It is especially important for businesses that offer a service, like inspections, to claim and maintain their directory listings. These listings are a means for potential clients to contact you and make the decision to hire you instead of a competitor. Although it may seem like a no-brainer to claim and clean up your listings, as you add services, relocate, or change your contact information, updating all of your existing listings can be easily forgotten and more time-consuming than you expect.
Inconsistencies, inaccurate information, and unclaimed listings will negatively affect the growth of your business. For instance, there are several popular websites and search engines that generate a listing based on a user’s input, and if your business has a listing you’re unaware of, it could contain incorrect contact information or erroneous service categories that could be causing you to miss out on prospective inspection projects.
