Stockholm, Swaziland (PressExposure) October 19, 2011 -- All local businesses want more customers, however, with trends moving online, most local business owners are not positioned to take advantage of search engine traffic and the mobile boom. Instead, most are still using out-dated marketing methods, or no particular methods at all.
With 80% of customers coming from within 5 miles of a business location, and 50% of all purchases preceded by an internet search - whether you own a hair salon, a coffee shop, a dental clinic, a print shop, or a restaurant- it's essential to be well-positioned in the local search engines in order to get noticed, and tap into an audience you would otherwise miss.
There are many low-cost tools and strategies available, but most local business owners are simply not aware of them. With easy implementation, a local business can gain more exposure, build an Internet presence, attract more customers, and increase their sales.
GLMFusion was launched to service local businesses and assist them in making the most of online marketing strategies, maximising their exposure, and creating a buzz in their local market.
"Through proper positioning, social media marketing, and mobile platforms, businesses can stand out from the crowd and create a loyal following in their local area. Many local business owners aren't thinking in terms of online strategies, simply because they don't realise just how many local searches are done online everyday, for their particular products and services," says Lyndelle Clarke, co-founder and CEO of GLMFusion.
"People are now looking for social proof, reviews, and recommendations, like online reviews, or Facebook 'Likes', on business pages. They want to know, like, and trust you, before they buy from you. Therefore, if you don't have a good web presence and reputation, it could potentially be hurting your business."
With competition increasing and traditional advertising methods no longer as effective as they once were, GLMFusion works to position their clients online, and provide them simple, but highly effective marketing solutions.
"Being able to clearly communicate why people should buy from you, while staying in constant contact with your customers through social media marketing, creates customer loyalty. This is what will have them returning again and again. We have found this to be an effective long-term business strategy, enabling growth and sustaining local businesses. With social media and other online strategies, online marketing for local business has never been easier," says Lyndelle.
"Our mission is to support local business owners in achieving their online marketing goals."
GLMFusion offers a range of basic packages as well as specialised premium services. By creating a simple, sustainable marketing strategy, tailored to the budget and goals of each business, GLMFusion assists their clients in gaining more exposure in their local market, with a strong focus on conscious business and sustainability.
