Local Business Advertising The Listings
WHAT IS LOCAL SEO?
Local SEO Listings (Google My Business (GMB), Bing local, and Yahoo! local listings) show up in the map section of search results. It is situated below Paid Search Ads, and above the organic SEO listings. These business listings highlight your business name, address, phone number, user reviews, and website to prospects and customers.
Similar to SEO results, Google My Business listings must be earned, and cannot you cannot purchase a top placement.
So how do we help your business rank at the top of local search results? It’s a combination of factors that includes consistent citations of the business name, address, phone number and website in local business directories. Your ability to rank in local search results also depends on reviews, and items that enrich your listing such as photos and virtual tours through Google 360 view.
Building out a strong NAP listing (name, address, phone number) in business directories is a tedious process. It’s a manual process that is extremely time consuming. However, at The Influence Agency we have access to unique tools that set the NAP profile of any business at scale, as well as controlling outside reviews and maintaining your business’ reputation online.

From a search perspective, have a strong online local listings will generate website visits, phone leads, and foot traffic.
With regards to reputation management, perception is reality. If your listing has captivating reviews and great reviews from happy customers, people will be impressed. If you have bad reviews and no pictures, people will look for other options.
Local Business Advertising represents a great opportunity to control your brand and message at the top of organic search results.

The Influence Agency is by far one of the best agencies I've worked with in Toronto. They provide so much value to each and every one of their clients, and I've had the pleasure of working with them on many different campaigns. As an artist, they have also provided me with valuable insight regarding the growth of my personal brand. Not only are they professional, but very personable. They are a delight to work with, and I would recommend them to anyone interested in growing their brand or business in an meaningful and creative way.
