Optimization Of Local Maps and Directories

A big mistake is not having a constant name, address and phone number in local maps and also in, local directory listings. A company’s physical location should be spelled exactly the same every time. Inconsistencies can hurt your local rankings and minimize the chances of your website and other digital marketing materials from being displayed.

This is an easy fix by first documenting the official company name, address and phone number. For instance there is a difference between Scottsdale Family & Divorce Attorneys and Scottsdale Family and Divorce Attorneys. Also phone numbers and suites. Suite #5 Scottsdale, AZ vs Ste 5 Scottsdale,AZ. Abbreviations and numbers need to be consistent.

To be a successful local service franchise your website must be actively attracting local customers to one or more of your store locations. So, local search optimization must be a high priority and included in any marketing strategy.

One way to improve attracting local customers is by giving each location their own page. You can populate these pages with types services, testimonials and reviews from customers emphasising that specific city location and who they are most like to receive services from. You can also mention any strategic partners or charities you work with in that area.
