About Business Buddy

We see Business Buddy as a platform where businesses can add their business (as a listing) to improve their online visibility, ultimately giving them a fair shot at competing with their competitors.

Before Business Buddy, we had to rely on that one person that “knows a guy”. Now anyone can be that one person, making it easier to find whatever you need, just a Search, Click and Call away.

We allow you, as a consumer, to be the first to find the awesome new restaurant that just opened in your area or a great electrician that won’t rip you off. We understand that you don’t need to pay a fortune to find great businesses that offer incredible service.

 

We are committed to helping you find exactly what you’re looking for by offering you up-to-date contact information (updated by the business owners) of local businesses across the country, and user-friendly features like direct messaging and directions.

You’ll also be able to rate and review the services you choose, adding value to the business and enhancing the next user’s experience.

 

Apart from helping consumers get better service, we want to give all businesses a fair opportunity to compete with competitors in their industry. We are even more passionate about giving small businesses, in South Africa, the opportunity to be seen by their potential customers, and be recognised for providing great service.

Business owners can list their businesses on Business Buddy to improve online visibility and marketability.

 

We have found that many business listing websites in South Africa that offer free business listing limit the amount of information you can share about your business, which can make your listing look less appealing compared to paid business listings. Paid business listings are usually expensive, but we have changed that!

On Business Buddy, there’s no hierarchy. All businesses (big or small) are treated equally and only differentiated by ratings and reviews.
