WHAT IS LOCAL SEO?
Search engine optimization, or “SEO” is the process of optimizing many different factors so that search engines will rank you higher in their search results. Some businesses are looking to reach a larger audience, such as nationwide or even international. Local SEO focuses on increasing presence within a localized market, such as a town, neighborhood or metropolitan area.
Let’s say you owned an auto repair shop. If a potential customer in your area needed their car repaired, chances are they would use a search engine like Google and type something like “auto repair shop near me”.
On the first page of search results there would be a short list which would include a map, ratings, hours, phone number, directions, etc. There would be be other results on the page, but there’s a 92% chance they will choose one of the businesses in that short list. Ideally, that’s where you want to be. And getting there is achieved with Local SEO.
HOW MUCH COULD IT BE COSTING YOU?
Obviously the answer to that question will depend on your industry and local market. But regardless it is a fact that if you are not ranking in search engines and your competitors are, they are getting more business than you. When it comes to making purchases from local brick and mortar businesses, more and more people are using some sort of search engine to inform their buying decisions. It’s mostly Google, but it can also be directory sites like Yelp, or GPS mobile apps like Apple Maps or Facebook Places.
And it’s not just showing up that counts, but also looking credible and trustworthy through good reviews and ratings. Have you ever found two identical items on Amazon but one had 10,000 5-star reviews and the other had less than 100? Between the two, which would you buy? Exactly. Luckily, our Local SEO service addresses all of this and more.
SEO is available with all of our BrandGrow™ packages.

Do you guarantee I will see results?
Yes, we absolutely guarantee that we will get results for you. How we define and measure results will vary depending on your current situation, overall goals, and strategy we deploy. As part of our strategy, we will define a set of metrics that we will be tracking, as well as some target numbers for them. You will be able to monitor the performance in real time, 24/7 through your client dashboard. And if we don’t deliver results in 6 months or less, you absolutely should fire us!
Does SEO work for every type of business?
Yes! As long as your business offers a viable product or service, properly executed SEO can move your website higher in search rankings and drive more sales.
How much does Local SEO cost?
That depends on many factors and there’s no universal answer. Generally speaking though, you should stay away from “budget SEO” providers as their shady methods will probably get your business penalized by search engines (which is expensive to fix later on). At Ripe Marketing SEO is available in all of our marketing plans, and we use only the most professional and proven methods.
How long does it take?
Truly effective SEO takes time. Many of our customers start to see positive momentum in 3-4 months. In fact, over 82% of our small business clients can reach the 1st page of Google after 6 months if the right conditions are met. However, SEO should not be thought of as something you do and then stop once you see results. Rather, SEO should be though of as an ongoing investment in your business that rewards you more the longer you do it.
