Do you desire more local website traffic and new local customers? With nearly all of your potential customers beginning their search online, can you afford NOT to be shown on the first page of Google? Yes, it’s possible, even if your SEO budget is very small.
1st on the List Promotion’s local SEO services are affordable and designed for small businesses that are location specific. In fact, you are at an advantage because Google and the other search engines want to deliver the most relevant results possible and prefer to deliver local search results first.
How Local Search Optimization Works
Our well-rounded local SEO strategy is perfect for any small service type business that operates in a specific city such as restaurants, plumbers, dentists, and hair salons.
Local SEO will optimize your website for location-specific keyword phrases. These phrases are highly descriptive and reflect the way people actually search. For example, you’ve probably done a search similar to “Mexican restaurants Vancouver,” which describes both:
- What you are searching for – Mexican Restaurants
- Where you want it located – Vancouver (the location modifier)
Even if you only entered “Mexican restaurants” and don’t enter a city or neighborhood as part of the search phrase, the Search Engines can tell from your IP address where you are searching from and then deliver you “location specific” results.
What Our Customers Are Saying …
My name is Bob and I started my pest control company in March 2016. I started using 1st on the List in August 2016. Prior to using Chris, I tried multiple and various avenues to get customers in my local area. These avenues were costly and not always financially productive. I had a website that I built and of course I needed “some” optimization on it, more like complete optimization on it. Chris set me up on a keyword plan and an optimization program. Within three months I started seeing results. Keep in mind that when I started seeing results it was also the slow time for pest control. Fast forward to March 2017, the phones started exploding. The reason for this timeframe (Aug to Mar) in my business is that of course it is pest control and it starts really hopping in the Spring. I am only on my second year and I am up 700 to 1000% over the previous year in sales. I have owned multiple businesses including restaurants, automotive repair, etc., and I have never seen or heard of growth like this. I plan on growing my business using these folks, and these folks only in the foreseeable future. I am a one-man operator and I routinely gain 40+ customers per month which is unheard of in pest control. They have extremely competitive rates for the results they deliver. I cannot say enough about 1st on the List. You absolutely will not be disappointed in the results.”
