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. Let's see T-Fanning Concrete! Let's dive into your specific listing now and let's pull. Let's around the Rockford area that's where you're- that's where somebody- that's where the map listing that we did come up if you do service a different area.
If you're centered on what's like Beloit or if you're sounding up even up by Orfordville or Janesville up here, schedule a 15-minute call with us. We'll run another map for you to pull your listing to see how you're doing in that specific area. So, this is where you're coming up. How you're coming up around Rockford?
Rockford is right down here so then you're able to see downtown Rockford. You're not pulling up any calls from there. 20 means that you're either on you're either the 20th result or you're beyond the 20th result on there. So, just for clarity, this is route 1, 2, 3. And then, if you click on "View All," you see even more, right?
So that's how this Heat Map works. Now, you're pulling up some listed closer to coming up around the Beloit area. So, what this means is that if you were to out to really get into say, you say, you were really serving Clinton and out by Sharon, you would. There are some simple techniques to pull to optimize your listing to come up that way.
I'm going to show you one now, okay? So, go to geoimgr.com and what that'll enable you to do is say you want to serve that area out by-. Let's see shop here! What are we talking about here up by Clinton, Shopiere, and Sharon, right? So that's where we're gonna go here. So then, you're able to go in and pick out that area.
Let's dive in a little bit deeper here I think. So, if you're able to note, we can plant a image here. So, first of all, for this is Geoimgr so it's a Geotag. It's going to Geotag your images, so you're going to upload your image here. And then, what you're going to do is pick the location on the map. Now, if you want to use the search function, that's a paid feature of this tool but you can find it for free.
Find your location on the map for free here. So then, what we do here? I've uploaded a picture of a parking lot and so then what you do is you save your image as where it is, right? So, you serve what it is and then where it is, right? So, let's say we're out by Shopiere, and then we've got we're also near Beloit WI.
So, we're up by Wisconsin here and then we're going to enable us to go out. We want to send people back to our website. So, if you throw a link to your website on the image there, then you download the image. And then, upload it again to your Google My Business Listing and that tells Google to say.
Because Google's bots will scan these numbers and then it'll pinpoint you right on the map. So, it'll be like "Okay! You did this job or you guys run your truck through this area, right?" So then, when somebody searches for- so for in your case, it might just be up Beloit, by Beloit WI. Then, you're going to come out, and then you have a higher chance of coming up in this area.
So that's more of what that's kind of the cycle of what happens. So that's one of the many different things you can do. One of the things that Steady Calls can also do for you. If you're more off, I'd rather have it done for me. So, it gets done fast and well. So, I don't know but let's dive into more what's my company Steady Calls can do for you in this next section, 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 comes 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? Simply put, that's what Steady Calls, my company does.
