Irvine, CA, July 14, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The beLocal team introduced a new service this week which increases traffic to local businesses by positioning them on page one of Google maps on the internet.
Pete Lisoskie, founder of beLocal, expressed his excitement today about the launch in a blog post, “Customers have shifted the way they shop for products and services. The Kelsey group recently released a report that stated that 70% of U.S. households now use the internet when shopping locally for products and services. There has never been a better time for business owners to advertise on the internet.” Mr. Lisoskie has been testing the services on one of his businesses, Handyman Matters, a multiunit-franchise remodeling and handyman company in Washington state, for the last 18 months. “We’ve increased our lead flow by over 400 percent in the last 18 months using these methods,” explained Mr. Lisoskie.
According to a report by Constat, 54% of potential customers have substituted internet search for the phone book. Business owners who rely on a steady stream of customers into their locations will benefit by having their business on page one of Google, and especially on Google maps. “Google maps is one of the most cost effective ways for business owners to establish a page 1 presence on Google,” said Mr. Lisoskie.
