That’s a very broad, very vague question. Here are a couple of questions that need to be answered by you first:
  • What exactly do you mean by the term “local marketing”?
  • What exactly do you mean by “capture”?

Default Social Media Networks

Make the most out of your social media networks. Connect with local businesses, join local groups, and engage with your followers often. You might even want to consider announcing discounts for locals, etc.

Default Questions is really too vague

Are you looking to get your name or business name out into the local community? The best way is to go networking. Go to the chamber after hour events in your area. Look into weekly networking group like BNI, or something along those lines. I built my business by networking.

Social media is a good way to get your name out there in the digital world too. Optimize your website for SEO and USER EXPERIENCE is crucial. And make sure it is mobile friendly! 70% of Facebook traffic is on mobile devices. If your social media efforts all go to your regular website shrunk down to fit a phone screen, don't even bother with social media. You are absolutely wasting your time, efforts and money!

You can use online local classified. That will help to carry your business message to your targeted audience too.
