Hello and welcome to Keeping It Local. I’m Cathy and I run Keeping It Local. I’ve created this online business directory to give small businesses across North Wales a search engine friendly platform to list on.
An affordable way to advertise online and to promote your business, Keeping It Local helps your customers to find, buy and use your products and services. Listings are supported by social media updates. Combined, they direct customers to use local services and to shop locally.
Covid-19 and multiple lockdowns have turbo-charged people’s reliance on going online to find things. Undoubtedly, this dynamic is here to stay.
Any business should now be online
It is vital that your business has an online presence. When customers can’t find your business when they search online, they go elsewhere.
- If your business doesn’t list when someone searches on, for example Google, then they won’t find you.
- If you run your local business just through social media, this won’t help you to list well on search engines.
- Furthermore, you may not know that the algorithms behind platforms such as Facebook and Instagram control who sees your messages. This means that you reach only a limited audience.
Using local businesses generates positive benefits to our regional economy and local communities. Covid-19 has fundamentally changed the way we are living and being able to shop locally has for many, become a lifeline.
Easy to join and affordable, Keeping It Local will help your business list on key search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo and Duck Duck Go. When you list your business with Keeping it Local, you’ll get great value for money and plenty of free quality advice. No matter how small your business is, you’ll see great results.
Keeping It Local is run by ItsLello, my little digital marketing and copywriting business based in Llanfairfechan. I love doing good business well and has launched Keeping It Local to support fellow North Wales businesses.
