I know it is hard to acquire a quality guest post on high quality website, but once you will get it helps you a lot.
Local Blog commenting: We recently seen that blog commenting is still alive, but in my point it was never dead. You can do blog commenting for your business, but remember that spam blog commenting will hit your business so only quality blog commenting on high quality local blogs will be good.
Local Mentions: Try to get mentions in your local news websites or community websites, for this you have to do something which is different from others.
You can easily do this by doing PR, first you have to find a Journalist who covers lots of news related to your business niche then try to connect with him through telephone or it is good to have a cup of coffee with him. This kind of relationship building really helps you.
Classified Ads Submission: This technique also helps you, because most of them time people do classified submissions only for their local people. Create exciting offers and submit them on local Ads submission websites, this will help in your business and in Google rankings.
Remember one this always include your high quality product image with Ad description, because these images will convince the customers to contact you for business.
Guys these 5 techniques will help you and your business, but you have to perform each and every link building in a right way. Beside these techniques remember your customer satisfaction is more important than these, if your customers are happy then you will dominate your market.
