The Local Directory provides well-categorized business listings covering a wide range of targeted business industry sectors. We aim to bring consumers and service providers together within a clear, engaging and easy to navigate online platform.
Our well-structured database ensures that, as a consumer, you can easily find the small businesses that offer the goods or services you require. Alternatively, if you are a business, you can be assured that by being featured on The Local Directory, you significantly increase your chances of being found by your target audience.
As a leading source of important information for small businesses, we also offer a business education section for to aspiring entrepreneurs interested in starting a small business and running it successfully. In addition, we regularly feature quality articles based on relevant topics that can help companies with their online marketing campaigns. These include SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), social media marketing and online marketing and advertising.
As a consumer, you’re free to add details of companies you have recently transacted with. You can grade them with a star rating and also add a personal recommendation should you choose to do so. Doing this will allow others to learn from what you have said about companies they might be considering doing business with.
With a dedicated review section, we help small businesses harness the power of online customer reviews. Positive online reviews are highly regarded as a major asset for online companies because consumers today only want to buy from the best, and will often base their purchasing decisions on independent, online reviews.
With this in mind, the aim of enabling online reviews on our website is to help satisfied customers spread the word about their favourite companies. This can help prospective customers discover highly rated businesses in their local area and help them make smarter choices when shopping online.
If you’re an online business looking to increase your organic search ranking, then registering your details on smallbusinessuk.com would also help with your website’s ranking on the search engines. This is due to the level of trust our website currently enjoys on the major search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo.
