It’s almost like playing Blackjack outside of Vegas.
Much of the time in cities that “didn’t allow table gambling” they would sprout up “casino style games” at certain test venues to see if it’s worth it. And when the local cities recognized the potential of allowing “gambling” in their neck of the woods, they would have a “variation of the game” with slightly different rules, payouts and overall rules.
Local SEO is very similar in this ideal. Local search engine optimization can be either tougher or easier dependent on the “local competition factor”.
But one this is for certain. That local SEO is more important than ever!
Local SEO services play by a very similar set of rules that regional, national and global would adhere to, but how authority and higher ranking for a business, service or website would be achieved is even more plate spinning task at times, and can actually be more volatile.
Therefore dealing with a local SEO company to address and better understand your business products, services and offerings to your regional and city based customers is imperative if you want to raise your local business in search engines and get more customers discovering you online through a ton of different outlets that cater to local searchers.
Get Found Online Marketing are local SEO experts that get to know and understand your business, and make a plan of action to secure top page rankings so that you can get more phone calls, leads, and walk-in business for no matter what you do, and what type of competition is around you.
Our local online marketing packages include everything that is needed for your local business domination, including but not limited to:
1 – Local Google Map Listings For Your Business
This is something that many companies base their whole local search marketing services on (without doing anything else after that). It’s something that you can actually do yourself. However other lackluster companies may claim your business under a different name, or put incomplete data and even worse not properly list you under the correct Google service categories.
Improper servicing of your local business search listings can hurt your over “Google Local” listings and push you out of the top local spots, and conflict with other information that people may have associated with your business.
Ger Found Online marketing streamlines all the data, keeps it up to spec and makes sure your local Google map listings are complete and correct so that you stand out and have the ability to raise your “local rank” for your business or service.
2 – Local Business Directory Listings for Your Store, Product or Service
Another important aspect to local search engine optimization is the inclusion of your business information to subsequent or “secondary local directories” that affirm your business existence and also correlates with your existing online business profile. Just like your “Google Maps Listings” this information needs to co-incide, complete and officially verified.
This can take a lot of time, or can be an issue in general for most people or business owners because many local directories aiming to reduce spam submissions now require subscription based services by agencies only that are paid to “clean up” and verify that the business information being submitted is correct, complete and consistent. Which is something that a local business owner may not have access to.
Our local SEO company makes sure that we take care of all the fine details, and you are listed correctly in all major local directories.
Some important “SEO enhancing local directories” are:
– Yelp Local Business & Service Directory
– Yellow Pages Local Directory
– White Pages Local Directory
– Foursquare Local Directory
These are just a handful that as a local SEO company provide complete and expedited listing services to our small and local business client.
3 – Local Business Facebook Page Creation & Management
As any type of business owner, you’ve probably heard about Facebook (Actually, at this point, if you are just about anyone on the planet, you’ve heard of it). Having a local Facebook business page is just as important as having the right local business website at this point.
Our local business SEO programs are setup to not only create a complete and proactively branded business page, but it’s also created to help you attract more visitors and fans to your page, as well as build more traffic to your business website. Whether you have or need a doctor website, cleaning service site, or you are a lawyer and need a good potentially ranking law firm website, you can rest assure that we do local Facebook page building for business that not only helps the SEO for your local business but also integrates the fans of your products or services right into your business website.
Alongside the right creation and management, we also have plans and packages to manage your social media. So you can worry about running your day to day business, and we can handle building your fans, like, social engagements and overall business. So let us be your social media manager, and watch us build real results for your local Facebook business pages.
4 – Local Business Reputation Management & Removal of Negative Business Reviews
Just as strong as online marketing can be for small and local business, it is truly a double edged sword. Many times we have seen happy, and service oriented business owners and service providers get hammered with negative business reviews.
The question we get much of the time is “how do we remove those negative business reviews“?
Well, the real answer is, is that not everything can be truly “removed” in every shape of the word, however we do have techniques and solutions to help any business manage and rekindle their relationship online.
Our negative business review management and reputation service is provided to not only business, but we even offer personal online reputation repair services that want to get on with their personal and professional lives, and don’t want some past incident haunting their careers, or that 1 irate customer that was more vocal online than the few hundred (or thousand) customers you have helped in the past month or two.
5 – Local Business Website Creation or Test Your Site’s Existing SEO Issues
It’s great to have a business that may be ranking high online for a good handful of your business terms, but it’s a bad day when you are at the mercy of other local online directories or services, that “own your online business profile“.
And what we mean by this is that if your local business does not have a website, then that may be one of the most important issues you have.
Not having a good local business website can mean a few things, such as:
– Your competitor’s actual business websites will rank before a local Google Maps or business listing.
– Yelp may be knocking on your door for “increased exposure” because they are ranking at the top of the internet searches for your business name or service (instead of your own website!).
– You can’t get actual feedback from your fans or customers, because they have no direct way to contact you.
– You business looks less appealing because when they click on your “local business listings” the forwarding links go to a poorly designed public Google plus page or an incomplete unmanaged Facebook page that isn’t properly setup for your business.
And if those weren’t some good reasons for you to get your own business website, then the latter is a very poor business website. A badly designed business website can actually be worse for SEO due to it’s incorrect design or naturally badly programmed website. Something that will not help you in raising your local search rank, and certainly will not impress your potential business partners or customers.
Our local online marketing professionals at Get Found will help you build the best business website for your local business. So you can stop feeling embarrassed of your non-existent, poor free Wix site, or anything else that doesn’t hold your business in that shining light amongst your competition.
