You’re a local business owner and you want your business to be found on Google, of course, you do, that’s where hundreds of searches for the services you provide are being made every single month and you want a piece of it, Google has a special home for showcasing its ‘best’ local service providers. It’s in there own little box and any service can rank in there from Architects to Zoo Veterinarians. You can immediately be placed from number 1, down to the depths of Google, never to be seen. Its a complete lottery – Unless, you can meet all the criteria that Google likes to see you follow, which of course you have time for as your only running your business! 🙂
How Its done
Firstly do you know what Google my business listing is? If yes click here. If no, take my hand and lets press on.
If you have ever done a search on the google search engine for a service, perhaps landscape gardener in Milton Keynes then it will bring up (firstly some shameful google ads) then a map pack. how this is presented is a box with 3 or 4 companies within, then a section at the very bottom saying more places (which is the abyss and very infrequently is pressed. Our job is to get your company in the top 3 places.
Firstly we must Claim your listing, which is a step that takes around 10 minutes to do, it will just need you to fill in some company details, it won’t send you to sleep but make a coffee anyway.
After you have answered all the questions the last thing is to wait for a postcard, this is sent directly from John Google himself, he sits in his office all day printing these things out and licking the stamps, He puts for numbers on the card, which you must input back onto your gmb page, you have four days to do this or the postcard self destructs.
Pictures and Videos are so important these days, they say a picture says a thousand words, I know which one your customers would rather do, So if you have a Facebook page or photos on your phone, its essential to upload the to the gmb. Now, this is something you can do, but if you want to fully optimize them we can add geo-locations alt text and descriptions and guess what, this helps with the ranking!
Citations are mentions of your business all over the internet, this is more likely going to be in a directory, eg yell, Thompson local etc… but we push that out much further, finding the most relevant directories (there are hundreds) to your service sector and optimising each listing for your targeted keywords
Map markers are created (hundreds in total) with driving directions from all over your targeted town or city sending signals back to google that customers are trying to get to you.
People love you, they love what you do but they have never told you or left you a review online, but you need these reviews, we make sure you get them, but not just that we manage them in a way that affects your rankings, Google likes to know your loved too!
You can actually use your google my business listing in a variety of ways, Use it the very first thing potential clients see. You can post promotions, announcements, reviews, in fact anything you think that will give you the edge over your competitors.
Once we have implemented the above then we should be sitting somewhere in the top 3. The amount of work required to get there depends on competition within your sector, and how much work they have done to get the top spot,
This is taken from a case study of our client X Graphics, who are a window tinting and vehicle signage company in Milton Keynes. You can See From the Quarter over the winter, not typically great for window tinting has yielded fantastic results purely from the GMB optimization programme.
