Thus, for consumers, searching is not just about finding a product or service anymore. It is about finding a specific thing within the area ("nearby") at a certain time.
And finally the statistics that demonstrate the correlation of researching online and buying offline are as follows: 76%
of people who search on their mobile for something nearby (local stores or services) visit a place found in the search within a day, and 28% of those searches result in a purchase.

If you want customers to find your business locations, not your competitors, use the power of a global trend: make your listings more "visible"
by responding to thousands of user requests. Tools and opportunities of listing management service make local marketing simple, and digital presence — efficient.
