Experts at Numero Uno Web Solutions (NumeroUnoWeb.com), a fast-growing global Internet marketing firm that caters to small- and mid-size business-to-consumer companies, announces that it is further enhancing its comprehensive local Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services.
“Businesses know that to grow their market share they need to promote their businesses online,” says Wayne Smith, Sales Manager at Numero Uno Web Solutions. “But increasingly, we’re coming across businesses that are almost too global-centric, which is important. But, if businesses want to increase sales, they also need to foster local SEO; especially if the business relies on local Internet or foot traffic.”
A survey conducted by Harris Interactive revealed that, when searching for a local business, 59% (83% of those under the age of 35) turn to search engines first. Less than 10% visited the merchant’s site directly. (Source: Sterling, G., “Search Dominates Other Sources for Local Information — Study,” Search Engine Land; last accessed October 30, 2012.)
“People can’t ignore those statistics. Without a properly optimized local SEO campaign, customers could end up going to the competition. The key to improving a business’ visibility is local SEO. And, it takes an experienced online marketing team to ensure a business has a local SEO campaign that can drive qualified online customers to its doorstep,” adds Smith.
If a business wants to be the top search engine result in its area, it has to take advantage of every possible marketing avenue. If the business doesn’t cater to its local market, the competition will, according to Numero Uno Web Solutions.
For years now, Numero Uno has been successfully providing its clients with customized Internet marketing services. Now it’s ramping up its local SEO marketing plans in an effort to remind businesses just how important local traffic is; and how an effective local SEO campaign can augment traditional marketing plans.
Smith adds, “There are a lot of different angles to a successful local SEO campaign. One simple place to start is online; particularly Facebook. Seventy-seven percent of business-to-consumer companies acquired customers from Facebook. Eighty percent of social network users prefer to connect with brands through Facebook.” (Source: Eridon, C., “12 Revealing Marketing Stats About Facebook for Business,” HubSpot Blog, September 11, 2012.)
“Again, a lot of people I talk to seem to be overlooking the importance of their local market. Our experience and years of market research show that local SEO campaigns can significantly improve both local ranking and foot traffic.”
