When it comes to advertising online, many local and small business owners don’t see the point. They often feel that as they are small businesses with a local focus, being online (which is, essentially, a global platform) doesn’t make sense and is a waste of advertising effort. However, nothing could be further from the truth. This line of thinking shows a lack of understanding of modern marketing and consumer interests which, unfortunately, puts these businesses behind the curve -and less likely to be found by the very consumers looking for the services their business has to offer.
Recent studies show that when looking for information on local businesses, 50% of consumers will search online using a mobile device and an impressive 61% of those searches ends in a purchase. That’s not a percentage you can afford to miss out on!
Executive Online Marketing can help you to take advantage of those local searches by helping to list your business on Google. Google Local is an amazing opportunity for local business to reach potential customers performing local searches.
