Why Focus on Local SEO?
Local businesses have historically relied on foot traffic and word of mouth to grow. Along with a host of marketing material, both digital and print. But what if there was a better way? What if there was a way to target customers who are actively looking for you, at the exact moment that they’re looking?
That sounds almost magical, doesn’t it? But it’s not magic. And for many local businesses, it need not be difficult either.
The reason is to focus on local SEO is simple: To increase sales and revenue by increasing your online presence in your local market. But how do we get to that point?

Improving local SEO, so that everyone searching for your type of business in your location can find you, would be like blanketing your town or city with billboards. Every road. Every yard. Every nook and cranny.
