Great way to get your business seen online and in your local marketplace


onlineIn today’s increasingly online world having your business visible to potential customers online is essential for businesses of all sizes.

However, getting yourself seen in a crowded market can be a challenge for many small businesses. A listing in the local business directory can be a great solution to this problem.

Norwich based company Traded Network provides a local business directory that is currently being listed in over 85,000 online search results every month. Why should a business bother?

Well, according various sources:

• 85% of internet users search for local businesses online.
• 61% of local searches result in a phone call.
• 9 out 10 people call or visit a business they find in a local search.

Jonathan White, Managing Director, explains “We have a range of plans available within our directory and any business can list themselves for free. We also have 4 paid for plans levels where we provide ongoing marketing support to a business.”

There were over 5 million SMEs in the UK in 2015 – making up 99% of all businesses.

However, according to a report by domain supplier GoDaddy last year, many small and micro-businesses are lagging behind in the digital race.

They found 60% of UK businesses with five employees or less don’t have an online presence and the main reason given was that they thought they were too small to warrant a website.

MD Jonathan said “With our directory appearing in such a large number of search results, it provides an excellent platform for businesses of all sizes to reach a wider customer audience.

From regular targeted social media activity to website content and SEO. With over 89% of the UK population having internet access, it has never been as important for a business to be seen online.”
