Google My Business Optimization

Why Google My Business (GMB) Optimization is Important to You

  • Sites that optimize their GMB page get 7x more clicks than those that don’t. That’s straight from Google!
  • Google currently owns 90% of the search market and has made GMB central to its local SEO strategy.
  • 50% of the people who conduct a local search (such as “used car dealer near me”) visit a store that day.
  • 75% of people never scroll past the first page of a Google search so if you’re not on the first page, then you’re in trouble.
  • An online review is as important as a personal recommendation for 9 in 10 shoppers. Simply put: Good reviews make you money!
  • 86% of people will hesitate to purchase from a business that has negative online reviews.

How We Optimize Your GMB Account

  • We audit your GMB account to identify a plan unique to your dealership.
  • We ensure that your account is properly setup to protect you against any lost opportunities or issues. This is critical!
  • We work with you to provide weekly updates to your GMB account, balancing between posts, photos, etc.
  • If the feature is available to you, we will set up Google Products so that your inventory can be available from your GMB account. (Note: This feature is in beta and is not available to all dealers.).
  • We can help you manage your reviews manually or set you up with our SurgeMyBusiness app to manage and surge your GMB reputation. Suggestion: Our SurgeMyBusiness app makes your life easier!
  • We use Insights and Google Analytics to track your success over time making adjustments based on all the data collected. We live for data to support your ROI!
  • And, we can even create Spanish language content if you are also marketing to the Hispanic community. There is no need for “We don’t have anyone who speaks Spanish.” to limit your business’ success!
