Spending a few hours in front of some trade business owners and talking to potential clients this last week I always like to give them a few easy to implement but high return things they can do to make difference to their business.
And this week is was Google Business Pages.
Especially for business that don’t have a website.
You see, unlike Facebook, people go to Google with a definite purpose in their mind as it probably easier to find exactly what they were you looking for.
A Google business page will come up in a Google search that shows you on a map when someone is searching for things that are location based.
For my face to face, service based clients it is all about location, location, location.
Claiming your page will allow you to appear on the map.
Once you have claimed your page you can add some information about your business and it will also allow you get reviews about your business.
Reviews about your services can provide proof that you are the best choice for the potential customer.
Try it for yourself.
Google plumbers (your suburb) and see what comes up.
Google fish and chips (your suburb) and see what comes up.
See what catches your eye and of course where it comes up on the page.
Is it just the location, or is it the business with 4 or 5 stars next to its name?
If you notice it, chances are others will too.
You want to ensure that you are right in the sight of your local potential customers, showcasing your business and your happy clients.
