Local internet marketing has its start in common sense. In this day and age, searching for what you want on a large scale tends to just lead you into labyrinthine big box retailers and mega malls that seem like they have no clue. And who knows how they treat their employees… or where they actually get the products they sell? A lot of times, consumers want to shop for items locally – sometimes even items produced locally. And if you own a business that “keeps it real” by conducting ethical, local operations, local internet marketing may appeal to a niche you never even thought of.
Think about it; if a person wants eggs, don’t you think they would rather deal with the farmer a few miles away who walks into his chicken coop at 8 and gets the eggs when they’re still warm… when the alternative is to go to the Massive Mega Store, who got their eggs “who knows when” from “who knows where?” It often confers a massive advantage to be locally based – so why not market your goods and or services from that particular frame?
And if you operate in an area where there is a reasonable population base, there are just bound to be local internet marketing venues to which you can submit your site. Craig’s List is a great national example – nearly every city in the US with a population greater than 50,000 has their own section, in which you can post about specific events, solicit volunteers, hire employees, ply your trade… even find a date, if you want to take a break.
And obviously, if there are other businesses based in your area, if the niche they serve is even reasonably close to yours you may have a link exchange situation in the making. For instance, if you produce environmentally friendly tires made out of recycled plastic bottles, and then subsequently re-recycle those tires into brand new ones, the local car dealership’s web site might find some use in your product line – and you might find a BUNCH of customers amongst people who are interested in cars and likely to need tires.
So remember the old slogan – “think globally, act locally.”
