Driving qualified website traffic is the process of attracting the right prospects to your website. These are people who are actively searching for your products or services.

Online and Social Media Marketing
In order to generate leads and drive traffic to your website you need to have a solid online marketing strategy in place. Your strategy should include a mix of Local search marketing and social media marketing.
Local Search Marketing is search marketing that is localized to target the local Search Engine Results Page (SERP). This type of marketing is great for any local businesses that have a physical location and would like to create a local online presence to show up on the local search results page. The reason local search results are important is because people are searching more online for a business, rather than looking for in the Yellow Pages. Even Yellow Pages has an online business listing now.
By creating an online presence, you build trust in the local community. One way to do that is through different business listing services like Yelp and Google. Ask customers to leave reviews and make sure all your information is complete and accurate because all this information affects your Local Search Rankings. Also, make sure you address any positive or negative remarks such as shout outs and complaints from your customers. Don’t leave their complaints without a response or if they gave you a shout out respond by letting them know you appreciate their gesture.
You can also use on page search engine optimization to do a more localized search marketing. This depends on many factors and there are many different approaches depending on the size of the business and the pages of the website. For example, if you only have one location you can dedicate one page on your website to your location and make sure you mention the location in the keywords or if you have multiple business locations in different cities you can build a page for each location and optimize each page for local keywords.
Another way to do local search marketing would be to do a pay per click (PPC) campaign with localized options. You can target your campaign to a specific location. This way it is easier to handle your campaign and you can anticipate and predict the trends effortlessly because the population and the geographic area is much smaller and your target demographic has many common characteristics. For instance, they live in the same city, they are in a certain age range, etc.
Local Search Marketing can put your business on the map and create an online presence for you, but another great way to create an online presence is by Social Media Marketing. Visit Neolynx’s Blog about social media marketing to learn more.
