Get Found on Local Search

Improve foot traffic from local customers in your bricks & mortar business

Did You Know That 50% of People who do a Search for a Local Business on their Mobile Will Visit Within One Day?

Did you also know that local search provides around double the sales rate of normal search!

But how do you get found and what exactly is Local Search?

Google Business and Bing Places put your business on the map and Local Search Engine Optimisation gets you found.

Get Found, Make Sales.

How Does Local Search Work?

You make sure you have your business correctly submitted to Google and Bing ensuring you are shown on their maps.

When someone searches for your services or products, your business will appear when someone is local to you. You can further increase your exposure through joining websites like Trip Advisor, Yellow Pages and Word of Mouth Online, all of which help improve your visibility.

As you get more reviews for your business, the more prominent you will become, getting more visitors and more sales.

Local Search is becoming the most powerful, and cost-effective, search marketing strategy for bricks and mortar businesses.

Why?

People are in your area and they will be searching for something they want.  With local search, your business will appear on the map along with:

♦ Your reviews
♦ Your opening times
♦ Your address
♦ Your phone number
♦ Your location on a map

Everything they need to find your business and visit.

With people relying on Google to find things, and voice search becoming more popular, not having your business set up correctly could be costing your business.

Not managing negative reviews or encouraging positive ones might be sending customers to your competitors.

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE CLIKK

With more people using mobile phones to solve their problems, not having your business appear when someone uses Siri or searches in Google will significantly reduce your visibility.

It might be that you’ve not even setup your local search with Google Business or Bing Places, or that you have and haven’t realised it needs to be done well and supported in other ways too.

You may well be losing out to your competitors or you may even be the first to do it right!

By creating a Google Business and Bing Local account, you tell their search engines about your business. When someone searches for something your business could provide, you appear in the search results and can also appear on maps.

When your business appears, people get to see you on the map, your contact details, opening hours and any reviews you may have.

The better the information, the more likely they will be to contact you.

Firstly, it’s better to have a good website. The information that is shown in a search is good, but sometimes people want to know more.

You need to ensure you have the correct information on every website you are using to promote your business and it needs to be as similar as possible.

You also need to get your business listed on local directories which are relevant to you, especially sites like Zomato for restaurants and Trip Advisor for tourist destinations.

Most importantly, you want to manage your review by promoting the good ones and responding rapidly to the bad ones.

We can audit your existing Local Search and advise you where you need to fix things and where you have opportunities to improve your visibility.

We can fix any issues we find for you and even monitor and advise you when you need to respond to a customer review.

Your website might need some changes to make sure your customers can find what they want, we can help with this too.

Finally, you can supplement your local search listings by using Google AdWords so you get shown right at the top of Google maps.
