Good question. We are visual and we want to "see before we buy", as a rule. The Map is the window to your local business, and if your map listing is active and visual, clients will see the validity. Without the visual, the customer will look elsewhere for one they can see and "look in the window". That's why you need photos..
Yes. When a potential client or customer looks up a business category in your area, their answer will usually display both Map and search results. They go hand in hand. Businesses need both because the client is looking for active and busy local businesses.
Of course, you can. Like any website, or listing on the Internet, you need to learn what NOT to do as well as what you NEED to do. Business owners are experts at what they offer their customers. So are we.
All of your customers use cell phones. Cell phones are also GPS devices. Mobile phone tracking is a process for identifying the location of a cell phone. That information is extremely useful to both the user and local businesses. For example, when you are looking for a premium cup of coffee, you want the one around the corner; not the headquarters in Seattle. Cell phones give customers what they are looking for locally. Savy Business owners use all the Local Business tools available to get found, and we offer services to optimize your listings.
Does your website simply provide your business and contact information? Shouldn't it do more than that? Would it be nice if it was secure and properly updated?
How much old content do you have? Do you know that WordPress has a 60.8% market share of CMS (Content Management Systems)? Do you know that premium website hosting is probably less than 1/2 of what most businesses pay? Call us for more details

Most people know what they want as a result, but they don't know how to get there to achieve that result. That's okay, let's brainstorm together, and in a few minutes, we can outline a plan to reach that result with you, which is usually just to get the phone to ring and get new clients and customers. It's not rocket science, but there is a road map that we need to follow, with do’s and don'ts along the way
Did you know that Website changes can be done in a Staging Area?
You can test your website in a "Sandbox" until it's ready to Go Live
No need to confuse search engines with updates and changes until you are happy with them.
We will give you a staging area (ex, yoursitename/staging) Make all the changes you want offline,
then go online when you're satisfied.
It's really that simple
It's best not to guess, "What Does This Button do?" when you are updating your Map listings.
Driving a race car may look easy, but it obviously is not as easy as it looks. Is easy to press the wrong buttons when you're updating a Map list category, attribute, description, etc. Furthermore, many times an update can get rejected for not complying with the terms of service. You're better off at least listening to the professionals tell you what each entry is intended for. Don't guess, don't take unnecessary chances.
A Testimonial on your Website is wasted Real Estate.
People don't want to read a page on your website full of "supposed" Testimonial about how great your business is. Let's be honest. Do you believe websites that copy and paste those? However, we do tend to believe "Reviews" that are left on Amazon, Google, and Yelp, for the most part. Do you know the difference between a "Review and a Testimonial"?
