Use your Business’ Local Knowledge with Local Internet Marketing

Small businesses often make the mistake of trying to compete against market leaders. The market leader is committing a lot of resources to stay on top and even if you could commit similar resources it would be a losing proposition. There is a much better way to get better targeted results that are much more cost effective and it is using local internet marketing.

What Is Local Internet Marketing?
This is to use marketing techniques that are aimed at your local area. This makes people that are searching in your local area much more likely to see your results and because you are local it also makes it much more likely that they will purchase from you.

Pay Per Click
One of the most widely used marketing tools that work really well with local internet marketing is pay per click campaigns. The cost per click of popular keywords can be expensive but by narrowing the focus by adding location the cost quickly becomes much cheaper. There are partner companies that help to organize the campaigns and provide exact cost breakdown.

Online Classifieds
One of the areas that a properly orchestrated campaign can have very positive results is in marketing using online classifieds. This is where as many locally focused classified sites are used so that your business becomes highly visible. This can generate many locally based leads and can be adjusted easily to market particular products usually on a monthly basis.

Popular Local Sites
One of the techniques that marketing companies use to find good locally popular advertising sites is to localize searches and then use the results to target advertising and other marketing activities. This can be simply done by doing a localized search in the area targeted and then search for ‘forum’ or ‘blog’. This may return many sites that are not suitable but there are always several that rank highly and are popular in the local community.

Then they can be approached about including advertising for your business on their site. Having a presence on local forums and discussion groups also raise the businesses profile and allows targeted offers to be posted. These are a great way to market to the local community and are very inexpensive.
