SEO Advertising Coffs Harbour– What will 2016 hold for local small business?
SEO Advertising in Coffs Harbour is an intricate matter, and as we enter 2016, people are in a way of thinking where they reflect back on the year that was 2015, and try and figure out what life holds in store for them next. This is of course, challenging. You can never figure out what is around the corner, but if you figure out the vital parts of the past and look for patterns you can get a better comprehension. This is especially true for SEO. I want to try and explain to you a few of the major news that have been emerging in 2015 throughout the Coffs Harbour SEO industry and the globe. From this hopefully together we can try and determine where to focus our efforts, this will be especially beneficial if you are a local Coffs Harbour business.
This is the greatest developing trend and it is going to keep improving in importance. This means that if you are an Coffs Harbour business and you are looking for local customers, then this is wonderful. Starting with the changes from Google Pigeon, we saw a developing trend that local Coffs Harbour searches were in fact ranking higher than business with national headquarters, or even places on the other side of the city. 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 http://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.google.com/en//insidesearch/howsearchworks/assets/searchqualityevaluatorguidelines.pdf and also considering 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 developing even more in 2016, so keep an eye out for them to help with your local search efforts.
Local-boosting tech patterns.
There are a few technology areas which are quickly growing abroad and are starting to emerge in Australia and it won’t be very long before they gain appeal in Coffs Harbour.
Society is getting more and more used to lugging around less money and slimmer wallets. Particularly with the global sweep (or swipe) of PayWave or PayPass over the past few years and other easy ‘contactless’ paying technologies we are shifting towards mobile wallets. This will mean 2 things for a local Coffs Harbour business. 1– you need to be taking note of growing trends, and ensure you have the capability to actually let people pay– for example, if you are yet to buy a PayWave or RFID reader for your ship, then get one. And 2– you can start making the most of the mobile nature of paying. This means advertising, coupons and other fantastic deals that you can send to people on their phones and therefore straight into their wallets.
Beacons are something that has had expanding use overseas and we are finding them locally now too, but they are basically other ways of getting advertisings to people locally. It works through Bluetooth, or even a free Wi-Fi, and it just provides information or a discount to people who link or sign up to the Beacon. This means that customers at your Coffs Harbour store, or even roaming past the area will be given more incentive to actually enter the store and make a purchase. It’s a smart promotion 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 better use of Apps such as Snapchat and Periscope for inspiring ways such as advertising. This has been seen in America with national campaigns run by Dunkin’ Donuts and Taco Bell using these apps. It is incredible how individuals can keep reinventing ways to get their company out there, and the same could be done for your local company in Coffs Harbour. Be creative and even look into what other individuals have done, especially when it comes to social media– if you see a little something you like, remember of it and find a way to combine a similar idea into you own strategy.
My concluding pieces of parting suggestions– and these are things that you can possibly do right now, 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 company yet and start a new campaign to reach a new audience. As you reach new people, you will grow your reputation at a local Coffs Harbour level, and also boost your authority and perhaps even become a resource for people. This goes towards your local SEO efforts which are key in 2016. So you will possibly observe that the future actually looks efficient for Local businesses with patterns and technology promoting even greater interaction at a ‘community’ level. This is great for Coffs Harbour businesses, and so I hope that you are as delighted as I am.
