Did you know that 97% of potential customers search for local businesses online? That is why it is essential that you get your business noticed on the internet. If your business is based in Leeds then the best way to get noticed is to use a local SEO in Leeds. You see if your online marketing agency is Leeds specific then they will have a better knowledge of the local demographic and therefore the kind of customers your advertising must appeal to.
EA Online marketing is an SEO agency in Leeds and we can give you all the advice you need to get noticed. It must be said that one of the best ways to get noticed is to set up a Google Places page for you business. It is a free tool that Google offer to help people find you and in today’s economic climate it could make all the difference for you business (it may even be the difference between success and failure).
To really get your business noticed you can continually update your Google Places for Business page. for example you can add new photographs, or videos, you can advertise special offers or promotions, you can post live updates and even reply to reviews from your Google Places for Business account.
Ordinarily you would want to advertise your exact location but you can even advertise your business on Google Places for business if you have a mobile business or you work from home and you don’t want to advertise your address. You simply have to specify a ‘service area’ instead of a physical address during the sign up procedure.
This feature is also really useful if your business is out of the way, has no recogniseable shop front or has no exposure to passing trade. You may be based in the middle of a massive trading estate or perhaps your business is based in a room in an office complex.
While Google Places for Business is one very good way to get your business noticed, do also remember that there is a Leeds digital marketing agency (that’s us!) who will help to keep you front and centre in the digital market place.
