PurpleBiz Review – is PurpleBiz right for your business?
When I first heard the name PurpleBiz, it reminded me of the concept we learned about in sales; to be a “purple cow.” The idea being that you have to stand out from your competition. Indeed, PurpleBiz stands out from the competition. There is literally no competition. Not even Google, the online giant that specializes in Local Business Listings.
Let me tell you why:
- Local AND International
PurpleBiz isn’t only an International Directory. It is local as well. When you make a listing, you can add a map (from Google Maps) on your business profile. This will help you to be found Locally as well as internationally. This will help your business tremendously. Imagine being able to showcase your business to anyone who may benefit by your products or services.
- Excellent Presentation Possibilities
Not only can you write about your business, but you can show as well. Upload your video or embed it on your listing, and give an excellent presentation which everyone can see. Not only can you add video, but you can add brochures and graphics. You can also add press releases and news of your business that has been published in newspapers and online Press Release sites. I have made a Google search, looking for competition so I can include it in my review, but I can’t find anything that I can compare to PurpleBiz. In all the directories I found, they only had links to a website. With PurpleBiz you can get an excellent listing that can stand in for a brochure type website, so you can get started online without a website.
- Different Languages
When you upgrade your listing, you can show your listing in up to 10 languages. This is excellent if you have a Network Marketing business that operates in different countries. You can send them to your company page, and they can choose their language from there. This will be well worth the upgrade.
If you have a business that you can take to an international level, this will benefit you as well. Imagine the possibilities if you can have large orders from other countries.
- Get Found on page 1 in Google
Large Directories have a large volume of content and traffic. This helps them get found in the major search engines. Do you know how long you have to work at your website to get the same results? If you know what you’re doing, at least 6 months. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you may never get there. This alone may be a good reason to upgrade. At the smallest upgrade package, you pay $250 per year. At $20 per month ($25 if you pay monthly) it’s already cheaper than paying for a domain name, a hosting provider and autoresponder. Startups would be wise to invest in this while they get their website started. They would have results almost instantly.
- Direct Marketing
You can market directly to the customers or clients that find you online. If you are a Business to Business (B2B) business, you can find your clients right there on the PurpleBiz Directory. When clients find you on the PurpleBiz Directory, you can add them to your list and send them offers and updates. It is a great place to meet people.
Here are the different packages:
I know the owner of PurpleBiz for a while now. When I asked him what prompted him to create this business his immediate answer was: To help businesses be profitable and to create work for people who need it. I stand behind this man and his ideals 100%.
If you want a place to really showcase your business, head over to PurpleBiz and create your listing. Be the purple cow that stands out. Even at the startup package it is worth the investment.
I hope that the PurpleBiz Review helped you, and that I will see your business listed on there soon.
