While every business owner agrees that excellent online visibility drives customer traffic, Restaurant owners in particular know that online visibility makes the difference between business success or failure. Reds Alehouse in North Liberty, IA joined OPTIMA™ nearly 5 years ago to solve their visibility problem and make sure that customers found them instead of their competition. Our expert Account Managers have assisted thousands of restaurants in improving their online visibility. We know that deciding on a restaurant is one of the quickest online transactions performed by mobile customers, fueled by an easy to click phone number, click through driving directions, and the number of reviews and star rating.
To tackle Reds Alehouse’s mediocre online visibility at the start of the program, the OPTIMA™ verification team focused on updating their information to highlight the restaurant’s specialty microbrews, classic setting, and delicious food. We combined this richer profile data with attractive original imagery to create a compelling and consistent presence across major search engines.
