San Diego, CA, United States, 2010/12/05 - San Diego Internet marketing consultant teaches small business owners strategies they can use to leverage the power of the Internet to increase sales and profits.
According to some studies, 90% of people searching for products and services on the Internet never search beyond page one. That means a business whose website does not appear on page one is that for all practical purposes invisible to online shoppers.
According to David Carleton, president of Local Business Marketing Success and a San Diego Local Business Marketing Consultant, "just having a website is not enough, in fact it's just the beginning. In most instances, if your business isn't on page one or at the very least page two of Google, your business doesn't even exist. And if people can't find you, they can't buy from you."
"To make matters worse, take a look at all the time money and resources business owners spend creating that beautiful websites that 90% of your their clients and customers will never see," continued Carleton. "It is for that reason, that I create the 7 Steps to Local Business Marketing Success guide"
Many "brick and mortar" businesses spend a lot of time, money and resources sending prospects to their physical place of business, then all but forget to do the same for their website.
"Not having a totally integrated Website and Internet Marketing strategy for your small business will cost small business owners sales and profits day after day, year after year! This guide was created to provide small business owners the tools they need to begin to dominate the search engines, generate more qualified leads and ultimately increase sales." said Carleton.
Strategies included in the report include, search engine optimization, video marketing, social media, lead generation and conversion, follow up marketing and referral marketing. Owners looking to pick up a copy of the report, can do so by visiting the company's website.
