Getting more local business from a world wide source.

Getting more local business from a world wide source.

Hi 123 2 WEB blog followers, When the internet first came into existence and all of those website developers around the world started creating websites, one of the most amazing things about it was the fact that you could be getting information from almost anywhere in the world. You might be sitting in your house on the Gold Coast doing a search for a review on a new movie and you could get reviews back from the US, the UK, Hong Kong, etc.

What many of us didn't realise at the time was that the internet was also going to become one of the best ways for small businesses to get more local business in their local area.

These days, if you are looking for a web designer in Oatley or Sydney or a plumber in Mortdale or Surfers Paradise, the first thing most of us do is to go and do a search on one of the major search engines.

For a small business, especially tradespeople, getting more local business can have a big impact on their profitability and time. Think of the savings they could make on petrol if they got more local business. Also, think of the time they could save by not having to travel across the city every time they got a new job.

To make sure that your small business gets more of that local business you need to ensure that your new website has the correct SEO (search engine optimisation). Your website designer will need to ensure that your new website is constructed in such a way that it tells the world what you do and where you do it.

I agree. A website isn't much use if it doesn't get found in the search engines.
