What Pictures to Include on your Google Business Page: http://blog.promarketme.com/what-to-include-on-your-google-listing-page/
So now you have have your page up and running with pictures showcasing your business. What’s next?
- Write an Introduction about your company. Give potential customers a short but sweet write up about your business. Including aspects like your business name, top products, and free estimates will help give internet users an idea about your company. Keep your introduction between 5 & 10 sentences. Remember, you have a website you can direct the potential customer too!
- Post your hours of operations. The biggest complaint I hear from clients when I first meet them is that they tried contacting numerous companies, yet no one picked up the phone or returned calls. Its best if you can post your hours of operation clearly on the site and be sure there is a way for a potential customer to communicate with you during these times! You can customize your business hours however you choose. Just be sure to pick up your phone during your business hours!
- Insert Categories which you specialize in. In the first blog about listing your business on Google, you listed your major category of business. Now is the opportunity to list any other specialties you have. The more categories you can list, the better chances a customer will reach you!
- Finalize your other two major contact options. (Phone number & Website) Customers will either want to pick up the phone and call you -or- look at your website and learn more about your business. Make sure you list both your phone number and website address so a potential customer can easily find this information.
Now you have all of your major business components complete for your Google Business Listing! Remember that this is your initial bit of information you are uploading to Google. Be sure to keep your information up-to-date and fresh in all categories!
