Hey, what's up?

Kyle with Steady Calls here.

Say, I wanted to send you this video to make sure that you are getting the maximum attention from your Google My Business Listing as possible. So in this video, I'm going to show you three different things:

First of all, how you normally show up in your Google My Business Listing. You're going to be familiar with this one, but I want to point out a few statistics.

Secondly, I want to show you how your company's listing shows up around town. I'm going to use a special Heat Map tool for this.

Thirdly, I want to show you where you could be and I will in doing. So, I'll introduce the purpose of Steady Calls, alright?

So, let's dive in! Let's dive into the first part how your Google My Business Listing normally shows up and how it works, okay?

People searching for concrete services will search concrete services near whatever location. In this case, you're in Rockford so that's what we're doing, right? Inside here, this is what's going to go down. Majority of people we're going to scroll down here and they're going to stop here. Sometimes, you're going to have some ads up here.

And in light of that, you're going to lose about 5 to 15% of people coming down, but 60 to 70% of people will stop at the Google My Business Listings. Then, the last few will go down here, but the majority come here. In order to find all the Google My Business Listings, you got to click on "View All" but really hardly anyone does that.

Statistically speaking, it's most important to be in these first three listings, right? So that's how you normally show up here. So, let's go into part two where I show you show up around town. To do that, I want to introduce a Heat Map tool, alright? Here's a Heat Map tool, right? So this is what a friend of mine just finished this recently, was recently released.

He's been working on it for two years. It's a Google approved service, so it's what it does is it pulls Google My Business Listing data as if the person was searching from that certain area. In this case, say, somebody was searching for concrete services near them and they fought and they were searching it from Sherland or Harrison area.

Now, in this an Early Concrete Co Incorporated case, they would show up as eighth, or sixth, or possibly, third, if they're on the South side of Harrison. So that shows based on the location where somebody's searching from makes it different, makes a huge difference. For instance, perhaps Early the owner of Early Concrete decides to come down here and he searched any.

I have to be working on a job down here just South of 75 and he searches, right? Well, I want to write my Google My Business comes up and so he searches for it and he comes up number one. Hey, we're doing pretty good around here, you know? But, say, he has the office location is up here by the intersection of Highway 2, right?

Then, near Rockton, say, you don't say he searches for his business over here. Well, he comes up with no, he doesn't show up because he's going to keep confronted with this type of deal, right? He's 1, 2, and 3, and then he's gonna be number nine, which you click on the "View All" and then go to the next page.

But nobody really ever does that. He's not gonna be appearing there, right? So that's what's going on. That's what a Heat Map tool does. In this next section, I want to show you how you specifically show up in Rockford, Illinois, alright? A A Construction, let's dive right into your listing here.

Now that you've seen, we've walked through the original statistics here on the for the lap listing. The maps updated, then they got an ad here. Then again, 5 15 it's going to go to the ads, then the majority of it's going to come down here to your map listings. And then, a little bit's going to go down the organic, but you already know that.

Let's dive into what and we've already explained a little bit of how the Heat Map tool works. But let's look at how yours is coming up specifically. Now, this isn't rigged or anything like that. This is to show that it's just all red for you, it's not like, it's a marketing tactic or anything like that because I can.

You've actually got two different listings. There's two A A Constructions over there and so you notice how they are two different ones there. I picked the one that had your address in it. If it's not the same one, then it's like okay then either way. This might be a newer one, I don't know which listing or if you're running both of them either way with their significant improvement for both.

Let's go to the other one and we'll have a little bit more to work with, I think, but let's go to here, okay? As you can see on the North side up by the Wisconsin border, your listing is not coming up very well at all Because you've got it all red there. Now, if you go down, if you as you go South, your listing starts to improve a little more because you start having.

You start getting down into the greens there and you're only on the first page of the back after the fold, after the "View All" button, right? Versus, you're down going to be down here versus you're gonna be on the second page there when you're 20. 20 means you're either in the position 20 or you're beyond that. 

That's how the map works. We don't pull past 20 because honestly, there's very little. You're not going to pull. Most people aren't going to go back to past that listing anyway, you know? They're gonna do that Amazon Analysis, right? So that's how this all listing all fits together. This is a view of your listing here.

You're doing best here. Honestly, it doesn't take very much to push your 5 into 3 if you've got some stuff that's pretty close to a 3 that way. What you can do is go into your Google My Business Listing and put in some posts and add some photos. And then, if you want to even go into that and add some, go to Geoimager, this is a free site.

You can go after that, just click "Start Now" and then you can upload the photos here, so say we just upload a photo. I don't even know what this one's going to be so I'll be surprised. This is one of my logos, but what we're doing here is inside out. Inside here, you can also put in your location or if you go into here.

So, we're going to go to Rockford, Illinois so, then it's going to prompt. You don't just search for places you need to be paying the 10, a month, or whatever to do it. It's not all that expensive, but you can go over here and go into search and go to under Chicago. So, we're going to go over here to Rockford.

So then what you do here since we want to rank for Rockford is then you can click the little flag inside here. And then you get this, then you get the longitude and latitude right of that area here. Then, what you can do here is you go, you add in the name of your photo. In this case, you guys are A A construction and we'll just put your city in there Rockford image description, this would often be.

You can add a little description or you can put a link to your website in here and then you click "Write Tags." Then, what you do is after you write the tags, you download the image, so then it'll come up inside here, and then you'll be able to. What I would do then is, save that as A A, your company name, company A A Construction or I can put Rockford in there.

And then, what you would do is upload that picture into your Google My Business Listing. And then, what that'll do is tell Google that you're "Hey, this is that I'm actually popping! I should pop, my company should serve this area! We should be popping up!" So that's one of the things that my company Steady Calls does.

That's one way to go about it. Now, I just want to show you that it's possible to switch your listings around and get more progress done. So, one company that's invested significantly in developing their Google My Business Listing is centerline concrete of Rockford.

They've noticed how they're taking up significant market share on both the West side and the down South side on right above Rockford itself. So that's just a quick snippet there. Let's go on. I want to show you exactly this more specifically how my company fits into this mix. So, let's go! Let's dive in, alright?

Now, you've seen where you stand against the dominant competition in Rockford and so now, it's time to figure out, okay? Well, what does it take to become the Rockford Concrete King. Well, that's where Steady Calls come in. How we help companies is that we service your Google My Business Listing so that Google comes to know you as the King of Rockford, Illinois whenever concrete services are searched for.

Think of Google in this case like your forgetful sister or wife. To stay at the top of their mind, you got to continually remind them that you of what you want them to do, you know? Your daughter doesn't empty the dishwasher when she should, or your son doesn't take out the trash, or your wife doesn't remember to lock the door when she comes in that night.

You got to continually paste sticky notes all over the house if you're more old-fashioned or you send them texts all the time, right? So, simply put that's what Steady Calls, my company does. We've pasted sticky notes or leave reminders for Google all over the place that you are the Rockford Concrete King and should rightfully come up there.

To find out more, you can scroll down the page and you'll see that we've included a button that says "See Your Heat Map." What happens then is if you when you click on that, you'll be come back to this style of page. If you're not showing up here, then you, then what needs to happen is you need to come over here and click clicking on the little down arrow. 

And then, you'll search for your company there, so you can scroll down to find it so say your Custom Concrete Coatings. What it'll do is flip the map rating, flip the map of information around, so it shows your company there. You can also explore how you compare to other companies in the Rockford, Illinois area.
