Location search on mobile phones is at an all time high — and as a professional marketer, you work hard to make sure your clients succeed amid constant change. Today, we are incredibly excited to bring you a new, free tool designed to help you grow your business and quickly demonstrate the value of clean location data to your clients: the Location Scan app.
The free Location Scan app is available to professional marketers everywhere (no Yext account necessary) and enables you to put our PowerListings® scan technology, which has been used more than 8,700,000 times, right in your pocket, so you can grow your business on the go. You'll scan local business listings from across our full PowerListings Network (including Google, Yahoo!, Bing, Facebook, Foursquare and more), and help your clients to identify errors and inconsistencies clearly in their location data.
Here's how it works:
1. Scan nearby locations – start by finding a nearby business, or enter a client's location data, to scan their local listings.
2. View listings stats and details – right away, see how that location appears on Google, Facebook, Yelp and 60+ maps, search engines and directories.
3. Share Location Scan results – show your clients what needs fixing. Share scan results via email, text or social media.
4. Partner with Yext – become a Yext Certified Partner (if you're not already, that is) then head into the Yext platform and put our patented Match & Lock technology to work for you — solving those issues that the scan has uncovered.
We designed the Location Scan App so that professional marketers like you can bring your clients' location data problems to life, no matter where you are. The app is yours to use — Yext will not contact the businesses you scan. We'll continue to enhance this app over the coming months. So check in with us here for more information.
