Why you need to optimize your Google My Business listing

Having the Google My Business listing for your business professionally optimized has the potential to get the name, address and phone number for your business spread across the internet and placed in front of local consumers who are actively looking for your product or service prior to making a purchase.

We do traditional SEO (Search Engine Optimization), but first we focus on optimizing your Google My Business listing to improve the ranking of your business in local search results – SERPs – which builds trust and credibility for your business.

Google My Business (formerly, Google Places) listings are more important in organic search results – listings that show up because they are relevant to the search terms and not because of an advertisement.

Users are happier because they are getting the information they need. Google My Business Pros / Velocity Marketing specializes in Google My Business optimization for a wide variety of businesses. We know the important components necessary to improve your local rankings and know what is critical for your business success online.

What does Optimizing your Google My Business Listing do for you?

Printed phone books became door stops or high chair booster seats.  People don’t run to the yellow pages when they need to locate things anymore.  They turn to the internet – frequently – via their cell phones.  Smartphones are part of our everyday lives today and, especially when one is out and about, it’s much easier to locate what you need via your phone. In today’s marketplace, shoppers expect to find any local business listed in their search results, which is why having an optimized Google My Business listing is vital to the success of your business.

Why not do the Google My Business Optimization yourself?

Most business owners are totally focused on running, building and growing their businesses. You may have heard about Google My Business and what it means to your business success.  You may also have wondered:

  • What does it take to have my business listed in search results for my niche?
  • Why do my competitors show up in local search and my business does not?
  • What do I need to do to get my customers to write great reviews for my business?
  • What do I need to do to get  stars by my business name?
  • What do I need to do to get current photos and videos of my business to show up in listings?

  • What do I need to do to make my business show up in the correct niche?
  • What do I need to do to get MY business ranked in local searches?
  • What do I need to do to get MY business to rank at the top of local searches?

Having your business listed in the top of local search results brings more customers to you – because they find you first when they search for your product or service.  It’s not necessary to bombard your customers/potential customers with advertising if your business is ranked high in the SERPs.
