How to drive more traffic to your store ?

The Covid-19 crisis disrupted the way we consume. One might think that e-commerce has prevailed over convenience stores. But that is not true. Digital tools are great to attract even more customers to a store.

How to reach a person on the internet and attract them to your shop ?

Nowadays, 46% of searches on Google are made to find a local company.

Let's take an example: it's 4 p.m. on a Saturday and tonight you are invited to a friend's house for a meal. You are looking for a bouquet of flowers to offer to your guests.

So, you go to Google, and you search for "florist".
Among the first hits, Google will show you the florists that are closest to your home.

If you do a search for "Florist" from your computer (or your phone), it is quite normal that you will get different results from ours. They will be tailored to your geographical location.

Now that you have the list of the nearest florists, you can consult the opening hours, contact details, but also the reviews left by Internet visitors. All you have to do is choose your florist and go to the store to make your purchase.

This is called Local Search Engine Optimization.

Obviously, you can apply this example to your business (restaurant, bakery, chocolate maker, jeweler, lawyer, clothing store, ...).

We saw through this example that the local SEO is realized thanks to the geographical position of the Internet user who carries out the search. It also works if you indicate a city in the search.
For instance, if you are organizing a stay in Annecy, you will probably have to search for "restaurant Annecy" or "hotel Annecy". The principle remains the same.
