Getting your Business Noticed can Be TOUGH

We get it. We really do. Local SEO services might make it seem easy, but the fact is, SEO is a complex, multi-disciplinary marketing channel that is hard for anyone to master while running a business. 

Not only that, Local SEOs are constantly at the whim of Google’s tantrums and algorithmic updates, putting their livelihood on the line and making it difficult to keep the needle consistently moving in the right direction. 

Add to that the increasingly competitive landscape of local markets in virtually every industry, and you have a recipe for one massive headache. 

We don’t want to say we have the BEST Local SEO Services…but we have the BEST local SEO services, and a documented track record of getting clients results to prove it.

We’re ready to go to bat and hit a home run. Put us in coach.

What Is Local SEO? – Give it to me straight

Local SEO Services and Your Business a match made in digital heaven

Search engine optimization plays a critical role in the buyer’s journey, impacting marketing campaigns across the entire spectrum of marketing channels.

Example: Say someone finds your paid advertisement and clicks. The landing page and sales copy look good, but they want validation that you’re not just blowing smoke. So they head to Google and type in your business name looking to see if you have a fully built out website and brand that looks authoritative, has reviews, case studies, product demos/examples, etc.

No matter the entry point into the sales cycle, search can and does impact a prospective customer’s purchase decision.

How Local SEO Services Can Help Your Business Thrive in Today’s Competitive Market

Increase Brand Recognition

When someone says, “Hey do you know a good place for XYZ”, do you want them talking about your business or a competitor? A comprehensive SEO and branding 1-2 punch ensures that your business tastefully penetrates the market, canvasing the community and making sure that when people think about the types of services/products you offer, they think of YOUR company first.

If You’re Not First You’re Last

More than half the battle is showing up when and where your customers (and prospective customers) need and expect you to. This means crafting and executing an SEO strategy around the keywords, search phrases and search intent of your target market.

Attract Hyper Local Web Traffic, Leads and Sales

Many local businesses unknowingly waste time, energy, resources and MONEY on targeting the WRONG audience (often by accident). Local SEO is unique in that search trends can (and do) vary between micro-geographic locations.

Example: Residents in one city might be willing to travel 15 miles to get what they need, while those in a different city might only be willing to travel 5 miles but only East due to traffic or other circumstances. 

We make sure your business is investing in SEO tailored to put your business in front of high-intent buyers who shop in your geographic service area.

Local SEO Services: Campaign Overview

Although each campaign is custom designed to help your business meet its unique goals, budget, timeline and more, there are some key components common to many of the campaigns we develop and implement.

Market Analysis and Competitive Intelligence Deep Dive

Before we even begin, we conduct a sweeping review of your market, consumer behaviors, and competitive landscape in order to determine the best tactical approach to helping you get results fast.

Local Search SEO

Search engine optimization focused on your localized market, community and audience. This component has a core focus on local search intent and the needs of your customers.

Google My Business (GMB)

Arguably the most powerful lead generation tool in local SEO, we set up and optimize your GMB to consistently generate phone calls, inquiries and foot traffic. Ongoing optimization efforts focus on progressively ranking your GMB across your territory, dominating local maps and earning you more customers.

Content Planning, Creation and Publication

Optimized content is the food that fuels the Google beast, informing the search engine about how valuable your page(s) might be for any given keyword, keyword phrase or underlying search intent. Simply put, optimized content designed to exceed the needs and goals of the searcher means better rankings.

Landing Pages

Pages designed to capture audience attention, drive interest, spur desire and spark action (i.e. sales/conversions).

Reviews and Reputation

Reviews and ratings are a major deciding factor for consumers who are determining where to spend their money. Some research shows that even one visible negative review can turn away up to 22% of prospective new customers, with each additional negative review having a negative compounding effect.

Local Citations

Local citations, directory listings, brand mentions, and more have a significant impact on local SEO. But even minor discrepancies between listings can be detrimental. We create, publish and fix key citations for your local market, making sure you have the right citations needed to outperform the competition.

Powerful, Authoritative Google-Trusted Backlinks

The importance of backlinks cannot be understated. But not just any backlinks. We work hard to earn you Google-safe links that pack a punch.

Transparent Performance Reporting

With Epidemic Marketing you always know what’s working and what isn’t. We believe in clear and transparent reporting that focuses on what matters: your KPIs. From incoming phone calls and inquiries, to lead generation, walk-ins and sales, we make sure you have the numbers you need to make the best decisions about your business.
