Today, we’d like to tell you about a great tool that helps SMBs (Small and Medium Business) put their business on the map and attract customers, free of charge, with Nokia Prime Place.
At Nokia we care about our customers and work hard to deliver a great user experience. In line with this, we aim to deliver great experiences and support discovery and adventures. We have been working with small and medium size businesses since 2010 and now offer primeplace.nokia.com in 20 countries and 11 languages.
Prime Place enables business owners to add their business listing free of charge to Nokia Maps on web and mobile, share opening hours, website and contact details, and add lots of images to show what their business or service is all about, and why you can’t miss to visit! This provides Nokia customers with lots of unique businesses that can be discovered, wherever you are, and helps you to be a local anywhere.
We understand SMBs and know that time and budget to promote your business is often limited. This is why Nokia Prime Place was born. We offer an end to end experience from adding your business listing to the map and becoming discoverable, to enriching your business page with content, like images or opening hours. To round up your business page, we’ll automatically pull in reviews from partners like Qype and TripAdvisor. This gives your business additional credibility.
We keep adding and improving Prime Place features that we believe are of essence to SMBs and to date, are proud to offer:
Account Management – We have introduced users roles (owner, admin, manager) in order to address the need of businesses with a larger number of locations to manage access rights.
Facebook publishing – Businesses can now publish posts about their business(s) to their FB wall or existing FB pages, directly from the Prime Place dashboard.
Secure place verification – To ensure that no-one else claims your business listing on your behalf, we offer a versatile and secure verification system. Businesses can choose between postcard, phone verification and credit card verification in most countries.
Bing Adcenter – Should you decide that you want to give your business that extra boost, then we offer a direct link to Adcenter, where you can create ads to promote your business.
You can join Nokia Prime Place with you small or medium business anytime and for free at primeplace.nokia.com
