Mobile website leader Telnames expands offering with launch of local listings management service for small businesses

Telnames customers can now benefit from automatic submission of their core business data to UK online directories, local search engines and business listings publishers


London, United Kingdom, October 8th 2013. Telnames (http://www.telnames.com), a leader in self-service mobile-friendly websites for local businesses, today announces an extension to its popular service with the launch of the Telnames Partner Network, delivering automatic submission of core business listing details to participating online directories, local search engines and business listings publishers.

This new local search listings management service is being provided to all Telnames UK business customers free of charge. When businesses sign up for a Telnames .tel mobile website, Telnames will now distribute their business contact information along with their .tel site URL across a network of significant local search publisher partners including Bing, Yahoo!, BT, Scoot, 118118.com, 192.com, Local Mole and many others. Telnames captures all the relevant data from UK businesses that online directories need during the customer sign-up process, and provides this data capsule to Partner Network member directories and local search engines via an automated and regularly updated feed.

The Telnames Partner Network is constantly expanding as more and more partners come on board. Many UK businesses that sign up to Telnames are new to these directory listings or are listed but without a website URL. With the Telnames Partner Network businesses can be assured of maximising their inclusion in local search results with an easy to use single page website designed with mobile users in mind. Previously, companies have had to create their own website, make it mobile-optimised, and then submit it to the directories themselves. Many businesses have found this process time consuming and a hassle so they have not bothered with it resulting in their business not being fully listed or appearing without important website content putting them at a disadvantage in the UK local search web.

Telnames’ Chief Marketing Officer Ian Bowen-Morris comments: “By coupling quick, easy and low-cost mobile-friendly website creation with local search listings management, Telnames is providing a disruptive solution that will boost online directory content and help small businesses generate sales leads.” He adds: “The benefit of Telnames and its Partner Network is two-fold – giving our customers the ability to do something previously expensive and time-consuming at very low cost and very simply and, crucially, offering local directory and search publishers access to many previously unlisted businesses whilst providing a rich source of new local search information that will improve the depth and breadth of search results and content that they serve to the public searching on all devices at home or on the move. It’s a win-win solution and we’re looking forward to welcoming many new publisher partners on-board as we expand our network.”

The Telnames Partner Network local listings service is included within a customer’s annual Telnames low cost subscription. Businesses don’t need to take any further action to benefit, all that is required is a .tel name that is well-populated and ready for customers to visit and make contact.
