    Localeze Enhanced Listing?

    I have a client who has a mess of citations. Wrong addresses, old associates, and staff members associated w/ listings.

    We're going to claim their listing w/ Acxiom's Business Listing Manager and Infogroup but would like to know more about Localeze's Enhanced Listing service.

    It's $297/yr.

    Re: Localeze Enhanced Listing?

    Hi Chris
    I'd like to learn more about all 3 of these as well.

    Just to let you know; I had conversations with Localeze and actually went through the process and became an authorized channel partner. This was about 6 months ago. It looks like they have since merged or consolidated with Neustar.

    I never actually used the paid model but I was able to negotiate a much better fee. If i were you I would contact them and try to get authorized at a much, much lower fee per listing than the $297.

    Re: Localeze Enhanced Listing?

    Hi Chris,

    I've used the Localeze Enhanced service before. If you are considering it for the sole purpose of helping clean up listings I wouldn't bother.

    We have done quite a lot of testing and we have concluded that doing an enhanced listing won't clean up data issues on the directories that it feeds to. Especially if it has to do with duplicates.

    It does have it's benefits though.

    Here's a PDF I found that shows the speed of data updates at major local search engines:

    Thanks Colan,

    That timeline is such a great tool. I've had to show that to a few clients whose expectations needed to be reeled in when it comes to cleaning up bad listings.

    You would have seen that at Local University NYC, right?

    I believe we were sitting at the same table.

    Re: Localeze Enhanced Listing?

    Yep- that was me.

    I can't recall where I saw that. I guess that's where I did.

    Correct me if I'm wrong- but Localeze doen't offer a basic package anymore? Right?

    Re: Localeze Enhanced Listing?

    Last I checked they do.

    However, the e-mail that the account is created with has to match the business e-mail of the listing that's claimed in the account. Plus it has to be phone verified. Last I checked, anyway.

    So this would be another benefit of having a paid account. You can claim and enhance until the sum comes up without having to do any phone verification.

    Re: Localeze Enhanced Listing?

    Feeding into all these databases on a premium manner is the right answer for sure - it gets you trusted source status, but you should also look at having owner verified listings (claiming) on all the key sites as well such as Google+Local, Bing, Yahoo, Yelp etc to lock out errors that creep in. This can be a lot of work, scheduling with the clients - at UBL.org we are getting an increasing interest in the package we offer that goes to all the main databases and uses a team to coordinate the verification for all the main sites (for under 150 bucks total, fyi).

    Hey Chris, welcome and Happy Holidays!

    Thanks for weighing in!

    It may be a little quiet here around the Holidays, but after 1st of year when it picks up again, please feel free to post an overview of all the UBL services in the Tools section of the forum. Screen shots, links, whatever you need to post, in order to share anything members here need to know about your service offerings would be great!
