Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
Ranking well for local search should be a top priority for companies looking to drive more in-store foot traffic to their brick and mortar stores and businesses while at the same time increasing ecommerce sales through new incremental search traffic.
"This goes far beyond product visibility," says Bill Connard, senior director product and business development at Rio SEO. "Local and mobile search analytics reveal coupon redemption, in-store pick-up, maps, driving directions, phone calls, and promotions are driving specific measurable increases from the digital footprint to in-store foot traffic and purchases."
Rio SEO, a leading software provider of SEO and social media analytics and automation tools, will present a webinar entitled "Drive More Foot Traffic with Local Search", Tuesday, Sept. 18, which will be hosted by Loyalty 360, the Loyalty Marketers Association.
In-house corporate brand marketers and search practitioners at digital ad agencies are invited to join this discussion and complementary webinar. The session will focus on the important on-site and off-site factors affecting local search rankings on Google+ Local, along with how to implement these key elements to achieve maximum results.
According to Mark Johnson, president and CEO of Loyalty 360, “There has never been a more opportune time to create a unique engagement with your audience. As the focus of marketing shifts from push to pull, the ability to create applicable content, that speaks to and influences a business's current and prospective clients, has never been more important. The focus is no longer about being “found,” it is about a strategic and tactical inception of a dialogue with the consumer. Increased attention on SEO, to understand how to shape this conversation has never been more important.”
The free webinar kicks off at 1 p.m. EDT. More information is available online at http://loyalty360.org/conferences/event/drive-more-foot-traffic-with-local-search.
