Why do submissions to Data Aggregators cost more than manual submissions?

Mathew Coghlan -


Data aggregators charge local businesses per location for their service, this is becuase they provide data to many data different sources at once making life easier for the local business. On the other hand all of the manual submissions we make are free to submit to. Our fees for manual submissions are based on the time we spend submitting the data for you- because each of our manual submissions are made one at a time, this can take a fair amount of time - this is why we're now trusted by our customers to submit over 10,000 business listings a week by hand, so they don't have to.
