Tour Of The Platform
Let's take a deeper dive into each tool of the Simply Be Found Platform
Simply Be Found is a marketing platform that may be used by a local business owner or assigned to someone on their team, such as a manager or employee. Its simple design and simplicity of use are well known; nevertheless, it’s powerful enough to help get local businesses found by local customers. We have combined the right tools for getting the most from your LOCAL SEO and our proprietary algorithm makes it easy for you to understand what steps you to need to take right from your to do list each week.
The To-Do List, Health Score & Snapshot
Simply Be Found was built around being simple and focusing on what tasks you need to do to bring in the best results for your business. One of the biggest things Rob Downey, one of our co-founders, has heard from being in the marketing space for over 20 years is to give me a to-do list and what I need to do each week, and I will knock down it out. Our algorithm is based on just that; creating you a step-by-step to-do list each week based on what action items will bring you the best results.
Right from the first page within the Simply Be Found Marketing Platform, you will see your health score, to-do list, and analytics that matter for your calendar month. Giving you an instant snapshot of what needs to be done, what is working, how to fix any issues, or just a solid plan to get your business found by more local customers.
The Simply Be Found Marketing Platform gives you the power to get your business on voice search and makes it easy for your information to always be up to date without the need of logging into multiple networks to update your business information.
In the last few years, more people are using voice search to find local businesses; some studies have suggested 8 out of 10 customers are now using voice search. In addition, customers who search for convenience and quicker results increasingly use voice search assistants like Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant, Cortana, and Bixby.
Since launching Simply Be Found, we have found that many businesses are losing out on being found by voice search and that most business owners have no idea even where to start to get their business on voice search. So we make it simple to fix that and start getting found by voice search.
Advertise On Our Ad Network
Advertising your business using your business information has never been so easy. Simply Be Found uses your business information to advertise on over 50 networks. Every time you make a change to your business hours, address, phone number… we will automatically send this information to our advertising networks.
Advertising with data allows your business more opportunities to be found within your local market where it matters the most to your local business. Let Simply Be Found help your business get found by more local customers.
Review Generation & Management
Reviews are still one of the most powerful things when it comes to Local SEO. 8 out of 10 people look at reviews before making a decision on where to get a service done, buy from or even to pick a restaurant. Simply Be Found has taken the approach to make it simple to create a way for you to share anywhere you want customers to leave a review about your business from one place that then your customers can choose where they leave the review that works best for them.
We monitor your reviews that happen on Google My Business and let you reply directly from our platform. These will be tasks as well on your to do list as new reviews come in.
Showcase your reviews directly on any website and only show the reviews you would like to display. Most of our members choose to show all reviews above a 3 star rating on their website.

People use voice search, search engines, and looking for businesses in different places at home and the go-to to find out their hours. There is nothing more frustrating than looking up a business’s hours to find out when you get there. They have changed. Simply Be Found has seen this issue with the pandemic more than ever.

Industry Specific Tools
Restaurant - Menu's
Let’s face it; the pandemic changed restaurants entirely, not only for how customers are looking for your business but on how they want to access simple things like your restaurant’s menu. We see over and over restaurants that want to take a photo of their menu and post it, and yes, that works in some cases, but you cannot change your menu on the fly when you’re out of products because of supply change issues or whatever reason that may come up.
Simply Be Found lets you input each item on your menu, and you can choose to include a photo or not; once you submit these will update your website with the most recent information, Google My Business and Bing*.
