Local marketing is taking off as a new service offered by lots of information providers and I am sure that you have emails in your inbox offering to promote your business to the local community. Some even for a very reasonable £300- £400 per month!!
Yellow Pages searches have been declining more and more since the advent of internet capable mobile phones and the availability of laptop computers. It's just as easy to reach for the phone or open the laptop to find the product or service you are looking for. Where do 97% of the UK population go for this search?....... Google of course. So the key is to get yourself on the first page. Then the goal is to get yourself near the top, then you might dream of getting in the first 5.
Do you want to be at the top, on top for local searches?
It's easy and you should be doing it now. Potential customers are searching for your business every day and you are missing out.
What is Google Places?
More people search for businesses online than anywhere else, so it's important to make sure your business listing can be easily found on Google.com and Google Maps. With Google Places, creating a great listing takes just a few minutes and doesn’t cost a thing.
At the Sell Yourself Locally workshop in Newbury on the 10th March the Cognition Coaching & Development team will have a Google expert there to create your Google Places page for you while you are at the workshop.
There will be some other great content too, including a social media expert taking you through how to grow your local community using the power of these global platforms.
We will also be taking you through some killer strategies to promote your business to the local market along with valuable content on how to network effectively.
