What is Google+ ?
Why is Google+ important for your business?
A Google + page is also important because it is one of the first results to be shown when you search for your business. It provides a quick link to your website, business opening hours, and contact information.
At the Net Shop, we can help to optimise and promote your Google+ business pages. so you gain maximum exposure. These pages are especially important for local business searches and ranking high in the search results.
Tips for optimising your Google+ Business Profile
- Complete Your ‘About Me’ section
There’s nothing worse than having an incomplete profile. Google doesn’t like it and neither do your prospective customers. Remember to complete all sections.
Google wants to see a full portfolio of photos on your Google + profile, so upload as many as it allows. You can not have enough images!
Perhaps one of Google’s favourites. Get your clients to review your business, and no, not with all 5 stars across the board. Google wants to see honesty and accuracy. Any review is better than none.
This one may seem a little surprising, but in fact, many business owners have not claimed ownership of their Google + page. Without ownership you cannot control the content on your Google + profile, and you can’t respond to your customers!
If you have recently moved business location and you have not updated your address, you can be severely penalised for this. Ensure that all your listings have your correct, Name, Address and Telephone number.
Google wants its ‘Posts’ page to catch on, which means it will be pleased if it sees you using the features such as embedding links, sharing content via social media, and communicating with other Google users
Google has recently implemented the hashtag into its posts feature. Use hashtags to call out your favourite celebrities or products, who knows, you just might get a response!
Join some Google + Hangouts in order to meet like minded people and promote your business in your local community.
