Should Your Business Have a GMB Page?

As a small business owner, you have many responsibilities – from managing your finances to marketing your brand – all while looking for ways to expand your business in a cost-effective manner. One of the most effective ways to boost your company’s visibility online is by creating a Google My Business (GMB) page. In this article, we’ll explore the reasons why your business should have a GMB page, and how it can benefit from this free tool.

GMB Pages help you appear in local search results.

When potential customers search for businesses like yours, Google uses geolocation data to display results that are most relevant to their location. By creating a GMB page, you can ensure that your business appears in local search results, giving you an edge over your competitors who don’t have a GMB page. Your GMB page includes essential information like your business name, address, and phone number, as well as your hours of operation, reviews, and photos.

GMB Pages help build your credibility and trustworthiness.

When customers search for your business, they want to know that they can trust you. A fully optimized GMB page can help you build credibility with customers by providing them with accurate and up-to-date information about your business. Not only does this give customers more confidence in choosing your business, but it also helps improve your local search ranking, making it easier for new customers to find you.

GMB Pages improve your customer engagement.

By creating a GMB page, you can engage with customers in a more personal and meaningful way. Customers can leave reviews on your page, and you can respond to these reviews, showing your customers that you value their feedback. Additionally, you can post updates about your business, share photos, and even create Google posts to promote your products and services.

GMB Pages are free and easy to set up.

Perhaps the best reason to create a GMB page is that it’s completely free and easy to set up. All you need is a Gmail account, and you can create and manage your GMB page using the Google My Business dashboard. The GMB dashboard also provides you with valuable analytics data, giving you insights into how customers are engaging with your business online.

In conclusion, if you’re a small business owner looking to improve your online presence, a Google My Business page is one of the most effective ways to do so. By creating a GMB page, you can boost your local search ranking, build your credibility with customers, and engage with them in a more meaningful way – all while maintaining a cost-effective marketing strategy.

What photos or videos do you use?

By default, we can use the photos you have on your website as well as utilizing the plethora of photos available to us within our royalty free library.

If you have photos or videos for us to use, depending on your subscription, we welcome you to upload them into a Google Drive folder and share that link with us!

Looking for custom videos?  Some of our plans include videos or you can add them to any plan starting at $98/mo!

How do you mimic my branding colors and style?

As mentioned above, depending on your plan, we can use whatever you’d like to provide us! If not, we’ll resort to using your website or our royalty free library.

That being said, we can come up with custom graphics that suit your branding style as an add-on to your posting subscription.

$98/month for 3 custom graphics each week
$148/month for 5 custom graphics each week

Note: The cost of custom graphics is on top of your monthly subscription cost

What is content review & approval?

Content review and approval is where your social media content creator sends you a weeks worth of posts, prior to their designated publication time the following week.

This way, you will have the chance to give us feedback on each post in case you’d like us to make a minor edit.

Note: One round of editing per post permitted, depending on your plan.

What are the results I can expect from your posting services?

The idea behind consistent posting onto your social media pages is to keep them active with content that promotes your business solutions, educates your audience to showcase your expertise and to also keep things lighthearted, it’s social media after all!

There’s nothing worse for a business than to earn someone looking into what you do, only for them to see a barren social media page. To them, it may appear that you are out of business or potentially a scam.

We are often asked about growing followers and generating sales or leads. These are great goals to have but please understand that those goals are better obtained through paid advertising campaigns.

For more information on paid advertising, please visit our paid advertising services.

Do you use a posting scheduler and how do you get access to my business pages?

We are fortunate to be partnered with CloudCampaign.com to utilize their excellent scheduling platform.

By signing up for our content services, we will set you up with your own Cloud Campaign workspace depending on your plan.

During onboarding we request admin access to your social accounts using a secure platform. This allows us to manage the occasional disconnect when the platforms push out updates.

Furthermore, with your own workspace you are welcome to view and edit content at your leisure!

Why do my posts say “Posted by Cloud Campaign”

We use Cloud Campaign, which is a 3rd party app, to scale social media management and posting. When a post says “Posted by Cloud Campaign”, it is only the admins of your company page that can see this and not your followers.
