Local Online Promotion Trumps Print and Traditional Advertising in Metro Detroit
July 16, 2014 ) Detroit, Michigan – Up until recently there was no way to get really accurate online web traffic. Most service providers would sell web traffic based on regions. So this meant if a business was in Wixom, Michigan the actual online web traffic might be coming in from far off Grand Rapids or even Toledo, Ohio. In the age of the Internet a month or two could cripple a business. This was how a lot of businesses ran the course and there was a lot of waiting. In this economy waiting could create a lot of economic havoc and even force some businesses to shut its doors for good. That is exactly what happened to a lot of businesses in 2013 and at the beginning of 2014.
A smart use of social media, SEO, (search engine optimization) and good sales offers changed the game for local business promotion. Google’s changing algorithm has really changed the game for a lot of local business. Part of the reason is because of a new social media platform called Google+. This is a powerful tool when used properly and can connect a business to the front pages of Google in just a couple of days. When this is used in conjunction with competing social media platform Facebook the end results are pretty astounding. When this is enhanced with a micro blogging system like Twitter the over all effect becomes very sustainable.
That is the gamble that one online marketing company has taken with Hot Metro Finds. This news site offers local community news as well as online marketing for local companies. This comes at a time when many newspapers have folded and bookstores like Borders and Barnes and Nobles have forever shut locations down. With limited magazine distribution and the collapse of Real Detroit Entertainment Weekly the options so seem a bit more limited than usual. At this time the media collapse is somewhat unprecedented. What sites like Stylejab.com and Hotmetrofinds.com offer is hope for Detroit. Hope for Michigan business and hope for a new proactive stable local business economy.
The businesses are offered the, “Motor City Challenge” and that is that Hot Metro Finds will rank any keyword and in any city for just $25 in 24 hours or less or double the money back. This is a fierce offer that almost no online marketing company will dare to make. The challenge here is that it will shake up the conventions of what local business promotion can actually be. It will open up the Metro Detroit business owner to what is possible and keep the players in the game. This is especially essential for local retail. The promotion has kicked off on July 4th and will be running through Labor Day 2014.
