Some listing directories (Google My Business, for example) allow users to edit listings directly through their website. However, prior edits will be overwritten by the new edits once you connect the listing to our system. Therefore, to ensure consistency in business information across all directories, we recommend making any and all changes through Direction Local once you’re signed up (pro tip: it’s easier that way too).
Setup is fast and easy. We have an easy to walk through platform that allows you to navigate from one section to the next. Feel free to reach out to support to answer any questions you may have.
