Welcome, Newest Directory Member of The Mind Body Spirit Network!
My name is Liz Gracia. I am the Founder and Director of Marketing and Client Success Services.
I have been helping alternative, holistic, and transformational business professionals with their online marketing, SEO, and web design since 2009.
It was way back in 1999 when I built my first e-commerce site for my home furnishings store in the Back Bay of Boston that I discovered the power of online directories for getting found on Local Google searches.
In the absence of SEO (search engine optimization) on your own website, submitting your business listing to an online directory, and in particular, a NICHE online directory is a super affordable way to get found and dip your toes into the online marketing world.
I call it a “Starter Kit”.
So, I want you to understand that though we do have significant website traffic every day and significantly growing website traffic, the “strong suit” of an online directory is its ability to consistently rank on Page #1 of LOCAL GOOGLE searches, with proper SEO optimization (though it can still be effective without optimization).
The website traffic and the visibility you receive is very good and getting better every day. It will provide visibility for you for potential clients from all over the world if you work remotely with people online via Zoom video, Skype or phone.
But your ability to get found on Page #1 of LOCAL GOOGLE searches is even better because it’s highly targeted and local.
So stay tuned for tomorrow’s short video as I discuss how you can optimize the written content of your business listing for search.
Ciao for now!
