Google My Business

Every day, millions of people search on Google for businesses. Having a Google My Business listing is crucial for your existence on the web, but many companies struggle to figure out how to control and manage their profile. We can not only help build your page, but make your Google My Business Profile stand out by keeping it fresh with content.

What is Google My Business?

When searching for a local business you want to be seen prominently by your customers as well as Google.

Do you have a physical shop or branches? 95% of customers read online reviews for local businesses in 2018, with 12 percent of those looking for a local business online every day. This gives your business enormous potential to be seen, if you’re in the right spot.

Google is where customers go to discover your business, find out what you do, when you’re open, and how to get in touch. If you don’t have a prominent local Google listing, it’s like you simply don’t exist!

Our Google Optimiser service will get your local listing setup to not just being online, but really jumping off the page.

How a Local Search Works

Discovery Search

The majority of customers looking for your business will start a search using a mobile and will start with category and area. e.g “co worker spaces shoreditch.” The Google map is the first thing that comes up with the top 3 local businesses. You’re at a significant disadvantage if you don’t appear in the top 3 positions.

If you are in the top 3, great, you’ll get a lot of views, but you still need to convert interest into action with great content! If you’re not,  users will need to click more places to see the entire list of businesses in the area.

Map Results

Under ‘more places’ all the business within a specific category & area will appear. The further down you have to scroll the less likely it is that you’ll get clicked. Clicks lead to enquiries!

The volume of businesses in the list highlights the competitiveness of your industry. Make sure when someone clicks you shout about why they need to shop with you.

What You Get

  • A Google listing banner to tell the world why they need to shop with you.
  • 1 promotional post per month with keyword optimisation.
  • Photo management so you look amazing all the time, and exclusive discounts on Google Trusted Photography – Up to 3 images uploaded per month.
  • Monthly keyword optimisation on review responses.
  • Monitor and review all Google updates and suggestions from members of the public.
  • Monthly optimisation for additional local key term searches.
  • Increased authority through link building.
  • Fresh blog content for Google & users.
  • Monthly optimisation for additional local key term searches.

Your Listing

This is your shop window. It’s the most viewed part of your online world. The more engaging the information and imagery, the more reasons you’ll give your potential clients to make an enquiry with you.

A standard Google listing with just the basic business information is not good enough in today’s online world to drive more enquiries. If you’ve not upgraded your business listing with Google’s new features you’re missing out.
