Local SEO Services in St. Louis: Easy, Effective Marketing
Local SEO services help brick & mortar businesses and those who visit customers where they live or work
If customers need to find your physical location, or contact you to set up delivery of your products and services, Local SEO services were designed for you.
With Local SEO you aren’t promoting your website, though some people may visit. The purpose here is to show up as prominently in Google Maps (like the one below) as possible.
50% of Google Searches are Now Local
The phone book is dead; more than 75% have given up Yellow Books permanently. Most newspaper too, with readership in massive decline, between 60 – 80% in most cases.
No, your customers go online to find local business – over 100 million searches per day and growing. So regardless of what you spend on print advertising, your ROI when using those marketing dollars online instead is almost guaranteed to be higher in most cases. And isn’t that the point?
What Generates a Local Result?
In other words, a search that results in a Google map being shown like the one above instead of the standard lists of websites. First off, local results are created when a searcher uses a geo-modifier like “near me” or “close to me”.
Other modifiers here refer to geographic areas directly, like “in St. Louis” or “around Chicago”, or “near Fenway Park”
Another way that local results are generated is when Google simply assumes you want a business nearby. In some categories (like pizza places, shown above) you are going to be shown local results automatically, unless you use a geo-modifier that references a different area than your current one.
Local Searches are VERY Profitable
4 out of every 5 Local searches results in a purchase, often within a few hours of the search.
That’s an amazing 80% conversion rate!
These customers usually know what they want, and by the time they search are motivated to make a purchase. In other words the hard work has already been done.
So you aren’t spending money to get customers interested in your products or services. They already want to buy, and are simply looking for someone nearby that sells what you sell.
Local SEO Services in St. Louis or anywhere puts you in front of these people at just the right time.
