Ranking Local Business In Google Maps
As a small local business you likely do not have the budget or interest in competing with state and nationwide companies. Google recognise this and has created a sub ranking system called Google My Business for very local businesses to directly capture local consumer traffic. This local business ranking system operates on a local micro basis and allows smaller business to appear in a prominent positions in what is called the local map pack, snack pack or three pack at the top of the first page. As part of our monthly SEO packages we will optimise your business to appear in the map pack and local suburbs.
Small Business Review Funnels
Conveying how good your business is in an instant could not be accomplished better than having great testimonials in the form of Google reviews right in your SERP results and in your Google My Business listing. We will create an effective review funnels for your business. No more clumsy requests for a review just send your happy clients a custom link that opens automatically to google review with five stars pre-selected. Our research shows this dramatically increases the change of a client leaving a review. We also employ SEO strategies to then optimise those Google reviews so they provide boost to your business, appear more prominently and rank on their own.
Google My Business Management For Small Business SEO
Our extensive testing and research shows that local small businesses that have and who regularly update their Google My Business listing consistently outperform their competitor in the local Google map pack and in suburb specific searches. There are many little quirks that can be tweaked in the Google My Business console to give a measurable advantage to your business. Additionally, applying user experience marketing techniques to your GB listing will greatly increase the number of calls and visit your business will receive from the best types of customers – Ones that are close to your business. Often local businesses spread themselves to thin and would be better off concentrating their efforts on 3-6 local suburbs and their GMB listing first instead of chasing a city wide SEO ranking. That is why we highly recommend adding Google My Business Local SEO strategies to your small business marketing plan.

Small Business SEO Video Ranking
There is now an additional local feature in Googles local search engine results. It is being called the small business local video pack and provides a great opportunity for local businesses to produce promotion and informational video and have it ranked specifically for the local video pack. Our testing shows even below average quality videos convert to enquires and sales in significant numbers. The added bonus of ranking the videos is you also can gain a city or national and sometimes international profile and some quality backlinks. We believe every small business should have at least one ranked video for every suburb and service they target.

Advisory Notice: This service suspended
We have discontinued this service as we feel it no longer can consistently provide any benefit to ranking your business in the local business map pack, due to changes in Googles algrythmn. We have to this conclusion after extensive testing in conjunction with Sterling Market Intelligence. The SEO custom map testing clearly showed no to only a temporary effect from a wide rank of google map stacking techniques being marketed. Therefore this goes against our method of providing only evidence based services. It is our recommendation to be extremely cautious if purchasing this type of service. While we measured no toxic effect it is certainly SEO budget money better spent elsewhere to ranking locally.
