How To Increase Revenue with Local Search Marketing?
Your target audience now spends at least 4 hours online a day, and when they need a lawyer, 50% of the head to Google rather than the Yelp. Over 80% of them want to get their inquiries replied and find out about your law office through Yelp as opposed to advertisements, and they as often as possible do their exploration on Google and YELP.
The best strategy really depends on your goals. If you’re looking to generate clients quickly I would point you to Google My Business and Yelp SEO. Now since there are a lot of advertisers in the PPC market this may not come cheap, that’s why I also encourage a strong local and organic strategy. Below are examples of the “personal injury lawyer” you have on a typical Google search.
If you have a physical office in the area you’re trying to rank in you’re eligible to rank in the 3 pack (shown below). These show up for over 50% of searches. It will take time for you to overcome the competition here, but when you do you will know because your phone will start ringing.
