Philadelphia Small Businesses Are Discovering Local Online Marketing

Philadelphia Internet Marketing Consultant

When is the last time you picked up the Yellow Pages to find a local Philadelphia business? If you’re like most people, it was probably years ago. Now think about the last time you used Google to help you do the same thing. It was probably a matter of days. Local online marketing is the future of small business. In fact, it’s not just the future; it’s the present.

If you are not using local online marketing, you are shooting yourself in the proverbial foot. You’re leaving money on the table and giving your competition the upper hand. Hopefully that is enough metaphors to get the point across that you are literally losing money.

There are two basic directions you can go with search engine marketing (SEM); pay per click (PPC) advertising and search engine optimization (SEO). The fastest way, by far, to get your phone ringing and bring new customers through your door, is with PPC advertising.

Some people will tell you that the pay per click (PPC) option is too risky due to all the competition on the Internet. That is true if you are competing with millions of other people around the world, like direct response and affiliate marketers do. For local business marketing, it’s an entirely different ball game.

There is usually not too much competition locally, so the costs are much less, and the odds of a great return on investment are heavily in your favor. The beauty of this method of local Philadelphia online marketing is you only have to pay for the ads that actually get clicked. The prospect actually ends up on your website.

SEO or Search Engine Optimization, on the other hand, does not cost anything per click. The search engine traffic is free. This form of local online marketing involves taking action, on and off your website,  that entices the search engines to show your website on the first page of certain keyword search results.  There are over 200 variables so it can be very time consuming and difficult to get good rankings.

Both of these methods SEM and SEO are valid. It would be hard to go wrong with either one (or both) of them.

Remarketing and/or Retargeting – Philadelphia, PA

Remarketing

Remarketing and retargeting are two similar digital advertising strategies that are often used interchangeably, but they have slightly different meanings.

Remarketing typically refers to the process of showing targeted ads to people who have already interacted with your website or mobile app in some way, such as by visiting a specific page, adding an item to their cart, or filling out a form. The goal of remarketing is to bring these people back to your website or app and encourage them to complete a desired action, such as making a purchase or filling out a form.

Retargeting, on the other hand, typically refers to the process of showing targeted ads to people who have interacted with your brand in some way, but not necessarily on your website or app. For example, retargeting can involve showing ads to people who have visited your social media profiles or engaged with your email marketing campaigns.

In Philadelphia, PA, there are Philly Online Marketing specializes in remarketing and retargeting.  This agency can help you create and execute effective remarketing and retargeting campaigns that can drive traffic and sales for your business.
