Why Local Internet Marketing?
If you are a local business (pizzeria, restaurant or other local business in Boston), your main stream of business comes from around your city and the cities near you.
Then you should make sure that your business address, phone number, website address and other important information about your company should show up on Google Places (previously called Google Maps), Yahoo and Bing Maps. If somebody in your local area is searching for your services or products, your business should be listed on Google, Yahoo and Bing maps.

According to Google, more and more searches are related to a specific location and Google is focusing on improving local search results.
The use of Internet and specially the mobile technology has changed how small companies and businesses in general, market their services and products.

PPC Advertising or Adwords Campaigns Management
Pay-Per-Click (PPC) is the fastest and more effective ways to market your business online. At GD WEB Pros, we usually advise our clients to run a small PPC campaign while we work on your Organic SEO, since a new website can take from 2 to 8 weeks to get to first page of Google depending on your main keyword competition.
Market your Business with a Facebook Business Page
One of the biggest social media sites online is Facebook. Just as important as Pinterest or Google Plus and Google Places. GD ProWeb also uses social media site to market your small or startup company.
