Google MY business Optimization & Management
Help Local Consumers Find your Locations
Retail is far from dead, but in order to make sure you are not part of the record number of store closings you need to adapt, you need to talk to prospective consumers at the right time and with the right message. For many categories local search is critical to success, this is particularly true to service based businesses (like plumbers, HVAC, cleaners, etc) , those with a high average-order-value, those where you are rarely in-market, or those that are situationally urgent (like windshield replacement, cell phone repair, and fire/water home restoration). Like with most prospects, it all begins with a search online, for businesses that meet the criteria above local businesses flourish, but for you to take advantage of this you need to be where your consumers are looking for you, and that means above the fold (top 3) on Google My Business, aka Google Maps. Many of these categories have low brand affinity, and due to the consumer journey and infrequency of purchase, channels like paid social convert very poorly, PPC can work well, but it’s a constant pay to play model, the second you stop paying your prospect pipeline dries up. The solution we’ve developed offers tremendous ROI, with the majority of our clients recovering the initial investment within 6 months of completion.
