I don’t mean to be disrespectful to the great old yellow pages because they’ve done a lot of help to most locally established businesses. But seriously, yellow pages are way too past its prime. With the internet age at our doorsteps now, I guess it’s about time that we embrace other methods in marketing that uses the internet as its primary platform.

The internet has numerous marketing opportunities to offer to local businesses. Believe it or not, the internet has evolved a lot for the past couple of years. In fact today, local businesses could benefit a lot with online marketing because search engines are already incorporating local information in their search results.

These recent upgrades in search engines have led to the rise of local search marketing, it’s a marketing strategy that we could more or less compare to yellow pages. It provides information about the business like telephone numbers, address and even directions. But of course, just like usual search engine results, the data presented is arranged to the most relevant to the least.

Overall, we could say that local online marketing has a lot of potential to help out local business owners in their advertising. The internet is at its prime and with thousands of people using it everyday, it’s not a surprise later on if other marketing tools will be created and that it will become the primary advertising media in the near future.
