Here are 5 fairly compelling, research-based reasons to invest in and raise the online profile of your business locally:


1. 74% of respondents to a survey by WebVisible and Neilson (W&N) used search engines to find local business information versus 65% who turned to Yellow Pages, 50% who used Internet Yellow Pages and 44% who used traditional newspapers.


2. 86% surveyed said that they have used the Internet to find a local business, a rise from the 70% figure reported the year before (W&N)


3. 80% reported researching a product or service online, then making that purchase offline from a local business (W&N)


4. According to Yahoo, online advertising drives £6 offline (in stores) for every £1 spent online.


5. Search engine marketing has a greater impact on in-store sales lift than display advertising - 3 times greater, in fact (Yahoo)
