With more and more people using online search to find local businesses and the services they provide, your company can only benefit from being found at the top of the search results pages whether it’s in the organic or paid listings, bringing more foot traffic to your premises and increasing your visibility.
Voice Search for Local Businesses
Google state a massive 80% of online searchers use a mobile device to search locally, either typing in a search request or by using the Google Voice search which is becoming ever more popular with smartphone users due to its accuracy and ease of use. Simply click the microphone icon on the search screen, speak your request and a rather lovely lady announces, ‘here are local search results within 2 kilometres (for example) of your current location.
Invest in Paid Mobile Ads for Your Local Business
With that being said, doesn’t it makes sense to start investing a little more in online advertising, utilising focused local paid search ads to get your business the visibility it needs to become the thriving company you originally set out to create?
Companies like Google, Bing and Yahoo have made it simple to create ads specifically targeted at your local mobile audience. Within the Adwords or other paid search control panel, during creation of the ad content, use the location extension and select the device preference box for mobile devices. Your ads will now be targeted to the mobile audience enabling visitors to click to call to be immediately connected with your business to either make an appointment or find out more details about your business, as well as other options.
