Whether you're looking to increase your established traffic flow or boost the visibility of your fledgling business, there's no denying that Google is the king of modern advertising. This is especially true of local searches, in which 78% of queries from mobile devices ultimately lead to offline conversions. If you aren't actively managing the way your local business shows up in these results, you could be missing out on a golden opportunity.
Google Business Profile, formerly known as Google My Business, is the search giant's attempt to make this process easier. This tool essentially allows you to control and correct the information that users see when your company appears in search returns. Nonetheless, building and maintaining a successful profile is still a challenge for many businesses. That's where we come in.
Why Invest in Google My Business Profile Management?
Although Google Business Profile is a potentially potent advertising tool, most local businesses simply don't have the time or expertise to leverage it fully. Managing your business profile properly can easily consume several hours per week — hours that would almost certainly be better spent elsewhere. Our service allows you to focus on what you do best while we take care of the dirty work behind the scenes.
With professional Google Business Profile management, you'll reap all the rewards of prominent placement in Google's local search results. This includes increased online and in-person traffic, greater engagement on Google Maps and higher visibility and location authority. In a world where search rankings can be a major determining factor in the success or failure of a business, we'll help put you in the right spot.
If you've claimed your Google Business Profile and added some basic information, give yourself a pat on the back. Statistics suggest you're already ahead of more than half of local businesses. Unfortunately, that may not be nearly enough. Search traffic is notoriously top-heavy, with the top-ranked return alone often swallowing up a quarter of all clicks. To break through this barrier, you need a plan of action designed specifically for you and your business.
We want to make it as simple as possible for businesses to have their Google Business Profile optimized and maintained with a hands-off approach for business owners. We offer to pricing models to fit businesses that are just looking to have their listing optimized and accurate or those looking for routine maintenance.

GMB/GBP OPTIMIZATION AND MANAGEMENT
Our initial audit can eliminate errors and other common mistakes, but taking your listing to the next level requires a more personalized approach. Our profile optimization service dissects every detail of your listing to help you effectively reach the demographics and markets that are most valuable to your business. This includes:
Not only have we spent years optimizing Google Maps listings, we stay on top of each new feature to ensure your profile is 100% accurate and feature-rich.
We start by conducting and analyzing a detailed Local SEO audit that looks across a range of metrics.
We assist you in getting your listing created, claimed or re-claimed and verified in your own account.
We then make sure the key players in your organization, ourselves and no one else has access to your listing.
We use the results of our audit, competitor research and business information provided by you to make sure your listing is 100% optimized.
We then setup online review monitoring software, and provide monthly reports of everything we've worked on to improve your listing.
Based on feedback from our audit and Google Business Profile Customer Insights, we will continue to monitor, optimize and update your listing.
Our Google profile management services do include monthly monitoring of your online reviews. However, review responses are not included. We can help consult on when/how to respond to reviews and when to flag reviews for removal in Google as a professional courtesy, however Reputation Management Services would be a separate cost.
Absolutely. We will access your Google business listing through delegate access by being added to the profile as a manager but you will still control your listing and can revoke our access at any time. In rare cases in which we need to create the listing for your business, we can transfer ownership of the profile to you after it is created and verified.
This is a great question and one at the heart of this service. Basically, once we have your profile audited and fully optimized we will login weekly to first check to see if there are any updates Google is about to apply from other sources. We will approve or deny these updates, check for new reviews, perhaps confirm office hours and review customer uploaded photos, work with you to update business information such as hours of operation or upcoming holiday hours. If new features are released we will be sure to confer with you on how we can take part in and maximize those features. Twice a month we will create custom Google Posts for your business and check for and report competitors who are tryin to game the system. These are just a few of the tasks we will perform throughout the month but we have a detailed checklist to keep track of all optimizations and make sure we're not missing anything during our audit or maintenance. The goal of this service is for you, the business owner, to feel 100% secure that your GMB/GBP Profile is in great hands, has accurate information and is taking advantage of new features and releases to the product.
As mentioned above, the goal of this service (outside of all the hard work and optimizations we put into it) is for the business owner to have "peace of mind" that their listing is being taken care of. Some months will require more work than others but we feel that with the growing importance of Google Business Profiles, the great opportunity it presents for driving leads to your business and the low cost of entry to having professional account management, the service is well worth investing in.
According to the 2021 Local Search Ranking Factors Survey, Google Business Profile signals were the top ranking factor in Google's local search algorithm at 36% with reviews, on-page signals, citations and links also playing critical factors in online rankings. There is no question that if a business wants to rank locally, getting their Google Business Profile in order is the first step!
