Google My Business Tips and Tricks from Social Media Expert Sommer Poquette with Keep it Real Social.

Google My Business can significantly impact people finding your business when using Google Search or Google Maps. Here are some great tips for using Google My Business for your small business.  

  • Text and images posted last for seven days. Have at least three active posts in your Google My Business feed.
  • Add a call to action to your posts; this increases link clicks and website traffic. ⠀
  • The ideal image size is 750×750 pixels. The smallest size accepted is 250×250 pixels. ⠀⠀
  • Don’t use #hashtags ⠀
  • Add photos regularly and make sure you upload a picture that’s named appropriately. Don’t upload photo2.jpg Photos increase your view and click rates.
  • Add a special offer to encourage new followers.⠀
  • Start using relevant emojis in your updates and posts. Google is starting to rank some emojis; this is new but worth experimenting with.
