You’ve made the choice to add SEO to your marketing strategy. But did you know it goes beyond keywords on your website? At Cloud LGS, our Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
programs include both on- and off-page practices. On-page, being the SEO implemented on your business’s website and off-page being SEO best practices implemented on various web platforms including social media, local listings, and article distribution sites.
Local business listings are where potential customers are searching for your product or service. It is your business’s online profile that immediately displays contact info, photos, details of service and reviews from other customers. Local listings help increase the visibility of your business online and there are thousands of directories to be a part of. For most small businesses, however, there is just not enough time to research platforms and create profiles.
That’s where Cloud LGS comes in. We submit your business to 25 to 100 of the top local listings like Yelp, Angie’s List, Foursquare and more. These profiles feature your business description, photos, videos, services, updated business information, call to actions and special offers.
It is important to have accurate and updated profiles on various local listings. Where your potential customers search is where you want to be. Too often, small businesses neglect to claim company profiles or update them with new contact information when a business moves or changes phone numbers. A customer will not jump through hoops to find you, so making every step of the process as simple as possible is crucial to a successful conversion
of a web user into a customer.
Local listings target more customers in your area who are ready to buy your product or service. They help increase your brand popularity and ultimately helps your business appear more in search results using your specified keywords
. A monthly report is sent to all Cloud LGS clients highlighting all of the local listings their business is now on. Submitting company profiles is among the first steps in a successful SEO campaign because it expands your online presence beyond your website.
