    Changed Business Name

    I have a client who changed their business name.

    Yes...it's a huge problem.

    With them not having logins for all the major sites like insiderpages, foursquare, citysearch,merchant circle and others.

    Would I consider something like yext? I just don't want to get locked in, then when we potentially leave we lose it all.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Mike!

    I would make sure to start with the major aggregators (Infogroup, Localeze, Acxiom and Factual) before anything, so MozLocal would be best for that if you don't have individual agency accounts in those platforms. Its $84/yr/listing.

    I think Yext would also be a good option since they have duplicate suppression. However, I wouldn't use them if you may leave down the road. If you mean your client may leave down the road, not you or your agency, should it matter? I know that's not that best way to look at it, but ultimately if the client is leaving you, sometimes that comes with repercussions. Although, you could set up Yext with their own account and manage it for them, that way you can just hand it over to them if they leave.

    Otherwise, the best and most accurate way to do it, is manually.

    Hey Mike,

    These manual update projects are a lot more work than they seem on the surface (30 to 40 hours on average). We have a service that will do the work for you. Admittedly, it's a bit pricey, but it's run by the best in the business (Nyagoslav).
