If you have a brick and mortar business that is physically located in a particular area or a business that offers services to a particular area, a top or best local SEO company may be just what you need to get you the revenue that you want.
Local SEO is all about making sure that when people are looking for the kinds of products or services your business offers, they see your website before they see your competition’s. If you do not have one of the best local SEO companies working for you to get you on top of your competition’s rankings, there is a good chance that the businesses that do have this are getting potential customers in their virtual door i.e. their website, before the potential customers get into yours.
Brand recognition has always been an important part of marketing campaigns and it remains so today, but in this age of the internet, your brand and website need to be much more than just recognizable and attractive to look at. Business websites need to be highly user friendly and compared to their competitors, have the best local SEO available. Without these and other important aspects of SEO applied to your website, there is a good chance that your competition will get potential customers and clients to visit their website before yours because they ranked higher in Google and other search engine searches.
Local SEO is the New Yellow Pages
The Yellow Pages of phone books used to be a staple in American households until the internet and smartphones replaced landline telephones. And while the expression yellow pages is still globally recognized and used in online applications, physical phone books with yellow pages are less and less likely to be found in American homes. Key reasons for this are the prevalence of homes that have internet connections and, perhaps even more so, the increasing numbers of Americans who have smartphones that give them access to the internet any time of the day or night in almost all places.
If you think about it, what is the first thing you usually go to when you are looking for a particular kind of business near where you live or work? If your answer is the internet, you are like a majority of Americans who use the internet multiple times, if not constantly throughout the day and you probably have not used a physical phone book with a yellow pages section in many years, if ever in your lifetime.
The numbers are in and the yellow pages are out. 97% of people who are looking for local services and 82% of smartphone users, use search engines when they are looking for a local business- and the way to connect your business to potential customers before your potential customers connect with your competition, is to have a good local SEO company getting you at the top of searches for your particular products or services.
