Ranking highly in a Google search is fast becoming a science of it's own.
If you are starting a business, there are some simple steps to be taken if you want to be found quickly.
If you have an established business, but are having trouble getting a good search result, you can supercharge your local marketing and not only start competing effectively in Google, but start to outperform your local competitors with Local Area Marketing.
Local Area Marketing. What is it?
It is quite simple really. Multiple, consistent, keyword optimised, online references, linking back to your website assist you in being found prominently in the search engines. Consistent means same business name, address, phone number, keywords, web address, email etc. Stop right here if you do not have a website. Call 1300 097 597, speak to Josh who can advise you if a website will be of benefit to your business. It is a simple cost/benefit thing, an ROI thing. Now more than ever, with low cost of entry, most businesses should have a website.
At StartMarketing, we have built a web design and web marketing business with client needs in mind.
Our local area marketing strategy increases your online exposure with local business listings on our feature rich, online local community and business directories, with full page listings, images, business reviews, social network integration and direct contact forms.

Many business owners sign up to online business directories themselves which can help your website SEO, but most business owners donít keep record of which online business directories they have signed up to and donít keep them up to date and consistent with their website information and this has a negative impact on the search ranking.
From just $150 Quarterly, we take care of your online local area marketing. Call Start Marketing today on 1300 097 597 and ask about Local Area Marketing.
Treat Google like a smart person. Avoid inconsistencies in phone numbers, addresses, products and services etc. across your online directory listings and change or update content from time to time and you will be ahead of the rest.
Google loves an established business, with multiple online references and consistent products, services and contact details across each. It also loves current information and can detect whether or not you are actively maintaining your online business information.
So, directory listings work well to get your business the exposure you want, as long as you maintain them. Most business owners canít as much as recall which online directories they have signed up to, let alone keep them consistent and current.
We know itís a drag, but it is highly beneficial marketing and thatís why we do it for you with our Local Area Marketing package.
