After completing a design course, Renee set out to build her reputation as an interior decorator in Marietta, Georgia. Having operated for three years in her medium-sized city, she found that the market was just about saturated. With the economy on a downturn, fewer people were redoing their homes and fewer businesses were looking for a design consultant to help them with a revamp. With her own costs rising, Renee looked around for a way to revitalize her business.
She found the answer to her problem by looking outside Marietta. Around twenty five miles north was Atlanta, which was surrounded by several counties giving Renee a market of almost 4.5 million people. Many of the homes were suburban developments where professional couples had moved to build their families. Small and mid-sized businesses were also flourishing in the region.

Your zip code is nothing but a string of numbers, often unnoticed in the corner of your business card or company letterhead. While you might not be paying attention to your zip code, it is very likely that your clients are.

With Google increasingly focusing on the needs of mobile searchers, the utilization of a true commercial address can be critical to the success of local SEO efforts. In every city, there are some zip codes and street addresses that are known as commercial districts. Others are instantly recognizable as residential ones.
Clients who are familiar with you and your products will probably not mind that your business is home-based. But, you also need new clients if your business is going to progress. When given the choice between a home-business and one based in a commercial district, clients who don’t know you will probably go with the latter.
