Local Ohio & Michigan SEO Services

Local SEO is basically the strategy of optimizing your website to rank highly in local search results. With the internet being a global resource for businesses and customers, what is the likelihood that somebody in Pakistan will need your services! To increase the customers from finding your website on the internet – one must utilize the available tools and resources to be found on the first pages of the search engines such as Bing, Google, and Yahoo. That is why with us and our partner at the Grand Rapids SEO Company, we work hard to stay on top of the strategies elite SEO’s are using to help dominate local search results.
When potential customers are looking for a product or service in their local area, a lot of them start searching or doing a localized search for local businesses nearest to them – not in India or Brazil!

Local SEO techniques simply aim to get your name, website and business in front of the people that are most likely to use it – those that are physically located near it. There are specific steps or tactics and techniques that can and should be used to ensure that your SEO is targeted to a local audience.

FAQS About Local SEO:

Who or what type of business needs Local SEO?

Any business that gets some or all of its customers or clients locally should consider local SEO. That could be a local restaurant, DJ, photographer, real estate agent , doctor, dentist or lawyer. It could just be somebody that provides a service, product, or wants to promote something or someone (portfolio).

How is local SEO different from the national SEO?

On a national level the competition to be found on the first pages of the search engines is harder to achieve. A local SEO campaign uses the same tactics or steps to achieve these rankings, but, local businesses don’t have to compete with the thousands of other websites that provide the same services/products. Our action plan gears towards the local market, local directories (such as our link directory here), and other local resources.
With Local SEO services, we look at: the use of citations (mentions of your business in other sites which play a major factor in local searches).,

What price range are we talking about for local SEO?

Because of the complexities involved in trying to get better rankings, the effort, time, budget of each company, marketing goals, etc., the prices will vary for each. Sure, some companies will offer a set price or a package without knowing what your budget, or goals are! We try to provide these services at an affordable price for each and every client – depending on how much they want to spend.

Is this SEO stuff a one time thing?

We can provide these services for a one time deal if you like, or have it setup as a recurring campaign. Remember, once you are satisfied with your ranking or results, other local businesses are also trying to achieve the same results as you are. With that being said, your rankings with the search engines could slowly start to fade to the other pages, and eventually on the pages that hardly anybody goes to.
So, in a nutshell – it is an ongoing endeavor.

LOCAL INTERNET MARKETING

What is Internet Marketing? And how does it help my website?

Internet marketing, also known as web marketing, online marketing, or e-marketing, is referred to as the marketing (generally promotion) of products or services over the Internet. Internet marketing is considered to be broad in scope because it not only refers to marketing on the Internet, but also includes marketing done via e-mail and wireless media.
Internet marketing ties together the creative and technical aspects of the Internet, including design, development, advertising and sales. Internet marketing also refers to the placement of media along many different stages of the customer engagement cycle through search engine marketing (SEM), search engine optimization (SEO), banner ads on specific websites, content marketing, mobile advertising, and Web 2.0 strategies

Approaching other local websites has it’s advantages – as it clearly defines that you as a website owner/webmaster, want to reciprocate traffic with others.

The following are fields of interest that pertain to internet marketing:

Display Advertising
Email Marketing
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Interactive Advertising
Viral Marketing

The days of just having a website are over. In today’s competitive world (global AND local) – one must promote, market, advertise their services/products in order to have an edge over the others, and that is where internet marketing plays a major role.

Here are a few more FAQS about Internet Marketing:

I keep getting calls or emails from people telling me they can get my website to the top of Google, Yahoo, and it sounds like a scam.

We get those emails as well and sometimes they are a scam, or done by somebody that has hardly any experience with SEO techniques and internet marketing. Sometimes it’s just a misunderstanding about what they actually do. Nobody can guarantee you a top spot on Google. It takes commitment and time to do well in the search engines. But the rewards are worth it in the long run.

I’ve spent a lot of money investing in a website for my business and I’ve seen no return from it.

Building a website and marketing it are two highly specialized and different skills, and you shouldn’t expect the person or company that built your site to be able to market it successfully for you, especially in the local search engines. After all you wouldn’t ask a carpenter to build a house and sell it for you – you’d call in a realtor to sell the house.

I don’t need a website, I get all the customers I want using offline or old fashioned methods.

We have yet to see a small business that can’t benefit from having an online presence even if only to get more customers and profits than you already enjoy. With technology changing so fast, if one does not join the “bandwagon,” perhaps you might be left out, and losing out on more prospective customers AND revenue.

This Internet Marketing stuff sounds like a lot of hard work and I’m running a business and don’t have time for it.

Most local businesses don’t have time, the resources or expertise to execute online marketing activities. We spend our time online so that you don’t have to. Instead of laboring on how to market and promote your local website, we handle all the small details of running a positive and profitable campaign.
