What’s up guys Seb here in Santa Monica, it’s a very, uh, gloomy kind of rainy Thursday here in LA, which is not very common, not sure what you’re listening at, but, uh, regardless of where you’re listening at this digital marketing public service announcement that I’m going to give you is very important. No matter what kind of business you have, claim your Google listing. What that means is it will essentially show up on Google maps. They’re going to actually send you a physical card. You do it online, and they send you a physical card. You later on call a phone number. Are you going when you go to a certain website to confirm that that is a fact, you, and that’s where you physically are, where your business is now, this isn’t just important for you. If you’ve got a coffee shop, um, or a pizza store or a restaurant, because you’re thinking, okay, I want to show up on Google maps.
I’ve got my directions that I’m going to my friend’s house and people type, you know, they search on the way, you know, like coffee near me or something like that. Right? So then it shows up on Google maps, quick detour. That’s great for you to get a physical business. You want people walking into the door. It’s not always the case. You actually want to be on Google maps for just about everything. Services are great to be on there. Even if you’ve got a digital marketer agency, you want to claim your Google listing now is not only good for showing up on maps, which is kind of the logical way to think about this. But it’s also great for SEO. It’s actually an SEO ranking factor. Think about it as the old school yellow pages. If you had any kind of, you wanted to make sure that your business was listed on the yellow pages, same thing here. So make sure you claim your Google listing. That’s my digital PSA for today, guys. I hope it was helpful. Next time guys. Peace.
