Did you know that there are over 500,000,000 unique local searches performed on Google each month?
That’s HALF A BILLION searches every month!
And here’s another fact about local marketing…
The Yellow Pages suck! Its on its last leg as a viable marketing tool.
This is for 2 main reasons:
- Its expensive…it costs upwards of thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars a year. That means it takes a lot of sales to cover your investment.
- Its outdated and irrelevant. I know I throw mine away instantly now…right in the green recycle bin in my garage. Most people under 35 do the exact same thing too. Now, I’m sure some people still use it from time to time, but that number is shrinking fast.
So…now you know that Google local search is exploding and that the Yellow Pages is becoming irrelevant.
Google Local must be really expensive then right? I mean if you were able to steal HALF A BILLION eyeballs each and every month from the Yellow Pages, you would charge a pretty penny, right?
I would to…
But Google doesn’t charge a penny.
Nothing at all. Totally free.
And you will at the VERY top of the search results..above the organic listings.
