SEO Advertising Bundaberg– What will 2016 hold for local business?
SEO Advertising in Bundaberg is a complicated matter, and as we enter into 2016, people are in a mindset where they reflect back on the year that was 2015, and try and work out what life holds in store for them next. This is of course, tough. You can certainly never know what is around the bend, but if you find out the important parts of the past and look for trends you can get a better understanding. This is particularly true for SEO. I want to try and point out to you a number of the major news that have been emerging in 2015 throughout the Bundaberg SEO business and the world. From this with any luck together we can try and find out where to focus our efforts, this will be particularly helpful if you are a local Bundaberg business.
This is the biggest developing trend and it is going to keep improving in significance. This means that if you are anBundaberg business and you are looking for local customers, then this is fantastic. Starting with the changes from Google Pigeon, we saw an emerging pattern that local Bundaberg searches were in fact ranking higher than business with national headquarters, or even places on the other side of town. Why? Because with local searches people want to know what is near them! In 2016 this is going to grow even more taking into consideration the recent Google search quality ratings guidelines https://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.google.com/en//insidesearch/howsearchworks/assets/searchqualityevaluatorguidelines.pdf and also taking into consideration the My Business API as well as other things Google has been up to in 2015 will likely prove that they are investing more time and weighting into local search powers. So with that in mind, there are a few technological areas that will be arising even more in 2016, so look out for them to help with your local search efforts.
Local-boosting tech patterns.
There are a few technology areas which are swiftly growing abroad and are starting to emerge in Australia and it won’t be long before they gain appeal in Bundaberg.
Society is getting more and more used to having around less money and slimmer wallets. Especially with the worldwide sweep (or swipe) of PayWave or PayPass over the past few years and other quick ‘contactless’ paying technologies we are working towards mobile wallets. This will mean 2 things for a local Bundaberg business. 1– you ought to be keeping an eye on growing trends, and make certain you have the ability to actually let people pay– as an example, if you are yet to obtain a PayWave or RFID reader for your ship, then get one. And 2– you can start taking advantage of the mobile nature of paying. This means advertising and marketing, coupons and other fantastic offers that you can send to people on their phones and therefore instantly into their wallets.
Beacons are a little something that has had expanding use overseas and we are discovering them locally now too, but they are practically other ways of getting promos to people locally. It works through Bluetooth, and even a free Wi-Fi, and it merely provides information or a discount to people who are connected or sign up to the Beacon. This means that people at your Bundaberg store, or even wandering past the area will be given more incentive to actually enter the store and make a purchase. It’s a brilliant advertising and marketing tool that will continue to grow in 2016, but I wouldn’t be surprised if technology and development changes this even further throughout the year.
We also will see even greater use of Apps such as Snapchat and Periscope for inventive ways such as advertising. This has been seen in America with national campaigns run by Dunkin’ Donuts and Taco Bell employing these apps. It is incredible how people can keep reinventing ways to get their company out there, and the same might be done for your local company in Bundaberg. Be creative and even explore what other people have done, especially when it comes to social media– if you see something you like, remember of it and find a way to include a related idea into you own strategy.
My closing pieces of parting advice– and these are things that you should do at this moment, today– would be to sign up to an all new Social Media account. Facebook, Google +, Instagram, Pinterest. Choose one you don’t have for your business yet and start a new campaign to reach a new audience. As you reach new people, you will grow your credibility at a local Bundaberg level, and also boost your authority and possibly even become an useful resource for people. This all goes to your local SEO efforts which are key in 2016. So you will probably discover that the future actually looks efficient for Local businesses with trends and technology pushing for even greater interaction at a ‘community’ level. This is great for Bundaberg businesses, so I hope that you are as excited as I am.
