Are you a small business owner looking for a Local Marketing Solution and an effective way to enhance your online presence and reach more customers? If so, you’re in the right place. In this comprehensive platform tour, we’ll take you through Simply Be Found, the tool designed with small businesses in mind, to help you get noticed by potential customers. Join us on this journey as we explore the features and benefits that can transform your marketing efforts. 

1. What is Simply Be Found? 

Before we dive into the intricacies of the platform, it’s essential to clarify what Simply Be Found is and what it is not. It’s not just another marketing firm or pay-per-click service that can be expensive and riddled with hidden fees. Instead, Simply Be Found was created explicitly for small businesses. It’s the solution for business owners who want to take control of their online presence without breaking the bank. 

2. The Genesis of Simply Be Found 

The concept behind Simply Be Found began with a conversation between our founder, Rob, and one of his clients, Dean Kaler. This conversation revolved around the need for small businesses to be discoverable in a digital age where traditional advertising methods like Yellow Pages and print ads have become obsolete. Thus, Simply Be Found was born out of the desire to help small businesses thrive in a competitive online landscape. 

3. The Importance of Local Presence 

Simply Be Found focuses on local businesses that serve a specific geographic area, typically within 25 to 50 miles of their location. Why? Because most customers now turn to their mobile devices, voice search, and online platforms to find local services. If your business isn’t optimized for these searches, you risk missing out on potential customers. 

4. The Power of Smart Reviews 

One of the core components of Simply Be Found is the smart review generation tool. In today’s digital world, reviews can make or break a business. This tool allows you to request reviews from your customers through various channels such as text messages and email. It’s a straightforward yet powerful way to build trust and credibility in your local market. 

5. Questions and Answers: Engaging with Customers 

Another feature that search engines love is customer engagement. Our platform offers a Questions and Answers section where you can proactively provide answers to common queries related to your business. This not only helps potential customers but also improves your online visibility. 

6. Simplifying the Ad Process 

With Simply Be Found, creating and scheduling advertisements is a breeze. These advertisements, often referred to as “posts,” can be shared on your Google My Business profile, and soon on other platforms like Facebook and Bing. You can add photos, compelling descriptions, and even call-to-action buttons like “Learn More” or “Sign Up.” It’s a cost-effective way to promote your business and attract new customers. 

7. Keeping Your Information Updated 

The accuracy of your business information across various online platforms is crucial. Simply Be Found allows you to update your business details, including hours of operation, social media links, categories, and attributes. This ensures that potential customers can find the most current information about your business. 

8. The Promise of Integration 

Simply Be Found is continuously working on integrating with more platforms to expand its reach. This means that your business information will be consistently updated across a growing number of online directories, giving you even greater visibility making it your local marketing solution.
