Howdy, I'm trying to update basic information in Express Update and they keep steering me to the paid option for bulk update. Before I engage with them I'm curious what kind of cost we're talking about here. I'm in-house for a larger organization and we have about 250 locations. Does anyone have experience with this?

We currently have an Express Update account for 57 locations and the annual cost is $45 per listing.

I'd recommend looking around for partners of the aggregators. There are packages which include Infogroup, Localeze/Neustar, and Factual for under $50. .

Thanks for the info folks! It seems like the least impactful sites are the most expensive :(

There is another option but it involves doing the work manually. I do not know if Express Update handles the submission differently internally then an automated bulk submission (faster updates, etc..).

You can claim & verify the locations through the available free search here ... https://www.expressupdate.com/search

Like others have said, there are companies out there that could help you do this at scale & keep it affordable. It really depends how you manage the locations. Are you using a tool like Yext to manage the 250 locations or are you keeping everything manual?

Depending on which route you go, there's an easy option to handle what you need on a few different platforms.
