Discussion on last month’s Google My Business topic (see link & info below)
Reminder: These are informal lunch meetings where everyone brings their own lunch and drink – and joins in conversation after the initial agenda. Of course, there will be discussions throughout the hour!
Thank you to Patrick Buttke & Chance Haugen of “Famous in a Small Town” for providing an overview, some tips, and stressing the importance – of “Google My Business”. I’ve provided a video of the meeting below… this is not a formal presentation video – just the raw discussion of our informal Social Media Lunch meetings! I knew a couple of regulars were unable to make this meeting so I videotaped the meeting on this very important topic! We will discuss a few of the highlights at this month’s meeting and see who has updated their Google listing – and who might be looking for a little help yet to get updated.
During the May presentation, Patrick mentioned one of their clients – DNA Guide Service (with permission of course!) I also would like to take a moment to also use them as an example.
When you can type in “minnesota duck hunting” into the Google search – and DNA Guide Service comes up on the first page in the search – and comes up #1 in Google’s business map visual – that is good for DNA Guide Service AND good for Ortonville/Big Stone Lake/MNbump! As you can see, we’re on the map… and they have quite a marketing reach on Google for duck hunters to find this business. DNR Guide service further follows up their marketing reach with a beautiful website – great photos & videos to keep website visitor’s attention – AND, shows off our beautiful landscape to entice a visit.
Your Google Business Listing is a very important tool for your business and for the marketing of our area as a great place to visit & live.
