Local Lead Generation and Tracking

Local Lead Generation and Tracking

Spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars on outbound or non-organic lead generation is yesterday’s lead generation solution. Today’s local search landscape is ripe for organic search marketing. If you are neglecting the power of local SEO (search engine optimization) your marketing mix is suffering. And, if you are not tracking your local efforts there is no way to analyze what is and what is not working.


 

The Local Online Marketplace Today

Having a website for your business is great. In fact, it is a necessity. Unfortunately, having just a website is not good enough. Without optimization, consumers searching for the services you offer will not find you. In today’s congested online marketplace, only an optimized site will be found by consumers looking for a local business.  Having a “nice” website is not enough.
