Google My Business is the surest way to make sure your business gets found in Google search and maps results. Each time a homeowner searches for your business – like a referral trying to learn more about you or someone trying to find the top pro near them – you’re able to control what they find. Information like that could include your correct phone number, contact email, hours of operation, positive reviews, and special offers or helpful home maintenance tips…all without them needing to click to your website to learn more. In today’s online world, being able to present that much (correct) information in one place is not only a rare thing…its a game changer.
Here’s a bold prediction for you…
As Google continues to change, Google My Business is going to become the holy grail of your online presence.
Recent trends show Google is reducing organic traffic to your website, and instead placing more information about you (that they think is correct) directly inside the search results page. Google is taking this information from your website and other online profiles, and giving it to people without them having to do more work to find it. What this means is homeowners won’t have to click to your website to learn all about you in the near future. Therefore, Google My Business will then act as your official listing on the web. And, it’s going to be crucial that you not only claim your Google My Business profile, but you make sure that the information it shows about you is correct.
Hope to see you on the webinar!
