As a digital marketing firm, our greatest satisfaction comes from stepping in when a client is in difficulty, and then witnessing their rapid progress and prosperity within a few months. We truly relish in transforming struggling businesses into thriving enterprises.
Throughout our 10-year history, we’ve learnt that embarking on a journey to maximise your business’s potential through Google My Business (GMB) optimisation is a strategic move that can reap substantial rewards.
In this insightful post, we’ll unveil the step-by-step process that catapulted a landscaping business to over 100 phone calls by fully optimising its GMB.
1. Image optimisation
putting your business in the limelight
The first cornerstone of our strategy was to enhance the visual appeal of the landscaping business on its GMB. Leveraging the power of geotagging, we utilised the GeoImg tool to optimise the client’s images. By embedding geographical metadata into the images, we ensured they were not just visually appealing but also locally relevant.
Taking it a step further, we conducted a competitive analysis by searching for our client’s service in Essex. Our focus was on the top 3 competitors, and we meticulously counted the images on their listings. Armed with this data, we strategically added more images to our client’s GMB than any of their closest competitors, ensuring a visually compelling and competitive profile.
2. Pleper tool
unveiling hidden opportunities for enhanced visibility
To broaden the scope of our client’s GMB, we employed the Pleper tool. By conducting a service-specific search and utilising the category helper feature, we uncovered a plethora of related categories associated with landscaping. Seizing this opportunity, we strategically incorporated all relevant categories into our client’s listing, allowing them to rank for a myriad of landscaping variations.
3. Niche business directories
establishing domain authority and relevance
Recognition in niche business directories is a testament to a business’s expertise and relevance. In our optimisation journey, we sought out landscaping-related directories and ensured our client’s business was listed on them. This not only showcased their specialisation but also sent a signal to Google, elevating the prominence of their GMB.
4. Consistency across channels
a congruent presence
Ensuring consistent business information across all channels is paramount for building trust with both users and search engines. We meticulously audited and aligned our client’s information across various platforms, fostering a cohesive and trustworthy online presence.
a testimony to excellence
In the realm of local business, reviews wield unparalleled influence. Our strategy included not only amassing reviews but surpassing the count of all competitors. By becoming the best-reviewed landscaping business in the area, our client secured the top spot on the maps, instilling confidence and trust among potential customers.
