  • Hello,

    This business would use MC's many available promotion features such as posting business info onto the main page, creating coupons, using the newsletter and blog features among others.

    My business is considered a "remote" business also and currently has 104,000 Google links to it via Merchant Circle. I have only been a member here since mid-2010. This traffic draws world-wide attention to my MC listing, thus my website and ultimately my business itself no matter where I am located.

    So simply by adding content to your MC page and being sure you have linked your website to it, you will begin getting search engine traffic as well as hits to your MC page from consumers who are on the MC site looking for services such as yours.

    Be sure that you have "keywords" in your information that you post to your MC account so you will come up in searches that potential customers of your type of business would use. Be sure that you categorize your business properly too.

    You can also use the networking features of MC to draw attention to your business by asking others to Connect with you. You can do this with businesses in any area, not just locally.

    I would also suggest browsing this forum some more because there are several very good threads regarding how businesses are using MC to promote themselves and also other means they utilize for business promotion.

    Success to you,
    Claudia Beck

  • I know that most search are from mobile devices. So, how can I make sure that I am coming up on mobile searches. Do I need to do something special to my site to cash in?

    im thinking about pulling the plug on my services
    Merchant circle doesn't work for me.

    Don't you have a customer service phone #?

    • Hi Geoff,

      You are obviously welcome to do whatever works for you and your business. I am not sure which services you are paying for, but most of our merchant members are very happy with the "Plus Package". We actually don't have a free line for customer service, but do offer the community forum, help center, twitter & fb, and also email support. Our team consists of a little over 30 employees, so these methods are the only way we can reach and also respond the level of inbound inquiries we get each day.

  • Hi David i think that you should focus on google bing yahoo. If you have a profile with merchant circle just make sure it is complete. Start using it as a blog only until you see some organic raisings. Thats when you should start to expect more. I am also a little frustrated with all the products the are trying to sell,and understand that they have to sell products to stay in business. The bottom line is i purchased hero ads from them recently. I dont know if they are working yet. I did this because for 9 months now they have been helping my web site grow organically free and I feel I owe them for that. Willbanksdesign.com las vegas
