GoDaddy Helps Small Businesses Get Found Online
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --(Business Wire)--
the world's top platform for small businesses, today expanded its
product portfolio with the introduction of Get Found, which helps small
businesses attract new customers on popular destinations, including
Google (News - Alert), Yahoo, Facebook and Yelp.
How many times have you tried to contact or visit a local business only
to find out their phone number or physical address is out of date? Using
GoDaddy Get Found, businesses can publish critical information like
location, phone number, hours-of-operation, as well as service lists,
menus and photos on search engines, social media, top local sites and
mobile apps. Additionally, having updated and accurate information
across various popular websites increases a customer's visibility in
search engine results.
When consumers search for businesses and see inaccurate or conflicting
information, they often go elsewhere. When a business signs up for Get
Found and provides their business location, services, contact
information, etc., the correct information is automatically pushed
everywhere. Business owners are then also able to track where their
business is showing up online and verify the correct material is
Customers using Get Found1 at launch will be showcased on the
Web, mobile sites and apps, including Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yelp,
Foursquare (News - Alert), YP (Yellowpages), Citysearch, TripAdvisor, OpenTable,
Local.com, Judy's Book, MerchantCircle and MojoPages.
Go Daddy Get Found is an evolution of the Locu product, which GoDaddy
acquired in August of 2013.
"An average consumer uses more than two different online sources when
looking for information about a business, and when they see missing or
conflicted information, they usually go to a competitor," said GoDaddy
Vice President and General Manager of Discovery Mareting Products Rene
Reinsberg. "Businesses miss potential revenue when they can't be found
online, and we are making it drop-dead simple for them to get onto all
the top websites."
Cucina Rustica Owner/Manager Lauren Cirafesi, a Get Found customer,
"People tell me all the time they found our restaurant on Yelp (News - Alert),
TripAdvisor or OpenTable," said Cirafesi. "If we didn't show up on these
sites, we'd lose business to a restaurant down the street. In a place
like Hilton Head, competition is fierce and incorrect business
information could be the difference in a successful night and a flop.
Get Found helps put my business everywhere it needs to be on the Web.
"With Get Found, I can also easily change my hours for holidays or
special events and whenever we have a restaurant special," adds
Cirafesi. "So I never miss out on a potential customer."
The innovative Get Found product is the subject of GoDaddy's new
Super Bowl commercial featuring Danica Patrick, which is set to air
in the second half of the big game.
