Hosted by Mishka Balsom, CEO of the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce (GNCC), the webinar featured industry expert Maggie McTavish, Founder and CEO of Mango Media. The webinar provided many valuable tactics on local search optimization, keyword targeting, Google Business Profile management, online review strategies, and standing out in the digital landscape.


Local Search Optimization

With the rise of "near me" searches on search engines, local search optimization has become increasingly essential for businesses. Optimizing your web pages for local search involves tailoring your SEO strategies to increase visibility in search engine results within a specific geographic area. McTavish delved into various strategies businesses can employ, underscoring the importance of a strong local presence in major search engines' search results.

Keyword Targeting and Google Business Profile Management

Effective keyword research and Google Business Profile management were critical topics covered in the webinar. Keyword targeting involves optimizing your website and content with specific keywords that potential customers might use in a Google search when looking for your products or services. McTavish shared tips on identifying and integrating these keywords into your SEO optimization strategy.

On the other hand, a well-managed Google Business Profile provides relevant information about your business to users conducting local searches. As a result, it helps improve your business's visibility and credibility, influencing search engines to rank higher.  

Online Review Tactics

Online reviews significantly influence consumers' purchasing decisions and play a vital role in SEO. Search engines consider the quality and quantity of reviews when determining search engine rankings. The webinar explored various online review tactics, including how to encourage happy customers to leave reviews and how to respond to negative reviews to manage your online reputation effectively.

Standing Out in the Digital Landscape

The digital landscape is increasingly competitive, making it crucial for businesses to differentiate themselves. In the webinar, McTavish discussed several strategies to help your business stand out. From creating unique, high-quality content to ensuring a seamless user experience on your website, these strategies aim to distinguish your business from the competition and engage your target audience effectively.
