In today's world, most people are using the internet to aid any buying decisions they need to make.  From selecting a plumber or an auto mechanic, to choosing a hotel, we're searching on Google and doing our own research to choose the best company.

The Importance of Getting Google Reviews – 003

Thanks for checking out episode 3 of our brand new show, Local SEO.  Once we got into the editing room, we had a bit of a surprise on this episode.  One of our microphones failed, our first real "rookie mistake" in this production. We had to get a little creative with the audio from the other mics, and we think the end result turned out okay.  The topics we cover are great, and the recording turned out really well.  So, even with one microphone down, we opted to push forward with this episode instead of re-recording it.  Enjoy! Google Reviews, Bing Places for Business, Apple Maps, and Google My Business Messanging For our third episode, we cover a range of topics.  First we'll stay on the Google My Business (GMB) subject, as we dive into the importance of getting reviews on your GMB page, and how reviews and ratings help build confidence for prospective customers. We'll also talk about a new feature recently released for GMB - the Messaging feature.  This cool feature allows you to directly interact with customers via SMS text messaging, right from your GMB page.  Best of [...]
