Google my Business 2020- Please Use it

WE adore GMB pages as a shopper

Google My Business (GMB) pages are a perfect tool for your clients!

A quick peek at a GMB page can save us from showing up to something that’s closed!!

You can work out if a business is erm sh*t, by checking the reviews beforehand!

Dan uses GMB to check for deals. His is a tight arse!!

Many plus points for businesses and the shopper

Oh, its nearly free (at the moment)

So, let us ask you a question?

WHY ARE YOU NOT USING THIS FREE MARKETING TOOL?

Ignoring the ‘leads’, when was the last time you logged into Google my Business to look at the data, keywords and insights? Seriously, use it!!!

The Future of Marketing?

Future of Marketing? I think we can all agree with this, whether you like it or not, is the future of marketing 👇🏻⚰️ We all agree that Marketing is about making a difference for your customers. Whether that’s for attention, new business, conversions, reach or clicks it’s about making a difference.

But it seems to me like we’re going backwards instead of embracing and learning the current way of marketing. I hear every week “PPC is getting too expensive!” and the truth is, you’re right. If you give Google your bank details, slap in some keywords and say off you pop Google, your bank account will be £0.00 by the morning.

But if you take your time to learn and invest in the art and science of digital marketing it’ll work in your favour. As cheesy as it sounds, the future of marketing is to give a damn about what you create and post. There are still so many companies posting for the sake of it, using marketing as a box-ticking exercise and it’s just not how it should be done.

📅 It takes time.

🏨 It needs care.

🔍 And it demands attention to detail.

That’s the future of marketing. Caring about what you put out for your own company and your clients. What do you think the future of is? Let me know in the comment section below!

Most popular websites to market while locked down

If truth be told, there is no such thing as a ‘best’ blog or website, because it all depends on the visitor. If the website doesn’t appeal to the person visiting the site, then it is useless, it really is!

Everyone is bored of the same old while we are in this lockdown. Facebook, Linkedin is just boring right now.

When you have some downtime, it is always good to use it well. After all, it’s not often we have this much time up our sleeves eh?!

This time of the year people will be looking to move away from the same social media, they don’t want to be reminded of the holiday they had to cancel!

There are hundreds of websites, communities and forums online, often years and years old but simply ‘untapped’, unused by your competitors – Why are you not using them?

You really need to be pushing your brand out into the public eye, not use the main social channels!

Prevent People from Stealing your Brand on PPC

How to Deal With Competitors Targeting Your Brand Terms Truth is, legally there isn’t ‘much’ you can do when it comes to #googleads unless you’re a #trademark.

A good legal can advise. However, in most cases, the #competitors ‘stealing from you’ don’t know they’re doing it when it comes down to PPC.

They’ve let Google run the campaign for them, it’s often a tell-tell sign into their #marketing antics, how clued up are they? This isn’t the most PPC guru information, far from it but in most cases we see, step one just hasn’t been thought about. Some quick tips on what you can do to slow, often stop people bidding on your brand names!

Top 5 things to consider for your website | Search for Beginners Ep 7 – Dans Video

Google's Advice SEO reaction.

There are so many myths, theories and well, gobbledygook when it comes to marketing a website.

You can’t beat getting information directly from the horse’s mouth rather than a friend up the road that dabbled in web design back in 1963.

Google released a few videos aimed at those who are looking to start building a website or getting better search positions in its search engines. We welcome the videos, so thank you, Google.

The truth is, no one 100% knows the facts about Google’s algorithms. We have always been honest and transparent with our clients, never promised anything we can’t do but to this day, we still have the same clients as we did nearly nine years ago. Pick a local business group, and you would have most likely heard of us, we’re not arrogant, but we’ve worked very hard to be one of the most recognised SEO and Marketing companies in the local areas. (although we now have national and global clients in the mix).

Where are we going with this? Well, we are well known for cutting out the hype, tosh and up to a point, proving a point. We have been quite public and set up case studies that clearly show the difference between fact and hype when it comes to Google and gaining exposure within its services.

There are so many myths and thoughts about SEO and Google rankings. We thought we would run a set of videos that placed our comments alongside Google’s advice.

Google’s video ‘Top 5 things to consider for your website | Search for Beginners Ep 7’

The video covers the following topics

  • Website & local business discovery on Google Search High-quality content
  • Fast & easy-to-access content on all devices
  • Website security
  • External help with SEO

Yet some of the top SEO myths doing the rounds, and have for years

  • SEO is Dead
  • Content Is All You Need
  • Link Building is Dead
  • SEO is Voodoo or Snake Oil
  • Speed Isn’t That Important
  • You Must Submit Your Site

Very few myths have any valid source to back them up. Dan gets rather frustrated with wrong information because it causes business owners to follow the wrong goals, more so when services that should know better use them to their advantage to gain a few more quid!

Please do watch Dan’s video, if you have any questions then do get in touch.

How to add Services to Facebook Page

Believe it or not, Facebook business pages are far from dead, the rules got more onerous, but it is far from over.

The services tab section on Facebook allows professional services to create a services tab to highlight well….services. You might as well use it!

In this post, you’ll discover how to use the Services section of your Facebook page.

Here is a quick video guide but if like us, you’re a reader over a video person then please scroll down.

How to add Services to Facebook Page

Clearly, you will need to be logged in to your Facebook account. You will then need to go to your Facebook business page and look for the settings on the top right.

Facebook Services Tab

 

Choose Templates and Tabs

On the lefthand side of the settings menu, you will see a link called ‘Templates and Tabs’.

Facebook Templates and Tabs

 

Facebook Services Tab

You will then need to click the ‘services’ tab; this will activate the services tab on your facebooks business page. This will then show a Facebook services tab on the client/front end of the business page.

Add tab to Facebook page

 

 

Turn on Facebook Services Tab

You will then need to click the ‘add tab’ button next to the services tab. As you can see below, you will also have other options to add to your Facebook business profile.

Facebook Add a Tab

Add Services

You will then need to go to the front end of your Facebook page. You will now see your new ‘services tab.’

Facebook Services Tab

 

List my Services

Click the new services tab button. You will be greeted with a big button saying ‘add a service’. You need to follow the simple steps, and your job is complete, you now have a services section on your Facebook page,

Add services Facebook

Facebook Service Tab Tips & Tricks

Quick Tips!

Quick Facebook Tip No. 1:

You will need the size of the images to be 160×160 pixels (your profile photo is 180×180 pixels for size, 160×160 pixels for image) to get it to fit just so. There you go!

Quick Facebook Tip No. 2:

There is no way to reorder your services once you set them up. They are ordered by how they are entered but backwards. So the first service you entered is at the bottom of your list, and the last service tab you enter will be at the top.

Quick Facebook Tip No. 3:

You do not have to enter your pricing – you can use that area as a call to action: contact us for more info, call for pricing, etc. You do not need to enter numbers at all.

A few final thoughts about the Services tab:

Do we think that Facebook’s services tab will be bringing in floods of customers? No, not at all. However, there is nothing worse than seeing a business who is semi-active on Facebook with a decent following using the default sidebar that doesn’t do anything, take advantage and customise your page to your advantage.

If you feel that your Facebook page is slowly dying, maybe thinking ‘what’s the point?’ then speak to someone who can help you make it perform better.****
