Achieve Maximum Visibility For Your Small Business on Search Engine

Social (Spatial) distancing, Travel restrictions, Self-isolation and lockdown are the new normal caused by the covid-19 pandemic. This new normal has caused disruption in consumer behaviour, spending power and habit, which has drastically altered how and where consumers choose to spend their hard-earned cash. 

The implications of this New-Normal is that consumers will begin to search for products/services around them due to safety issues. “Near me” searches will be on the increase and will gain traction as consumers begin to accept this new reality.

Products and Services that are deemed essential e.g Food and Grocery, Pharmaceuticals, Nose Masks retail shops e.t.c will have to optimize their website in order to increase traffic, leads and brand awareness from local search. Website content must include “near me” keywords such as “food near me”, “nose mask in Ikeja” “Hand Sanitizer in PortHarcourt” "digital marketing agency in Ikeja" "Java Training Academy in Lagos" in order to be optimised for local search rankings. 

As the world continues to find solutions to a pandemic that brought to halt movement across cities, regions, countries and continents, Consumers will be forced to use services and products within their vicinity. For example, people working from home are likely to order food from local restaurants who can deliver it to their homes or that allow for a drive-thru.
