Community Based Marketing

 

IAA Better Business Alliance membership uses the power of community based digital marketing to connect your business to more new customers.

We all know that the Internet is a wonderful and essential tool for marketing your business.  However it can be frustrating when your small business never places near the top in internet searches.  You’re lost in the crowd, invisible and impossible to find in searches.  How can you hope to compete for customers with large companies with seemingly bottomless marketing budgets?  

The IAA Better Business Alliance Digital Marketing Strategy provides more than one way for your business to be found by new customers and gives them good reasons why they should use your business.  Would you like to be page one on internet searches?  

Choose the IAA BBA program which will give you more than one opportunity to make it to page one of a search.  Your IAA BBA Membership also includes membership in an Industry Association, specific for your business type.  If for example you are a Bed and Breakfast you would be enrolled in the IAA Bed and Breakfast Association. 

Don’t forget, belonging to the IAA BBA also includes membership in Accessibility International and Sustainability International.  The customers that you want to connect with care about people and our environment.  Aren’t these the customers that you want to patronize your business?

What happens when a search is done?

When someone does an internet search they use a search engine, either Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo or one of the others.  

Google is the most widely used search and two of Google’s top ranking factors for any website are LINKS and  CONTENT.  

Let’s examine each factor, see how it affects your website, and how IAA Better Business Alliance membership will help your business stand out and be found by new customers eager to use your business.

Search Engines Love Links

Most businesses, including yours fall within the seven leisure categories of Stay, Dining, Play, Events, Exploring, Shopping and Services.  The IAA Better Business Alliance’s Community of websites help your business to connect with the customers who are interested in one or more of these categories.  Let’s look at how this works if your business is a Bed & Breakfast.  

Customers you want to connect to could be visiting your area because of activities, destinations, or services which are close to your Bed & Breakfast.  Your business profile on the BBA website and our community of websites allows you to establish links back to your site from the activities, destinations and services near your business.  By helping potential customers satisfy their “needs” you give search engines many new ways to help customers find your business.

  • STAY     For Example, if your business is a Bed & Breakfast, then the STAY category would be your              PRIMARY category.

  • DINING     If your B & B has an onsite restaurant your business could also belong in the DINING category.

  • PLAY    Your B & B business may be close to activities like whitewater kayaking which would give you a listing in the PLAY category.

  • EVENTS      Your B & B may also host meetings, weddings or elopements so your business would also belong in the Events category.

  • EXPLORING     If your business is close to natural or historic sites, this could mean a listing in the EXPLORING category.  

  • SHOPPING    Proximity to terrific Flea / Farmers Markets or Outlet Malls would include your B & B business in the SHOPPING category.  

  • SERVICES     Providing catering for Events would mean that you should include your B & B business in the SERVICES category.

Search Engines Love Links!

As you can see it could be quite easy to develop a wide variety of LINKS feeding back to your website that would have a high relevance to your site.  Each Link provides an additional path by which a search could find your website.  

An added bonus for you is that search engines love links and rank your website according to the number and relevance of the other websites linking back to your site.  

Membership in the Better Business Alliance and your membership in the associations, alliances, and organization members of the BBA provides you with a unique, innovative and honest method to control and develop links that search engines love when they rank your business website in their searches.
