Do it. Be a hero! If your aim is for your business to top the search engine charts—and really, why wouldn’t it be?—here are a few tips that may help:
1. Embed a map
Maps are of course useful because they show customers exactly where you are located, but a map tied to Google Maps also helps boost your search visibility.
2. Don’t be shy; share the locations in which you do business
To start, adding a list of the cities and towns in which you do business will help. Next, consider creating individual landing pages for each local area. Most searches look something like this: “office supplies fort worth.” This is where your business can shine as a local market leader.
3. Sign up with Google Places
Setting up a Google Places account opens more doors for your business. It provides users with immediate access to your website, contact information, and company hours. It even provides an outlet where customers may review your business.
4. Social Media
Social media websites like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook provide additional outlets that are, for the most part, free. At its core, think of social media as another way of making the public aware of the products and services your company offers.
5. Blog Posts
Blog posts help keep your customers engaged. Posts are a meaningful and productive way to announce seasonal discounts, share tips of the trade, provide product reviews, and so much more. Thanks in part to social media blog posts may then be disseminated throughout the web thus continuing to help your business come out on top of web searches.
