Does your business need more local trade?
Most small businesses forget that the majority of their target customer base is right on their doorstep yet locally, you’re simply not known.
We offer specialist local SEO services that will help you get noticed before your competitors do and grab lucrative trade from customers right where you need them.
Local SEO can be an incredibly powerful and more cost effective tool than traditional longer term SEO campaigns, offering smaller businesses on more modest budgets a great way to gain the exposure they need without breaking the bank.
Should you consider local SEO before thinking globally?
If you’re an established local business and have all of your directory listings and online placements set-up, local SEO may not be the answer. However, if you haven’t fully explored this avenue, targeting your immediate local area should be your first and best option.
Many small business owners forget that their primary market is closer than they think yet forget to spend the required time and energy ensuring these potential customers should be the core focus of attention. Small businesses thrive when they are known locally and have a solid base of repeat, loyal customers. Without those, working life is always a struggle.
No matter what kind of business you run; be it a “Mum and Pop” business, a local store, a service business or a restaurant or café, getting known online is crucial in today’s socially influenced marketplace.
There’s no point thinking globally if you’ve overlooked your immediate locality first. So if you feel you need more customers to literally walk through your doors, perhaps local SEO is the right starting point for you.
Does local SEO really work?
Absolutely! These days, search engines are smart enough to know where searchers are based and thus will see local results when seeking a product or service online. With recent algo changes and the improvements to mapping and local business listings across the board, chances are a local business will be at the top of results when searching using the likes of Google, Bing or Yahoo!
With the massive shift in user trends to handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets, users are always on the move and looking for quick and easy answers to common problems. Many of these devices now use voice commands and are sophisticated enough to understand the users needs when they need something found fast.
Just imagine how great it would be if a customer was in town and searched for the very same product or service your business offers and you popped up on page one of their results? Literally seconds later, they’re walking through your door because they found you online. That is the beauty of local SEO in a nutshell.
How long does local SEO take to start showing results?
The beauty of local SEO is that results tends to start showing fairly quickly. The nature of such work is firstly down the ensuring your website has lots of relevant content relating to your business and catchment area and secondly, is fully and correctly listed in as many places as possible.
Once that initial stage is complete, a specially targeted link building campaign will help to bolster those listings. After which, your natural search engine ranking will improve, helping you to dominate search results. It’s the perfect combination.
