Business Marketing with a MapQuest Listing
You may think that MapQuest is all about driving directions, but there’s a marketing opportunity here just waiting to be tapped. Yes, MapQuest is a source for maps, routes and travel information, but they also provide business listings, and can drive traffic—no pun intended—to local restaurants, retailers and service providers.
According to MapQuest, one in five Internet users visits their site, which can translate to high visibility for businesses. Plus, MapQuest is automatically tailored for local establishments; only people in your region are likely to see your listing.
There are three options for listing on MapQuest. The basic option is free, and allows you to post details such as business hours, phone number and a link to your website. You may also add photos and videos, as well as helpful information such as parking advice. One valuable feature is the ability to move your marker on the map so that it points to your precise location, helping consumers find you more easily. MapQuest verifies every listing via telephone or credit card. They won’t charge the card for a basic listing, but do run an authorization to confirm your identity.
A premium MapQuest listing costs $99 per year, and enhances visibility. This option includes an in-line promotion that appears with your search result as well as on your details page.
If you’re serious about getting your name out there on the Web, the MapQuest Multi-site Premium Listings package may be your best option. For $399 per year, MapQuest will promote your business not only on their site, but also on other local search engines such as Yelp, CitySearch, Yahoo, LOCAL and Yellowbook. This package covers multiple platforms with one fell swoop, simplifying the online marketing process.
At the very least, small businesses should maintain a free MapQuest business listing to ensure that users see the correct information. And given MapQuest’s high profile, the return on that $99 or $399 investment could make the premium options worth it.
