7 Tips to Activate Prospects Using Google My Business

with Victor Machado

Learn why “Google My Business” has become a key channel for businesses. Understanding the algorithms will maximize views, such as knowing how often to post, what images and messages to post, understand keywords that attract attention. It is key to understand how to be responsive on mobile devices and how to move up in organic searches.

  • Insights are the key to all other activities
  • Post once a week (at a minimum) and generate over 7,000 views monthly
  • Simple but thoughtful messages paired with a great image
  • Give your audience an action that leads back to your business: "Learn More," "Book," "Call Now."
  • Leverage the 4 special call-outs: What's New, Event, Offer, Product
  • Set-up Products to match what you have on your website & show on Google searches
  • *Pro-tip* Go deep in Services (leverage Insights!)
  • Reviews matter now more than ever, but acknowledging them really moves you up in searches
  • Messaging - Setup GMB on your mobile and be responsive!
  • Define your Service Area in the Info section.

Closing: Google rewards info and activity by moving you up in organic searches. Make it easier for the algorithm to know you!
