Why should I promote my business via Business Finder?
Business Finder is an established and trusted brand with international coverage. We offer good value for money SEO and all the benefits of Gold or Platinum membership.
Why is internet advertising better for my business than advertising in other media?
There are several reasons, including:
a) Price: A year’s advertisement in Business Finder will cost roughly the equivalent of a single advertisement in your local newspaper.
b) Duration: Your Business Finder advert is available on the internet for the duration you paid for. Radio and TV adverts are aired in moments and then gone. Newspaper adverts are only available until the paper is thrown away.
c) Audience: Your internet advert with Business Finder is available to anyone in the World with Internet access, an audience of billions. Other media cannot compete with this.
d) Searching: Your Business Finder advertisement brings customers to your door because they are already searching for a business like yours. Nowadays, the majority of people searching for a business or service they need use the Internet rather than any other method.

I have my own website, so why do I need to be registered on Business Finder?
Having a website is a great way to convey information to potential customers. However, in order to reach your target audience with your website, they have to know it exists. They can find out your website address from your literature or sign writing, but that depends on their having some pre-knowledge of your particular business. Your Business Finder SEO data will increase your exposure to anyone searching for your type of business or trade on the Internet.
My business belongs in an Adult category, can I register it on Business Finder?
Business Finder is a family-friendly directory and therefore does not include Adult or X rated businesses. We would recommend you register your business on our sister website, www.cherryindex.com, which is an adult only SEO directory.
What is “Verify Your Agent” all about?
People are understandably cautious about dealing with telephone callers. We take security, including that of our clients, very seriously. Designed to give our clients peace of mind, “Verify Your Agent” is our way of enabling you to verify that the person on the other end of the phone is a genuine representative of Business Finder. We always encourage you to insist on verification when dealing with anyone claiming to be from Business Finder.
What are Keywords and how can I use them to optimise my listing with Business Finder?
Keywords are a set of words that people who would be looking for your business would enter into the search field. Different people will run different searches for the same type of businesses, so we allow our clients to set a large variety of keywords to cover all possible searches that they would like to appear under. By optimising your keywords your listing will receive more hits, which you can monitor by logging on and viewing the statistics for your listing. Your account manager will be glad to help with optimising your keywords.
