Search Engines are now THE #1 resource people use to find local businesses
Google reports that 97% of consumers search for local businesses online.
Advertising in the yellow pages and newspapers is a thing of the past; customers search for local businesses at the exact instant they need the information. Without local SEO services, you’re missing out on inexpensive opportunities to give your potential customers information about your company in the exact moment they’re ready to walk in the door and buy.
Local SEO services work for every business – big, small, standalone or multiple locations
While many businesses can and do thrive on customers from all over the world, a stunning number of buyers prefer to work with companies in their area, even if the services or products provided don’t need to be provided locally. We always include local SEO into our overall strategy for the front and back end of your website because there’s a human desire to be able to meet with our collaborators face to face, and if you don’t optimize for local SEO, you’re missing out on a demographic that has a built-in desire to be loyal to your business.
