It may sound like common sense, but people searching for your business on the internet locally are going to convert to a sale faster than someone searching across the country. Take advantage of these high conversion searches and expand your presence locally online. Here are a few tips to think of:
- Make sure you’ve claimed and established your business page within Google, Yahoo! and Bing.
- Establish trust with your customers by adding images to your local listing and ask for customer reviews within those business pages.
- Make sure if you have any community involvement that you put that information on your site and ask for a link to your site for any sponsorship you participate in.
- Mobile searches = local searches. Make sure you are taking full advantage of your site showing up in mobile searches with a mobile friendly site and local map listings.
