ps. If you are really keen to gather more business from your local area, don’t forget online too:
– Include your location prominently on your website homepage.
– Include your location in the footer or header so that if someone lands on another page first for example a blog or event page, they can see the location too.
– Improve your local SEO – You can kick this off yourself very easily by registering your business on Google: https://www.google.co.uk/business/ and also including your city and state/region in title tag and meta tag of your website homepage.
