What is Local Search?
Local Search is a geo-targeted search by a user for a product or service
How Does Local Search Benefit My Advertiser? Consumers use Search Engines the same way they use the newspaper and Yellow Pages. They look for products and services to fill their needs. Whoever (usually a local merchant) offers them solutions or remedies for these needs, as found by the consumer, will get the business. LOCAL BUYER LOCAL SELLER SEARCH ENGINES

“ Why can’t I find my ad?”
Your ad will not appear on every search engine, each time to search for it. However, it will appear with enough frequency to deliver your guaranteed number of clicks.
The more clicks you buy, the more likely your ad is to appear when you search for it. This means that you might have to perform several searches using your keywords to see your advertisement. A vanity search can be used to find your ad, by searching for your business URL on Google, Yahoo, etc.
On Google, you can find your ad by searching for your URL or business name. A vanity search may not produce your ad if your account has reached its performance target or has fulfilled the contracted number of clicks.
Your ad will show up when someone is looking for goods or services in your area, even if the user is in a different city or state. A good example is the person who is planning a vacation and is looking for hotels in a different city, or someone who is looking for a plumber to help her daughter in another city.
The tracking software you are using can only see where the user’s Internet Service Provider is located, not where the actual user is. The best example of this is America Online. All AOL users will show up as being from Virginia because that is where they are located.
“ I purchased clicks from my local area, but my site report shows I am getting clicks from all over the country. Why is that? Why am I getting so many clicks from Virginia? Overcoming Objections
Search engines can only target down to the DMA level based on a user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address. TrafficMAX takes the extra step to use a local geographic term in your ad (e.g. Walnut Creek auto repair). This lets the search engine user know where your service area is located. Thus, the search engine user will only click on your ad when he or she truly is interested in your business.
Overcoming Objections “ I live in Walnut Creek. I don’t do business with anyone outside the immediate Walnut Creek area, yet the package you sold me covers all of Bay Area. Why can I only target ads down to the DMA?
You may be able to buy clicks on search engines for less, but we feel that your time has value as well. TrafficMAX purchases clicks for you on 30+ search engines that capture 95% of the search audience.
WebVisible has professionals who determine the keywords associated with your business that will draw the best results.
TrafficMAX sends you monthly reports and monitors your activity continuously.
“ I already buy clicks from Google at a lower price than TrafficMAX. Why should I do business with you?” Overcoming Objections
“ What can I expect for a conversion rate?”
Conversion rates vary depending on the business you are in and the products and services that you offer. However, you control the biggest piece of the equation – your web site.
Compelling content with simple navigation is more likely to turn shoppers into buyers. Think like your customers and provide the information that you think they’d like to see.
“ I bought your package, but I have only gotten 1 inquiry from all those clicks. How do I know it is worth the investment? What am I doing wrong? How can I track it? How do I monetize it?”
Be truthful about how your website looks and functions. If they get the traffic but people leave your site and take no action, why is that? Is their site poorly designed? Does it have the necessary information? Does it have sample of their work? Testimonials?
A sample ROI calculation is done in your sales collateral.
The search engines do not allow multiple buys to be entered for the same URL.
If the advertiser wants to run their own search engine marketing (SEM) campaign, then the sales representative should not sell this product unless they are willing to cancel their own SEM program.
“ I currently buy clicks from Google and Yahoo. Can I still buy from you? Do I have to cancel my current ads on their search engines?” Overcoming Objections
No. This is a performance based product, which means that you aren’t buying static inventory, you’re buying performance – clicks in this case.
The total number of clicks generated in a given month is determined by the interest of the consumers – the search engine users. Therefore, it is impossible to “corner” the market, as the market is always changing.
“ Can I buy all of the inventory you have and block out my competitors?” Overcoming Objections
No, the left hand side of Google is used for organic search results. These links are based on the relevancy calculation that Google uses. These links are not for sale and cannot be impacted by Search Engine Marketing.
“ If I buy clicks from you, will it help get me to the top on the left hand side of Google?” Overcoming Objections
We do not have a partnership with any web hosting companies. That said, there are a few well-known companies that specialize in building small-business web sites:
Verizon http://my.superpages.com 888.816.6667
Register.com http://www.register.com 888.734.4783
Once the web site is built and is active, the customer can purchase TrafficMAX.
“ My customer wants this product, but does not have a web site. Can I help get him/her one? Overcoming Objections
Clicks in the monthly report are ones you received from TrafficMAX.
The report also contains a running total number of clicks since activation.
“ How can I tell the difference between the organic clicks I receive and the ones you send me?” Overcoming Objections
Sorry, that information cannot be captured. Search Engines do not provide or capture this information.
“ Can I get a list of the people who come to my site? Like an AIN Telephone Number that gives me Name, address, time of day etc.?” Overcoming Objections
A click is a click, it doesn’t matter what search engine it comes from.
How a customer arrives at your website should not be important, as long as customers are finding your web site.
Can I pick what search engines my ads run on? Some of the search engines you offer I have never heard of before.” Overcoming Objections
