17 Ways to Make Money on a Website | Part 5 - Business Directory
Company entries/business directories are among the most often visited parts of websites.
I would recommend using both free entries and paid ones, which provide more options (e.g. complete with multimedia).
How much should it cost? Depends on the market and the size of the website.
In Poland, the leading position is held by Trójmiasto.pl, which has over 42,000 businesses in its directory at https://katalog.trojmiasto.pl/!
They charge 59USD/year for an extended entry and 119USD for a premium one. Can you also count? I am impressed by such a stream of revenue!
Remember - Control Your Business Directory
TIP: What to keep an eye on? Control who adds their entry into the directory - make sure there are only companies from your region there. Otherwise, SEO agencies will take advantage of it and your website will become a free link farm...
