Are You Using Local Landing Pages?
Local website landing pages are used specifically get visitors to respond to a Call To Action (CTA). If you are not using these then you might be missing a trick! Today we are going to deepen our understanding of local landing pages and understand the need for them in the realm of searching.
Landing pages will look like regular web pages such as your Home page, About Us or Meet The Team pages for example. Certainly in brand and style they will represent your business. However, they will not be as populated with content and they will entice the visitor to engage. Video is a fantastic way of capturing your audience, as we all pause a little longer when a video starts playing.
When we search online, the results will be tailored to our location, whether or not we ask for them to be. The reason for this is that most of the time we are looking for something locally even if we do not explicitly state it. Therefore, even when we do not state the town that we are in, Google will show us some organic local results. If I search for t-shirt printing Colchester on Google and then search t-shirt printing, I still get shown local Colchester based t-shirt printers through the latter search, although I didn't specifically ask for them. Landing pages will help businesses capitalise on appearing in the local and organic searches.
