Who I am / Our Company Enter Details about you or your company and your current success to date
The Local Business Market Local Business Marketing is one of those areas that are set to explode in the next few years as Internet Marketers begin to realise the power of the “local search”. There are more people searching online for local products and services than ever before The searcher is much more qualified and specific to the local product or service which means they are more likely to convert into a paying customer! E.g Plumber Vs Plumber In Kent There are more local businesses turning to online marketing to find new ways of generating customers and leads, and increasing their profit margin! Google has realised this with the Introduction of the Google Business Directory, Google Local and Google Maps, and also the ability to show your adverts within a defined geographic area of your business location!
The Opportunity For Local Businesses Local Business marketing represents a great opportunity because: There is lower competition for keywords containing a geographic location which means you pay less for each lead generated The search by the customer is more targeted and therefore more valuable to the local business The cost of driving traffic to a website is significantly reduced Local Businesses are not aware of the potential benefits & revenue this type of marketing could bring them This trend will continue to grow as more and more people use the Internet to find a local service or product and more away from more traditional means The opportunities to take advantage of local business marketing are vast as there are thousands of services in towns and cities all over the country!
Growth Of Local Searches In The Uk The Kelsey Group reports that 74 percent of Internet users perform local searches 43% of search engine users are seeking a local merchant to buy something offline. Local search is easier that searching the yellow pages book or yellow pages online Instant results for the user – In a matter a seconds the searcher is presented with a list of local businesses providing a relevant service The growth of mobile devices such as mobile phones, laptops and ipads have made local searching convenient More than half of those that own devices (such as the iPhone) are performing local business searches Look at the next generation?? – How many children, teenagers or young adults actually use the yellow pages.
Decline of Yellow Pages 2006 - 2014 **Searches are finding more and more of the information directly in the search engines which is removing the need to find Internet Yellow Pages**
The Decline Of The Yellow Pages Your advert is placed right next to your competitors in your industry You are placed in one particular advertising section Tracking business/leads that actually comes from Yellow pages is extremely difficult to do Not all ads are created equal – You have to spend big to stand out You pay no matter if anyone sees your ad or responds to it. The searcher/customer wants instant results – why search through a book (or yellow pages online) when the solution can be “Googled” Once it's printed, that's it! You cant change it No testing – how do you know if you ad is working
The Decline Of Newspaper Advertising The Newspaper Association of America (NAA) website reports a 27.94% year- on-year decline in newspaper advertising revenue Your Ad must compete with hundreds of ads, as well as dozens of stories and features for the reader to wade through. Expose time is often low and not focused – the majority of people read a paper for general interest not because they are looking to buy The majority of adverts in newspapers are not tracked to determine ROI Advertising is often short lived with the paper being discarded at the end of the day – requiring a longer term investment to see a return in sales Advertising in a national newspaper can command huge prices Broad appeal rather than targeting your customer who is already searching for a particular product or service You have no assurance that every person who receives the newspaper will read your ad You pay for the advert even if no one reads it!
