When your prospects search for your Michigan small business, can they find you?
Many of them no longer use the phone book to find you. Instead, many of them go to Google to look for businesses like yours.
Let’s create a real-world scenario.
Let’s say that you are looking for a heating & cooling contractor in Grand Rapids to fix your furnace. Your furnace just went out. You are in a panic. So….you rush over to your computer, type in “Grand Rapids, Michigan furnace repair”, check out the top 3 websites in the search results, compare prices, look for a phone #, check the reviews, and then call the HVAC contractor and tell them that you want to schedule a service call.
Chances are….you didn’t even look past the first 3-4 results in the search engines.
So….does your website appear on the first page of Google when prospects are searching for businesses like yours in your local area?
Let’s look at the cost of your business NOT being on the first page of the search results for your local area.

#1 position – 42% of the clicks
#2 position – 12% of clicks
#3 position – 8% of clicks
