Making a "WHAT'S NEW" Post on Google My Business

 

The “What’s New” post is basically like a news tab. It’s a way for people seeing your profile in search results to know the latest and greatest happenings for your business. Launching a new product? Uploaded a new video to your YouTube Channel? Celebrating a company anniversary? All of these are great stories for you to put out there and share with people!

Steps for crafting a Google My Business What’s New post:

First: Image or Video.

Do Not Use Stock Images! They look cheap and inauthentic and they’re not your business. People searching for your goods and services want to see who you are and what your business has to offer. Even more exciting: use a 10 - 30-second Video! 

Second: Writing your post.

Google gives you 1,500 characters to fill, which is a lot of real estate. So give every detail you want to share including important URL’s that become clickable when the post goes live.

Third: Add A Button.

While this is technically optional, treat it as essential because it gives people a direct way to engage with your post. You’re given six different button types:

  1. Book – Lets people go directly to your appointment setter and schedule an appointment.

  2. Order Online – If you’re promoting a product or service, people can buy on the spot!

  3. Buy – Similar to Order Online you can send people to a direct link and they can purchase.

  4. Learn More – If you’ve got a blog, article, or video, you can add the link for people to use.

  5. Sign Up – This is a great way for people to subscribe to your newsletter or email list.

  6. Call Now – With a simple button, people can now call your business directly!

Remember to keep posting! After 7 days your Google My Business Profile will automatically reset to its default presentation, so post often! Posts don’t disappear completely, they go into your post archive which is still accessible but not as easy for people to find if you’re not posting regularly. Posting once a week is fine, but not great. We’re seeing a lot more user engagement with direct calls and sign-ups through GMB for our clients by posting 2-3 times a week.

HAPPY CLIENTS

SEO Ann Arbor has assisted our Global Sales Team by increasing our number of customer inquiries, leads, and sales. This has been achieved by the efficient and effective management of our SEO process, which is continually improving month by month.

This company got me to the top of page one on Google. If you are not doing any Internet marketing or are not happy with who is doing your Internet marketing I would highly recommend this company. Great people and the results are clear!

I recently requested that SEO Ann Arbor update my search engine optimization concerning Geothermal Heating and Cooling. After a short time of under a month we were listed on the first page of Google! I received a call from an out of state construction firm who found our company only because of the excellent work of SEO Ann Arbor. This contact purchased a system and paid for the work of SEO Ann Arbor 20 times over. This is truly one of the best business decisions I have ever made to have them update our SEO.

The owner, Nick, is willing to meet you face-to-face, listen to your concerns, and meet your needs. Our company, Mussio Painting, has skyrocketed to the top of Google and this result has created enough business that I had to turn down five to six calls a day this past season. In a digital world, finding the right SEO company is a must. Let Nick and his team at SEO Ann Arbor help you increase your business opportunities. They are experts in marketing and will take you to the top! SEO Ann Arbor is important part of my business!

I'm truly proud of the work and donations we've done on the Carr Fire – there is no way we could have done the amount of work we did and in turn donate the amount of money we were able to without your help. I think we'll end up donating over $10,000 back to homeowners who lost their homes in the fire ... You guys have been awesome.
