Local Marketing Strategies
Local conversion strategies leverage time and location based search strategies to encourage users to make and plan for engagement. As an example, by showing prospects the inside of a local establishment, not only is the user intrigued but their risk of committing time and resources to travel to that establishment is reduced. Opportunities are therefore presented by in-the-moment campaigns that couple a user's location and locally optimized information to increase conversions. Local marketing strategies for in-the-moment and planned conversions involve proper structuring by Zipstripe, with personnel including a Google+ certified Local BusinessView photographer. Zipstripe local strategies offer:

Showing the Local Flavour
Starting with locally optimized ads and content, user engagement is enhanced through use of social strategies and Google’s locally focused services such as Google Maps and Insideview presence. Use of these local applications as part of relevant search strategies can in turn leverage search and social algorithms in such a way to show relevant but enhanced results that stand out, as the first step in increasing potential conversion volumes.
The Hidden Treasure Map
Often we take the obvious for granted, and in this effectual blindness lies a great opportunity for the local marketer to take advantage of.

This is a huge opportunity for local business, but only one that can properly be taken advantage of with Google certified Maps|Insideview and Adwords local marketing experts.
