Local SEO For Dispensary Marketing

In order to remain competitive today, every local business, including medical marijuana dispensaries and recreational cannabis retail stores, must show up in local search results and preferably in the Google Local Map Pack.

You past customers, potential new customers, and curious cannabis consumers are actively searching online, right now, for a place to buy weed near them. They are asking Google to find a “dispensary in [city name]”, or “where to buy CBD oil in [city name]”.

Do you want your dispensary to show up on page 1 for these types of local search results? Even better, have your cannabis retail store featured in the Google local map, with directions to your dispensary and your phone number?

If so, you need a comprehensive local SEO strategy as part of your dispensary marketing plan.

Local SEO Drives Qualified People To Your Dispensary

The main purpose of implementing a local SEO strategy for dispensary marketing is so your retail store can show up in the right place, at the right time, and on the right device. You want to be found in a Google search when a potential customer is looking for a place to buy CBD products, marijuana edibles, or straight up dried flower.
