Here are some questions that would cross your mind when you listen to the word “Directory Listing Website”:
Business Directory Websites are places on the internet where different businesses can add themselves in listing and can advertise and promote their business.
Your website contains useful information for visitors about quality, features, pricing of products and services from various business owners that customers need to know.
Customers pay. Yes, you got us right, you own a Reputed Directory Website, so you can charge for listings in your website and your customers would be happy to pay.
Depending upon your niche selection and type of customers, you can get a good amount per listing.
The main factor behind your charges is “How well you rank on Google and if it can generate leads for your customers”.
If you have a ranking local site then you can get even $1000 per month from one customer.
Suppose you have 500 customers and they pay you only $100 per month, it means you get $50000 per month from your single website alone.
