Google Business Profile: More than a maps listing
Any business today needs targeted visibility on Google, including optimising your Google Business listing
About this Event

Most businesses know that visibility online requires optimising their website and Google Ads, but what most don’t know is that there is a third entity that also needs optimising: their Google business listing.

Officially known as your Business Profile, this powerful listing is a dynamic snapshot of your business that highlights your best features and enables potential customers to quickly find, learn about, and engage with you.

The average business is found in 1009 searches per month with 84% of these coming from discovery searches. What's more on average 56% of actions on GMB listings are website visits - that's one source of traffic you don't want to ignore.

Google Business is way more than just a maps listing and failing to take it seriously or maximise its capability to talk to your ideal clients means missing out on some serious opportunities.

In this session, Simone Douglas Author of Seriously Social and CEO of Social Media AOK, will take you through the opportunities on the GMB platform and how to take advantage of them to position yourself in the right way.

We will cover how to write and optimise your profile for inbound sales enquiries and expanding your networks including all the updates such as:

  • Claiming your Business Profile
  • Completing every section of your Google My Business account
  • Being meticulous with contact information
  • How to select the right primary and secondary categories
  • Mark off applicable attributes
  • Writing a complete “from the business” description
  • Google posts editorial calendar
  • Using photos to sell
  • Answering customer questions
  • Collecting and responding to reviews
  • Adding your products and/or services
  • Setting up messaging
  • Maintaining your Business Profile
