40 years ago, it was advisable that when you open your business, the name was the most critical. Back then, it was advisable to start your business name with a letter early in the alphabet. The reasoning behind this was simple. Up until the technology boom, everything was done on paper, including marketing. One of the first things that a new business owner did was call the local phone company and have their listing added. Then once a year, all of the listings were published. If the cut-off date to be listed in a printed phone book was December 31, and you opened your business on January 1, chances are, you would have to wait an entire year to have your phone number published.
The option for 411 was still available, but 40 years ago, calling 411 for information was not always free with your phone service. Some phone companies charged anywhere from $0.25 to $0.90 just to get one phone number. Payphones were plentiful and nearly every payphone had a phone book. The phrase “Here’s a quarter, call someone who cares” became popular, as most payphones were only a quarter to call someone, locally of course. Long-distance was not included in most phone plans. People had a long-distance plan. Popular plans allowed for so many MINUTES of long-distance for a set price.
With advances in technology, the phone book is obsolete. Who needs a phone book when you have Google My Business? So, what exactly is a Google Business Listing and how do you get one? Simply put, a Google My Business listing is a new-age form of a phone book, with some improvements, of course. Instead of flipping through pages, HOPING that someone that can fix your tire is open on a Sunday, you have a magical device at the touch of your fingers. Google is a new-age business directory. You can search for businesses ANYWHERE in the world and not pay a dime to get information.
This benefits a business in several ways. The first benefit to a Google Business listing is that it is free. Yes, that is correct. A Google My Business Listing is absolutely free. There are not too many things in this world that are free. With that being said, however, free does not always mean perfect. There is a method to an effective Google My Business listing. Most people think that it is simply entering your name, address and picking a couple of categories. While those steps are included, those are not the only things that you can do to fully maximize your Google My Business Listing. In order to fully maximize your Google My Business Listing, you must enter specific keywords, STRATEGICALLY place them in specific places, and hope that Google does not reject your listing.
