Sara Mannix, Founder and CEO, speaking to small and medium sized businesses about the importance of getting found online.

Today, more people are going online to research products, services, and companies before they reach out to salespeople. Why? Because buyers can easily access more information about products, services, and companies on their own.

As long as people continue using the phrase “Google it,” your search engine rankings can dramatically affect your website traffic, leads, and sales.

Searches on Smaller Screens are Growing

In 2015, Google announced that- for the first time ever- searches on mobile devices outpaced searches on desktop devices. The rise of mobile searches presents a new challenge for getting found because there is noticeably less room to display websites in the search results on these tiny mobile screens (versus search results displayed on desktops).

If you’re not showing up at the top of the search results, then your window of opportunity is quickly shrinking.

SEO, PPC, & Local: Which is Best?

It seems that almost every business has finally come to the realization that if they want to reach today’s customers then they must get found in the search results. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that every business should invest all of its efforts in SEO alone.

Businesses can use multiple tactics to get found in the search results, including SEO, paid search (Pay-Per-Click), and local optimization. While SEO may be the best option in some situations, paid search can be more beneficial in others. As a result, you need to understand how each one can help you get found and crush the competition.
