Did you launch your big Google AdWords campaign only to find out, hours later, that Google rejected your new ad? If so, here’s what you have to know to resolve the issue and ensure that it doesn’t happen again.
Wondering if local advertising is right for your business? If you can answer 'yes' to any of the questions below, it just might be the marketing solution you've been looking for.
As a small business owner, you know you need to be advertising on Google in order to get in front of high-intent local searches. With 85% of consumers using search to find local businesses and a staggering 78% of local-mobile searches resulting in offline purchases, search has become a critical element in the health of today’s small business.
This year, we started a video series to highlight local businesses and the importance of supporting them. Small businesses and brick-and-mortars are our primary customers and partners, so we thought that they deserved to be in the spotlight. Through our #ShopLocal series we've had the chance to meet with several wonderful small business owners and tour their unique stores. It has been great. This experience has given us a brand new prospect on how these businesses operate and what they need in order to succeed—and how we can help them grow.
It’s a dog-eat-dog world. When it comes to growing market share, more often than not, that means stealing it from another competitor. One business's gain is another's loss.
In local SEO and advertising, everything is relevant. It’s not enough simply to rank on Google and Yelp; you want to outrank than your competitors. It’s not enough to bid on your keywords; you want to outbid your competitors to get a top position and the lion’s share of the clicks.
Of course, outranking or outbidding an established competitor is easier said than done, particularly if you find yourself playing the cash-strapped underdog. Without the brand recognition to compete on mindshare, the budget to compete on marketing spend, or the SEO partnerships and content machines to compete for organic search traffic, small businesses often crumble under the pressure of competing with established leaders in a battle of Goliath proportions.
