So get your friends to visit your directory listing and "like" it.
Benefits of adding a listing:
Exposure: If you don't have a website, a listing in the directory will create your online presence. If you do have a website, your listing can direct people over to you site.
You get your own page, which will be posted in the Long Island Blog and on facebook.
Please note, I do not endorse any particular listing - it's not possible for me to use and review each service. That's where visitor comments come in. You can scroll to the bottom of the listing to add your reviews and comments.
There are two types of listings
A basic listing allows you to have a full page listing. You can add all your details and make the page as long as you want.
A premium listing allows you to also have a full page listing and
- Allows a live link back to your website
- An interactive Google map
- No ads anywhere on the page
- Up to 4 photos
