Rank in the "Top 3" for Multiple Search Keywords = More Business
Times have changed. The only thing that used to matter was where you ranked in the regular (organic) search results. No longer. What also counts now is where your local business ranks in the Maps. Are you making it into the "Snack Pack" or Top 3?
Honestly, this ranking system is not fair. Only those business who use experts stand a chance to dominate for multiple keywords, especially in competitive markets. Many local businesses have an SEO budget where they pay $1000s per month to stay highly ranked in several towns or different areas of their city. And it's worth it because that's where the most consistent results are. Ads are expensive and hit-or-miss. Social media? Very unpredictable. Regular old search? Gold. Because they are looking for you.
What is Local Maps Optimization?
Since 2011, we have excelled in the area of SEO for Local Business. Liam was written up in the Princeton Business paper in 2013 for his SEO work, and he also regularly taught SEO to business owners through SCORE and the New Jersey Small Business Development Center (NJSBDC) at Rutgers University.
Local Maps Optimization comes from the #1 question asked by local business owners: What's the best way to market my business online without breaking the bank? The answer for 2021? A Dominant Local Maps Presence.
To achieve this, your website speed must be optimized, your Google My Business profile must be optimized, your website SEO must be optimized, and your internal and external links must be optimized. What your business needs in each of these categories will determine how we get your business moving up the ranks.
What Types of Business Do You Work With?
We have success with all kinds of local businesses: Music Schools, Tutors, Lawyers, Funeral Homes, Tree Service Professionals, Dog Walkers . . . You! Even if you don't currently have a claimed Google My Business page, we can help you rank better. Don't miss out on the success your business deserves.
Isn't This Something We Can Do Ourselves?
No, not really. 10 years ago, yes, but not now. There is of course much you can and should do yourself, but SEO for local is too important not to get expert help.
Check this out: "Based on extensive research by Ahrefs, the average agency SEO plan costs $2819 per month." Ouch. But don't worry; there's a lot we can do for you for much less.
