Edmonton CPA | Google Reviews an Important Role to Finding Customers
Many business owners are not aware of the role Google reviews plays in finding customers says Edmonton CPA. And may end up struggling trying to find customers more than they should.
In fact, while 50% of all small businesses in Canada eventually fail. 42% of all small businesses that fail. Fail because they are unable to find the customers they need to purchase their products and services.
Therefore, it is not just important for business owner to have a marketing plan in their business. They need to ensure that the marketing plan is as effective as possible. In order to find the customers they need.
One thing that business owners can do. That will make all the other marketing efforts improved. Is getting a Google my business page, or Google places listing for their business.
The benefit to this says Edmonton CPA is that it is completely free. And it will not only allow a business owner to start generating Google reviews in their business.
But it will also allow an entrepreneurs business to show up on the first page of Google search results. It will show up in the map listings, just below the paid Google ads. And above the organic search results.
This is incredibly beneficial for business owners to have. But it can be even more beneficial than this says Edmonton CPA. Because it will allow them to get Google reviews.
And the more Google reviews a business has, the higher up in the organic search results they will appear. However, in order for that to happen. A business needs to have a minimum number of Google reviews.
That minimum threshold of reviews that a business owner needs to get to is forty. Because forty Google reviews can be difficult to achieve. Which means that the business is very good at what they do.
Underneath forty, and that can appear as though only an entrepreneur’s family or friends left Google reviews. And is less likely to inspire confidence in potential customers when they do a Google search.
However, because forty is seen as difficult to achieve. And it actually is, business owners need to work very hard at achieving this number. Which is why Edmonton CPA recommends starting early in the business to achieve this.
Not only do they need to have the Google my business page. But they also need to ensure that they are asking customers for reviews. And asking not just once, but following up to ensure they do it.
They also should come up with the script that they give their staff. So that their staff can ask customers for reviews consistently. So that they can be more likely to get forty reviews quickly.
Once an entrepreneur gets to forty reviews. They should focus on getting reviews about once a month. So that they can remain relevant to their customers. And also, once they have forty reviews.
They will start ranking higher in Google search engine results. To help them find even more customers, who will be confident in purchasing products and services from that business.
