Can I manage my own GBP?
Sure, if you have the time to do so and fits into your schedule. But, GBP management is not an easy task to take on. So if you are having trouble finding the time or don’t have much knowledge about GBPs, our GBP Management service may be right for your local business.
How many posts should you make?
For best practices, you should have one post per day that your business is open. For most, this will be Monday through Friday. This shows Google that you are an active partner and are willing to go the extra mile. Google will reward you by having your GBP higher in the search, but there is more to it than that. Please read on…
Responding to Reviews:
Whether your reviews are good or bad, they should be responded to in a positive way, no matter what the review may be. You are allowed so many characters, not words to respond with and you should use most of that space to respond with. Call out their name, and location if applicable, thank them and also use the service they used. Always be polite and respond in a positive way.
Sometimes edits are needed on your GBP and this can be tedious work, but necessary for your GBP to be up to par with your services and offers.
How often you post offers and what type of offers you post should be changing. Here are some helpful tips to remember about GBP offers:
Offers should be directly related to your GBP. Offering discounts on nails while you are a dentist is not helpful or effective, but offering discounts for teeth whitening would be beneficial. Offer more than just one discount per month because people have needs that change over time and it will keep them coming back if they know you can fulfill their needs and wants.
Post offers at least once per week and not much more, otherwise, it may look too spammy.
Adding 10 Questions and Answers per month:
Your GBP should have Q & A’s for the visitors that come to your Google Business Profile. This will help when people are searching for answers to their questions about your business or services. Keep in mind the questions should be about your business and not promotional. As with offers, too many questions and answers per month may look spammy to Google, and not having enough just looks like a ghost town.
If your business has other services that may need to be added to GBP, we can do that too. This may not be needed, but it is there for you if it is.
This is the same with creating services, it may not be needed, but is there in case you have products to add to your GBP.
Adding Photos Monthly:
You should have photos added to your GBP monthly. This helps for your images to be found in Google for images of your business. Even though we add photos to your posts, images by themselves do help your GBP in Google.
