Another Reason to Keep Your GMB Up-To-Date

Sandro: [00:00:02] Welcome to 60 second marketing my name is Sandro Galindo and I’m here with my partner in crime, world traveler Liz Hersh.

Sandro: [00:00:10] We are the podcast that helps your small business navigate its way through the online marketing world. In the time it takes to separate your laundry. Today Liz is going to give us another reason a personal reason, you should keep your google my business page updated.

Liz: [00:00:26] I know we’ve talked about this before but I have another example of why it really matters. So some of you may know that I was recently in Europe. We visited my husband and I visited the Champagne region of France. We had an amazing time visiting the champagne houses and touring the cellars where the champagne is made and fermented and all that magical stuff that happens down there. One of the places that we really wanted to visit was the big one, Moët & Chandon. And lo and behold they don’t have any hours on their Google my business page and I don’t think their Web site was updated either.

Liz: [00:01:04] My husband tried to email them to set up a cellar tour and it just didn’t happen. And what was so frustrating was that when we actually walked past their location their hours were posted on a sign and they WERE open we totally could have gone. So I was I was really bummed and it kind of sucks for them too because we sampled some amazing champagne and that’s the champagne that I want to drink forever now. The good stuff. So we’re going to be getting other brands we’re not going to be buying Moët because you know we don’t have a personal connection to it so even if you are a big brand like Moët, you should still take the time to update your web. Update your google my business page keep it actively updated so that way you can continue to attract clients and customers and get loyal customers in the future.

Sandro: [00:01:57] We talk about Google because it’s so important it’s the 500 pound gorilla in the room and it’s such a simple thing to do even if you have don’t have time to do other things. It’s just one simple great way to keep your customers happy. So did you buy any champagne did you bring some home?

Liz: [00:02:12] We didn’t bring any home because it’s kind of a pain. . . and a lot of the big names we can get here in the states. It’ll be a little trickier for some of the smaller champagne houses but we’ll just have to go back.

Sandro: [00:02:28] If you want to learn the difference between Cru and Grand Cru champagne then, drop us an email!
