For successful Local Internet Marketing, some steps you should follow, in no specific order, are as follows: Build a Plan Planning is at the heart of all good online marketing. This means you need a strong strategy incorporating all of the elements of good marketing, and a plan for testing and implementing each element of your strategy. Video Promotion Video has become such a viral tool that it is something that can reach massive amounts of people in a tiny amount of time. Building content can help increase the search rankings of your site, as well as build massive brand awareness through all the easy ways that customers now have to access video content. Social Media Marketing Like every other element of great marketing online, quality is king. Build quality
followers and friends that are interested in your business and you have a powerful marketing tool. Marketing through Email When you build an email list, you have the single most valuable tool for making your business effective. Think outside the box with email marketing, and use it as a method for building your brand rather than direct marketing. Paid Search Engine Advertising Commonly known as PPC or pay per click, this can be a great way to drive a quick return and kick start a business, but it is also a great way to lose money if you don’t first do your research, as many ppc campaigns fail. Build Links towards Your Site Building links is one of the most important off-site SEO factors. When you’re building links, building from related sites, sites with domain authority, and sites with higher page rank is more important than simply building vast amounts of worthless links. On The Page Optimization This is a complicated subject, but suffice it to say that if you want your website to truly perform well, you need to optimize your pages themselves to perform well in the search results. Multiple Listings of Your Contact Information Listing your business name, address, and phone number is referred to as a citation. This should be include on your
website, in the yellow pages, in Google places, and in all other places that your business can be listed. An example of a citation for a company thats rpovides courier service is: National Courier Service 3326 South 67th Street #201, Omaha, NE 68106 (402) 408-6757? Getting Reviews of Your Site There is a lot to be gained by building reviews for your site. When people are interested in buying a product or service, they like to see both that others have also used that service, and that they have enjoyed it. You can get reviews on Google, Yahoo, Yelp etc. Claiming Listings You need to claim your listing to get it to show up on the map when Google displays the results of local businesses on their listings. There is a tool you can use to check if your listing is claimed, available at www.getlisted.org.
