6 Ways To Promote A Local Business With Google Adwords

Google AdWords is a powerful tool for local businesses, and there are a wide variety of ways that you can use it to promote your company – here are a few top options!

1. Claim Your Google My Business Page

Your Google My Business page is what customers will find when they search for your company on Google – and by “claiming” it, you can add more information like an updated address and phone number, post pictures, manage reviews, and take control of every other aspect of your business listing – which can help with conversions.

2. Try Using “Call Now” Campaigns

For companies like restaurants, contractors, or any company that does most of its business or marketing via phone, this can be a great way to bring in more customers. “Call Now” campaigns display on mobile devices, and allow customers to place a call to your company with the touch of a button – maximizing conversion rates and minimizing cost per click.

3. Location Targeting

When using location targeting, it’s important to optimize the locations where you’re serving your ads with Google. You can choose particular cities and towns, or even ZIP codes where you want your ads to be served to maximize your ROI (Return on investment).

4. Optimize Landing Pages

Your Google AdWords campaign can be great – but if your landing pages aren’t up to snuff, you’ll miss out on conversions. A “landing page” is a page that your customers are directed to after they click an ad – and it’s laser-focused on getting them to convert by doing a particular action.

For a restaurant, for example, a landing page could be a menu that lets customers order instantly. For a home improvement contractor, it would be designed to get customers to enter their information for a free quote, and so on. Follow best practices to optimize your landing pages – and get more clicks!

5. Use Ad Remarketing

Ad remarketing lets you serve up your ads to a person who has already clicked or shown interest in your products, but has not yet converted. They will often see your ads across different websites – which helps maximize brand awareness, and increases the likelihood that they will convert.

6. Try Google Display Ads

You’re probably familiar with Google Search Ads, which appear in search results when customers search for a particular keyword. But Google Display Ads are also a great tool – they appear on third-party websites that partner with Google for advertising – on websites like CNN, Forbes, eBay, YouTube, and more. Consider adding these into your AdWords campaign.
