Local SEO Services
In just the last five years, the number of smartphone users in the U.S. has grown from 62 million to a staggering 175 million. This incredible growth will continue to dramatically impact our buying behavior. What kind of opportunities does this increase in consumer purchasing power provide for your business?
While print marketing is headed out the door, local platforms like Yelp, Google My Business and Bing are increasingly used by people searching for products and services in their vicinity. Purchasing decisions are made “on the go,” and nearly half of us buy something from a business that’s brand new on our digital radar. By optimizing your local listings, customers find you before they can link up with your competition. With the power of our Local SEO services, we help you:
Bring in local customers who are ready to buy
While people browse on their smartphones deciding where to grab their lunch or get that service they need, your local listing pops up. Tap into the growing smartphone and tablet trend – and position your business to capture those sales ahead of your competition.
Become the talk of the town
Local customers begin to recognize your brand when they find your listing in multiple directories – and that makes them more inclined to do business with you. After all, familiarity maximizes important customer levels of comfort and confidence.
Increase your website’s ranking in search engines
Optimizing your local listings supports SEO efforts that elevate your website’s ranking in search engines. Together, SEO and Local SEO create a powerful combination for brick and mortar stores that want to boost traffic and sales through their websites.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What are local online business listings?
Remember the once popular Yellow Pages that we flipped through looking for businesses in our area? Local online business listings such as Yelp, Google My Business, Bing Places and Yahoo! Local are modern-day, online versions of the Yellow Pages. In addition, these listings give your customers the opportunity to read and write reviews about your company – and give you a platform to engage with them.
My company is already listed online – How do I benefit from Local SEO?
There are more than 100 local listing options depending on your area and industry, and you benefit from their collective connection with an enormous audience. Are you using all available local listings? Are you keeping your business information up-to-date? Trends in local listings change quickly, and some listings even allow users to modify information. It’s quite a task to do it all yourself. We let you focus on your customers while we manage your local listings and make sure your online presence is on-point – all the time, everywhere. Our dedicated Local SEO strategists do all the work while you take care of business.
Is it important to have a lot of reviews on my local listings?
Yes – reviews certainly help! The power of the internet has transformed word-of-mouth stories with limited reach to reviews of your company that can be read by anyone anywhere, anytime. Next to this, multiple reviews show solid customer engagement with your company, and that supports your website’s search engine rankings. Our advanced local SEO packages also take care of your online reputation, and manage your reviews. Contact us for more details.
