Instagram launched on October 6, 2010 and since then has grown into one of the top social media platforms out there. This social app is based on the concept of sharing photos. The average user will take a photo, use the filters, post it and sit back waiting for likes and comments from friends. For the average user, this is a great use of the platform. However, for companies, this would seem to be much less useful than platforms like Twitter or Facebook that seem to be MADE for marketing.

When it comes to traffic generation, the building block of any digital initiative, you need to be savvy in how you reach and engage the highest number of qualified visitors to your website. In terms of the search landscape, and for this purpose, specifically Google search results, searchers should be introduced to as many click-through opportunities as possible. The more “real estate” that your business owns on the first page of Google Search results, the better chance you have of gaining a new visitor.

Inbound Marketing

PPC GeolocationIn addition to Search Engine Optimization and Social Media, Pay Per Click or PPC is not only an effective advertising tool but a proven revenue generator. Utilizing this advertising platform has become extremely popular for businesses; however, to maximize revenue, we recommend all local businesses target their ads geographically. Targeting your ads by a location can increase their relevance and increase your click through rate.  The higher your click through rate, the more relevant the Search Engines will view your campaign - which is a GREAT thing.


Analytic software, such as Google Analytics, can provide you with valuable information as to where your customers are located, thus enabling you to target your marketing campaign directly to those users. Utilizing geo-specific keywords and ad copy will filter your audience and make your ads more enticing.
