Google My Business

Google my business or GMB is one of the many ways you can now be found on Google.

Its all part of the Local SEO that we talk about.

So Why is it Important?

Did you realise that more and more people allow location to be set in their smartphones/tablets and with the increased usage of that, when they type in a service it knows where they are and the results are according to that.

So if you don’t have all the details listed correctly or even claim it, (and there is the possibility that someone else might) aren’t you shooting yourself in the foot?

You have lots of potential FREE, yes once its set up, FREE traffic heading your way for your service.  No one has persuaded them with copy or you have paid for expensive adverts – once its set up, its there.

Of course, you need to keep any eye on it, as people can leave reviews, and no one wants a bad one!

How do I Set GMB Up?

Well you can try and do it yourself and spend some time doing it, or you can get in touch and we can optimise and list it all for you, and then after a one off payment to us, simply sit back and watch your business grow.

How do I Maintain My Google My Business Listing?

Again, you have three options:

  1. Trial and error
  2. Pay us a retainer
  3. Do some training with us and then know how to keep on top of it.

So What Next?

Well if you want to set it up and then keep it listed, then option 2 and 3 above make sense.
