Business Listing Submission

How many sites have your business information listed incorrectly or missing entirely?

As many as 40% of business listings online are inaccurate, incomplete or missing.*  This could be you, meaning that consumers searching for your business aren't getting the information they should be, costing you potential quality leads.

Registering and validating your business listing information across a multitude of sites online takes valuable time and effort.  Let SureWest Directories submit, verify, and manage your information on all major search engines, directory sites and more with Local Listings Builder.

Digital Display Advertising

Be where your customers are looking!

Put your business in front of consumers where they are looking: the web. Display Advertising allows you to target your interactive marketing message on all the top news and entertainment sites to reach specific audience segments most likely to show interest in your brand.  Follow customers already interested in your business by retargeting as they surf around the web.  Build brand awareness and stay at the top of the minds of consumers, near you, with specific demographic targeting meant to put your business where potential customers will actually see it. 

Other companies can target your ad to a general "designated market area." Display Advertising takes it to the next level by narrowing your market areas down by individual zip codes and specific audience segments to make sure you're targeting exactly the people you should be.
