10 ways to turbocharge your listing
Follow these tips to ensure our member directory works well for you.
1. Fill in all the sections
Listings that do best have all the elements filled out. Make a note to source what you don’t have, for example testimonials.
2. Choose the right categories
Add your business to all relevant categories, and avoid posting in ?other? if you can help it.
3. Choose great images
Remember they will be shown around Flying Solo. We strongly encourage you to include a headshot as those using the Flying Solo directory want to see the people behind the business. Also when you upload your slogan, be sure it?s legible.
4. Add a video
If you have one, embed a video of you and/or your business in action to show the world. People love video!
5. Share it with your social networks
Help your listing get more traction by spreading the word amongst your own community.
6. Add a link to your member directory listing
A link on your own website’s ‘About’ page is both informative for your visitors and will give your listing a backlink, which Google loves.
7. Ensure your listing is optimised
Talking of Google, the search within the directory is primarily keyword based, so to appear in the directory results your selected keywords must appear in your business description. If you have specific keywords that you are hoping to rank for, cross-check to ensure these are being used in your listing.
8. Promote your directory in your forum signature
If you participate in our forum discussions (which is also terrific for profile-raising) be sure to add a link across to your directory listing into your forum signature.
9. Review your listing
We recommend diarising a check up of your member directory listing every three months to make sure all the details are up to date.
10. Ask for help
