When you search for your business on-line do you find your website on page one of Google or in the map section designated for local businesses? If not, there is a good chance new customers are not finding you either. Businesses can no longer afford to ignore the Internet for attracting new clients and customers.
If your business doesn’t already have a strong on-line presence that leads new customers and clients to your website, you are losing money to your competitors. In every industry there is already a business owner who is taking advantage of the Internet to market their company. Isn’t time you did as well?
Can I Afford Internet Marketing?
The Real Question is Can You Afford NOT To Market Your Business On The Internet?
If you want to increase your sales or save your business in this current economy you can no longer afford to ignore the research that proves just how valuable the Internet has become to the success of local businesses. Local Internet search is growing every year. In 2006 local Internet searches grew by 20%. A year later that number increased by 76%. Now it is being reported that 97% of consumers search for local products and services online and those searches lead to purchases. Can you continue to ignore those customers?
What Makes Scorch SEM Different?
Scorch SEM was started by local business owners in Tampa and Sarasota. We know how time constraints prevent small business owners from being able to successfully market their companies on-line. We have been there. It was after years of trial and error that we figured out a simple and cost effective way to market our business on the Internet. Now we want to bring you the same success we have experienced.
First and foremost we are local. We live and work in the same communities as you do. That gives us a greater understanding of the challenges you face. The fact that we built our small business using the same techniques we are going to share with you is something most Internet marketing companies cannot claim. Everything we will use to help your business has already been tested by us on our business. We tried the things that don’t work. Now we are ready to show you what will drive business to your website. Lastly, we listen to you. Most Internet marketing companies tell you what kind of searches will bring you customers, assuming they know your business better than you do. We work with you to develop an Internet marketing strategy that relies on your experience and expertise.
I Already Have A Website. What More Can I Do?
Having a website is just the first step but if you don’t give customers a way to find that website it might as well not even exist. So how can we help new customers and clients find your business using the Internet? The way to do that is by increasing your presence on the first page of Google. The map section at the top of any Google local search is the most prominent real estate on the page and it tells potential clients and customers that your business is in their neighborhood. Next your website needs to show up on page one of Google in those coveted top 10 spots. If you are not one page one, there is less than a 1% chance a potential client or customer will click through to your website. If you don’t have a website yet, we will get you up and running with an effective and affordable website. Most importantly though we want the right customers to find you, the ones who are ready to make a purchase or hire you for the service you provide.
We talk to so many small business owners who think that if they put a website up people will find it. That couldn’t be further from the truth. If you think that is the case would love to meet you and go into further detail on how we can help your business start out on-line or improve what you are already doing. Now is the time to beat your competition to the punch and start to dominate your market on the Internet.
