BEST PRACTICE: One of the best ways to be found on the Internet to market your business is with Google My Business to attract new customers that can be repeat profitable customers. Until you are Top of Mind in marketing this helps you become Top of Search in Marketing for free.
Prior to Google my Business, you had to consistently work to be found near the top of page one on search. By being listed on Google My Business and learning how to move up in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) tools, you are near the top of page one in search. Plus, it is free.
According to Google My Business:
- Makes it easy for your business to be in one, easy-to-use location.
- Puts your business info on Search, Maps and Google+ so that customers can find you, no matter what device they’re using.
- Gives customers the right info at the right time, whether that be driving directions to your business in Maps, hours of operations in Search or a phone number they can click to call you on mobile phones.
- Helps build a loyal fan base. Customers can show their appreciation with ratings and reviews, use the +1 button to endorse your content, and re-share your Google+ posts across the web.
This seminar is good for creating your Google My Business site and for those that “already” have Google My Business that want to move up in Google.
