Although there are plenty of free directory opportunities out there, some directories charge a fee to include your business in their listing. Regardless of whether it is a premium or free listing opportunity, every directory needs to be evaluated on its own merits. Some directories may also let you list more than your name and contact information, so be sure to ask whether your listing can include a logo and other information about your business.
