Having your business’ local presence everywhere on the web will increase your business’ authenticity. If you place your business on the web with images, physical address and valuable information about your products and services so viewers will rely on your local listings more than other traditional listings.
Accessibility for mobile searchers

Millions, if not all mobile devices have applications which help the customer find any business near them. These applications will help you get a large amount of potential customers coming through your local business’ doors.
Stronger Access to Local Market
You can take advantage of local marketing by having a direct connection with your customers and community. That will maximize the chance to gain additional and future opportunities.
You can also refer the services of other local businesses that offer complementary services. In turn, they will come back to you with extra added benefits, because other local businesses in your communities will refer you to their customers.
To reach local customers, we include the name of the city your business is in and/or the area your business serves. We then focus on using one targeted keyword and carefully place that keyword appropriately.
Remember, if your business shows up in the search results, you have one shot to get that person to click on your link.
It’s important that we get your business listed correctly and consistently on top online business directories, like Yelp, Merchant Circle, Citysearch and others. We also offer a hyper-local website to engage locally.
Yeah, that’s right, you will get a lot of free local-customer traffic to your website when you submit it to local directories. Google states that 40% of mobile queries are related to local business searches. Several search engines also have local directories where you can submit your listing too.
That's why it’s so important to get your business’s name, address and phone number (NAP) on the major citation data aggregators like Infogroup, Neustar (aka Localeze), Acxiom and Factual. We always make sure that your company’s NAP is consistent on as many of these directories and citation sites as possible.
Discrepancies like misspellings, abbreviations, lack of suite number and wrong phone number can create havoc when Google can’t determine which information about your business is correct. If Google’s not sure, they may display incorrect information — or not show your business at all in search results.

You then can opt in for us to manage it for you by building citations and monitoring online reviews to provide easy access to the correct information prospective and current customers are searching for at the right time and place.
