So much focus on local businesses
Recent studies have shown that 84% of product searches on the internet have a local indicator like a city neighborhood name in them. More and more searches are done in the local section of search engines. Google Places, Bing Local, Yahoo all have sections that are “map driven” (a map is used to narrow the location of the search results). There are also several important websites that are focused on local business. Some are national like Yelp, but others are more location specific like Kudzu.com is for Georgia. Now with more and more smartphones in the hands of consumers and executives, there many apps focus on finding local goods and services.
Having a presence at a large number of these websites can be a huge advantage for a local business that has previously had trouble with competition from national wholesale websites. But only if your business can capitalize on this growing trend.
Paying customers are looking for someone that sells what you sell where you are.
Are they finding your business? If not, then we can help. We have several packages designed at getting your business found when people are looking for the goods and service you sell, in the areas you sell them.
Micro Local Marketing Package
This package is our starter package. If you’re looking to get your foot in the door, get it done correctly the first time and save money, then this package is for you.
We will work with you to gather all the relevant information about your business that can be included, like your hours, exact address etc. Then we’ll submit this information to these search engines following their guidelines and using the format they expect. Then we’ll work with you on the easiest and best verification methods.
Not only does this save you time but it also ensures the process goes smoothly. Because when this process doesn’t go smoothly it can take quite a bit of effort and several weeks of back and forth with the search engines to get it straightened out. It’s best to get it right the first time.
This package is not for businesses that already have listings that are inaccurate and need fixed.
