Taming Google Maps! How to make your listing yours...
 

People are using the Google Maps listings
more & more for contact info - is yours correct?

our THOUGHTS
 

One of our clients called us with a problem - their contact info listed in Google Maps was incorrect, it was actually merged with a company of a similar name. They were finding MANY calls were heading over to the other company in error. Some clients even drove to the incorrect address!

It became apparent many people use the contact info listed by Google as a quick way to locate companies.

Google sends out programming scripts to locate business and add them to their Maps listing - often the info can be gathered from incorrect sources thus displaying wrong information.

You can take ownership of your listing and control the data that is presented! Add more than just an address or a phone number... once you have control you can add:

  • Your Company logo
  • Hours of operation
  • Business categories
  • Photos
  • Video
  • Other info: parking options, product lines etc.
