Local SEO Services
Are you looking to stand out from the competition? Local customers are searching the internet every day for businesses like yours, so you need to ensure you're capitalizing on that with your own local SEO (search engine optimisation) campaign. Local SEO should, without a doubt, be the most important digital marketing strategy you use. With everyone having access to the internet in their back pocket, more and more people search for businesses nearby every day.
Use a Google My Business Profile
Google has a great way to help your local SEO, and that's with a Google Business Profile (formally known as Google My Business). As one of the most essential local SEO services, getting a Google Business Profile can help you get listed on Google search and Google maps in your area.
That's making your business details more visible, and best of all, it's free. Most of all, always ensure your Google Business Profile is well optimised to give your business the best chance of success. Google will need to verify your business before your Google My Business profile shows up, so you must get that done first.
Optimising your Google Business Profile
Chances are your Google Business Profile might already exist on Google, and if that's the case, all you need to do is claim your profile. Provide your profile with a lengthy description of your business because more information is better for Google and your customers.
Make sure your address and phone number are on your profile. It needs to be accurate and up to date. Finally, upload as many pics as you can of your business. The establishment, your products or services, staff, it'll bring credibility to your business.
Use it as a way to update customers about news and offerings. Lastly, focus on getting as many positive reviews on your Google Business Profile as you can. And always, always respond to any reviews, good and bad.
NAP and Citations
For local SEO, the NAP is crucial. NAP stands for Name, Address, and Phone number. Not just for your own Google Business Profile, but for any citations that mention it on the web. A citation is a reference made on a website page anywhere else on the internet that happens to mention your business.
Review sites, online directories, social media, and any other place online your business might be mentioned. Inconsistent NAP details can impact your local SEO, so it's essential to make sure it's correct where you can.
Harness the power of Social Networks
The power of social networks is a force to be reckoned with. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. LinkedIn, Snapchat, and TikTok. Pinterest, YouTube, etc. They can all help play a positive role in your SEO. Why? Because it means more locals find your website, which provides you with more opportunities.
Make sure that all your details about your business are filled out correctly on your social media profiles (including your NAP - Name, address, phone number of your business), and be descriptive about your business on those social media profiles.
Be sure to post regularly and tell people about events, news, specials, coupons, and more. Being active on social media will grow your follower count, create more exposure, and boost your local SEO.

I found Glen on LinkedIn as I wanted to use someone local for my new website. I found him incredibly knowledgeable and able to explain things to me in an easy to understand way. My website was completed in the required time and he did a lot of hand holding when we first went live. I've had a great response to my website and would most definitely recommend Thriving Web Design to anyone needing a new website or even to update their old, tired one.
