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?
H H Ramos Concrete, let's get into it!
So, earlier on, I've showed you how your listing comes up normally and showed you the statistics. As well as, I introduced you to the Heat Map tool. So, as I mentioned earlier, this Google Maps tool pulls in data from different locations, so enables you to see how your business listing comes appears around town.
Now, the we've color-coded this. One a friend of mine built it out a couple years ago. As I mentioned, I think earlier and it shows how you're doing based on where based on how where your listing comes up based on where somebody's searching from. So, the way this works is that you have green. Green is good.
Yellow is okay and red is you're not going to, you're not doing, so hot. So, another way to think of this is used by use of analogy of a stoplight. So, green, we all love green because we can continually go where we want go without delay. Yellow, we're going to have probably some delay but you might be able to squeak by.
Red means you're in for a lot of delay, right? 5, 10 minutes like the led, like do its thing. And then, you can move on. So, the interesting part is there's a the business analogy to this is very fits very well. Because the more green that you have, the more calls that you're going to get from your Google My Business Listing, and the more your business is able to get to where you want it to go, you know?
You can't make money unless you get calls from customers and you go out and be able to quote the quote what their projects are and win those bids. So that's how the what-, that's the importance as, you know? As you're aware of the Google My Business Listing is you got to make sure that it's visible to people who want and are interested in concrete services in Rockford Illinois.
So that's how your business listing is coming up, right? So, you're coming out. You're essentially things don't look very good from the point of view of your Google My Business Listing South Beloit. You're not getting really any calls from your listing there at Harrison. No, I mean Machesney Park, there's a no. You're not getting it from there but all hope is not lost here.
Because you're seeing you're getting a lot of calls here from the Cherry Valley, Edgewood, and by the Walmart down there, as well. So, you're getting some calls from this area but there's a lot of opportunity here, as well. Because any lower numbers here, single-digits can be fairly easily turned in your favor with some, with a little bit of work.
So, but before we dive into the how, let's look at another listing to make sure that it's show that. So that it shows that it's possible to get there because does any company really have the majority over Rockford? Now, Center Line Concrete is one of the has put a significant amount of effort into their listing because they're covering up a significant amount of market share both downtown and in the Suburban, more Suburban areas.
So and but as you are, that they don't get any really calls from Beloit because they're all right up there. Anyway, so that's this shows that it's possible to actually improve your listing and cover take over more market share. So, how do you get there? Well, that's what we're going to cover next, so hang on, 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.
