It sounds like the Grand Lake summer is off to a good start for some businesses. Some more than others, but that’s to be expected. It seems like it just kind of depends what business your in these days.
And with the July 4th Holiday barreling down on us, it’s the perfect time to make sure potential customers can find you.
I’m curious…do you get much business or potential new customers from the internet?
I ask because that is exactly where people are searching for information on the Grand Lake area…not phone books, not the newspapers, but online.
Speaking of newspapers, did you know (of course you didn’t) that I was at Reasor’s in Langley 3 times over the Memorial Day weekend…and there was NOT 1 copy of the ‘local’ paper that so many of you rely on. And I guarantee you I wasn’t the only one trying to find one.
Well, you don’t have that problem when you get your information where people are looking for it…ONLINE!
But searching on the internet does not mean Facebook. It’s people actually searching for information on search engines and using their smartphones and tablets and other fun devices. Did you know that over 90% of ALL smart phone searches return GOOGLE SEARCH RESULTS?
And regarding Facebook, the Next Web recently published data that suggests that only 16% of your Facebook fans see your posts on your fan page. That’s 16% of people that are already fans. Not new people.
One of the websites people are relying on more and more is this site your on right now, Grand Lake Living. With over 1,200 page views in the last 30 days, the site is a great place for your business to be seen and found.
By focusing on events, activities and businesses around Grand Lake we are able to give people searching for information exactly what they are looking for.
So, here’s the deal. You can have your own, exclusive page for your business on the Grand Lake Living website for only $250 for the rest of 2013.
And, when you join at that price, you have the option later on of renewing for all of 2014 for another $250.
So, if you get signed up now, you have the opportunity to have your own branded business page on this very website for the next 18 months for a grand total of $500.
With only $250 of that due now.
That’s $27.88 per month for the next 18 months.
On a website that already gets over 1,000 page views a month (and growing rapidly) of people looking specifically for information on Grand Lake and Grand Lake area businesses.
So what do you really get?
Your business page includes your logo, pictures, all of your contact information, links to your existing website or facebook or whatever, and a write up on why people should call you or come to your store to do business with you. You can see a live page for a Grand Lake business by clicking here.
Information on your business also gets pushed out to several social networks (yes, including Facebook).
If you look at the site and don’t see a category that fits your business, don’t worry…I’ll create one. And, your business can be listed in mulitple categories. This is about helping your business get found on the internet.
One more thing…you can add information about your business throughout the year at no additional cost. Having a sale? Want people to know about some closeout items? Got a big event happening?
Just email the information to me and I will get it published on the active Grand Lake Living blog.
Why is this important?
Because the more pages of information on the web and the more places on the internet people can find information about your business, and specifically about things going on (sales, closeouts, what’s up this weekend, etc)…the more likely they are to find that information when they are searching for all things Grand Lake.
And the more likely they are to call or stop by and do business with you. It’s a numbers game! More is better!
This is all really easy for you…you don’t have to do anything but pass information to me via email and I will get it published.
It’s fast and simple…and that’s good, because you have your own business to run without worrying about getting updated information on the web.
Bottom line, the best way to get found when people are searching for Grand Lake area businesses or events or activities on the internet is to have multiple places where they can find you.
And that’s what Grand Lake Living does for you.
It’s obviously a very affordable investment.
