What Is Local SEO?
Local SEO is the practice of optimizing your website so that it ranks well in Google’s local search results.
When someone searches for a dentist, they want a dentist who’s around the corner or in the same city. Likewise with plumbers, chiropractors, home builders and landscapers – each is a business who interact with the local community. Effective Local SEO makes it possible for local businesses to be seen by local clients and customers with a serious intent to buy.
The advantage to local seo is that there’s usually less competition and you get in front of the right people (buyers) at the right time – now!
The biggest caveat is that you may not have the staffing resources to handle the influx of business created by our online marketing efforts. When executed correctly, local SEO can literally transform your business.
You don’t hire a seo specialist to rank you on the second page!
Business owners are naturally skeptical of SEO providers. Either they’ve had a bad experience in the past or they’ve heard about other bad experiences. I want to remove that risk and place it squarely on my shoulders. You shouldn’t have to pay for work that doesn’t produce. If I don’t meet our agreed upon rank, traffic, and ROI goals during any given month, the next month is FREE. It’s that simple. Adding to that, all your work will be completely transparent and accessible, there are no term commitments, and if you chose to leave – all work goes with you.
