WebTiger Search Marketing, a company that specializes in search engine optimization and Google Maps placement for small businesses and local companies has opened its doors in Chicago, IL.
Why local search?
While most big companies are already on board with some kind of SEO campaign, many smaller businesses have taken longer to embrace a web marketing strategy. "A lot of business owners set up a site and think 'Ok, we're on the web!' and wait for customers to show up. While having a website is an important first step, you have to take steps to make your site visible on the web" said WebTiger's owner, Robert Carter.
Appearing in local search engines like Google Maps is key for small businesses because customers are now looking online for services. "Search engine optimization is to the web what a catchy sign is to a physical business location. It's not good enough to just be online, you have to have people find you and that's where SEO comes in" Carter added.
Why a local search firm?
While a simple search for SEO companies in Chicago will yield many results, the fact is that very few are really focusing on local clients. "The dream client for most SEO firms is a large corporation with tons of pages and traffic. Most of the firms out there aren't focused on helping small businesses that focus on a single geographical market" said Carter.
"If you're a mom and pop type of place, you're going to be low on the priority list of a big SEO firm. You're going to pay a lot of money and you're not going to get a lot of personal attention. We wanted to focus on helping local companies and small business owners at affordable rates."
More on the Move
The owner, Robert Carter, was excited about the move. "Chicago is an amazing and diverse city. We're really happy to be here." WebTiger's serves small businesses as far afield as Melbourne, Australia, and plans to continue servicing all of its current clients. "The nature of this business is that you can work via the web to help people around the world, but it's nice to have that face-to-face contact when you can."
