Let me ask you a few quick questions about your Local Business Advertising…

  • Do you sometimes wonder if potential customers are having trouble finding your local business?
  • Do customers tell you that it was a challenge to find your location?
  • Do you wonder if there is more that you could do to help customers more easily find you?

If this sounds like you, keep reading. This information will help you.

If you do not feel this way, still keep reading. Many businesses have the issue we are going to discuss and do not even know it.

Does your business have a hidden bad reputation?

The answer to this question could be yes. Potential customers may have a reason to intentionally avoid you.

One reason could be that you may have a lot of negative reviews on your Google Business page.

You may not even know these negative reviews are out there. But potential customers ARE finding these sites like Google Business, Bing Local and many, many more of these local business directories.

People are leaving both negative and positive reviews. These are out of your control, but potential customers are finding them regardless.

Many times they find these sites well before your actual website in Google. They find the negative reviews first.

Most likely potential customers are not avoiding you.

You probably run a business with an excellent reputation. I am sure people love you.

But even if negative reviews are not your specific problem, there are potentially a lot of people missing out on what you have to offer.

You may have an amazing website, an app, social media channels and offline marketing, but something is still missing from your online presence.

The good news is that you can easily fix this issue with your business contact information and a few pictures related to your business.

What is the real problem with getting found online?

It is extremely challenging to get your business website to increase in local Google search ranking without help.

This help could be in the form of expensive Google Ads that you have to keep paying for to stay at the top of Google Search.

It could come by people linking to your website. Google loves this, but it is very challenging to get individuals or business to link to you.

You can create a ton of valuable content in a blog on your website. Google loves more content, and more pages on your site mean more opportunities to become found online.

But, you are busy. Who has time to write a lot of blog posts like this one right?

Your problem is that you most likely do NOT have the time or resources to make your website rank well in Google by itself.

Are you missing something simple that could bring your Business NEW Customers?

One of the fastest and most effective ways to increase your Business Google presence is to claim and optimize our Local Business Directory listings on sites like Google Business, Yahoo, Bing and around 50 more of these sites.

The reason is that Google looks at these sites to verify that you are a real business and if you are still in operation. Google is also looking for a consistent Business Name, Address and Phone Number across as many of these sites as possible.

When you claim and optimize as many of these sites, it gives Google confidence that you have a real person or company managing your listings.

Google’s confidence in your business because of these listings gives Google the GREEN LIGHT to raise your website and these listings in search terms related to your business in your local area.

It is very challenging to claim and optimize these listings on your own. It is a detailed, tedious and annoying process because each of these sites has their own system that you have to figure out.

You can definitely attempt to do this on your own, but make sure you have plenty of time and patience to figure out the claiming process.

You can also use Finding Your Business Local Business to help you claim and optimize as many of these sites as possible.
