Local Search Trends

There are billions of local searches happening on Google every day. In honor of National Small Business week, we co-hosted this live stream event with Google, where we show how businesses can get in front of customers in their areas and share best practices for using Google My Business features, among other online marketing strategies.

Mobile is a game changer in digital, more specifically in local landscape. Consumers opt to search on their mobile device in their moment of need and 30% of these mobile searches are related to a location. Building a local presence for your business is critical than ever. Today’s online consumer is Curious, Demanding & Impatient. You have to cater to this consumer behavior, by providing relevant information in the moment of their need, in a format that they can consume quickly and easily, before making a decision. 

Google My Business

Google can help your business found online across all devices. 3 out of 4 consumers use a search engine to search before they buy and 7 out of 10 have bought from businesses they found on search engine. 

Google My Business is a free listing that you can use to display business information on search engine and Google maps. This is a great tool to attract local customers with reviews, deals & updates with current information about your business.
