Indianapolis is Digital Marketing.
Indianapolis and the State of Indiana has always been on the forefront of the internet marketing and digital marketing industries. An Indianapolis Star article, called us a “hotbed of digital marketing“. Indiana can lay claim to information technology gurus like Mark Cuban and Scott Jones (he’s the ChaCha.com founder).
We realize that a local SEO firm should know how important it is for the small plumbing, electrician, roofing or insurance agency to increase their Google ranking. Because we aspire to be the best Web Design firm in the area, we know how good design affects ranking. We manage the small businesses Facebook Business Page, their Twitter profile, however social media marketing management is important now more than ever!
Social Media Marketing. Beyond the Facebook update.
Great Social Media Marketing gives the customer and the small business a connection like no other. An effective social media marketing management and consulting firm, can help the small business owner quickly address any customer concerns and/or feedback with lightening efficiency.
We’ve seen business owners fail at Social Media Platforms like Twitter or Facebook? Even a small well planned, executed social media marketing strategy, can make a big impact. A small business using the internet marketing and social media platforms of Instagram, You Tube, Facebook, and Google+ naturally increase quality, engaged traffic. That increase that ultimately leads to more conversions and more sales!
Bad Social Media Reviews Can Kill a Business
We have clients who are authors of mental health workbooks, clients that sell fire retardant spray and teen fantasy novels. There are some that may believe because an author may lack a storefront, they don’t need a Facebook Business Page. That’s a bad move. Close to 70% of all adults use Facebook as either their first or second guide about a business. Imagine the plumber that never took the time to create a business page. What message does the lack of a Google My Business Profile send to a prospective customer?
Even if, a the small business owner never took the time to own their profile, doesn’t mean a profile won’t be created. A one-star review on Google can kill a sale for that business. Owning a small business is difficult enough! Adding another area, like social media, can almost guarantee failure. As more consumers turn to smartphones to find local businesses, Facebook has become the new yellow pages and word-of-mouth rolled into one. One of the best social media marketing strategies for small business is a consistent follow up as well a consistent social media posting calendar.
What about blogging or citations?
Blogging is an important aspect to a great content marketing strategy. Though, like any other part of a great Digital Marketing strategy, it is very important. There are millions of searches done on Google on a daily basis. A great blogging and content marketing plan, is almost like a fisherman’s net. It may take a 60 to 90 days to really gain traction and when executed well, our proven track record demonstrates that we increase search engine rankings with lightening speed. (It’s the Honeybadger in us. We rank where we want… And we do it fast.)
What is a citation and how does it help?
Surprisingly, prospective customers don’t rely only on the Search Engines to find your business. Sometimes, those thousands of local directories exist on the web are used by search engines to help give a customer a way to find your business.
Ideally, a small business owner wants the local search result to result in more business. With our local citation service, we will get your business listed on as many of those local directories as possible. It’s a key ranking factor with your local Indianapolis SEO strategy.
Does website design make a difference?
While local directory citations are essential for Electrical, Plumbing, or pretty much any other home services businesses, we’ve discovered that most of those businesses don’t have a well structured, useful website design. When you learn that Ratel SEO is the BEST SEO for YOUR INDIANA SMALL BUSINESS, you’ll feel that much more assured that you’re further ahead of your competition. At Ratel SEO have excellent affordable web design services for small businesses. The way we’ve been able to help pastors better connect with church members is enough to make us proud.
Without information, the search engines rely heavily on whatever information they can find. Part of any digital marketing, search engine optimization strategy is checking where your competition is listed, and where they aren’t. We want your small business to rank at the top of the search engine results, when and where you want, you’d better believe that local digital and internet marketing, with name, address and phone number (NAP) consistency in that arena is a must. Without the right website design or the right number of local citations, would make as much sense as building a beautiful house, on sand.
