Local Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Why is local SEO important?
- Increases the local reach of your brand,
- Grows online community (locally), and
- Drives relevant traffic through publishing and syndication of compelling local content online.
Tip #1 – Mentions & Reviews
Increasing online mentions and positive reviews of your brand will help grow your future customers’ visibility. Over 75% of online users will never make it to your website, but they will check you online. The more mentions you have in these social media channels helps you gain more relevance and visibility on these websites. Connecting with brands and influences relevant to your business will also help you be more visible in search engines and social networks. This digital marketing strategy combines social media and content marketing with search engine optimization.
Tip #2 – Use Your Data to Your Advantage
Every business has data that can help you be more successful with your digital marketing results. We use digital intelligence to narrow down the options for developing a regional and local snapshot of your business about your competition. Becoming one of the most relevant results in your geographical area (on desktop and mobile devices) becomes a lot easier when you have data that maps out how to do this. Geo-specific content will further localize digital marketing efforts to increase brand visibility on mobile devices and local search results. (Get a Free Local SEO Digital Intelligence report below!)
