If your business is anything like the new kid in school, it will want to start establishing its reputation as soon as possible. Nowadays, in the business world, that means creating an online presence. Many business owners think that if their business information is in the Core Data Providers (CDPs) database, that they’ve done enough. However, what they don’t know is that there is a whole wide world of online marketing opportunities. If they’re anything like the new kid, they want to “rule the school,” and in order to dominate your competitive market, it’s important to spread your business out over a variety of local information avenues.
Although CDPs can get your basic business listing out somewhere on the Internet, in order to really establish an online presence, you need to do much more. Local Splash gives clients the ability to be found in local, organic and social results.
One of the ways Local Splash does this is submitting your complete business information to a variety of top directories such as Google Places, Yahoo!, Relevant Yellow, Yelp, Facebook, Merchant Circle, SuperPages.com, RateItAll, YellowBot, Clush, Oodle, AboutUs, Vast and Acxiom. Local Splash also provides “permalinks,” or proof that your business has been submitted to directories. Then using Local Splash’s Back Office platform, you can log in and see all of your placements in one location online. This is a service that CDPs definitely do not provide.
Submitting complete, enhanced, unique and optimized business information to these directories helps your company’s reputation in the eyes of the search engine which will boost your rankings and leads.
Another way Local Splash helps clients get found in the search results is establishing a presence on social media networks. Local Splash will create your Facebook Fan Page and Twitter account, which will give you a new way to connect and provide coupons or offers to your target audience. The company will also create an optimized YouTube video for your business that when combined with video SEO, will boost your business’s search engine rankings.
If you are completely new to the Internet world, or just don’t have a website yet, Local Splash will create a landing page for your business with information about your company, services, contact information and photos. This landing page will contain keywords and categories to help your company reach top rankings as well as a custom, keyword-enhanced URL. If you already have a website, Local Splash will attach this landing page to your site in order to help its SEO.
The services Local Splash provides will help your company create the best possible image online. It combines state of the art methods that will differentiate your business in the marketplace, dominate in the search engines and leave your competitors behind. Although CDPs can lay the foundation, the exposure your company gets using them is no where near the level your company will get when working with Local Splash.
