Have you registered with Google Maps?

Does your business have a Google Map listing? If NOT,then you are missing out on one of the biggest GIANT shifts in technology being used today.

 

 

Here’s what I mean:

Your clients and prospective clients are now using SMART technology to find you. They are using Google or their mobile phones, iPods, and Ipads to search within their local area for your service.

The Yellow Pages are now being replaced by online technology such as Google as the number 1 source for finding your business.

In my opinion, I believe that the Yellow Pages is DEAD as a source for newbusiness. For me, I’d rather make use the internet or my mobile phone rather than search around for a big yellow book .

I just tried it on my Droid. I’ve got this FREE Droid “app” (Google Search), I typed in “hair salon” and then pressed search.

Up came a few hair salons in my local area. It’s really smart. This “app” automatically picks up my current location and only returns the results within that area.

Same thing if I want a restaurant. Just type in “restaurant” and local results are shown.

This is where it gets really interesting. Have you done a search on Google lately?

Google has just changed how it searches and the search results it returns. And it’s going to effect YOUR business whether you like it or not!

I just typed in the same keyword “hair salon” without any geographic location eg. “hair salon Temple, Tx“. The results it returned were hair salons in my local area. So Google is now returning LOCAL search results.

 


Are you starting to understand the power of this?

But here’s the catch!

For your business to appear, you must have setup a Google listing. And this is something that only 3% of businesses have done. Do the math… 97% of businesses have NOT setup their
Google local business listing.

Now consider this?

When doing a search, 34% of people today are using the listings on Google Maps to find a local business. And this number is growing daily! They could be using the internet or their smartphone. And they’re looking for YOUR business!

Is your business able to be FOUND using Google Maps? There’s a very strong possibility that the answer is NO!
