HOW DO THEY FIND YOU?

Small local businesses face an increasingly uphill battle that threatens their long-term sustainability. The digital paradigm shift, use of voice search, GPS and Amazon's dominance brings new challenges. Technology is changing all the time but your time is valuable and your budget is limited. Getting found consistently in searches is critical to your sustainability. Don't let that be a barrier. It's about inbound marketing that addresses current search/shop behavior(getting found in searches) and differentiation from your competitors.


In a survey, 91% of consumers said they've turned to a business's competitor if the business’s listing didn't give good and accurate information and the website wasn’t optimized for mobile devices. 56% of on-the-go searches have local intent and 60% of consumers use mobile exclusively to make purchase decisions. 


They go right to their phones, wherever they are and expect accurate and robust information with good reviews and easy access to buy. Are they finding you or a competitor first?

Found it!

So imagine it from a consumer's perspective. If they're on their phone searching for a place to shop or eat and click on "near me" or use voice search and they don't see what they want near the top of the page. Generally they just go to something near the top.


Ok they find your restaurant business listing but it doesn't have the correct information. It's listing is under a different name, the address has changed, phone number is ok but there are no hours, menu (that they can read), pictures, specials, offers, online ordering, reservation link or good reviews. 


Hmmmmm.... They look for a menu and don't find one on the listing so they click on the restaurant’s website only to find the menu is tiny and the site is difficult to navigate. It isn't mobile optimized and a voice search is inconsistent. They move on to the next restaurant. Let's fix that,
