Free Clicks versus Pay Per Click
When Google displays a local search results page, it is a fact that for every one click on a paid search ad there are 11.8 Free Google clicks available. As Google continues to display Google Business Profiles above your website links most of those Free clicks should be coming from your Google My Business – Google Maps data points.
In other words, if you are not properly optimizing and marketing your GMBs and Maps profiles you are losing potential customers. We help you increase not only clicks to your website, but also phone calls and walk ins to your sales and fixed operations.
While your competition is scratching their heads wondering what you are doing, you will be dominating the Google Local Search and Google Maps results!
Build your Brand and Protect your Reputation with our GMB – Google Maps Management and Security service.
Managing your Sales, Service, and Parts GMBs and Maps listings requires expertise, time, and knowledge of Google best practices.
Very few in-house employees or digital agencies have the time or the ability to do this effectively.
What happens if some SEO company or competitor edits your Google My Business listing and changes your hours, your business name, or categories? Yes, this happens all the time!
Worse yet, what will you do if you receive a GMB – Maps suspension, even if you did nothing wrong? Not knowing how to avoid GMB suspensions or the GMB reinstatement process can cost your dealer thousands of website clicks, phone calls, and walk in traffic.

GMB Management and Marketing Frequently Asked Questions
We already have a GMB, why do we need more?
Google prefers that your main GMB be directed towards your Sales department. Having Service and Parts GMBs and Maps listings allows you to target more keywords across Google as well as display the correct phone number and hours for each department.
It’s just a business listing, why do I need a service?
Four years ago, we would have agreed with you. The reason we are here today is Google has redesigned the local search pages and added numerous marketing tools to your GMB profiles. Your Google My Business profile and Google Maps marker is now a major traffic driver and should be handled as such.
Can’t someone at my dealership handle this?
Absolutely! However, if you want it to deliver more clicks, leads, and phone calls every month you need GMB experts that understand how Google works and are on top of everything on a daily basis. Managing your Sales, Service and Parts GMBs are time consuming and require daily attention. Our experience has shown that in-house dealership maintenance often fails due to inexperience or just lack of time.
Can I really increase new and used VDP views with my GMB?
