    Any ideas how to get businesses to add their business to my directory?
    I just finished my directory and it looks great but is like a ghost town. I get maybe 4 businesses a day adding their business.

    Any ideas how to get a lot businesses to add their business for free or cheap?

    The business directory is a free service that is why I can't afford to spend a lot on it.

    Go to Facebook and LinkedIn and contact businesses.

    Tell them of the benefits of putting their business in your directory. You can tell them that every month/week, you feature a business and you submit the content to social networks thereby increasing their business exposure.

    If you don't already, you can have several ad packages the business can upgrade to.

    You have a lot of options.

    I'm not sure about the nature of your directory, but at first with any community you have to put in a lot of effort to building it yourself.

    Add as many entries to your directory manually as you can: use yelp, facebook, other websites, etc. to find their info and enter it by hand or use a virtual assistant.

    Noone wants to be on an empty directory, cause no visitors want to go to an empty directory. You'll need to manually reach a critical mass before the directory will be self-sustaining with new signups and a significant amount of traffic. Maybe after you get to that point you could charge for premium listings.

    I've found this article to have really good advice about this topic: http://paulgraham.com/ds.html

    Hope this helps, and good luck!

    I'b be more than happy to add my business to the directory and spread it to friends if the directory niche matches. Just send me the site so I can check it out. Otherwise, use social media and SEO to boost your site's presence on the internet.
