The latest research shows that more than 80% of consumers check the web before visiting a physical store or restaurant and 75% of users making a local search on the web visit a location within 24 hours*. This new consumer behaviour is referred to as O2O (Online to Offline).
In this new age of consumers the first contact customers have with your physical store or restaurant is your Google page. Therefore it is essential for any local retail business to present a reliable online presence that builds trust with the customers and encourages them to go O2O. This course will help you with successfully creating and implementing that online presence so you can stay ahead of your competitors.
