We used a new tool to create a story on “Storly”.

This is the post in case you want to simply read it here:

As a small local business marketing agency, our mission is to help local businesses in the towns in our rural area find greater business success. We offer a range of services that are designed to enhance their online presence and attract more customers. Our services include website design and makeovers, Google Business Profile claiming/creation/optimization, QR code utilization, reputation management/marketing, Facebook business page creation/management/optimization, and video marketing.

When it comes to website design and makeovers, we understand the importance of creating a visually appealing and engaging online presence for local businesses. We see the website as the store’s “sidewalk front window” for their online searching customers. By designing clean, attractive, and noticeable websites, we aim to capture the interest of potential customers and encourage them to learn more about the products and services offered by these businesses.

Another key aspect of our services is claiming, creating, and optimizing Google Business Profiles (GBP). We all know that when people search for a service, product, or business online, the first thing they come across is the list of Google Business Profiles. The businesses that rank in the “top 3” are the most likely to be called or visited. Therefore, having an optimized and well-ranking GBP is critical for today’s mobile-based online customers. We help local businesses in my area claim and optimize their GBP, ensuring that they have a strong online presence and can attract more customers.

QR codes have become increasingly popular in recent years, and we utilize them to help local businesses improve their marketing efforts and engage with customers. QR codes provide a seamless and simple way for businesses to request and receive testimonials and reviews from platforms such as Google, Airbnb, Yelp, and others. Additionally, QR codes can be used to make various tasks easier for customers, such as locating and reading restaurant menus, ordering online, and finding the location of any local business on a map. By incorporating QR codes into their marketing strategies, local businesses can enhance customer convenience and engagement.

Reputation management and marketing play a crucial role in the success of local businesses in my area. In today’s digital world, a business’s online reputation is paramount. Negative reviews, one-star testimonials, and poor ratings can have a detrimental impact on a restaurant or service-based business within seconds. Local businesses need to be aware of all their reviews, respond to them in a courteous and civil manner, and address any negative feedback promptly. We assist businesses in monitoring, managing, and mitigating the effects of poor ratings, ensuring that their online reputation remains strong and positive.

By offering comprehensive marketing services tailored to the needs of small to medium-sized (SMBs) local businesses, we strive to empower them to thrive in the competitive market. Our dedication to website design, Google Business Profile optimization, QR code utilization, and reputation management/marketing enables us to support local businesses in their quest for greater success. Through our efforts, we aim to contribute to the growth and prosperity of the towns in my area, fostering a vibrant and thriving local business community.

As the protagonist of this story, I am proud to own and operate a “local” marketing agency that is dedicated to helping local businesses succeed. By leveraging our expertise and innovative strategies, we are making a tangible difference in the lives of entrepreneurs and business owners in our community. Together, we are creating a stronger and more prosperous local economy, where businesses can flourish and customers can find the products and services they need.

So, what are some specific success stories you can share about how local business marketing has aided YOUR local business in finding a higher degree of success?
