Architects, Architecture Companies, and Firms: List Your Firm in an Architecture Directory

When a potential client, searching for an architect or architecture company or firm, sits down at the computer and searches ( either terms, “architect listing” or “architecture company,” they are likely to find several sites that offer architect and architecture company directories.

I sat down today and performed such a search.

What I found were eight directories that provide either free and/or annually paid “upgraded” subscription listings ranging from $7.95 to $100.00 per listing.

If you’re looking to increase the amount of traffic to your architecture firms’ practice, thus increasing your revenue, add your firm to these eight listings – a perfect first-step to attaining higher visibility.

Furthermore, many of the sites listed below offer the option to list your individual architecture or architecture company’s website. If you haven’t already established a website, or hopped on the Internet bandwagon, you’re trailing behind your competition.

Display your works more effectively – visually that is – and discover how your practice can boom when potential clients can view your previous work. Contact Global Site Plans to learn how low-cost and cost-effective a website can be for your architecture business.

Now, here are the eight directories you should immediately add your firm to (Left link is the homepage and right link goes directly to adding your firms’ listing to the directory):

Local) and Google Places and Google Maps (You must have a Google account to sign in and add your business).
