Free Publicity: Help Your Customers Navigate to Your Business

Have you listed your business on Waze, Google Maps and other navigation apps?  These are free and simple ways to help your customers find your business when they’re nearby.

Ten years ago, having your company listed at the top of Google’s search engine was relatively easy – and affordable.  Now, securing top billing is much more competitive and expensive.

There are many other ways to reach customers now – whether on Yelp or even Waze, the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app.

Did you know you can list on Waze for free?

Similar to having a sign up for your business on a busy street, having your business listed in navigation apps like Waze will help more people “see” your business, even when they probably should be looking at the road.

Millions of people are using Waze daily, yet very few businesses are currently listed.  So, by listing your business, you’ll be ahead of the curve and positioned for success.

In addition to Waze, make sure your business is also listed on other navigation apps like Google Maps.  If you don’t have time to do this yourself, our mobile team can help.  To set up a time to talk to one of our professionals now, click here.

Tip: If you haven’t already, download the Waze app.  Use the app to help you navigate traffic to and from work.  Once you arrive at your destination, Waze gives you an option to take pictures of your business so visitors know what to look for when they arrive.  Do this!  This option enables you to select the photos that represent your business.
