Here is where you can start increasing your profile's authority: Help Me

An optimized Google Business Profile formerly known as Google My Business, is the most visible and important 

search result for your business on the search results page.

It's the first and most prominent result shown when your business name is searched

as it's displayed at the top of the results page on both desktop and mobile views.

The Google Business Profile is also your most important and the easiest tool to use that directly affects your Local

SEO or Search Engine Optimization for your business in search results and Google Maps ranking.

 Starting and verifying your profile is easy; crafting and optimizing it to represent your business and keeping it

updated with new content including photos, videos and posts can be a challenge.

Knowing what content is prioritized and visible on both mobile and desktop is critical to success.

I was asked to speak on 'Why your Small Business needs a Google Business Profile" for the
#LevelUp Academy. The session includes a several ideas and suggestions on how to out rank your competition in

Google's 3-Pack and Google Map Pack in this session with a BONUS tip at the end.

Here is your link to the seminar:

Experience has proven over and over again that a higher rank in the map pack or 3 pack (visible at the top of

the google results on your mobile phone) results in more customer calls and engagements which leads to more sales.

Many profiles have been verified, but your basic profile that was started years ago will not rank neat the top 

 and lead to more visibility leading to new customers if it's not updated regularly with new photos,

videos and new posts and offers.

Regular Activities such as adding photos, updates, offers, products and services are just some of content that can be

added to the profile can work to increase ranking and increase conversions, both of these are critical to your success.

To increase attention and view time on your profile, successful local brands are turning professionals like us. So you

can focus on running your business. We work on optimizing and maintaining your Google Business Profile and

posting regularly so that your clients and people looking for your products and services are kept up to date.

Here are 8 steps to optimize your Google Business Profile:

1/ Make sure your Name Address and Phone Number are consistent and up to date (Pro Tip - Periods and

short forms must the same as on your website (and back links or citations) as St and St. or Street are not

viewed as the same address by the local search algorithm)

2/ Write your business description up to 750 characters long.

3/ Choose the best category for your business and add supplemental categories to help you business to be

found when searched. You can look at your top competitors for category ideas.

4/ Upload a variety (a minimum 10 to start) original images - use your mobile phone - to give people a feel for

your business and the products and services offered.

5/ Ask for and respond to every Google Review whether they are positive and negative.

6/ Add Google Update Posts - at least one a week - to increase local search visibility and let your clients know you 

are active and looking to help them. Updates and offers are more effective when they include a photo or short video.

7/ Add Products and Services to the profile to the relevant sections provided. Include a photo for

each product - as they are displayed prominently in mobile search results.

8/ Use Google Q&A's to provide additional information about your business, its products or services.

Optimizing your Google Business Profile will increase your findability and increase engagement

with clients and prospects with the goal of increasing sales and adding to your bottom line!

PRO TIP - When did you last see  how your business appears online?

- to see how your prospective customers view your business in local and traditional organic search results.

  Regular video posts, will increase the visibility of your expertise. Video content, that is properly

formatted for each social media site, is retained longer in memory and provides a perception of expertise that text

and photo posts alone cannot compete with Social Media Video.

Video posts are viewed longer and increase the opportunities for viewer's engagement with a post.

 PRO TIP: One of the most valuable metrics is video watch-time, not post views or likes.
