Good question, for most directories I use they ask for mobile number to send a message of verification, for the ones which phone you for verification inform the company before hand to tell their customer service people to be ready. I know the bigger the company the more tricky these things get you just have to find out what works best to answer the calls even if they give you a direct number to use.

Step 5: Get free word of mouth publicity using viral marketing. Simply defined, viral marketing is a way for you to spread your marketing message like a virus. You encourage people to pass on information about your site to others, and you use that word-of-mouth publicity to advertise your business. Once you start the "virus," it spreads without you lifting a finger.
Quality First It is easy to buy website traffic on the internet. It can be challenging though to find a reputable traffic provider. For a website owner incoming visitor’s quality must be number one priority. Bad quality untargeted traffic brings low conversion rate. Boot visitors (fake traffic) brings absolute zero conversion rate. VisitorMaker.Com delivers only
Increase brand recognition. Focus on multiple channels so that people see you in many places. People are drawn to what’s familiar. Familiar = Trust at a very primal level in humans. If they saw you on site A, they may ignore you because they don’t know you. But you’ve created a sub-concious imprint in the mind. When they see you on site B or in a search, they are more likely to click on your site because you seem familiar. This effect is compounded by being more places that your prospective customers are. Your channels of focus will depend on what you’re selling. Some of these channels include Industry Forums, Quora, Twitter, FaceBook, Linkedin, Instagram, Blogs, etc.
Target: Every Revisitors campaign is strictly targeted based upon your selected geographic or language target. Our redirection server resolves the geographic location of each visitor (as well as the language setting of their web browser) before they are delivered to a customer's campaign. That way only in target visitors will be delivered. While our geotargeting system is proprietary, results will be consistent with those of services such as the GeoBytes IP address location database (please note that we are not affiliated in any way with GeoBytes).
The first thing in the process is to form a reputable list and from there you would want to start testing each one. Some of them will prove to be better then others, but as I said in the beginning of this article you always need to remain focused on generating organic traffic from the search engines because this is the traffic that will convert better then anything that you can pay for and this is the traffic that will last for years to come without having to spend money on it.
There are several web traffic referral sources. Organic traffic comes from search engines. Referral traffic comes from other websites. Display traffic comes from ads for your business on other sites. Paid traffic comes from promotions via sites like AdWords. Social traffic comes from social media sites. Each type of traffic can be further divided into individual traffic sources. For example, organic traffic can come from Google, Bing, or other search engines. And social traffic can come from a variety of sites.
#6 Go on podcasts! In 13 years of SEO and digital marketing, I’ve never had as much bang for the buck. You go on for 20 minutes, get access to a new audience and great natural links on high dwell time sites (hosts do all the work!). Thanks for including this tip Brian, I still don’t think the SEO community has caught on to the benefits of podcast guesting campaigns for SEO and more…it’s changed my business for sure.
The latest research from Google underscores the importance of having a mobile-friendly website. As consumers continue to spend more time on mobile devices, mobile page load speeds are critical to a good user experience. Over 50% of mobile users abandoning sites that take longer than three seconds to load, but most web pages take a lot longer to load, creating a significant gap between consumers' expectations and most businesses' mobile capabilities.
