Optimise Your Business In Google Local (Places) for under $6
It’s no secret that the old ways of advertising like local newspapers and directory books are dying a slow death becoming less effective for small business, especially when 82% of all local business searches are done in Google. We have been able to see the success of many of our customers who have seen real results and real business coming through the door within their first 4 weeks!
So is online marketing the answer? Yes, but not all online marketing is the same.
There’s 2 forms of online marketing:
- Advertising that helps grow traffic to your website
- Advertising that get’s your phone ringing
Let’s talk about no.1
, this form of advertising is great if you have a website and the website is designed to turn traffic into calls or sales online and this is what we call a high converting website. Unfortunately, most websites are a tangled web and are either too simple with no information, no direction or too complex causing potential customers to leave before taking any action.
type of advertising is powerful yet hard to find, advertising that simply gets you the right kind of customers picking up their phones and calling you. This is where Google Local also known as Google Places
comes in, the service is dedicated to helping you convert business interest in your local area into real business dollars.
How does it do this?
Let’s me you an example, Mr & Mr. Smith are watching a home renovation show on the weekend and decide that it’s time to give their house a fresh coat of paint, they jump online and search Google or they can’t be bothered getting up at all and do a quick search on their iPhone using Google to search for a “Painter” in “their local area” Google pops up a map (as seen below) and next to the map are the top 7 painters
in that local area. The easy part is that next to each of the painters is their business name, website and their contact number and you’re one click away from calling the painter and getting a quick quote. Easy!
So how do you get your business in the TOP 7 in Google Places?
