As well as making themselves easy to find, businesses listed on UK Directory can also give visitors all the information they need in order to take advantage of their services.
(PRWEB UK) 15 August 2012
UK Directory, one of the UK’s leading sites for business listings, has been relaunched this month with the aim of helping UK businesses of all sizes boost their online presence.
The well-established site has been comprehensively redesigned and now boasts a whole range of new features, making it a more attractive prospect than ever for local businesses wanting to be found online.
The site’s new layout makes it incredibly easy for users to find the services they’re looking for, as businesses are searchable both by their sector, and their location. By using the site’s local listings, users can search for businesses by region or, if they need a service especially close to home, they can filter results to include only those within their own town or village.
As well as making themselves easy to find, businesses listed on UK Directory can also give visitors all the information they need in order to take advantage of their services. Alongside a description written by the business, listings also give users a range other vital information about the company, such as their opening hours and accepted payment methods. Users are even able to see the business’ precise location on Goggle maps, which, given the local focus of the directory, is likely to be nearby. Contact details such as the business’s own website, email address, fax and phone number are also displayed.
UK Directory has been online since 1995 and, in the world of business much has changed in that time. Social media, for instance, now plays a huge part in the way businesses market themselves. As a result, the site’s listings now include links to all of a business’s relevant social media profiles, be it a Facebook page, a Youtube channel or a Google Plus account. Indeed, businesses can even have their latest tweets feed through to their listing, meaning that, if they have something special to shout about at any given moment, they can make sure those viewing their listing will see it. From a user perspective, these features make it that much easier to get a real feel for the company they’re looking at. On top of this, businesses are also able to show any industry awards they’ve won, or professional associations they’re members of.
Businesses don’t need to use the service exclusively to blow their own horn, however. Now, thanks to the customer review feature, they can have their satisfied patrons do that for them. Positive reviews can be displayed on a company’s page, giving reputable firms an indisputable public seal of approval, whilst tight editorial controls means that ‘trolling’ or incendiary comments will never be published.
