Well, its been a long time, and welcome back! Please excuse the deafening silence for the last, oh, 5 years! Can it really be that long??
Well, the good news is that The Brownbook has been performing almost flawlessly for 5 years without much attention on our part. That’s down to the original fully-automated and self-service design that we created. Its like a factory with an automated production line, every now and again we drop in the ensure the lights are on and the machine has fuel, and actually thats all its needed to keep running.
But, its time for us to step back in and give it a little love. What we’ve found over the last 5 years is that lots, and I mean MILLIONS, of people find value in adding their businesses to Brownbook. OK, the design is a bit dated (but we’ll fix that soon), but the mechanic remains as true today as it was when we started it 7 years ago. Getting listed on Brownbook HELPS your business get found. Its not about people searching on Brownbook, its the citations that Brownbook provides to your business, and that helps you get ranked highly in the top search engines, like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ask, and more.
This post is a brief one, but, over the next few weeks we’ll be making some major revamps to the platform, including making available a public API for adding listings.
The Brownbook remains the LARGEST business listing database on the planet; with more than 35 million listings its THE GLOBAL BUSINESS DATABASE; if your business is not listed in Brownbook, do it now, its totally free for small businesses, and it helps you get found online, and that equals more business and more money in your pocket.
So, standby for more news and more frequent updates from this point forwards. At least rather more frequent than every 5 years.
Lots of love to you, Marc and Dave
