Local Service Businesses, do you have your location on your Facebook and other social media business pages?
I recently went searching for a handyman service on Facebook by a name I had been given. I found five businesses with the same name! Only two of them had their location listed. None of them were in my area. That handyman, whoever he may be, lost business from word-of-mouth marketing that day. We all know that word-of-mouth is the life blood of small local businesses, but it failed him that day because of something that takes less than five minutes.
Imagine this, there are other businesses around the country that have similar services and names as your business that you may not even be aware of. People use social media search, especially Facebook, just like Google when looking for home service help. Maybe your business has been recommended by customers... but that new clientele coming your way can't verify they have found you if your location is not on your page!
If you do not add your location, you are potentially missing out on thousands of inquiries, you don't even know about, because the search stops on the search page AND even if they click on your business page, there’s no indication you are local.
Search engines whether Google, Bing, or social media are first and foremost locally driven.
It's quick and it's easy to add your location, make sure you do it today!
