Helping more Phoenix residents find your business at the moment they’re looking for what you offer

the best advertising is relevant advertising
The Best Advertising is Relevant Advertising
  • Your customers are looking for you online. In fact, more people now use the Internet to locate products and services available locally than any other resource.
    • As a result, traditional media usage (e.g. Yellow Pages and newspapers) is on the decline.
  • Most consumers don’t want advertising until they need advertising. They need advertising when they are close to making a buying decision.
    • The main problem with traditional advertising is that the mating of these types of neededads with buy-ready consumers is typically coincidental, not targeted. 
    • Experts estimate that $50 billion of U.S. ad spending is “wasted” every year.
  • Today's results-oriented advertising is about connecting with the consumer at the exact moment they need your service.
  • 92% of local searches convert (to sales) later offline.
  • Recent studies show that local businesses can see 10 times better ROI from local search.

Mark-Taylor Marketing Gives Advertisers More Exposure

Mark-Taylor is continually promoting the local directory through various methods, including company-wide efforts and online marketing campaigns to give our advertisers more value.

  • Natural (Non-Paid) Search Listings:’s natural search rankings are rising dramatically at Google, Yahoo! and MSN due to the relevant local content supplied by the search engine. Now, the Mark-Taylor site and its search results pages can be located through the major search engines for various business-type searches. Want to be found through the major search engines as well? This is a very inexpensive way to do that. For instance, “phoenix day spas” yields highly-ranked results that lead to the search results and Monthly Winner’s page. Many of those advertisers were difficult to find in the major search engines until they began advertising with us.
  • Paid Search Marketing: Mark-Taylor is running a campaign with Google AdWords and other search engines to promote its website. Local Search Box Giveaways: We are in the process of expanding the search engine’s reach by placing the search box on other local and charity sites. When your listing is in Mark-Taylor, you'll also be able to be found at other sites!
  • Deployment on Mark-Taylor Realty: Our sister site is being redesigned and will also include the local search engine.
  • Resident Newsletter: Monthly placement in the resident newsletter sent to over 12,000 residents via email and mail.
  • Sales integration: All sales staff have now been trained to promote the local directory to prospective residents, existing residents (they are pointed to the engine to find information) and solicitors (encouraged to advertise in the engine).
  • Promotional materials: Each of our 24 leasing offices now showcase displays that promote the search engine. Additionally, every resident in each of our properties received a door hanger at their apartment announcing the search engine and explaining the value, where to find it, how to use it, etc. We continue promote the search engine to residents in various ways.
  • Email marketing: Mark-Taylor is currently developing an email marketing campaign, scheduled to launch in Q2 2006.
  • Monthly Winner’s Give-Away: Since August 2005, we have awarded prizes to Monthly Winner’s entrants. As more residents and non-residents hear about the search engine and the “Monthly Winners,” a buzz is being created.
  • 1-click away from the search engine: Links to the search engine are now on all the Apartment pages and will soon be linked from on the home page. Search engine usage will see further increases when that takes place. Be there when Phoenix residents search for what you offer!
