7 December 2016 -- Singapore -- The world of a business directory revolves around the print and digital properties owned by the business directory, sometimes known as a Business Intermediary. Ever increasing competition is challenging traditional business directories with offerings like AdWords and SEO.
In the contemporary world, the business directory normally expects the prospect to access the directory first. This is becoming more and more difficult unless the directory is very unique.
The business directory customer always has multiple options, sometimes referred to as omni-channels, to connect with an SMB. The directory is just one of these many options. As a result, only a limited number of SMB’s actually pay the business directory for services.
Business directories have two types of customers – paying customers (typically 5% to 10% of the database) & free listings (the bulk of the database). Business directories need to carry free listings – there is no choice.
However, business directories generally have feet on the ground with an active sales force and channel partner network.With contacts across many segments, the business directory has its pulse on the marketing needs of the SMB sector. Verified leads with buying intent delivered by an inbound call are on every SMB’s wish list.
