Online searches long ago replaced the Yellow Pages as “the way to be found” – even in the local small business sector.
Unfortunately, small business owners have businesses to run and a “good ranking” in Google can take quite a bit of knowledge about how the search engine works to obtain.
This means that over 2 BILLION searches in February were related to finding local businesses and information. The question is not whether people are looking for your local small business. The question is if YOUR BUSINESS is one of the small businesses they’re finding.
The good news is that the [current] reality is that most local small business owners don’t need high dollar SEO service or advice on a continual basis. In many cases, hiring an SEO firm to devote continual effort to getting you ranked well for a local search term in Google is like hiring a heart surgeon to give you stitches.
For local business owners in smaller or non metro locales, you can often get your online visibility to increase heavily by doing a one time promotional push of the kinds of things the search engines look for in a local business when deciding which business to rank where and for what words.
Jumpstart Your Online Presence
That’s exactly why we offer a “Jumpstart” service that provides local small business owners with that “push” they need to increase their online presence, while not providing them with (and charging them for) a bunch of services they don’t. For a one time fee, we will provide local small business owners with the following one time services:
- Google Places optimization
- Local directory submission and optimization
- Keyword research
- Recommendations for optimizing your company website for local search terms
- Brand securement on 100 of the top social media websites
We’ll make sure that your business’s page in Google is claimed and optimized. And we’ll not only make sure that your site is listed in local themed directories, we’ll make sure that the page dedicated to your business in those local directories are optimized (Google pulls data from tons of websites like Yelp.com) to give you the most benefit. We’ll make sure you’re targeting the best keywords for your locale and explain to you what changes need to be made to your website to target those words. And we’ll ensure your business has secured a presence on 100 of the top social media sites including Twitter and Facebook.
