The experts have estimated that more than 13% of your local residents are using the Internet right now, and 20% of them are searching for products and services locally. That number is growing as the Internet grows. More and more people are getting online, and the trend of searching online continues while the use of the Yellow Pages declines.
These people will become someone’s newest customer. Will they be your customer… or your competitions?
Yellow Pages advertising is effectively becoming more and more expensive due to the fact that fewer and fewer people ever even see your ad. The Internet is becoming the major resource that your local residents turn to when gathering information to make a buying decision.
In order to be competitive, a local business must fully leverage the power of Internet advertising and marketing. It’s becoming more and more effective as more and more people get online. When someone is looking to solve a problem or fill a need, they want to find a business that can help them as quickly a possible. No other method of advertising is as quick or can offer as much information as the business Internet.
However, with hundreds of millions of websites available on the Internet, you must make sure that any potential customers will find your ad or website when they search for the products or services that you offer.
This is where you need the help of someone who really knows what they are doing. Someone who could get your search phrase ranked highly in the search engines and could actually show you the search engine results before you spend your precious advertising dollars.
