Local Search Infographic. Are You Measuring Up? [Probably Not]
A lot of numbers to look at with this one. Are you taking advantage of your local search opportunities? Probably the most interesting to me is that there are 350 million business reviews done DAILY! If you are a local business you definitely need a piece of that action.
By the way, over 40% of Connecticut is on Facebook. If you do not have one of those 16 Million business pages you are doing your business a disservice.
Which fact do you think is the most interesting?
The importance of local search
You’re a local business in Connecticut and you need to target consumers and/or businesses in Connecticut. You have a website but your not sure who is seeing it. You need to focus on your Connecticut Local Search Marketing but now you are wondering how to go about that, or if your current internet marketing team is doing that for you.
There are numerous directories dedicated to local businesses and the consumers who support those CT local businesses. Almost half of the app downloads on iOS are social and local. This means that not only are consumers looking for businesses on the go, but they are looking for your product or service. Is your competition getting the business because you’re not taking advantage of the directories and local search/social media?
Mapquest lists restaurants, banks, stores and other brick and mortar locations when anyone uses their service. Is your business showing up on their site? Google, Bing, Yahoo and Yelp are all dedicated to local business growth. Many other sites tie in with local directories and search. Millions upon millions of people are using local search to find what they are looking for, and many of them are ready to purchase. Don’t miss out on the potential!
