Creating a listing with a local business directory should be a key tool in your business' online marketing. A local business directory helps to increase your leads and generate more work or sales. An online business directory listing can work with or separate to your company website to help boost your online presence and allow customers to easily find you.

Previously your only choice for a local business directory was a printed one. Now, the internet has replaced the printed local business directory and opened people up to a wealth of information that is easily accessible whenever they need it. Having your company listed in a local business directory is an economical and clever way of boosting your company’s online presence.

Why choose the goguide® local business directory?

To understand why you should use goguide®, you have to understand why we created it.

We’ re a local business ourselves, we’ve used the other local business directories out there. The result, we weren’t happy. We wasted time and effort on directories that simply didn’t do what they should - generate leads to create more work. Their advertising options were overpriced and they under delivered.

We decided that enough was enough. We looked at what these bigger local business directories were doing, how they were doing it and thought we can do that and we can do it better and for cheaper.

With goguide® there are no hidden costs. The prices you see are what you pay.

We have strived for a online local business directory that is a simple and economical way for businesses to get in front of the right customers within their local area. We are so confident in what we do that if you’re not happy we don’t lock you into a contract – you’re free to try something else.

Listing your local business on the Australian goguide® local business directory gives you a compelling and economical solution to increasing your business’ exposure to a targeted local audience.

The goguide® local business directory headquarters are based in Melbourne, but we have offices in every major Australian city. The local business directory itself covers all cities and towns around Australia, which mean no matter where you are, your customers will be able to search you in goguide®.

All of our local business directory listings are submitted to the major search engines such as Google and Bing, which means the more content you are able to provide the more likely it is that your listing will appear in their search results.
