SEO is first driven by location, so it cannot be more important to be thorough about it when creating business listings on search engines. DO NOT FORGET to enter in ALL your service cities on your Google Business listing, not just the town your physical location is in. And if you have a website, make sure they are all indicated in your content there as well!

When you are consistent in your small business marketing it yields these results:
1. SEO - Regularly posting new content in places like your website's blog or changing page content to stay up to date with what you offer and what your goals are; or posting on social media channels whose posts show up on Google (like Twitter) increases your website's search engine standing.
Our marketing agency is finding a trend with building and service contractors that come to us for help. They just aren’t getting the results promised when they signed up to have a website and business listing created that was supposed to deliver marketing, SEO, and high visibility for leads. Instead, they find they have been paying upwards of $1200 to $1500 a month and are getting nothing but spam emails, if anything at all. As a result, their call to us is usually a last-ditch effort. They wonder if online marketing is an effective means of getting new clients for a local service business, or does it all have to be word-of-mouth and a Facebook page?
After 14 years of helping small local contracting and service businesses, I can tell you that you should expect everything you were promised, but at half the price! We get results for these kinds of companies, period. We do not believe in a set it up and forget it approach, leaving it to automation. We are hands-on everywhere your business is present online EVERY DAY. We don’t rest until you get leads.

I am talking about any service you pay for monthly that told you, “we will build you a website or business listing that you pay monthly to have, and it will do well because it is part of our specialized network for contractors that we do marketing for." But, unfortunately, this usually means that YOU DO NOT OWN your website, and the minute, and I mean THE minute, you cancel, YOUR website vanishes, and the marketing and listings they set up for you vanish!
