The Foundational footprint is using the key tools that are provided my the major search engines for your customers to find you online.

There are some very specific ways to optimise these business listing that will help you rank well and help you gain advantage in your online space. With a few key strategies your listing could be ranking in the top search results for your highest profit products and services.
For most businesses Google my business is the far most valuable tool available. Whilst results vary around the world, in Australia it may account for up to 90% of customers search results.
There are other business directory listings that can give you great results too such as Yelp and Bing, so it’s worth taking the time to make these listings look their best.
If your audience is outside Australia I recommend that you use Yahoo as well.
