Improve Your Business Listing

A Visual Guide to Making a Great First Impression

Your business listing aims to bring you sales. 

To do this it needs to make a great impression with potential buyers. 

Your profile needs to tell buyers everything they need to know to place an order… today!

It needs to convince them that you are someone that they like, know and trust. 

In this tutorial we’ve got 3 visual examples of how you could complete your business listing; Bronze, Silver and Gold. 

The visuals are a guide to how you can take your listing from basic (bronze) to glittering with promise (gold). 

Bronze Level

  • Nice logo & high quality cover image.
  • Descriptive tagline.
  • Basic company description and “Visit our website” call-to-action.
  • Categories & tags utilised.
  • Contact information supplied.

Cons – lots of details are missing, customers would want to know more before ordering.

  • No gallery images
  • Only gives vague info on products.
  • Description is basic and doesn’t provide many details or credentials.
  • No ‘how to order’ information so forces potential buyers to do more work to find out more. 
  • No catalogue link included.
  • No order from link included.
  • No formatting or spacing used on business description, which makes it harder to read.
