GOOGLE BUSINESS PROFILE IT'S A GAME CHANGER

Google Business Profile formally known as Google My Business is your solution to getting your business found online. Let me help you get your business featured on Google top pages.

Why You Need A Google Business Profile?

If you have a local business that serves a specific geographic area, you could be missing out on potentially the greatest source of business that has ever been, by not having a Google Business Profile!

Google is where your customers go to find what they are looking for. It's where they head to find a local business, see what the business does, find out when they are open, check out their reviews and to see how to get in touch with them.

If your business is not visible on Google, you might as well put up a sign saying 'going out of business'!

1 in 3 Google searches are for local businesses like 'Plumber in Barnsley', 'Pizza Takeaway in Wakefield', 'Nail Bar in Castleford', 'Italian Restaurant Near Me', 'Car Showroom in Huddersfield', 'Bars in Sheffield' or 'Roofer in Leeds', I hope you get the drift.

If a local competitor is featured higher than you on Google, they literally are taking customers that could be yours and food from your mouth.

Did you know that 96% of all business searchers will never actually look past Google's first page.

The Benefits of Having a Google Business Profile

Here's my run down of the major benefits the worlds No.1 Search Engine can bring to your local business door.

Your Business Will Be Easier To Find in the Real World

A Google Business Profile doesn't just tell customers that your business is somewhere nearby. It gives them the exact location along with a map (with directions if they wish) making it much easier for customers to actually find you. In order for your business to make money, customers need to find you first.

Get Better Business Visibility On The Web

The sheer volume of people using Google to find companies and products should be enough to convince you that you need to use Google Business Profile to the fullest extent possible to gain better local business visibility in Google. 

Share Information About Your Business

If you’ve searched on Google, you will have seen the three local businesses (and more hidden below these) that appear below the paid adverts and above the organic search results. This is known as the Google 3-Pack and it is the golden location for a local business to be featured. When potential customers see you here they’ll see more than just a name. They can see business hours, directions, photos, click to call, website link, virtual tour link, reviews and the ability to message business direct, making being in the 3-Pack the best place for a local business to be.

Get Fresh With Customers

Get an even greater edge by posting offers, promotions, new products, events or facts about your business to customers searching on Google. This is an amazing opportunity to reach your local community in a fresh new way and tell them about your business.

Gain Valuable Customer Insights

Learn about your customers through the Insights tab. Here you can check your visibility, engagement and audience and get a breakdown of followers including ages, genders and countries making it easier to review and tweak what actually works for you.

Manage & Develop Business Reviews

56% of consumers say that they first go to the search engines to check out reviews before making a purchase and 74% of people say that a positive review increases their trust in a local business. Use your Google Business Profile to showcase your reviews.

Track Website Traffic & Your Business Audience

The Google analytic tool will give you even more in-depth information and break it down so you can really fine tune your posts and content to the audiences that are following you.

Google Business Profile is FREE to Use

You read that right. Google Business Profile is a FREE service, in fact in our minds it is the greatest Free tool a business could have in the fight to find new business. When you use Google Business Profile to its fullest you will open up the door to new customers seeing your business information every day, who doesn't want more business.

Getting To The Top In Google Is Harder Than It Looks

But then again, when is anything that is truly valuable in life ever easily achieved!

The Google Good Stuff

  • Google Business Profile is FREE to use
  • Your business will be easier for customers to find 
  • 46% of Google searches have local intent
  • Your business will get increased visibility online
  • Share valuable business information with potential customers 
  • Reach customers on a fantastic new platform
  • 50% of "near me" searches on mobile result in a store visit
  • Learn more about your customers
  • Develop positive reviews which impact on your business trust rating

The Google Not So Good Stuff

  • It takes time, knowledge and understanding to master how to get the best out of Google
  • It takes investment in several key pieces of software to be able to apply the new knowledge you learn that will enable you to grow
  • Google constantly changes it's algorithm for ranking on it's search engine so you have to keep up to date with the changes 
  • Unknown user generated content can be a threat unless managed professionally
  • Google Business Profile needs constant monitoring as it is open to sabotage from competition
  • Google Business Profile takes time to develop, it should be seen as a marathon not a sprint

My Personal Recommendation

Google Business Profile might be a free service but your time is not free. In order to grow your business on Google, and aim for one of the coveted top 3 local listings (The Google 3-Pack), you really need the help of someone who knows what needs to be done and who has the resources to be able to do it!

This will save you the time and stress of learning another skill set, save your business money on figuring out what actually works and save the cost of the myriad of expensive software tools that you will need to get the best from Google Business Profile. 

As Google constantly revises the algorithms that decide on the order of results in the search engine, you have to view getting to the top of Google as a 'marathon rather than a sprint'.

Your Google Business Profile should always be a work in progress, a continuous cycle of alterations, tweaks and new strategies to counteract the changes that Google makes to the algorithm, and prevent malicious content or user generated changes that can affect your brands reputation and how far your business is seen in search results.

I can help give your business the boost in needs in order to reach the top and stay there. Growing your business on Google is a puzzle, you have to tackle many tasks and put all the pieces together to be able to see the big picture, let me help you.

Every business will have a different starting point, depending on what has previously been done with your Google Business Profile.
