Studies have shown that over 85% of people use the internet when they need to find a service or product from a local business. It’s quicker and easier for them to use search engines to find what they’re searching for. Once a potential customer has found your business, they are likely to search for trust signals such as reviews and online testimonials from other recent customers.
Without having good local search visibility, your potential customers are going to see your competitors instead of your business. They’re the companies that are already investing in local SEO strategy and that is probably the reason that they are outperforming you in the local search results for the services that your local business provides.
Local SEO is more important than ever nowadays, virtually no one searches for businesses in print media such as local newspapers, Thomson Local and Yellow pages. Even the Yellow pages (Yell) website ranks poorly in Google. That’s because they are a middleman. Google’s goal is to serve its users the fastest way to local services.
Having a strong local search presence has to be a priority to your business. You need to leverage all tactics and marketing channels at your disposal to stay ahead. A strategy covering Local SEO, Google my Business and Social Media is what you need to ensure your site occupies maximum visibility in local search. Staying toe-to-toe and leapfrogging with the competition.
Local businesses need to harness the power of online search to communicate the local relevance of their products or services to attract more business from local customers. Typically, local customers are far more likely to purchase or enquire from your website if they found it using a localised keyword search. Local SEO can make such a difference in attracting and winning new business.
