Free Guide: Is your business making a bad first impression?


How many times have you heard someone say…“There’s nothing more important than a first impression.” Or maybe… “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” For better or worse, both statements are true (which is probably why they’ve been repeated so often) – and they’re especially true in business today… with one significant update.

Today, the first impression someone gets of your business is probably what they see when they search for you or your product or service online. The information they find in the search results is their first impression of you…and that might be a big problem.

95% of the people surveyed said they found incorrect information when searching for local business information online. Not exactly a good first impression. People searching found the wrong company name, the wrong address, or the wrong phone number. It’s going to be hard to contact you if your online listings show the wrong phone number.

That wrong first impression could be your last shot at a prospect

It’s easy to see how a few key listings with incorrect contact information could cost you business. 73% of people report losing faith in a local business when they find incorrect information online.

And it’s not just customers and prospects that walk away with a negative impression – Google could lower your search results ranking if you have inconsistent information.

It’s a serious issue, and one that many small business owners are entirely unaware of. That’s why we’ve created a free guide that shines a light on the problem and tells you about a simple solution. Fill out the short form below to download your free guide now.
