Which businesses need local SEO?
Wondering which business categories can see immediate results from local SEO? Here are some examples:
Restaurants, hairdressers, beauty salons, language schools, music schools, gyms, medical offices, law offices, hotels, apartments for rent, local shops, supermarkets, mini markets, gas stations, rooms for rent, hotels, cafes, bars, etc. All local businesses can benefit from local SEO services.
Let’s look at an example. Let’s say you have a local restaurant located in a city and you want to increase your customers. Local SEO can help you promote your restaurant to users who may work in the area or happen to be passing through and are looking for a restaurant to eat at. If your restaurant/fast food restaurant serves a specific type of food – eg pizza, gyros, stew, lunch menu or Italian food, etc., by doing local SEO you can help people searching for these specific types of restaurant to find you.
You can even advertise the menu options you offer either all day or at specific times of the day or days of the week.
Prospective customers who find you through local SEO services will be able to see photos related to your business, menu items, space, ambiance, and videos of your store. Of course they will also be able to see where your store is located using Google maps and they will be able to get directions from Google to find you. Your business phone or website visit is just a click away, greatly increasing your chances of increasing your sales.
If you also have a Facebook page for your local store, they will be able to visit it or read reviews from other users about your services.
Prospects can also easily share your contact information with other users which is the best free advertising you could hope for in the digital age.
