Advantages of Maps Marketing
Maps marketing is a good place to begin your marketing efforts. If you haven’t claimed and optimized your major directory listings this is a great place to start. After all, these third party sites are an extension of your website. When customer prospects search for your business, these websites are normally listed in the search offerings. If they contain contact information that is old and incorrect, your prospects may never call you.
One big advantage of Maps marketing is that it is essential. Wrong contact information on these sites, will cause prospective customers to go to your competitor if you are not listed properly. Many businesses forget that these websites also market your business and if they remain unclaimed, these directory listings can contain incorrect information and it makes it impossible for the business to respond to any negative reviews. Once a negative review is posted, it is extremely difficult to get the review eliminated. Your only hope is to bury it with 6-10 5-Star reviews.
Another huge advantage of Maps marketing is that it allows you to reach your audience through other avenues other than just your website. These directories many times are searched by customer prospects to locate a specific trade or service they are seeking. Having your listing optimized and looking sharp is highly advantageous when reaching out to new customers.
With any Maps marketing effort, you want to be sure that you control the contact and general company information a prospects sees. Because we always have our mobile phones on us and prospective customers use different methods to search for services they desire, you want to be sure that they see the correct information. Many times your business is not listed on some of the major directories which prevent some customers from seeing or calling your business. Other times the contact information or company description is not correct causing prospective customers to call your competitors. Claiming and optimizing your directory listings ensures that your business contact information is correct and that these potential prospect make their decisions with the best information possible.
Challenges of Maps Marketing
Despite its many advantages, Maps marketing does face some challenges for the business owner. Sometimes there are multiple listings for a company or another person has claimed your listing. Another common problem for the business owner is what directories should I be listed in. How do I optimize my listing so that I can get it ranked high. All of these questions are good and are sometimes difficult for any experts to handle. It is far easier and in most cases cheaper to have a professional claim your listings and ensure that they properly reflect the contact information for the business.
Another major challenge involved in Maps marketing is that most business owners do not have the time nor the desire to work on these listings. In most cases this is the reason that the listings have not been already claimed by the business. Take the headache out of this marketing task by hiring the experts to claim the list and optimize it.
