Andrea Lynn Drake has the tools to meet the needs of Contracting SEO

If you didn’t already know it, more people find local services online than anywhere else. Word of mouth is still as powerful as it always was. Now it travels online, and not just from client to client.

Services like Yelp, Google My Business, and Angie’s List all provide a place to get your services rated and bring more attention to what you offer. There are shortfalls, however. Just getting some good reviews doesn’t do what it used to do for your business.

Online Marketing  and SEO for contractors provides a method for putting your company at the top of search results. When customers start looking for your services, they start with Google. SEO provides online marketing strategies that help to put your business before others on the critical first page of results.

Specialized SEO for contractors builds a strategy for increasing your ranking in the Google Map Pack. This generates additional local leads and more business, which keeps the phone ringing. This is a powerful marketing tool that will launch you ahead of your competition.

What’s the Payoff for Investing in SEO for Contractors?

Contracting businesses depend on customers finding them when they search for services online. If your search listing doesn’t come up in top of the first page of local search results, you aren’t going to get traffic. On the other hand, showing up in the map listings surrounding your business will put you in front of most potential customers.  

With 85% of potential clients searching online for contracting services, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to reach the top of the list. If you’re not optimizing your online presence, business is passing you by.

Strategies for increasing your rankings in Google Map searches are often dependent on professional marketing knowledge. It takes experience in local SEO, online marketing, and multimedia integration to put you in front of the potential clients who want and need your services the most.
