10|20 Marketing wants to see every small business succeed online. With the importance of local search only growing, it’s essential that businesses are found where people are searching for them. That means on search engines, review sites and mapping technologies.
With 10|20 involved, the process to ensure that local businesses turn up on these critical search engines is easy, time saving and automated. We will ensure that your location is consistently presented and error-free, that menus are present and easily updated, and reviews aggregated and monitored, so your business can enjoy improved findability and better overall search engine optimization across the web.
Why? Because modern consumers start their shopping experience on search engines and listing sites. The results they get from those sites determine where they spend their money, with reviews on each location’s listing helping them determine if a business is the right fit for them. As a result, if a business doesn’t appear in local search results, the consumer will be happy to spend their money at a competitor.
Consider these statistics:
- 49% of local searches occur without a specific business in mind.
- 50% of local searches lead to a store visit within a day
- 85% of consumers still prefer to shop in physical stores vs. online
- 86% of people view a menu online before dining out.
- 87% of smartphone owners make a search engine inquiry at least once a day
- 97% of smartphone users use a search engine on their mobile device at least once per week
