Are you Utilizing Your Google my Business Profile to its Full Potential?
Google my Business (GMB) is more important now than ever before; it is essential for any company’s online presence. Think about it… where is the first place you go to look up a business, or anything really? Google, of course! So let’s discuss how you can use your Google my Business profile to its full potential.
Have you heard of Google Posts?
This is a feature introduced in 2017 but has recently become increasingly popular among business owners. Google Posts give business owners the power to post content directly into the search engine results pages. THAT IS HUGE! These posts show up in the local panel on Google search and on Google Maps.
What do I post on GMB?
Similar to Facebook and Instagram, you can create and share daily announcements, current specials or promotions, new products launches, or promote any upcoming events. Your Google Posts can include photos and videos with simple descriptions, a Call-to-Action (CTA), or even a direct link to drive traffic to your website (or wherever you want to lead them).
The key to a successful GMB post is to keep it relevant! This platform gives your customers a quick and easy way to access business information and updates without having to search the depth of the internet. This is an ideal place to share relevant content with people who are already Googling you.
Say a potential customer Googles you, your business profile will pop up on the right side of their screen. They can view your hours of operation, location, reviews…oh, and your Google Posts! Just like that, your specials for this month are right in front of their face, encouraging them to make that purchase because guess what? That promotion is going to end in a week. Now FOMO is setting in. You have created a sense of urgency in their mind, making them want your product/service even more.
See how effective Google my Business can be? If you are looking to increase your digital presence, GMB is the place to post!
