As far as buying into the hype that these "experts" know how to highlight your business better than you would, I would think twice prior to signing up. Often times I find that those in the business have more of an expertise in their business than "expert" submitters. The one advantage they may have is when choosing "keywords" - but more often than not these submissions provide tools or ideas for you to choose from to submit them yourself.
In addition to getting your free listings, you should try getting exposure elsewhere on the net where user interaction is essential. Such as destination sites like Twitter, Niche Forums, Local City Groups, Neighborhood Blogs, Flickr and other locally targeted online sites. I'll get into how those services are beneficially to local businesses in a future post.
Give local business submissions a shot for yourself, if you feel overwhelmed then ask others before paying for a service which is essentially free.
