More "traditional" forms of advertising, like yellow pages, print ads, newspapers, radio, tv, and even billboards are continuing to decline in popularity due to their high ongoing costs and ever decreasing returns for the businesses they advertise.
Its with that in mind, that you should know about a new online marketing "weapon" thats not yet very well known or understood by small business owners looking to increase their business.
The new "weapon" is the local listings directories on Google, Yahoo, and Bing, and in this article, we'll be discussing how you can use these type systems to basically dominate your local market in a matter of weeks.
Now, the local listings concept is something thatís relatively new in the internet marketing landscape but it has the potential to totally change the way we all market our products and services on the internet.
When you have a properly optimized local listing on each of the three largest search engines that exist in the world youíre going to win. Youíre going to win over your competitors because youíre getting some of the most valuable exposure and screen real estate thatís possible on a search results page.
Over the last couple of years each of the three major search engines have devoted an enormous amount of area above the fold or the area that you can see on the search results page without using your browser scrollbar to these local listings.
Furthermore, itís been shown through research that the number one listing captures 41% of the clicks on the first page of search results. Thatís 41%, and best of all the clicks that youíll get to your website are offered for free, not pay per click; at least at the current time of this article.
So when you have a highly ranked listing youíre going to be seen as more relevant and most importantly, more helpful to your potential prospect as you act as a trusted advisor. Youíll be providing them not only with your company name, phone number, and website contact information but youíll also be giving them educational information in the form of videos, articles, pictures and even special offers in an effort to build that strong bond before you ever even meet or do business.
