Venterra Realty

Big results from Local SEO
Think back to the last time you made a significant purchase. Did you buy from the first business you found or did you spend some time exploring options, reading reviews, and validating your decision?

If you’re like most consumers, you did some research beforehand. In fact, consumers are often 60 to 70% of the way through the buying process before they contact a business as a potential lead. So you need to be proactive about building the presence you want them to see in the places they’re doing their homework.

That’s why it makes sense to extend your online presence beyond your website using social media, email marketing, paid search and local directories.

Recently, those local directories — sites like Yelp, CitySearch and Yellow Pages — became even more important, as Google rolled out an update (known as Pigeon) to provide more accurate and relevant search results. Directory sites can help more customers find you, but only if the information listed about your business is current and accurate.

However, claiming those local listings and keeping them current can be tedious and time-consuming.

Consider Venterra Realty, who operates over 50 apartment communities from North Carolina to Texas.
