How did Smart Local start?

Originally we were a pure SEO business. Our aim was to make businesses of any size visible to their target audience. We were pretty good at it too, but we saw one group who were a little let down by traditional SEO services – local independent businesses.

We started talking to the digitally-minded among this group and discovered that they needed something different from traditional SEO. They needed to promote themselves locally and tap into the nearby community for prospective customers – for a chiropractor in Chester, getting found by searchers in New York wasn’t particularly useful for them!

So we thought “let’s plug that gap!”. We honed our existing expertise and chose to specialise in digital marketing techniques for businesses with a local audience. And do you know what? We love it!

It’s great to work directly with independent companies and really see the impact of our work. Another bonus is that with smaller businesses, you can often see results really quickly!

Our mission:

We like to think of ourselves as the champions of independent local businesses.

We provide them with smarter and more effective digital marketing strategies, tailor made to their requirements. Because we understand the budget limitations of smaller businesses, we streamline processes and advise on which areas of your digital marketing strategy are worthy of investment.

Basically, with us, you get more bang for your buck!

No matter what your business is or where you are or even if you’re a multi-location outfit, we make sure you are visible to the local market you’re trying to attract. No matter if you have one location or more than twenty, we can give your local online presence a massive boost by using the latest local digital marketing techniques.
