Controlling your digital details

May 9, 2017 - advertising digital advertising local business

While researching ways to ensure our online guide and local business directory continues to be functional and cutting-edge for our advertisers, I stumbled on an interesting article.  From the Financial Times, it outlines how errors in digital business listings cost US companies $10 billion in annual sales.  The article is from a few years ago but it seems to still be relevant.
