Hey,\n\n\n\nThis is Farhan, the founder of Vverge.com.\n\n\n\nCongratulations again for getting featured at Vverge.com\n\n\n\nNow what? What's the benefit, and how do you get the most out of it?\n\n\n\nThat's what we're going to discuss today. Keeping it short and super actionable.\n\n\n\n(If you've received an email from us, and can't see your business listed, get in touch.)\n\n\n\nReview your Blurb for Accuracy\n\n\n\nThe content team published your blurb live after proofreading, and editing.\n\n\n\nThere is always a chance of human error on our end too.\n\n\n\nThe best practice is to review your business listing in the article and ensure accuracy.\n\n\n\nEmail back to me if there are any changes required. \n\n\n\nBusinesses are Listed Alphabetically (by default)\n\n\n\nAll the businesses are listed in alphabetical order to be fair to everyone.\n\n\n\nEveryone is an equal winner. No exception.\n\n\n\nIt's based on merit, and there is NO cost attached to this.\n\n\n\nLink to your Website\n\n\n\nWe don't link out to any business website by default.\n\n\n\nWe can link out to your website for a one-time $50 investment.\n\n\n\nPlease note that only the businesses already listed (on merit) are qualified for this offer.\n\n\n\nMost of our articles are ranking on the top pages of Google for all the relevant keyword terms.\n\n\n\nA link to your website from our articles can drive targeted organic traffic to your website that actually converts.\n\n\n\nThis backlink holds huge SEO value as it's coming from a 100% relevant article. (Professional SEOs understand this)\n\n\n\nGet your Business Listed at the TOP\n\n\n\nLike I said earlier, all the businesses are listed in alphabetical order by default.\n\n\n\nBut we do offer sponsored placement.\n\n\n\nIt's a one-time $150 investment.\n\n\n\nPremium Placement is the top spot in the article.\n\n\n\nIt ensures your business is viewed first by our blog readers.\n\n\n\nIt includes a link back to your website, and the contact number (unlike organic listing).\n\n\n\nBusiness at Sponsored Placement benefits from highly targeted traffic, leads, and SEO value.\n\n\n\nShow off the Exclusive Award Badge\n\n\n\nYou should have received a beautifully designed award badge from us.\n\n\n\n(Get in touch if you haven't already received it)\n\n\n\nShow off the badge on the home page of your website.\n\n\n\nUse it anywhere on your branding material.\n\n\n\nYou may want to link out to the source article at Vverge for social proof.\n\n\n\nSome businesses have even put it on their vans, trucks, and storefronts.\n\n\n\nBlog About It\n\n\n\nDo you have a blog or news section on your website?\n\n\n\nJust publish a blog post about it, or announce it in the news section.\n\n\n\nYou obviously want to share that blog post or news piece on social media.\n\n\n\nPress Releaase\n\n\n\nIt's a perfect press release case.\n\n\n\nA press release to the local newspaper, and media can get you a few mentions there.\n\n\n\nAnd a lot of exposure.\n\n\n\nHonestly, it's a hit, and miss, but at the end of the day, it doesn't cost anything.\n\n\n\nThere is always a potential to be picked up by a popular media house, or publication.\n\n\n\nShare on your Social Handles\n\n\n\nYou must already have some following on social media.\n\n\n\nIt could be Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn, or any other.\n\n\n\nShare the news that you're featured at Vverge among the business in your locality.\n\n\n\nA lot of your fan following, and customers would love the news and congratulate you.\n\n\n\nIt doesn't have to be a one-time thing.\n\n\n\nYou can schedule to share it again in a few weeks to a month time period.\n\n\n\nThose who have missed the post this time may see it next time.\n\n\n\nShare with your Email Subscribers\n\n\n\nNothing fancy here.\n\n\n\nIf you've some email subscribers.\n\n\n\nShare the news with them.\n\n\n\nBTW. What links do you share on social media, and these email subscribers.\n\n\n\nIf you've published a blog post or news piece on your site, you obviously want to share that link.\n\n\n\nThat'll not only put the word out but give your own site a bit of exposure.\n\n\n\nOtherwise, you're always free to share our article link where you're featured.\n\n\n\nInfluencers Shoutouts\n\n\n\nDo you know some influencers in your industry or locality?\n\n\n\nAre you close enough with them to request a shout-out?\n\n\n\nGreat. This is the best opportunity. \n\n\n\nIt won't obviously fit everyone's case but may work for some.\n\n\n\nWrap Up\n\n\n\nWe're constantly learning to help promote our featured businesses.\n\n\n\nIs there a marketing strategy that works really well for you?\n\n\n\nPlease share it with us too. We'd love to cover your story.
