5 Steps In Getting Your Business Found In Local Internet Searches

Local Internet SearchesIn the day and age that we live one thing is as true as it ever was – – it doesn’t matter how good you are or how competitive your prices are if no one knows about you!  As a result, the age-old challenge of making sure that potential clients find you continues to rage on.  Currently, however, the secret to achieving this goal no longer revolves around the yellow pagesbillboards nor, to some extent, even radio and TV advertising.  Rather, the key, the “secret” if you would, to marketing success pretty much revolves around the Internet and Social Media!

This realm can, without a doubt, be over-whelming to the average businessman.  While volumes and volumes have been written on this topic, there are five “golden nuggets’ that will at least give you a “jump-start” in the Marketing World of the 21st Century!

1. CREATE A LOCAL PRESENCE ON THE BIG THREE SEARCH ENGINES – These are, of course, GOOGLE PLACES, YAHOO LOCAL, and BING LOCAL (BUSINESS PORTAL).

2. GET LISTED IN AS MANY LOCAL DIRECTORIES AS POSSIBLE – These can run the gamut from “Angie’s List” to “Hot Frog” and includes things like:

  • superpages.com
  • kudzu.com
  • yellowpages.com
  • local.com
  • yelp.com
  • citysearch.com
  • myhuckleberry.com
  • company.com
  • ​showmelocal.com
  • ezlocal.com

3. CREATE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA PROFILES – Including Company Accounts (not personal) in  FOURSQUARE, FACEBOOK, TWITTER, LINKED IN and YOU TUBE.

4. ENCOURAGE CLIENTS TO WRITE AND POST POSITIVE REVIEW IN GOOGLE PLACES (and YAHOO AND BING) and LOCAL DIRECTORIES such as ANGIE’S LIST  – There are several excellent ways to accomplish this.

5. PURSUE SEARCH ENGINE RANKING ON YOUR TARGETED LOCAL KEYWORDS  – Example:  Plumber – Dallas – Texas

As you can imagine, there are numerous steps necessary to accomplish the above steps, and, to learn what they are, go to Pathmaker Marketing.

If you attended the pre-mixer workshop at the CBN mixer in Phoenix this April, you heard me present “The Bottom Line for Success Online.”  If you weren’t at the workshop, feel free to download that helpful 10-page White Paper from my website

Since the internet is my area of expertise, I’ll affirm this fact: You must start planting seeds on the web today if you want to enjoy success for your company online tomorrow. Professional fundraisers know this fundamentally, but many small business owners have yet to grasp its significance.

I consider this so important for local businesses, churches, and charities, that I want to offer your company two very practical steps to jump start your efforts in this regard.

First, at no charge to you (meaning for free), Pathmaker Marketing will set up your personal and company profiles in Google — a great initial step for local search engine marketing strategies — and establish Google Analytics on your company website, so you’ll get valuable weekly traffic stats for targeting keywords.

Second, I’m offering you a 50% discount off our Top 100 Local Directory Placements, designed to get your company listed in the Top 100 local, business, blog, video and map directories. That normally costs $995 ($10 a listing) but it’s yours now at 50% off for just $495 ($5 per listing)! This effective internet marketing step is a fundamental building block  to establishing a proper Internet foundation.

Or you can get our Top 40 Local Directory Placements on sale for just $195 ($5 a listing).  At this low price, you can jump start your local business or church marketing 101 for cheap.

Either way, I’m going to extend these two special offers to you until 6pm, Friday, May 6th.  (If the deadline has passed when you read this post, call me up, and ask if I’ll honor the deal anyway over the phone).  

I’m willing to help you plant your seeds today for effective internet marketing, so you’ll reap the rewards tomorrow.
