The Local Marketing Mixup | June 21, 2023
Your Weekly Briefing
Hey there, it's us again with another installment of the Local Marketing Mixup - I hope you've been well this past week. You look great!
This week we're going to recap a recent article published by Search Engine Land titled "Local SEO in 2023: 5 simple ways to dominate local search". It 100% tracks with what we see on the ground as we help thousands of businesses rank higher for "______ near me," so we thought you'd be interested. Yeah, YOU!
If you do the following five things you can't not rank at the top of local search results!
Make sure your title & description tags on your website are great for every single page. If you don't know where to start, go to Bard or GPT and say, "Can you pretty please give me a very SEO-optimized title tag and meta description for this page: [insert URL here]." Do that for every page on your website. (GPT tends to work better if you have access to GPT4 with web browsing)
Get online reviews from your customers. It'll help you rank higher, which will help you get more clicks on your profile, which will in turn help you rank higher. It's a beautiful cycle you can kick off. Need help with reviews? We got that too.
Build out service pages on your website. You should have a page that talks about every service you offer. (pro tip: we find that it works best when you use that service keyword for the URL path. If you're trying to get more customers for your personal training services in Los Angeles, make the URL path: www.yourwebsite.com/personal-training-services-in-los-angeles
Ensure you have your business on all important search platforms and directories and are in sync. We help with this too.
