Before anything else, let’s quickly go over why local search such a great opportunity for your business!
The fact is, if you have a small business that is struggling to get more customers in your local city and you don’t have a huge marketing budget or endless hours to learn Internet marketing, local search could be just the solution you’ve been looking for. Here’s why:
1) It ranks higher. Your local search listing will generally rank above the traditional organic search results.
2) It’s faster. It can take many months of hard work to get your website ranked on the first page of the search engines with organic search engine optimization. If you follow our system, your local search efforts should start to show results in just 5 days.
3)It’s easier. Traditional organic search engine optimization requires a lot of specialized knowledge and many hours of work to optimize your website and generate the right links to your website. Anyone with access to a computer and an internet connection can do local search.
4)It’s Free! Unlike Pay-Per-Click advertising with Google Adwords or paying a Search Engine Optimization company hundreds or even thousands of dollars every month, local search is free as long as you know how to take full advantage of it.

In a nutshell, 5 Day Local Search is a 5 Day training program that helps you optimize a combination of online directories, and review websites that work together to help your business get found when people search for your type of business in your local community.

Most People think that they have to be a computer wiz with special technical skills to market their local business online. This is simply not true with 5 Day Local Search!

Doing it yourself will save you a ton of money and allow you to maintain control. It has been proven time and time again that businesses who do it themselves consistently outrank businesses who hire out. Why? Because no one cares about your business as much as you do.
Let’s quickly get an overview of exactly what we are going to accomplish here. Basically, marketing in the online world is the same as marketing in the offline world. It’s a popularity contest.
