I’m Featured. Now What?


This is Farhan, the founder of Vverge.com.

Congratulations again for getting featured at Vverge.com

Now what? What’s the benefit, and how do you get the most out of it?

That’s what we’re going to discuss today. Keeping it short and super actionable.

(If you’ve received an email from us, and can’t see your business listed, get in touch.)

Review your Blurb for Accuracy

The content team published your blurb live after proofreading, and editing.

There is always a chance of human error on our end too.

The best practice is to review your business listing in the article and ensure accuracy.

Email back to me if there are any changes required.

Businesses are Listed Alphabetically (by default)

All the businesses are listed in alphabetical order to be fair to everyone.

Everyone is an equal winner. No exception.

It’s based on merit, and there is NO cost attached to this.

Link to your Website

We don’t link out to any business website by default.

We can link out to your website for a one-time $50 investment.

Please note that only the businesses already listed (on merit) are qualified for this offer.

Most of our articles are ranking on the top pages of Google for all the relevant keyword terms.

A link to your website from our articles can drive targeted organic traffic to your website that actually converts.

This backlink holds huge SEO value as it’s coming from a 100% relevant article. (Professional SEOs understand this)

Get your Business Listed at the TOP

Like I said earlier, all the businesses are listed in alphabetical order by default.

But we do offer sponsored placement.

It’s a one-time $150 investment.

Premium Placement is the top spot in the article.

It ensures your business is viewed first by our blog readers.

It includes a link back to your website, and the contact number (unlike organic listing).

Business at Sponsored Placement benefits from highly targeted traffic, leads, and SEO value.

Show off the Exclusive Award Badge

You should have received a beautifully designed award badge from us.

(Get in touch if you haven’t already received it)

Show off the badge on the home page of your website.

Use it anywhere on your branding material.

You may want to link out to the source article at Vverge for social proof.

Some businesses have even put it on their vans, trucks, and storefronts.

Blog About It

Do you have a blog or news section on your website?

Just publish a blog post about it, or announce it in the news section.

You obviously want to share that blog post or news piece on social media.

Press Releaase

It’s a perfect press release case.

A press release to the local newspaper, and media can get you a few mentions there.

And a lot of exposure.

Honestly, it’s a hit, and miss, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t cost anything.

There is always a potential to be picked up by a popular media house, or publication.

Share on your Social Handles

You must already have some following on social media.

It could be Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn, or any other.

Share the news that you’re featured at Vverge among the business in your locality.

A lot of your fan following, and customers would love the news and congratulate you.

It doesn’t have to be a one-time thing.

You can schedule to share it again in a few weeks to a month time period.

Those who have missed the post this time may see it next time.

Share with your Email Subscribers

Nothing fancy here.

If you’ve some email subscribers.

Share the news with them.

BTW. What links do you share on social media, and these email subscribers.

If you’ve published a blog post or news piece on your site, you obviously want to share that link.

That’ll not only put the word out but give your own site a bit of exposure.

Otherwise, you’re always free to share our article link where you’re featured.

Influencers Shoutouts

Do you know some influencers in your industry or locality?

Are you close enough with them to request a shout-out?

Great. This is the best opportunity.

It won’t obviously fit everyone’s case but may work for some.

Wrap Up

We’re constantly learning to help promote our featured businesses.

Is there a marketing strategy that works really well for you?

Please share it with us too. We’d love to cover your story.
