How to Target a Local Market And Be Awesome At It #ContentMarketing #Blogging Click To TweetYour business might have a local component to it. That’s why we decided to help you out and show you how you can target a local market: like a boss.

The first thing you’ll want to take care of is the “Keywords” component.

It’s one thing to use a tool that fetches you keywords that people search for on the general google.com, and a whole different animal when you use a tool that seeks keywords only from your home country. Or from the country where you want to open up shop, or ship out products to.

You shouldn’t compete with everybody! On google.com you do, but on local targeted search engines, you have much less competition.

That doesn’t mean it’s a walk in the park.

Here’s what we’ll go over in this article

 

  1. Getting the right keywords for the right Search Engine
  2. Settings you’ll have to cover for your local market
