How To Dominate Your Service Business In More Than 1 City

admsearc : March 26, 2015 3:28 pm : Uncategorized

Local business online marketing is one so important for any business owner. This is why competition online is so fierce. Many other business owners in the same field are competing for the top spots in Google in the same city. Whichever companies in that city that show up on Page 1, essentially dominate their market and receive 100% free leads for your services. However, with increased competition, the need to be innovative and think outside the box become more prevalent everyday. A great way to setup additional “businesses” online is through obtaining additional websites and additional phone numbers. Let us explain.

Say you own a cleaning company in Fullerton California and you’re now on Page 1 of Google. Chances are, you’re only going to show up in the search engine results when someone types in ‘cleaning company Fullerton California”. But what if you wanted to show up for Anaheim or Yorba Linda or even Laguna Beach? This is why you need multiple websites with their own unique addresses and phone numbers. If your business can show up as an additional location in other cities, effectively you’re able to dominate not just one city, but as many as you want. But who wants to have 5, 10 or 15 mobile phone plans or landlines? You don’t. This is why you would need a company like Hosted Numbers which specializes in providing available phone numbers in your city which will all forward to 1 phone of your choosing. Brilliant right?

Upon visiting their website, you can select any phone number of your choosing (preferrably a telephone number with the proper area code and a pre-fix that is most common in the city you are targeting). Grab the phone number and immediately forward it to your current phone. The next steps are to build a website with all unique content and your new phone number, get added into the major search engines and register it online. Of course you’re going to need to reference that telephone number with all of the hundreds of citation  sites out there to give you maximum exposure. Over time and with the proper optimization, your new “business” or “location” can show up on Page 1 of Google, allowing you to tap into a whole new city. More cities = more revenue. It’s been done and proven many times over.

If you feel you need help with this, we’re your experts. The Search Kings knows the exact way to do this so you won’t get banned from Google (this can happen if you do not know what you are doing), and enjoy multiple listings for your service business. Don’t forget to check out Hosted Numbers, as they are the industry leader in providing inexpensive phone numbers to not only track your calls and leads, but serve as a major piece in your multiple location listing strategy. Call us today for help getting you started in dominating your local area. We have references to prove it.

admsearc : March 11, 2013 4:00 pm : Uncategorized

Guest posting is a great way get great  back links from other places on the web pointing toward your website. It is the idea of approaching a blogger and asking them if you can write a post or article that they can post on their website, with a link to yours. They receive updated content and you receive a link. When it comes to guest posting it’s important to identify bloggers in your relevant niche and ask them if you can guest post. You can write a guest post on pretty much any topic as long as it matches the theme of the blogger’s website.

For example, if you have a website about video games then you will want to guest post on another gamer’s website. This post or article that you create with a link to your website will not only help optimize your site in the search engines but can also drive relevant traffic as well. Sometimes it can be tricky to get a guest post approved because the blogger may receive dozens of requests per day. If you’re looking for help with driving traffic and help improve your site’s SEO….

Local SEO For Businesses Is Crucial!

admsearc : August 30, 2012 5:30 pm : Uncategorized

Marketing for local businesses has become harder and harder as competition increases in local markets. The more competitive a market is, generally the more expensive it become to get your name out there. The yellow pages can be very expensive and every year the number of people using the book decreases. Flyers are good, but the response rate can be very low until a large (and expensive amount) of testing is done to increase those responses. So how is a local business supposed to effectively marketing online without breaking the bank?

Enter, local business marketing on the internet. Each year, more people turn to search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing to find services in their area. You may have noticed when typing in “plumber” or “plumber Los Angeles” that a number of businesses show up in the results. The people who’s businesses appear at the top of those results get more targeted prospect calls than people who do not show up in those listings. Simply because they have been able to make their website “relevant” for the specific keywords that the user typed in. Thus, the search engines put them on Page 1 and they get all of the FREE leads; day after day while their competitors lose out.

EXPERIMENT:

Do a search for your business type + your geographic location (EX: flood cleanup dallas). Does your website show up on Page 1? Do you even have a website yet? Chances are there are hundreds of people searching online each month for your services, specific to the area you service and they cannot find your site! Without leads or calls,  your business is on it’s deathbed.

Groupon’s Stock – Why It Has Predictably Declined

admsearc : July 13, 2012 4:35 pm : Uncategorized

Most everybody has heard of the company Groupon. It offers major deals on restaurants, products and services in you local area and beyond. Who doesn’t want an awesome deal on house cleaning, Italian food, teeth whitening or even used tires? Up to 80% off! Here is the problem.

Business owners make very little money from Groupon’s compensation system. Essentially they brow-beat a business owner into dropping prices for services at 50% less or more. Then they take HALF of the money from the already discounted price. One business owner in Salt Lake City calculated the numbers and realized he would lose $3 per transaction. How can this benefit the business owner if they are losing money everytime?

When the company went IPO it didn’t go so well for Groupon. So far it is valued at less than half of the IPO price. Google offered billions for the 2 year old start-up of which the owner Andrew Mason promptly turned down. Bad move. Combined with the lack of profit for the business owners and logistical issues with redemption of the certificates in certain industries, the business owner side of the Groupon plan is mostly negative.

The author of this article has done extensive research into a particular niche (cleaning services) on multiple forums and after reading the experiences of every business owner from all of the U.S.; not a single owner had a completely positive experience. Mainly because there was little to no profit after Groupon took their fees. How can a public company have a business model which only serves the consumer? It won’t last long because it seems many vendors have already been dissatisfied from the beginning with Groupon and have spread the word to their colleagues.

In Groupon’s defense, a Groupon offer DOES help get the word out about a local business. It could bring in hundreds of new customers or clients depending on how many offers the business owner decides to put out. This can lead to people wanting to use their services again. However, since these owners are in business to make money, that key element to Groupon’s business strategy falls way short.

For local businesses wanting to market their products or services, a more traditional approach is in order. Internet marketing can be very lucrative if one knows how to do it. Between paid online advertising and Search Engine Optimization, a local business can easily acquire customers at a normal profit scale.
