Topix.com is a local news source, forum and business directory which has been around since 2007. Besides business listings, it features local news and events, served up with a side order of celebrity gossip.
Topix may not be a familiar name to everyone, but it packs some clout in the southern and midwestern states where it has a loyal user base. If you’re doing business in or around Kentucky, West Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee or Missouri, you can’t go wrong listing your business on Topix.
There is a catch: There’s no free lunch … and there are no free listings. Topix has partnered with Yext to manage their business directory, which means you need to go through Yext to get listed. The sign up process gives you the option of a single-site listing for Topix for around $99/year.
We suggest you skip that and sign up directly with YEXT for a Powerlistings account. That will enable you to add and manage your business listing on over 50 of the top local sites (including Topix), for a fee that’s a fraction of what you would pay for the individual listings. You can also make changes or update special offers on one dashboard and see your new data go live in hours. Hard to beat that – check them out!
Full Disclosure: I get paid every time someone buys a Powerlisting via that link. It’s not much, but it helps keep the lights on at the blog – and I do think it’s a great service. Ok, end of shill…
