Never pass up a free local listing: Alignable

A free local listing with product details.

You may have heard of this website, Alignable, that connects local businesses and encourages networking. The website gets light traffic, but is recognized by Google and offers you an opportunity to connect your name with search terms for the products and services you sell.  In addition to the free listing, it also offers you a way to connect to related small businesses that could become referral partners.

Your account is personalized by a logo and a header. Be sure to add these by clicking the camera image within the image. You can choose to use a photo instead of the logo if you’d like to present yourself more personally. Lastly, adjust the email preferences as shown below. Go do it! 🙂
