The New Normal in the Auto Industry Makes Your Google My Business Listings More Important Than Ever!
Google searches are skyrocketing, as more people than ever are doing all their research online for their next car purchase.
When it comes to local searches your Google My Business (GMB) listing is the first impression shoppers will have with your dealership.
This is why having a fully complete and continuously optimized GMB profile is paramount to success. Google is constantly adding new features and removing or updating current features making it nearly impossible to maintain all your GMBs to maximize Google traffic to your dealership.
Your Google My Business listing is one of your biggest traffic and phone call sources in your digital arsenal. Unfortunately, if you are like most dealers, someone claimed it and walked away.
Why? Because the fact is, very few Digital Marketing Agencies or SEO services understand how to manage and market GMBs, and your dealership is losing valuable traffic and sales!

Is your Review Monitoring service dropping the ball?
