Part 1: An Introduction to Google My Business:
Transcript of the Video:
Hey guys. Mike McGeady, account manager and product specialist with 33 Mile Radius. Today I’m thrilled that we’re kicking off a series of videos aimed to educate business owners on the importance of Google My Business, and the significant role that it plays in your online marketing efforts. Regardless of your business; if you’re a baker with a retail location or a plumber with a service area, Google My Business is an effective way to engage your customers online.
As showcased by this local photographer, you have a clear understanding of who they are, what service that they’re providing, their location, best phone number, and their hours and operation. As you can see with their stunning photographs, they’re showcasing their most recent work to give the clients a better sense of who they are, and what they do.
Through reviews, it gives their customers an idea of how effective they are, and what people are saying about them. Google also pulls in web results related to their business and related to the industry that they serve. In typical Google fashion, Google also provides metrics that allow you to measure these efforts through clicks, through page views, and also, and most importantly, phone calls.
Over the next three videos I aim to educate you on three areas; management optimization of your page through best information, through posts and photographs, through interaction that allows you to engage your customers by getting reviews, and managing those reviews that you’ve received whether negative or positive, and then how to break down the analytics that Google is sharing with you. How to manage the clicks, how to manage the phone calls, and how to manage the page views.
