Small business owners need to realize that people aren’t using phone books for anything other than door stops anymore. As of December 2009, all three major search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing) began steering search queries towards local even when a user doesn’t include a local qualifier. Now more than ever, small business owners need to not only create an internet presence, but to control it as well.
Here it is… facts that you need to know.
- 81% of buyers search online before they make their purchase
- 72% of all Yellow Page advertisers DO NOT have a website
- 1/3 of all online searches are for local businesses
- There are 2.6 Billion (with a “B”) local searches per month
- Yellow Page and Newspaper Advertising are dead – unless your target advertiser is over 70
If you are wasting thousands of dollars per month or per year on advertising that doesn’t work – and never will again – let us know. We won’t make you feel bad about it. Most likely you just don’t know the facts.
