Local SEO Marketing: Increase Search Ranking Via Publishing

Publish or perish! As true of 21st century marketing as it has been of academia.

How? Why?

Local SEO Marketing is a specialized for of Inbound Marketing, which is both the most effective (cheapest cost per lead) of ANY form of marketing ever, AND is based on making it easy for your prospects to find your business website through organic search.

The activity that makes it work is….. You guessed it….. Publishing!

Any “expert” who encourages you to focus excessively on technical tricks is not an expert you want to work with.

When you turn your website into a repository of useful and relevant information that your customers and prospects need and appreciate, it becomes an “Internet watering hole” where people come in their efforts to answer their questions and solve their problems. And… the real beauty of this mechanism is they find you without looking FOR YOU.

I will use us as a case in point.

Bill Belew and I worked together for about 18 months and provided Inbound Marketing services to clients. His prior 8 years as a professional blogger (selling advertising) laid the foundation for help people sell their products and services.

We thought we could short cut our own process by selling Inbound Marketing through outbound channels (meetups, presentations, speaking engagements, etc). It’s working, but it takes time. At some point Bill and I independently and simultaneously came to the conclusion we were being untrue to ourselves.

We were selling Inbound through Outbound.

So we starting publishing about Local SEO Marketing and Inbound Marketing on our website.

In two months, our ranking for the phrase “local SEO marketing” has increased from page 45 to page 5, as reported by Google Webmasters Tools.

Since then Bill and I went our separate ways, and now I’m winding up this site for the same phrase.

I’ll let you know when we’re on page 1.

Need more traffic, more leads, more business? Talk to us. We know how!

Yes, I want more leads
