What is needed to do Search Engine Optimization for a dispensary?

A typical all-inclusive plan for internet marketing a dispensary locally would look like:

  • Start by getting information on competitors and research their online presences
  • Identify keywords that the business would like to appear in search under and decide on how many optimized pages to add to the site to accomplish these rankings.
  • Build an SEO friendly website for the dispensary and optimize it for the best possible search visibility
  • Setting up Google My Business for the location to get the chance to rank in the map pack for local searches in the area
  • Add citations for the GMB and add links to build the authority of the website.
  • Work with the client to help them get reviews
  • Set up Social Media for the business
  • Add informational blog post to build the authority of the website and show the expertise of the dispensary in the industry.

This is a very basic outline of what goes into a simple campaign designed to get you to rank locally. There are too many factors into what we do to optimize and get your local rankings to list here. Since currently a marijuana dispensary cannot ship product or cross state lines the only thing that is of real benefit is to dominate locally! Where CBD Shops and smoke shops can work on both local as well as national organic rankings in search. The good news is local marijuana dispensary seo is less costly then national marketing campaigns since you are only competing with your local competition versus the entire country! However, in dense areas of competition it’s a dog eat dog world and the competition can be stiff! No worries though with a seo agency like us on your side we can get you in front of clients looking for dispensaries in their area.

Doing National & Local SEO For CBD Shops & Smoke Shops

Seo & Marketing For CBD Shops / Smoke Shops

Now if you’re a cbd shop or a smoke shop owner then you have a choice in either keeping it local or reaching out to the entire nation to sell your products! We can set you up as well as optimize an e-commerce site as well as just one that gets you inquiries or helps people find your location.

If you choose to keep it local, then you will need a local seo package to get you in front of clients looking for a cbd or smoke shop in the area. This can be achieved by optimizing your Google My Business Listing as well as your website. If you do not have a website, we can build you an SEO friendly website as part of your package or you can choose not to have one and we can build you a simple site right in your GMB listing!

If you’re only interested in local visibility then the basic plan will look much like what we showed you for dispensary SEO but if you want to also have an e-commerce presence and sell online then you will need to consider adding more to the equation. The formula is much the same, but you will also need to add the following.

  • Extensive research of the competition to formulate a plan that will get you the rankings you want.
  • A link earning campaign to get you more links with authority to help boost the trust of your site.
  • Content on a regular basis
  • Of course, also an E-commerce platform. We recommend WooCommerce and WordPress for most sites.
  • Some sort of basic social media
  • Your store will need to have product added to it
  • You will need a merchant account and a gateway to hook into the site.

When it comes to dispensary marketing using organic rankings there are really 3 ways to go.

  • Keep it local and mainly optimize your Google My Business listing to rank on maps and in what is called the 3 pack
  • Still keep it local but not only optimize your GMB (Google My Business) listing but also optimize your web site for the local area therefore helping to extend your visibility beyond the proximity of your store and into other areas of your city.
  • The last is a combination of the two to get as much visibility online as possible which is what we recommend. It is not always feasible for starting dispensaries in which case optimizing your GMB and setting up an internet site for the location and doing some foundational work is the most affordable way to get started with marketing your CBD shop or smoke shop!
