Optimizing Google Local (formerly Places), Yelp and ensuring there are ample citations will bring more local business to you. People are increasingly becoming mobile and this changes the inbound marketing implications significantly. We have the tools and know-how to enable better local results.
Many of the search engines display results to help mobile users locate and find exactly what is most relevant and nearby. It’s not always your website that will have an opportunity to be listed near the top. There are far too many services competing for this space. Local optimization doesn’t fight the system, it simply plays by the rules and gets your message on other websites in the right position.[/lead] [tabs type="simple" position="top-left"] [tab_title]Google Local[/tab_title] [tab_content]
What’s great about having a small or medium-sized business is you can direct your online marketing campaign at a local audience and have a much better chance of ranking high in search results. Making things even easier is Google’s habit of offering searchers local results as opposed to broad, nationwide listings.
However, for Google to recognize your business as a local establishment and place it in appropriate search results, you have to optimize your web properties correctly and properly claim your Google business page. This is where Spark Logix Studios can help. We enhance all your pages with local markers, so Google knows exactly what your site is about and your geographical audience.

Citations are mentions of your business’ name, address, and contact information on various places throughout the internet.

However, if your citations are inconsistent or lacking, your business is at a big disadvantage in terms of SEO and targeting local search traffic.
We can uncover all your current online citations, implement cross referencing, and fine-tune them so they are all feeding search engines the same, correct information. Also, we’ll assist you in acquiring more citations on blogs, professional and industry directories, telephone pages, social sites, and local business directories. With such an assortment of citations, your brand will have much more visibility, and your Google Local page will have greater power to rank highly.
Not only will Spark Logix Studios help you get citations and claim those you may not know about, but we’ll also continue to track them, monitor their accuracy, and balance this strategy with other inbound marketing initiatives for a comprehensive campaign. Furthermore, we’ll keep an eye on the competition’s citations, so you always stay one step ahead.[/tab_content] [tab_title]Directories[/tab_title] [tab_content]
The days of searching through phonebooks for businesses are long gone. Today, nearly everyone uses their online equivalents — search engines and directories. With directories, consumers can see a list of local businesses (just like with a traditional phonebook); however, users often get added information, such as a URL, review, map and driving directions, pictures, and more. Knowing that consumers flock to these sites for their convenience and free information, it’s important your business has a presence on multiple directories if you want to be found online. Directories are fantastic at improving sales because they make it easy to connect with customers at the exact moment when they’re searching for your products or services.

With the availability of business, geographical, and social directories, there is a multitude of places for your brand to make a mark.
Many of them are free while others charge a fee for their services. With our experience as a guide, we’ll utilize the best combination of free and paid directories, so you get the biggest impact while minding your budget.[/tab_content] [/tabs]
