Hey, what's up?
Kyle with Steady Calls here.
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. 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.
I'll introduce the purpose of Steady Calls, alright? 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? Number one, people searching for concrete services will search "Concrete Services Near Me," 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 Listing.
Then, the last few will go down here, but the majority come here. In order to find all the Google My Business Listing, 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.
Let's go into part two where I show you how you show up around town. To do that, I want to introduce a Heat Map tool, alright? Here's a Heat Map tool, right? 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.
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 8th or 6th or possibly 3rd if they're on the South side of Harrison. So that's 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 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.
Anyway, 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? Near Rockton 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 9, 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? Shear Concrete LLC, let's dive into your specific listing here out of the Rockford, Illinois area. So, over here, it looks like you're more positioned around Beloit, our map to a pulls in for you. You're pulled in via the Rockford area but it looks like you're more trying to position yourself well around Beloit.
So, give us a call, we'll run a map listing for Beloit itself for you. Here, that's when you're able to see how your company pops up in this area all throughout the Beloit, South Beloit area. So, here, it looks like you're coming up here 2's and 3's in the just on the West side of Beloit. But you're missing out on significant no- of significant numbers near Clinton and just South of shop here and out by Newark, you start to lose it too.
And then, it looks like you start to lose it down as you go South, as well, Machesney Park. Let's look over here Rockton, you're almost there in Rockton. So, how we normally handle a lot, how we? One of the techniques that we use to handle these single-digit numbers I want to share with you today, okay? So, let's dive into that!
You're going to use tools called Geoimgr (G-E-O-I-M-G-R) and what it does is enables you to grab Geotags and place them and embed them on your images in a super simple fashion, right? So, let's just say that you're cut, we're losing it over here in closer to Rockton, right? So, we want to come up as Rockton.
What we would do here is take an image something like, so a job that you're proud of perhaps a job that you even did near Rockton. You know that'd be even better but what you're going to do is upload a picture of that job or that maybe your new vehicle or something that's you're proud of. Up there, you're going to upload that.
You can click on it and then it pop. This pops up here right, so you can upload an image that way. But then, what you're going to do is go to select that area. So, one of the paid features of this tool is you've got search function but you can just zoom in using the plus (+) and SCROLL. And then, you could roll around the map that way.
To do that to roll, then what you're going to do is click on the map itself in Rockton we want to click. We want- then, we notice how the tags change. Notice how these numbers are changing down here. So, if we move to Roscoe, it's different than it is over in Rockton, right? So, we're pulling up and rocked in here, rocked and proper.
Then, we're going to just go in and we have to save. We want to save our images as something descriptive. So, parking lot, I have an image of a parking lot here so that's parking lot, and then we're going to go to Rockton, Rockton, Illinois here. And then, with what we did here? Maybe, it was a huge parking lot, is it 27 pour or how difficult by square feet or cubic feet.
You might go with that in there and at the local high school. So then, you're going to download this image, and then you're going to upload it again to your Google My Business Listing. What that's going to do is trigger Google. That's basically leaving a sticky note for Google that you are a concrete company operating out of Rockton, Illinois.
You're able- you should be one of the few popping up in that area. So, what they'll do is move, start to move. You'll start to notice it changing to 5 and 4 and 3 and eventually what you'll do is you'll come up as you normally would here for Rockford, Illinois here 1, 2, or 3. Then, people when people do it, you might pop up here.
You might have no reviews but at least you're having a shot at getting the call, right? So, first stage is getting up to these areas here, right? So that's the first thing that we all know that Steady Calls will help you with is getting to the top three of these listings here 1, 2, and 3 before the fold.
That basically everybody's behind, except for those the prestige companies, right? So then, what then we'll do is some reputation management which enables you to get reviews from clients who have rated you highly. So, 4 and 5-stars. What we'll do? We handle the three and below stars a little bit differently.
You're able to go back and correct whatever errors or whatever issues the customer has with what has with the job that you did. So then, they're able- then we're able to send a review out again and give another positive review instead of having a negative one, right? So, because we know that all upstanding companies go back and correct what they can, right?
If what's possible anyway, you know? So, let's dive into more about how Steady Calls works my company works and we'll go from there. Appreciate your time, 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?
