We’re going to let you in to a little secret. The internet has opened up a brand new world of potential for small and medium sized businesses! OK, it’s not really a secret but that does not alter the fact that it is true.
It is no longer necessary to take out a full page colour ad in your local paper to let potential customers know that you are now open for business. With a location based online marketing campaign, you can put yourself firmly on your local area business map.
Local Customers Rely on the Internet
For many small businesses, their ability to grow and be successful is linked strongly with their ability to target customers based within their local area. Landscape gardeners, plumbers, removal services and restaurants are just a few of the businesses which will live or die based on the success of their local area marketing.
Need a little more convincing? According to Google, up to 97% of all consumers are now known to search for local businesses online*.
With numbers like that, can you afford not to market yourself online?

Targeting the ‘Right’ Areas with Local SEO
Whilst many SEO companies try to over-complicate things by targeting keywords which may sound great initially but are not really viable, we want to help market your business in the ‘right’ areas.
By specialising in local SEO techniques, we are able to remove the guesswork from our marketing efforts. Whilst some of the more ‘old school’ marketing methods such as leaflet drops or newspaper adverts can be hit or miss at best, local SEO reaches local customers at the moment they are looking to use your services.
The Marketing That Keeps on Giving!
One of the most important aspects of local SEO is just how cost effective it is. Unlike other options such as PPC (Pay Per Click), local SEO strategies are designed to stand the test of time.
Would you like more information about how our local SEO services can be used to help promote your business in a cost effective manner? Simply give us a call on Tel. No. 01883 372488 and we will be happy to run through your options.
