If you’ve ever wondered why your online traffic has dried up and it’s more difficult to reach online shoppers…
It’s because statistics show more than 80% of shoppers now use a mobile device (cell phone). As a result, Google can use mobile technologies to track online activity in real time.
That means, Google can track each shopper’s location and base it’s search results on the searchers current GPS GEO location and not on SEO link strategies or popularity.
Google now shows the closest businesses to the searcher not the best.
The new search buzz word is “near me“…
Real time tracking allowed Google to discard the local “radius of service” option. Searches are now based on GPS location. As a consequence, businesses are now shown in relation to a shopper’s real time GEO location (as if all businesses were pizza shops).
Everything businesses used to depend on to get customers has changed. SEO tactics and tricks to get your business ranked in Google are becoming less and less effective. Google now bases it’s ranking and search results on GPS/GEO location, not on how popular a business/website is.
How many people visit, how long they stay, if they watch a video, if they click a link, if they make a phone call or if they make a purchase — are all secondary factors.
Google is first and for-most a search engine (the most popular search platform in the world). It’s primary function and loyalty is to the millions of people who depend on and trust it to deliver search results. Google’s strength is in the fact that it sees and measures everything on the Internet. Google rewards or punishes websites based on how searchers react to the site (if they pleased or not).
Bloated and slow loading vanity websites are not popular with mobile devices (“on the go” shoppers want service not entertainment).
According to Google’s massive statistics, to land a new client or customer, it takes an average of 10 website clicks before you get an appointment. That means, with a high conversion web site, an $8.00 pay per click AdWord campaign costs you $80 for each new client/customer/patient (and a poor web site could double those costs).
If a local business is content with walk-in & referral traffic, they can keep doing what they’re doing now. However, if a local business wants to grow and become prosperous… they basically have two options… and both of them require spending some money.
From a business owners perspective, the quickest and easiest method to get new clients, is to find a “pay per lead” service who can supply you real live customers with a good ROI (return on investment) strategy. They do what they do best (get leads) and you do what you do best (run your business).
BTW: many businesses already advertise bonuses, coupons, or discounts — but the trick is getting a customer to see your offer! –> get them to you website.

We’ve developed a new cloud based technology system that improves your bottom line. Drastically reducing your cost per live call by identifying and contacting potential customers early in their search process.
Our system is super simple. We Handel Everything:
The only thing you need to do is pick up the phone and talk to the customer
Our nominal fee is $25.00 per client call. You decide what your budget should be. How many calls you want and how often — (1 or 2 calls a day, 25 or 50 calls a month etc.) *minimum 10 calls per month
There are a lot of horror stories about how the “money hungry” big national lead gen companies rip-off local businesses. However, like small businesses everywhere, customer satisfaction is our top priority. We know performance (not a contract), is the only thing that keeps us in business.
HomeAdvisor, Angie’s List, Yelp, Thumbnail or AdWords, wait passively for callers and use their corporate strength to bully local businesses.
We, on the other hand, use “in the cloud” mobile friendly technologies to actively contact and pre-qualify people looking for your service. Then we send those people directly to you (before your competitors or anyone else get a chance to connect with them).
Oh, and by the way, we are a lot more effective and cheaper that using Adwords
