First page on Google
You might be wondering right now, “Why does my business need to be on the first page of Google Business Listings? Don’t I want to be on the first page of plain old Google?” It’s a question we hear a lot because many of our clients aren’t sure what the difference is. We’ll show you with an example from one of our current clients, right here:
Those boxes immediately under the map are called business listings. They are represented on the map above by their respective pins and business names. For a local business like yours, this is the best place to be because this is what paying customers see when they type something like “Wrecker Service” in Asheville NC.
Our Internet advertising agency can work with you to get your business an advantageous placement for the popular services you provide with the name of your company, website, address, phone number, even customer reviews and a pin on the map right on top of Google’s organic search results. Our client in this example has been with us for many years, and you see that they’ve made it to the top of an organic search as well, which is great. We focus on local SEO because that is where the money is for businesses like yours, however, these are the kinds of results our clients that have been with us for years see over time.
Can I do this without an Internet marketing service?
