Google My Business
Google My Business is Google’s page that shows up with a map when you search for yourself on Google Web or Maps. The page needs to be claimed by your business and updated with pictures and content.
Google My Business is one of your most important accounts online. With it, you manage your most important web page on the internet if you have a local business address, directing prospects searching on their computer, mobile device or tablet, to you. It works for you 24/7. You link to your website from the maps listing, further enhancing your exposure in your profession.
It’s where you add special hours to your google search result, and notify your prospects when hours are unusual such as Labor Day or Memorial Day.
The same steps need to be taken at Bing and Yahoo, but you’ll know how to do them yourself in a short time.
This is your most powerful marketing tool on the internet, and if done correctly in conjunction with email follow up with your clients, you will dominate your niche and spend little or no money on advertising.
What you will spend is a little of your valuable time connecting and communicating with the mass of people in your market, gaining priceless insight as to what they’re thinking.
