Google My Business (formerly Google+ Local & Place Page) Optimisation Services Hertfordshire UK

Google My Business Local Advertising - are you being found in your local area?

How can our "Google+ My Business" Local Service can help your business grow?

"Google My Business" (formerly G+ Local & Place Page) local business advertising is a highly effective form of website marketing for small and medium companies, whose customer bases are located in their own local geographical area. Google My Business provides your business with a great opportunity to raise your local profile, by appearing in the map that appears at the top of Google's organic search results, when a user enters a geographic word to their search query.

Google Maps Service Hertfordshire UK - Local Business Advertising HitchinRaising your local business profile will help you get found by local potential customers in your area, with a red map balloon pinpointing your specific location with directions, the option to provide detailed company information including opening times and payment terms, customer reviews, images, videos and special offers.

Regardless of your budget, this is one of many local advertising avenues that should be explored, with Google My Business being the most effective in attracting local customers to buy your products, services or solutions. However, optimising your listing to achieve high rankings within your community can be a challenge.

Why is claiming and optimising your own local Google business profile key for your business?

As with any business advertising, words really matter. Having your website listed at the top of a local business search (in the Google Map section) gives you an opportunity to capture potential customers before they see your competitor’s offers and services.

To be fully optimised, your company description should contain the most relevant keywords, as well as appeal to potential customers using:

  • Company imagery
  • Full product or service descriptions
  • Links to product or service pages
  • Company information such as opening times
  • Full contact details

As part of a wider small business SEO campaign or local link acquisition strategy, advertising within geo-targeted directories (commonly called "directory citations"), communities and online platforms is fundamental to growing your business locally and exposing why potential customers should contact you to the wider public. 

Claiming your own Google My Business account on Google means that it's safe in your own hands. Don't be that company that has a competitor claim a Gooogle My Business account that isn't theirs - it does happen!

Does your Google My Business profile include detailed descriptions, categories and social media profile links?

Whether you've had a poor performing Google My Business page that a) isn’t ranked within the first page of results, b) not included in the Map display at the top or c) would like to advertise locally for the first time with Google My Business, we have the experience and expertise to help your business be found locally. 

We'll take an initial look at your business profile and confirm where improvements are needed (including company descriptions, categories, images, profile and social media links) and how we can help.

The key to success with local search is in making sure your local customers find you before they find your competitors!
