Drive a ton of Free Google Traffic using your Google My Business Listings!

If increasing views of your New and Used SRPs, VDPs and driving more traffic to fixed operations is important to you, keep reading!

To achieve more digital marketing exposure by leveraging a location-based strategy, every car dealer usually starts at the same place: creating a Google My Business listing.

And for good reason. In 2020, your Google My Business listing is much more than just a listing where people read and leave reviews!

Google My Business (GMB) – is the free tool from Google that helps car dealers manage their online presence across the search engine and its growing portfolio of marketing tools offers the greatest impact for brands seeking local exposure.

Way back in 2005 when Google first introduced Google Local /Maps its purpose was to serve as a simple listing to help people find you and let Google know where you are located and basic info about your dealership.

Fast forward 15 years and it is now the center piece in the Google local search results as well as a comprehensive knowledge panel when people search for your business.

The biggest catalyst for Google changing it from a simple listing to a powerful marketing tool is the massive growth of local mobile searches!

For the past several years Google has added some very powerful marketing tools designed to help searchers better engage with your business. Tools that when used properly increase SRP and VDP views, phone calls and walk ins to your dealership.

Problem for most dealers: Unfortunately, website designers and Digital Marketing Agencies are not paying much attention to your GMB, and as a result very few dealers understand the missed opportunities to increase new and used vehicle sales and service department visits.

As Google continues to add more marketing tools to your GMB it is time to take a closer look at how it can help your dealership.

Drive more traffic to your Sales, Service, and Parts departments using all the Free marketing tools Google is giving you!

The massive growth of Mobile searches over the past several years has brought about some major changes in the way Google shows results on the first page of local searches.

Google has made it no secret that your Google My Business listings are a major player in how Google wants users to engage and interact with your dealership.
