In a world where local telephone directory use is down almost 70% nationwide, your potential customers are using search engines to find business phone numbers or searching to find address information about local businesses such as contractors, lawyers, restaurants and local merchants.

What do you do when you want information or answers? It’s likely YOU also search the web to find the answers you’re looking for!
For whatever reason, when it comes to your own business, you seem to ignore those same facts. In a room full of 50 people I said “raise your hand if you use the internet to find answers or services”.  Every…single…person raised their hand.  “Good”, now look around. If I took 50 strangers off the street and asked the same questions, 85% would also say yes, so that means your prospects, your potential new business  is searching for you online. Are they finding you?

For most businesses, being found for local search terms can literally make the difference between success and failure.

If not, you are losing potential customers to businesses that are.
