website update on Google

With the recent developments around the coronavirus (COVID-19) and lock-downs around NSW, there a few quick and important things you can do to let your customers know if you’ve made changes to your daily operations and are still open ( Just while we’re working on the directory in the meantime!)

Google My Business

If you currently have a Google My Business profile running at the moment (And you most certainly should, no matter what business you are!), then this is often the first thing your customers are seeing when they’re searching for your for your business or its services on Google. You know those big map results that come up when you search for something? Just like the below:

That’s it! And if you don’t have it set up, then you can manage it as a business owner when you sign up with a Google Account and download the App for Android or iPhone.
Give us a yell if you need a hand!

Once set up –  we recommend doing at least one of the following:

Have your opening hours changed?

If you’ve changed your hours, make sure that you inform customers.

Update opening hours

When should you use ‘special hours’ vs. ‘temporarily closed’?

If your business has specifically adjusted hours during this time or is temporarily closed for a period that is less than two weeks, you should use special hours. For longer extended closures you should use the temporarily closed status if you’re able to. There is no affect on your Google Rankings as Google has revised their system to account for this.

Update your business description

When customers search for you on Google, they’ll see your business description. Update it now to reflect any recent changes.

Outsourcing Social Media Marketing

Social media marketing is a lot of work for one person to do, and the truth is, you may not have someone on staff to handle it. Don’t assume that younger team members have the required skills to use social media for business, or that your marketing intern/assistant can add this to their plate. Even if you’re a social media guru in your personal life, it can be difficult to manage the business side of it effectively. Social media marketing for your business deserves attention, which can make outsourcing a great choice.

Social Media Marketing – What does it entail?

It’s easy to think of social media as something that only younger people use, or something you can disregard if most of your selling comes from a brick-and-mortar store. Neither is true – social media pages (like Facebook) are increasingly being used by older generations, and people of all ages will often begin their search for updated info on Facebook. An inactive or aging social media presence can communicate to people that your company might be out-of-touch, or even out-of-business.
