Google is going Local!…. and they are giving away FREE advertising to businesses who service a local area!
What is “Google Places”?
A Google search with a place name…. “hairdressers in Winchester”, is classified as a “Local” search. and when Google recieves this search, it displays it SMACK, BANG in the middle of its search results……. “Google Places”
Tap into thousands of customers that are searching locally for your products and services every day.
- Did you know that when a Google Places display is triggered by Google, searchers can then see images of your business from your listing (fantastic place to put attractive image ads or photos of you and your premises)
- Did you know that they can also see exactly where you are situated (if customers come to you) or your contact details if you go to them?
- Did you know that there is a network of local search websites that provide “customer reviews” of every business that exists…including yours . Do you know what they are saying about you? If they’re saying good things..great! But what if they’re not? You need to manage your reputation online….especially as everyone has an internet enabled mobile phone in their pocket and they ALL search for products and services directly from their phone….They also compare YOUR prices to those on comparison websites, from their mobiles…and if you are not able to differentiate yourself from the competition, in some way….why would they buy from you?
- Did you know, it’s possible for potential customers to search for your business online…..download a discount voucher from you to their phone, and take that into your business and present it, as an electronic voucher. ….They simply show you the voucher, displayed right there on their mobile phone…… It means they can claim a discount on your products or services, right there, on the spot….. Could this be a reason to buy from you?
Do you realize that Google is fighting off intense competition from a number of competitors to be your Local Search Provider? That’s why this is free (FOR NOW) but your competitors are catching up fast…and soon if you don’t claim your listing, optimize it and refresh it, to maintain the position at the top of the Google places listings….it will be gone, and you will have missed the biggest opportunity to place your business in front of your local market!
The exciting news is: You can STILL get in ahead of the trend!
What Is Included In Our Google Places Optimization Service?
- Keyword research…..you need to know which search terms your customers use to find you, and then you need to know which have the most searches in Google monthly…..because there’s no point in ranking for terms without searches! We perform a keyword research for you that determines what search terms to compete on, and how to structure those words on your Places listing so they have the maximum effect. We use Google itself for the research, so that we have accurate search information.
- 10 photo adverts…..they need to be the right size, resolution and have clever “calls to action” to be effective. They also need to be “tagged” using the keywords discovered above.
- 5 Videos….Video marketing is crucial. There are many types of video, which can be used to showcase your products or services on mobile phones as well as directly from your Google Places listing or website of you have one.
- Mobile or smart-phone coupons….give them good reason to buy from you……especially as most of your competitors will not be using this….and probably don’y even know they exist.
- 5 Reviews….Your listing will only “take off” if people are talking about it…..and besides the power of “Social Proof”…(that is other people recommending your products or services)….is well documented.
- Online Reputation Services Management………We scan, we search and we monitor your reviews. We then manage them by answering any issues that may arise, and we ensure that your reputation is not being unfairly soiled! It does happen…stories abound of competitors posting fake bad reviews. We know what to do about that, should you ever be unlucky to have this happen to you.
- We guarantee your listing for 12 Months…..in the Google Places Display pane in positions A to G, and if for any reason we can’t do that…our services are FREE
- Comprehensive Monthly Report…..so that you can see exactly how you’re doing, and if all those people searching fro you can see you.
Why is this so crucial?
Local, mobile and social search, are taking over the old business channels, because the Yellow Pages, the Thomson local and the local newspapers are dying on the vine……and if you doubt this, here’s something to consider.
- 25.5 Million smart phones sold in the U.K. since 2005
- There are 5 times more smartphones than computers
- Apple recently announced the 25 billionth application download.
These are all excellent reasons, why you should optimize your Google places listing right away…today!
Because if you don’t, your competitors surely will
Questions you might have:
Q. Once I pay what happens?
A. If you have already claimed your listing…Great, we contact you right away, we will call and email using the details you have given us in the order. If you haven’t already claimed your listing…no problem, we’ll still contact you and get your listing for you. This may take some time, but we do need to verify the listing first, and Google send these via mail, so it is not quick!
Q. Why do you need 12 months?
A. The problem is that if the content is NOT refreshed on a regular basis, the listing will drop..and the reality is that no one knows how Google really works….(don’t work with anyone who tells they do), it is one of the most closely guarded secrets in the world…and we will be constantly struggling against your competitors, especially as Google Places listings become more and more valuable. It also takes time to complete the listing, get reviews from customers and tie it all together…..
and we feel that you will only get the full benefit over a 12 month period. Besides, if we don’t keep you in the A to G positions, it’s FREE.
Q.What happens with the videos?
A. Video marketing is a huge area and a very important one. We provide you with 5 basic videos which portray your products or services and can be viewed on computers as well as mobile phones. This service is provided as part of the monthly contract. However, if more advanced videos are required, we can help you with that as well.
Q. How do you get customer reviews?
A. If you don’t already have testimonials or reviews that we can use, we can use some creative ways to encourage your customers to review your products or services , and place those reviews, where we know Google will see them and add them to your Google Places profile.
Q. Is there anything else to buy if I purchase this service?
A. The services listed above are all inclusive in the monthly fee. You will not need to purchase anything else, to optimize and maintain your Google Places listing.
This service is much the same as other services we offer for normal website optimization which cost up to £500 per month, but we want to make this affordable to local businesses so the Google Places service is only £147 per month. GUARANTEED FOR 12 MONTHS! Hundreds of people have already paid nothing for us to claim their Google Places Listing for them, and that service is also part of this offer! (If you haven’t already claimed your listing that is!)
Your Google Places listing will be 3mm below the Pay Per Click listing, where they are paying anything from £1 to £40 per click! (Depending on the market you serve.) What does that make your Google Places listing worth? Assuming a “Pay per Click” of £1, that’s equal to just 63 clicks per month, and when you stop paying those people stop calling your phone number…… instead of which you get to place your business in front of all the people searching for you every day, and assuming you are maintaining your listing, you get all calls for nothing!
Our Guarantee……..If for any reason your listing is NOT in position A to G it’s FREE….. in fact we only WANT to get paid, for getting YOU the results you want!
