Using Google to Grow Locally

Google is a great tool for people to use to find local businesses, and nearly 73% of online searching relates to finding things that are local or nearby. If your business isn’t showing up in local searches, you may be missing out on a lot of business. If you are found, 78% of local searches result in a purchase within just a few hours. Making sure you’re doing what you can to show up in local searches is the best strategy, because the market you are targeting is the market that is the most likely to make your business money.

To show up in Google’s local searches, be sure that your name, address, and phone number is consistently posted on your website and in every listing you have online. Whenever your information is written online, it can create a listing in various other directories – making sure your information is correct and consistent is the key to showing up to users. Get a Google+ business account, and make sure you are keeping things updated and correct. Remember keywords that you want associated with your brand, and use them consistently. Encourage people to review your business online using Google – people believe and value reviews by others.
