Local Search Marketing Explained
We are witnessing a slow death of the traditional methods of reaching potential customers through the outdated Yellow Pages, print media and expensive television and radio advertising.
Today, to get your business or service in front of people you need to be where they are looking and that is on the internet. Over 80% of people searching for products or services start on the internet using search engines such as Google, Yahoo or Bing. Google is by far the largest of all the search engines so we will concentrate on them throughout this website.
According to a Piper Jaffray 2008 research paper, 30 percent of all queries contain a town, city or postcode. With 2.6 billion local searches performed each month, the Internet has now surpassed print Yellow Pages and newspapers as a primary source for local consumer service information. The adoption of smart phones will only add to these numbers, currently 27% and rising of all mobile searches are for local information.
Local Search is predicted to grow by 400% by the end of 2010
It’s no good just having a website. It is in fact invaluable to your business to be on page 1 of Google. It’s a well know fact that very few users go beyond page 1 when searching for anything on Google. So if you want to make an impact, gain new traffic and customers then you need to be up there with your index listing.
What a lot of people don’t know is you do not need a website to do this! However, we highly recommend you do have an online presence in the form of a website to maximise your return and establish your business on the internet.
You website can convey important information about your business such as opening hours, parking facilities, maps, address, contact information, directions, products, services, photographs, videos, sales, special offers and money-off vouchers etc.
Blend Local Search Marketing can maximise your business exposure by dominating the entire page 1 of Google using your local search keyword terms and phrases.
If you share page 1 of Google with other competing businesses in your sector you still only get part of the market share. By completely dominating it you get the lions share.
