LinkNow Media explains that with print advertising becoming less and less effective, small businesses are struggling to find new places to advertise. Google launched “Google Places” several years ago, and it is rapidly becoming the ONLY place to advertise to local clientele.
Small business website design company LinkNow Media understands that, in order to stay ahead of the curb, it is not enough to just remain satisfied with their current product—they must continue to search for and test any and all new marketing methods to ensure that they, as well as their clients, stay ahead of their competition.
“That is why,” LinkNow Media President and Founder Wesley Mendelovitch exclaims, “We are pleased to announce that, after over a year of testing and refining, we have launched our new Google Places Local Business Marketing packages to add to our suite of beautiful website designs!”
The new packages were designed specifically with small local businesses who are trying to attract local clientele in mind. Many small businesses have already jumped on board, and it is extremely important to be one of the first in line in order to guarantee that your listing continues to rank at the top of Google, where it is visible to your clientele.
Wesley continues, “In the past, it was easy enough to get your business noticed, simply running an ad in a print directory would put you on a level playing field with all your competitors. Now with Google Places, all local competitors are fighting for the top 10 spots on Google and once you are there it is hard to be moved out of those positions, especially if you have a good team of experts continuously working on the listing. That’s why I have personally told all my friends and family in small business, whether you do it with me, another marketing company or on your own, with over 80% of searches being done on Google – that in order to gain new business in the New Internet Age – Google Places is where ALL your focus must be.”
LinkNow Media has designed a marketing package that meets Google guidelines and that helps ensure that the client’s local business listing continues to be featured prominently on Google anytime someone initiates a search for their industry from a computer or mobile device.
Remember: The longer you wait, the more and more difficult it will become for you to stay ahead of the competition, especially if your competitors have been online for years!
