What is Google Maps Marketing?

Google Maps marketing is the process of using a Google My Business (GMB) listing to engage new customers and offer key details such as operating hours, photos, reviews, and store location. Google My Business is a convenient way for customers to search for, contact, and engage with your business.  

Local SEO, an integral aspect of Google Maps Marketing, is focused on optimising your maps listing to achieve better rankings and greater search engine visibility. 

As a valuable addition to both paid and organic search marketing strategies, Google Maps listings are especially impactful on mobile devices, boosting visibility and mobile user traffic. 

Shark Digital is skilled in crafting Local SEO campaigns that deliver tangible results and significant growth. 

Enhance Your Local SEO Performance

The effectiveness of local search results relies heavily on three key points the relevance of the listing, its distance from the searcher, and the prominence of the business.  

To excel in local SEO, maintaining an accurate and detailed Google My Business listing is fundamental. The process begins with listing your business on Google Maps and claiming your Google My Business page. 

Ensuring your Google Maps page is well-described, with current contact information and operational timings is essential. Supplementing your listing with images, videos, and customer reviews adds layers of trust and authenticity.  

A successful local SEO strategy encompasses a mix of on-site and off-site efforts, enhancing both the ranking and visibility of your business’s Google Maps listing. 

At Shark Digital, we pride ourselves on our unique and proven off-page local SEO approach, cultivated through extensive research and a wealth of experience. Our strategies have consistently led to extraordinary local SEO successes.

Google My Business & Local SEO Campaigns

Local SEO and website SEO are on two sides of the same coin. The key difference is that when it comes to local SEO, a GMB listing is optimised over a web page.  

At Shark Digital, we take a strategic approach to our local SEO campaigns. Our technical specialists conduct a comprehensive audit to learn more about the competitive landscape, examine its current performance, and identify growth areas. We then undertake a rigorous keyword research process to decide which search terms are the most valuable and should be optimised.  

Once the SEO campaign strategy is established, this is where Google Maps optimisation starts off. The optimisation process requires a fusion of both on-site and off-site activities that will enhance position and page ranking of a business’s listing on Google Maps: 

  • Keyword Research 
  • GMB Verification & Setup 
  • Business Listing Management & Optimisation 
  • Citation Audit 
  • Citation Building / Directory Submissions 
  • Authoritative Article Submissions 
  • GMB Post Management 
  • Geo Tagging 
  • Geo Grid Ranking Reports 
  • Local Landing Page Creation 

Multiple Location Performance Tracking

For businesses operating across multiple locations or franchises, implementing a local SEO campaign is fundamental to driving brand recognition, increasing visitor traffic, and enhancing store visits.  

Local SEO enables these enterprises to effectively target potential customers with store-specific updates, a marketing angle that is often not viable through a corporate or head office national website. 

Our suite of local SEO services includes advanced internal software for monitoring performance across multiple sites, giving clients a comprehensive view and comparison of store performances.  

We ensure clients are immediately notified of any underperformance or issues at individual stores. The multi-location performance tracking system is crucial for setting benchmarks and gaining in-depth insights as the campaign evolves.  

Having collaborated with numerous local and national multi-location businesses to foster growth and increase sales through local SEO, Shark Digital offers a complimentary SEO audit to showcase how our strategies can benefit your business.
